Rockstar Games today released the free Grand Theft Auto V iFruit app for Android devices. It is available today to download from the Google Play store. The GTAV iFruit app is also in development for Windows Phone, PlayStation Mobile, and PlayStation Vita.

The app--originally launched for iOS in September--features GTAV news, connectivity with the Rockstar Games Social Club and LifeInvader, and also lets users launch other Rockstar Games apps.

In addition, the iFruit app taps into Los Santos Customs, allowing users to customize their in-game vehicle by tinkering with paint jobs, window tints, and suspension, among other features. Users can also create and reserve custom license plates for GTAV and Grand Theft Auto Online using the app.

The iFruit app also allows users to train GTAV protagonist Franklin's Rottweiler dog, Chop, through a feature called "Chop the Dog." Users can pet him, feed him, play fetch, and teach him tricks using the app.

Spending time with Chop using the app will be reflected in GTAV. Chop will be more helpful and responsive to Franklin and will perform tricks if properly trained using the app. Chop will also sniff out desirable items on walks if players train him using the app.

In addition, the GTAV game manual companion app is also now available for Android devices via Google Play. It was previously released for iOS, PC, and Mac, and is "coming soon" for Windows Phone.

GTAV was released last month and minted $1 billion in three days. Rockstar Games recently announced the first batch of downloadable content for Grand Theft Auto Online, called the Beach Bum Pack.
