I think the iFruit app should replace the in game phone completely. Apart from the camera.

if we could use the app as an in game phone instead of actually bringing up the phone in game, that would be awesome.

 

instead of pushing up, just pick up the smart phone or tablet and do a thing. much more efficient.

 

or the interactive minimap!

 

or or... an airstrike thing! :D

I believe a video conference with hookers is called a cam session and it costs money.

If your on windows 8 you can download it from the windows App Store.

If any other OS I'm not sure.

Put all that stuff in, I gotta put this jailbroken app to use anyway.

All I can do is unlimited custom plates and override level locks on mods. I have to pay for it still. Freaking boring dude.

They could actually put mobile versions of Snapmatic and Social Club on there rather than just redirecting you to the desktop site inside a sh*tty frame that freezes all the time.

And the ability to delete photos from Snapmatic on there.

I think it will be upgraded fully and soon because right now it's not as helpful as before online went live. It can't even keep up with new dlc vehicles!

This thread is missing something....

 

Oh yes, an app for people who run tank shifts. An app that will help you better organize and run your tank shifts, money spinner. Running successful tank shifts through the tank shift app will also give you progress toward unlocking tank upgrades like custom colour, rapid fire, NOS and dollar rims.

 

part of the features listed would help with running tank shifts but they are more generally a way to stay organized. see:

 

http://gtaforums.com...un-tank-shifts/

 

for more information. a new iFruit app 2.0 would have the ability to organize and message crewmates while offline and also run a tank from offline.

I like the part about the progress towards tank upgrades being tracked on iFruit 2.0 though

 

how to make the ifruit app less worthless...

 

well they could start by making the thing functional... it crashes 9/10 times everytime i touch one of the icons.

 

realism.

 

Set bounties on people in my real life contacts.  Classic!

 

yeah, it also could send anonymous texts through the Rockstar mobile gateway that sends something like this:

7GW3z7m.jpg

 

Great idea scubadave, nuke app, snapmatic, music streaming etc.

 

yes!!! i voted for those too

 

Good stuff there. I don't see the IRL photo thing working though. Some nasty things could be uploaded. That's the reason why they patched the custom emblems.
With Smartglass app you can send messages already on and offline.
A texting feature would be awesome especially now when you send a message it fills up half your screen and your character is just waiting to get murdered.
The fruit app is pretty much useless. It's keeps crashing on my phone when I try to view snapmatics..

 

smartglass app works well but to have it all in the iFruit would be even better. yes, the texting is poorly designed it fills the whole screen and even if u are white flagged on the map, ur still just asking for it. same with the nav-it takes up the whole screen and u don't know whats happening in the game. if I could scan the map set waypoints,view the route, zoom out on the map on the iFruit, no more problems.

 

"hang on, my phone's ringing"
"who is it?"
"it's Lester from GTA. Probably telling me my bounty's complete!"
"u wot m8 u sad little b***h that's it you're dumped go get a GTA girlfriend"

Proof that this is a bad idea!

 

 

 

its a good idea.

ur friends in class taking finals, set him up for auto redial Lester calls with speakerphone on. every 2 minutes he gets the Lester call and the Dom call asking to hang out.

While I did not like your revised player blip, I actually do like this! Please send it to [email protected] while the chance is small that it gets read and taken into account - it's bigger than not emailing it and hoping they read it here.

Cockstar could barely code the app we have now (and only after several patches) what makes you think they could possibly do all this?

The iFruit App isn't as good as I thought it would be. It's not compatible with most Android OS phones below 4.1.0. 

root your phone then. My HTC one xl has been running 4.4 since forever lol.

I'm really liking waypoints, custom music, and easier communication between players. :^:

The ability to listen to music anytime, How did R* not implement that. I remember seeing a screenshot with Michael having earphones and I thought we would have the ability to listen to music at anytime(only used in a cut-scene).

Spoiler

 
 
SR even had that


NPCS in GTA V have working headphones & ear buds.

How about.. just getting rid of the app completely? It's ridiculous that you have to have the app to be able to get custom license plates! Make License Plate Customization in-game like Midnight Club: Los Angeles!
