Grand Theft Auto V iFruit app and game manual coming to Windows Phone

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.

Ever notice how Niko's cousin's voice on the phone sounds like the guy from iPhone 5s Gold commercial that Conan O'Brien did? Bowling is Best, Best, Best!

Rockstar didn't skimp anywhere with this game...good to see everyone can use the stupid ifruit app. Yes I own the game and will likely buckle and use it too...damn it's a good game.

Well its nice to see Windows Phone getting equal attention. I hope this is a positive trend that continues.

I think this might be the first time a major game publisher/developer is announcing a WP app along with everyone else. Now they just need to execute.

Why not call this site Neople or Neoapp? Either way, the article states what you want, but with a neoWIN based title. I see no problem in using a title to grab hits, and then leaving the article to do the actual talking.

Why does your name have the number 17 in it and your avatar has the number 26? Why not make them match at some point or take the average of both numbers?

Because Neowin has turned into NeoWP. Seriously the amount of over hype for WP on this site is unreal. If I'd believe things around here I would think WP has the majority of the market share....yet somehow I don't know ANYONE with a WP
