Quite a few weeks after the release of the iFruit app on iPhone and Android we finally see it arriving on Windows Phone 8 (sorry 7.x users).
iFruit hooks directly into your experience of Grand Theft Auto V with some fun activities to further postpone the need for real social interaction. Keep up-to-date on the latest Grand Theft Auto V news, log into the Rockstar Games Social Club and stay connected on LifeInvader
Los Santos Customs
The Los Santos Customs app offers players the freedom to create their ultimate vehicle in Grand Theft Auto V from anywhere. At the bar, on the beach, on the toilet. This is the future, we’re almost sure of it.
You can even create and reserve custom license plates for both Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online – order your personalized plates before they’re gone!
Chop the Dog
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.
You can download the free app here and start customizing.
Earlier we were given the titles that would be available for the month of November for Xbox LIVE’s Games with Gold program. Starting right now you can grab Double Fine Productions’ Iron Brigade for free.
All you’ll need is an Xbox LIVE Gold subscription and you are ready to go! You can download Iron Brigade here. This game will be free to Gold subscribers from November 16th through 30th; once we find out which titles will be available for December we will let you know!
