Android Central

Perhaps a little late to the party, Rockstar Games has finally released the iFruit companion app for GTA V into Google Play for Android devices. GTA V was launched a little over a month ago, and the iOS version went live at the same time, so while we've had to wait a while, the important thing is that it's here. And of course, it's a total play on that other fruit phone.

So, what's it all about? Signing in with a Rockstar Social Club account hooks you in to your GTA V experience, be that on PS3 or on Xbox 360. With it, you can do a bunch of tinkering to your in-game vehicles, buy yourself a bunch of custom license plates, and even take your dog for a walk. 

That's right, Chop, your in-game pooch is present in a kind of Tamagotchi style way. You can feed him, train him, take him for a walk, all in the name of improving his behavior while you're playing GTA V. 

So far, it seems to be working just fine on the Nexus 4 and Nexus 7, but there's a bunch of reports suggesting that not everyone is able to install this. If you're having some specific troubles, drop us a line in the comments and tell us what you're using.
