GTA 5 companion apps coming to Windows Phone soon


One of the most anticipated games of the year is about to launch in the next few hours. Of course we’re talking about Grand Theft Auto V, the sequel to the 2008 game of the same name. GTA5 has been dominating gaming sites today with excellent reviews. Rockstar, the developer studio behind the game, has created a companion iPhone app for GTA5. This app, and another, will come to Windows Phone.


The first app is called iFruit, and it’s actually two apps in one. One section is called Los Santos Customs. From the app you can create your own vehicles to use in the game. You can upgrade your parts, choose window tints, paint color, and even custom license plates. Once you’re done creating, just send in your order and you will be notified in the game when it’s ready to be picked up from the shop. How cool is that?!

The second part of the app is called Chop the Dog.┬áIn this part of the app you can take care of Franklin’s virtual canine companion. But why would you want a virtual pet? If you take of the dog well you will get in-game benefits.If happy, he can be a useful companion in the game. He can even help fend off gang members.


The second app is just a virtual manual for playing the game. Obviously a game of this magnitude has a ton of things to discover. The virtual manual will go beyond what they could fit in the paper pamphlet inside the video game case. If you’re stuck in a certain part of the game this could help you out. We don’t know when these apps will launch, but it’s nice to at least be in the conversation.
