It is clear there’s a lot of Android tablet and smartphone owners playing GTA V dying to download the iFruit app along with chop the dog. The desperation has increased to the point that an online petition was started over the past couple of weeks that now has over 3,251 signatures with a goal set to reach 5,000.
Rockstar published details about the free GTA V iFruit and game manual companion apps a few weeks back, and also submitted a comment on the page of that announcement. Rockstar explained that the team were working hard to launch the GTA V Android version of iFruit, but this has failed to happen 3 weeks and 5 days after that comment.
Some gamers find it hard to understand why it takes so long to get an app launched on Google Android devices even after it landed on Apple’s iPhone and iOS devices? The problem is it doesn’t stop there, and this is thanks to hundreds of Windows Phone owners wondering where the app is for their tablet or phone.
Rockstar integrated the companion apps into the GTA V game; so a few gamers feel this is a part of their retail purchase and want to use iFruit for Android. Do you think you have been cheated a little, or are you not bothered about the app being on iOS but not Android?
GTA V iFruit app rallies Android desperation — we have also heard from one person that got banned from Social Club, and this came after causing a fuss over the lack of these apps on other mobile platforms.
It seems some loyal customers are very upset over the lack of an app on their device to such a point, after complaining so much it gets them banned.
We have seen a number of people feel this is more to do with Rockstar and Apple than anything else, as seen in this comment “I’m trading my game in as Rockstar is on Apple’s payroll”. There has been a lot of comments along these lines and while we understand the frustration, we have seen similar things with Microsoft buying up game content first even though this might not be the case for getting GTA’s iFruit on Android.
Leave a comment with your thoughts about the lack of this app on your device and if you really think there is more than meets the eye here, or if this is just a developer with limited time aiming for Apple once again.
