The iFruit companion app for Grand Theft Auto 5 is available now as a free download on Vita, allowing players to interact with the PS3 game via the Sony handheld. Those exploring Los Santos on PS3 can use the app to create and customize cars for use in the main game. They can also look after Franklin's mutt Chop in Tamagotchi-style activities, and in doing so nurture the Rottweiler so that in the game proper he's more helpful to his master.

You'd think GTA 5 news related to the Vita might be more groundbreaking six months after the PS3 and Xbox 360 game hit shelves - then again, it was April Fools yesterday.
