In just a few hours, people in the U.S. will be able to (legally) get their copy of what may be the biggest game release of 2013, Grand Theft Auto V. As it turns out, developer and publisher Rockstar Games is also releasing a companion app for the open world action game, and it's coming to Windows Phone at some point.
In a post on the official Rockstar website, the team talks about the app, called iFruit, which is already available for download for iOS devices. Rockstar will also release iFruit for Windows Phone, Android, PlayStation Mobile and PS Vita but no release dates were revealed. The app has two parts to it. One is Los Santos Customs, which lets GTA V players customize their in-game vehicles from inside the app, including a personalized license plate. The other part of iFruit is called Chop the Dog. Chop is the canine companion to one of the three main characters in GTA V, Franklin, and the app allows players to train Chop and take care of him. There will be benefits for taking very good care of Chop when you play as Franklin in the game.
In addition, Rockstar plans to release a digital version of the game's 100+ page manual, which includes a full map of Los Santos and Blaine County, for Windows Phone, iOS, and Android, along with Windows and Mac via a desktop app.
