Over the weekend Rockstar Games announced that they were to release a companion app for their upcoming title, GTA V, and we can now tell you this app is now available for iOS a day ahead of the games official release. However, if you are an Android users then you have been left out in the cold yet again, but we are told the Grand Theft Auto: iFruit Android version will be released soon.
We are not sure why the new GTA 5 companion app for Android has been delayed, but we can tell you that Android users will not be happy with this, especially when the whole Plants vs. Zombies 2 saga is still raw. Let us hope Rockstar Games do not keep people waiting long because missing out the biggest platform is not a good thing to do.
Like we said, you can now download the new GTA V: iFruit companion app today, which has a 444MB file size. So if you have a monthly data limit on your iOS device then you had best wait until you are connected to Wi-Fi.
Being able to control certain functions of GTA V with an iPhone was always going to happen because we have seen this with games in the past. What we love about these apps is how they can help you get more from a PS3 or Xbox 360 game because it allows for greater interaction.
We will give the new GTA V app a full review at a later date once we have spent time with it, but for now we would like to hear from our Android readers and comment about being left out once again.
