Rockstar Finally Releases GTA V iFruit App, Sadly It’s Pretty Late to the Party


If you have yet to complete Grand Theft Auto V on your Xbox or PS3, then maybe there is still time to get some use out of newly released iFruit app for Android from Rockstar Games. The app is used as a companion app to the campaign mode in the game, allowing you to teach your dog Chop new tricks, as well as customize personal vehicles in the game. Unfortunately, the GTA V has been out for some time now, and iOS users have been enjoying access to the app since the game’s release. 

If you are like me, and have already completed the game in its entirety, then there is no use in having it any longer. Issues such as this is need to be addressed, especially when we are talking about the world’s most-used mobile operating system. Kind of a slap in the face to Android users.

The app is free, so go grab it by following the Play link down below.

Play Link

  • LG Chancellor

    not compatible with lg droid 2

  • Prince Campbell III

    Garbage, all I’m getting is a black screen on my Note 2. I will try it again, if it still does it, I’m done.

  • Lionel Leutz

    i love how big of a deal people are making it out to be on the app reviews. after seeing what it can do, i’m not even gonna bother downloading it. i’m honestly just waiting on this stimulus package to get back to playing online. i just wonder how long they’ll keep us hanging on that.

  • hb

    Get over it. Its just a pointless app. I used it once for my iPhone, its more of a pointless annoyance than anything worth using

  • Higher_Ground

    Oh well, maybe having to start completely over because I didn’t read the spoilers and save the assassination mission for the end won’t be so bad afterall.
    Nah… still not downloading it.

  • Liam

    do you have to be online to use this app?

    • Your a moron

      No, The app uses magic mind bullets to get your modifications and license plate into the game

  • Raidy

    Just installed it on my Note II. Seems pretty much the same as the version i installed on my work iPad many moons go. It’s mostly useless, but at least now it will be handier to grab.

  • Travis Walls

    For me, I found the game didn’t really “start” until I burned my way through the heists and finished the main storyline in a couple of days. Now I’m having fun with the other half of the game. I’m 77.9% done and welcome this app (took ’em long enough). Maybe Franklin will finally stop yelling about Chop’s little (er… big) presents.

  • AbbyZFresh

    I already stopped caring GTA 5 after beating the story and 2 weeks of multiplayer. This app will not do anything.

  • droidrazredge

    I wonder when this will be released on the Windows Phone and Blackberry Markets ? =D

  • droidrazredge

    Yes, Now I can finally change my license plate to: NEXUS5 and customize my cars to match Droid Life colors.

  • a3uge

    This app is horrible. Healthcare.gov is more functional. I finally got it to enter my DOB (hint, click submit, wait for it to fail), but it wouldn’t open up the menu for a presumed list of options. I can see why they were reluctant to release it.

  • SplashMTN

    I had an iPhone for about 1.5 months when the ifruit app came out and it didn’t even work for at least the first 2 weeks or so, so I didn’t even it. I was so happy to get back to android, even if it’s just a $50 Gnex.

  • *cough* Injustice Gods Among Us *cough* …sigh

  • BulletTooth_Tony

    Well… If you play online, you can change your license plate finally. Granted nobody else has used yours in the past month.

  • WAldenIV

    Why is this app incompatible with so many devices? Just let us change our license plates on the Social Club website.

    • Dave12308

      Why the hell are Rockstar’s apps so incompatible to begin with? A year after the Droid DNA releases and I still can’t play two out of 3 Rockstar games i’ve purchased. For no good reason Vice City and Max Payne simply are “not compatible with my device”. If they were not compatible, they wouldn’t work when I sideloaded them.

  • Brandon Kesler

    For some reason it is saying incompatible with my DROID MAXX. So close, yet so far…

  • dhirensavalia

    “Kind of a slap in the face to Android users”

    I haven’t seen a good app that was released to Android first. (Not counting GApps) It’s either iOS and then Android or both at the same time.

    • Tac

      Gapps seem to come out on iOS first too…

      • undeadwolfy

        This is actually true. iDevices got the Google Maps update months before we did. What the hell?

        • Ryuuie

          It’s more than likely that iOS is simply a beta testing OS to Google then they roll out a better featured version to Android later.

          Hangouts, for example, was updated on iOS to get a Google Voice and VOIP functionality. It was confirmed that it WILL come to Android, but with more features than just that.

    • Reminds me of Mass Effect 3. There was an app on iOS and not Android. But without the app, you couldn’t reach 100% readiness in the game itself.


    Well, maybe I’ll use it when GTA V comes to PC.

  • Tyler Casilio

    the App doesn’t work on the Droid DNA! What the hell!!!

    • rvcjew

      yeah agreed tried side loading it but it says i haven’t purchased this free app wtf.

  • NorCalGuy

    Tim u got 100% completion? Spaceship? Stunt jumps? Sub parts? Chop helps you find some pieces so if your going for 100% chop can be a help.

    • I got to 93% and said, “I’m bored now.” That was it. 😛

    • Rob

      I’m at 97%, got all of the letter scraps and spaceship parts, about 9 stunt jumps left and a little over half of the under the bridge flights and all of the knife flights. Close to a third to halfway with the sub parts and nuclear waste.

  • EvanTheGamer

    And it’s Xbox 360, Tim, not just simply Xbox. Come on…some people out there might get confused. lol

    • Or just say 360

      • EvanTheGamer


        • If you can’t just assume I’m talking about the Xbox 360, may God have mercy on your soul. 😛

          • EvanTheGamer

            I was sorta just kidding. Honsstly though, I always refer to the Xbox 360 as either 360 or Xbox 360, but never only Xbox, unless I’m actually talking about the 2001 console. lol

            But hey, each their own. 🙂

  • EvanTheGamer

    Well it’s about damned time they finally released this app on Android.

    Better late than never.

  • engwalker

    Incompatible with all my devices, awesome.

    • Steve

      Gotta love the most used and yet most useless operating system out there. iOS fte!! 😀

      • Megamerger

        Do you realize this has nothing to do with the OS but rather with R* developers. And do you also realize that there are not much, much more apps available (on top of non-google play ones) on Android than iOS?

        Of course you don’t, because you comment on the internet.

        • RBC

          Says the person commenting on the internet…. DERP!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • aBabyPenguin

    I haven’t played the game so I can’t judge if it is fun or not but as a student in a school for game design, I have to say that the art looks like crap… What’s up with the dog’s hind leg? It looks like it’s made of a piece of spaghetti, and his head looks too small in proportion to his body. Also the doghouse is completely flat while everything else has perspective.

    If this was any other game on the play store, I wouldn’t download it after looking at that screenshot.


    • Melting Granite

      Good luck with that. Really. Unless you have something really unique, Apple users got all the good ones a month and a half ago.

      • eskey

        Do i need to have PSN online to use this app?

    • Koozer Mox

      This app doesn’t even work for half of android phones….. good luck.

  • bagheadinc

    Apparently it’s not available for quite a few devices. Not compatible with my Droid Maxx and I’ve seen several of my friends complain online that it doesn’t work with their phone either.

    I’m just talking about downloading it via the Play Store, I’ve not tried sideloading it. I’ve a feeling it will work fine if sideloaded, but seems strange to have to do that.


      It’s compatible with my Moto X, GNexus, and Xyboard but not my OG Droid. Those are the only devices which show up on my play store right now, but I can understand not supporting the OG Droid anymore…

      • bagheadinc

        That’s weird that it’s compatible with the Moto X and not my Droid Maxx, since they are so similar.

        • SpringRubber

          Not compatible with my Droid 4 either despite it being a fairly modern device running Jelly Bean. Sounds like Rockstar basically decided that if your Android device isn’t among the top devices right now (Galaxy SIII/S4/Note 2/3, HTC One, Moto X, Nexus 7, etc.), you’re SOL. I bet they’re still supporting devices like the iPhone 4, though. Honestly, I don’t think Rockstar gives a care about Android users. They got their exclusivity money from Apple, and they’re happy.

  • T4rd

    Not too late for me. I’m waiting for the PS4 to play it since I’m a full time worker and student at the moment with a family of four to tend to. No time for games for me anymore. =( I’m hoping to play it over Christmas break.

    • Frank Urbanski

      I don’t think they announced it for next gen.

      • T4rd

        Yeah, I meant buy it on PSN and play it on PS4. I know they will have PS3 games available on PS4 through PSN, but not sure what will be available at launch, if anything.

        • aBabyPenguin

          So far the only chance we have of playing PS3 games on PS4 is GAIKAI. GAIKAI is expected to launch early next year.

          • T4rd

            Ahh, I could have swore I read that Sony will port popular PS3 games to PS4 via the PSN store. Oh well, guess I’ll get GTA V for 360 or PS3 for Christmas then.

          • ERIFNOMI

            They said something about letting you re-buy your cross-gen games if you buy them from PSN. So, it’ll probably be something like $10 to go from the PS3 version of GTA V to the PS4 version.

          • Trickie Tom

            Maybe so for 1st party, but for 3rd party, its a big no.. And with the way the game was designed to read from 2 sources, disc and hdd, I dont see this coming to Gaikai.. So you best buy that game now and enjoy it, or just pass up on GTA5..

        • Jeremy Wray

          You are likely looking at a summer 2014 release of GTA5 on next gen systems since they will likely just port the PC version they are likely working on now. Lots of likely’s, nothing in stone.

    • BulletTooth_Tony

      Not announced, but damn near a shoe in. But I think GTA Online is coming as a stand alone first.

  • Charlie Val

    At least now they can change their license plate.

  • Tac

    Wow 241mb, that’s ridiculous.

    • Justin Kos

      Whats more redic is that phones are 16gb

      • Tac

        As someone with a 32gb gnex I’m not too concerned about space. I’m more concerned with what is taking up all that space. The app is a glorified tamagotchi/license plate changed. Sounds like the work put in on the app was extremely sloppy.

        • Justin Kos

          I’m a n4 user lol… I was under the impression it did more if that’s the case that’s some sloppy coding! Lol

        • Ryuuie

          It’s no better on iOS either. Rockstar just doesn’t know how to create mobile apps.

  • jaredgreenwald

    Good thing I beat the game weeks ago.
