GTA 5 'iFruit' app released for Android

Free companion app is officially out and free of malware

Rockstar has released the official - and thankfully malware-free - Grand Theft Auto V 'iFruit' companion app for Android devices.

The app, which is modelled after the in-game phone - itself a parody of Apple's iPhone - allows users to customise their cars, create license plates for GTA 5's story campaign and GTA Online, as well as teach Chop the dog new tricks. Until today, the app was only available on the iOS App Store.


This comes after Android owners were warned that imitation versions of the the app containing malware had made their way onto the Google Play store.

At least two apps surfaced on the Google Play Store that used the same icon as iFruit in an attempt to mimic the real thing. Comments from angered users suggest these apps are fake, inoperable, and in some cases are suspected malware.

The official app can be downloaded on the Google Play Store here.

The first DLC for Grand Theft Auto Online, the 'Beach Bum Pack', will be downloadable for free in November, Rockstar confirmed last week.

The DLC will bring "all-new beach themed vehicles and new weaponry that you'll be able to use in both GTA Online and Story Mode".

Rockstar will also release "the first part" of the GTA Online Content Creator this autumn.
