Grand Theft Auto V – iFruit Guide (Car Customization, Chop the Dog)
Grand Theft Auto V is a huge game on its own, with tons to see and do in the world of Los Santos. But Rockstar even took it a step further and included a special iOS app for gamers with an iPhone, iPad, or similar device. Rockstar also confirmed that the app is also going to be released for Android devices, the PlayStation Network, and the PlayStation Vita in the future. This device allows players to engage in some special activities, whether they are at their console or not. Read on to learn more about the exclusive features!
The Los Santos Customs portion of the app allows you to customize your cars for use in-game. To start, open up the interface and go to the garage. You’ll find all your cars, so select one you want to customize. Once you’ve finished customizing, hit the blue ‘Order’ button to send it back to the game. These are all the things you can manipulate with the app:
This option lets you choose new primary and secondary colors for your vehicle. You can also change the color of the window tint and tire smoke here.
Here, you can change how powerful your engine in. More options unlock as you progress through the game.
Here, you can choose between street brakes or standard brakes. This is useful for racing or better car handling.
Choose new tires or rims for your vehicle. These are only cosmetic changes.
Change the way the horn sounds on your vehicle.
Change the headlights and taillights of your car to personalize the look.
Put the turbo option on a vehicle, and you’ll have access to a burst of speed while driving around.
Upgrade your cars armor to be able to withstand more damage before your vehicle is wrecked.
Purchase better suspension options to improve the overall handling of your vehicle.
Choose a different type of exhaust to change the weight of your vehicle. This affects the handling and speed.
At the bottom of the screen, find the section called ABC Plates. In here, choose your personal message for your license plate.
Chop the Dog
Chop is Franklin’s dog in GTA V. You can interact with him as a virtual pet in the iFruit app. Interacting with him in iFruit effects how he will act in the game. Here are all the activities you can do with Chop on your mobile device:
Tap the blue bowl in the menu and drag a food item to Chop to feed him. You’ll have to refill Chop’s water bowl as well. Feeding Chop increases his happiness. Happiness decreases over time, so feed him often.
Chop is a dog, so you’ll have to clean up after him. When he poops, a glove symbol will appear on screen. Pinch the poop with two fingers and drag it over to the garbage can.
To take Chop for a walk, tap on the leash icon. Choose a destination to walk to and you’ll get to play a little minigame.
Presents for Chop
If Chop does something you like, you can reward him with a gift. Click the gift icon and choose a new collar for him as a present. This changes the collar he has in the game as well.
Hit the brown ribbon icon to teach Chop a new trick. He’ll then perform this trick in the game.
Throw the ball to play fetch with Chop. You can also try throwing the ball off-screen, and seeing if Chop brings something cool back!
