Train your dog and customise cars in GTA 5 companion app

Learn new tricks and trick things out.

As everyone knows, this year's hot in-game accessory is a dog, with Call of Duty's canine companion winning the most plaudits so far. Rockstar wasn't going to be left behind in the poochification of AAA gaming, however, so GTA 5 also has a dog in it: Franklin's friend Lamar's rottweiler, Chop.

Best of all, though, Chop has his own smartphone app.

Called iFruit, the free app wasn't available for me to try out while I was reviewing GTA 5, but it has now popped up on iTunes (weighing in at 444MB) and, according to Rockstar, will let players train Chop and also modify and order new cars while away from the game.

"Caring for Chop using the iFruit app will unlock additional abilities," the explanation goes. These extra Chop features are as follows:

  • Chop will search for hidden packages
  • Chop will perform the sit, beg, and give paw tricks
  • Chop will be 'extra' effective when attacking on missions
  • Player can customise Chop's collar

Who, as they say, is a good boy then. Yes it is yes you are.

Elsewhere, the Los Santos Customs part of the iFruit app lets you "create and reserve unique licence plates for use in GTA 5 and GTA Online, as well as the ability to customise owned cars, and place an order on-the-go and find it waiting in the garage the next time you play Grand Theft Auto 5 - or send an order in while playing and get a text from your local mechanic to swing by."

Yet more ways to enjoy GTA 5, then, even when you're not playing GTA 5.
