GTA V has already become the best title in the Grand Theft Auto series thanks to its excellent graphics, a better developed story which lets us get under the skin of three different characters (Franklin, Michael and Trevor), more exciting missions and a bigger focus on free will (huge maps, loads of challenges, greater interaction with NPCs, and the list goes on).
But without doubt, the biggest difference is in the online mode. The game doesn't end when the mission is complete, nor when all of the challenges are done. The game goes on forever and ever, thanks the amazing community of users and developers who add new additions to GTA V's online mode continuously.
Console gamers have already had a few months to enjoy this gem, and from this week, those who opt to play on a PC will be able to enjoy it too. If you want to squeeze the most out of your virtual stay in Los Santos, don't miss the following list of additional apps for GTA V.
iFruit is the official additional app, developed by Rockstar Games and offers an multi-screen experience for GTA V players. iFruit can do basically three things.
Firstly, you can take care of Chop, Franklin's dog, like a type of tamagotchi. Feed it, train it and have fun with it. It won't help you much in the game but you'll have a good time nonetheless. Secondly, iFruit allows you to access the Rockstar social channel where you can get updated with everything related to GTA V. Finally, and most importantly, you can manage all the cars you've bought in the game, improve and adapt them so they are kept just perfect for the missions.
Obviously, we have to include this smasher. This is the mobile version of the official GTA V manual, also developed by Rockstar Games.
If you're not one to read, you'd better head over to Youtube to watch a video tutorial. But if you want to know every single detail about what you can find in Los Santos; its history, locations, weapons, characters, missions, then the official manual is the best choice. To sum up, this is what you need if you wanna pass as an official GTA V geek.
As we've already mentioned, the Los Santos map is huge. Even with the on-screen help and with whatever you are able to memorize, you'll often find yourself trying to remember where certain attractions are. Maps & Cheats For GTA V by Niooz is the solution. It does exactly as the name suggests. And with a quick glimpse, you'll be off again in the right direction.
Also, if you like the cheats to unlock weapons, cars and other upgrades, you can find them here too. We'd say it's better to use them once you've experimented with the game first, that way you'll be saving yourself for a bit of excitement later. But it's up to you.
GTA V has a great story behind it, full of detail and great twists and turns. However, the base of the game has always been the vehicles. Whether its by bike, sports car or private jet, in GTA the characters have always had to get into the drivers seat to complete missions. That's what all the titles in the series have in common.
That's why Cars GTA V is a really useful app: you can use it to find all models in the GTA V database, check the tech specs (speed, acceleration, braking), their names and the price on the market. Whether you want to earn some cash by selling cars, or if you want to find the perfect vehicle for a specific mission, Cars GTA V by Strategy can help you out.
