Grand Theft Auto V, the highly anticipated Rockstar developed console game landing on PlayStation and Xbox tomorrow, today gets a companion app for iPhone and iPad called “iFruit”. For the uninitiated, “iFruit” is what Grand Theft Auto calls iPhones in the game. You can customize vehicles to be used in the game using the new app, but the part that really caught our eye was the ability to train your in-game dog named Chop.
Chop is a Rottweiler that accompanies the Franklin character in the GTA V game, and the new iFruit app will let you train Chop to be a better companion when playing the game.
Depth of content, high production values, defecation. It’s the app that has it all. Because who doesn’t love tending to a virtual pet? Chop is Franklin’s canine sidekick in Grand Theft Auto V. Look after him well in the “Chop the Dog” app and you will reap the benefits when playing as Franklin in Grand Theft Auto V. Pet him, feed and water him, play fetch and tug-of-war, teach him tricks. Too much or too little of an activity, however, will cause Chop to become unhappy, and nobody likes an unhappy Rottweiler. Take Chop on walks to give him a chance to work off last night’s steak and Piswasser and to mark his turf in the hood – defending his ladies, fending off gang members and even protecting the beach babes of Los Santos from unsightly tan lines by removing their bikinis.
By training Chop in the iFruit iOS app, you’ll be able to make him more helpful when playing the full game on your Xbox or Playstation. You can even teach him tricks, train him to “sniff out the nearest hidden items when the player takes him for a walk,” and earn credits by taking care of Chop in order to purchase new collars.
The free Grand Theft Auto V: iFruit app is available on the App Store now for iPhone and iPad.
