Rockstar working on GTAV Social Club, companion app issues

Developer says it is aware of data loading issues for Social Club and login errors for iFruit app; working to resolve problems "as quickly as possible."

Following the long-awaited launch of Grand Theft Auto V this week, the game's Social Club and iFruit iOS app have encountered various issues. In an update on the Rockstar Games Support Page, the developer said it is aware of these problems and is working to resolve them.

The issues with GTAV's Social Club are related to networking hardware/services. Rockstar said users can log into the Support Site and click Subscribe to receive an automatic email notification when the issues are resolved.

Problems with the iFruit app for GTAV include login errors, endless loading spinners, and the app appearing to reset data. "Rest assured that we are working to resolve this as quickly as possible," Rockstar said.

GTAV launched yesterday for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The game is expected to outpace sales of 2008's Grand Theft Auto IV and generate $1 billion during its first month, according to one analyst.

Rockstar needs to trash the ifruit app. It's a $5 gimmick that is seriously distracting to a 1 billion dollar game. It doesn't work plain and simple. It has actually cost me over $100,000 in lost custom upgrades. For those of you who believe that you are missing out you should be thankful your IOS does not carry the ifruit app and you should beg them to boycott it. No shite...

Of course its having hardware problems... it was made for the iPhone! Hasn't anybody told them that Android has a much larger customer base than Crapple?

I imagine this is one of the few reasons they delayed the online part by 2 weeks. Another is to stop people from trading in their games so fast, but this is certainly among the tops. They didnt want a SimCity happening to them.

I can't take any pictures for the paparazzi stranger mission! Kind of annoying. Why they had to intimately link the game with it is beyond me. 

Why not allow us to store images offline so we could actually do the missions and then upload the images and things to the app if we see fit? Also adding cool additions to the app like giving your dog tricks is stupid. That is really cool and a very GTA thing to do yet they leave it out of the actual game and put it on the iFruit app which I wouldn't even download if it wasn't for the dog training and photos in the first place!

I checked the social club and it doesn't record any of my game stats, it says 0% for everything. Anyone else have this issue?

Rockstar really dropped the ball on the app. Why release a game and constantly annoy me with "download the app" messages when you didn't even release an app for the most common platform (Android holds 75% marketshare). Rockstar lost a ton of credit on this one. I always said they don't release a game until it is done. Well, they blew that one. How much did Apple pay you?

Whaaaaat? The "most perfect masterpiece game revolutionary of the dimentional shift" by IGN and other game sites has a flaw? Noooo waay.

I don't see why it's necessary to be connected to a server just to take a picture.

At least they let their fans know about the issues unlike volition that stay quiet with their buggy game, comics pack and anal weapon skins not showing up.

No worries, at the least the game itself seems very polished and stable.

@Kinguard73 I think you can post stuff from the Xbox version. I don't use Facebook myself, but the game told me all about FB integration.

It's a play on words and meant to be Apple, hence the fruit reference and how all things Apple tend to begin with 'I'.

@beuneus12 I did want to train my dog and you have to log into the Social thing to take photo's for certain missions. Which we now cannot complete because of the shitty app.
