After the long and frustrating wait for the GTA V iFruit Android app, you would think it would be a flawless release to make users happy after seeing iOS users enjoy the app for weeks. However, it doesn’t appear to be as straight-forward as that sadly.
Rockstar recently updated the Android version of the app and we can tell you that users are having big problems. Mainly and almost inexplicably, it appears that the app doesn’t work on certain Android devices, even ones that are not old by any means but are still giving users problems when they try to load it.
Based on complaints that we have heard about, iFruit for Android is not running well on the Galaxy S3. We’ve also heard that the Galaxy Note 2 doesn’t play well with the app, nor does it on the T-Mobile HTC One S.
Issues involve black screens on start up, random crashes when trying to navigate the interface and error messages which shoot back messages such as “failed to check app version” and general communication error messages when actually trying to sign-in to the app.
As you can imagine, a lot of Android users are very upset about this after the long delay compared to iOS users. We also see that many of the good plates are now also gone, with many users now feeling like they should give up and not use the app at all again.
You can get an exact idea of how users are feeling, by visiting the app review page at the Google Play score. At the time of writing, we see an overall rating of just 2.8 – surely that has got to get Rockstar’s attention?
