So coming back to the topic at hand, GTA San Andreas (Grand Theft Auto San Andreas) is only available on the Apple App Store as of now. The game is expected to be available on other platforms as soon as next week. These platforms include Android, Windows Phone and Kindle; the company said that the game versions for these different platforms are currently under development (we believe it’s almost finished development, that’s what Rockstar wants to say).

GTA San Andreas has been one of the most popular games ever released by Rockstar Games. The game made its debut on the Sony PlayStation 2 back in the year 2004, after which a number of players all around the world were tunin some rides, shootin bad guys and havin fun on Grove Street.

But for the year 2013, Rockstar has made a lot of changes and improvements to the game! The game has undergone changes on the graphics part and also on the user controls part. So even though you will be playing with on-screen buttons this time, you should have a great experience playing the game that kept you busy for days on end. And yes, like almost every new iOS app, GTA San Andreas is a universal app, hence you just have to buy it once and download it once. After that you can install the same file on all of your supported iOS devices.

GTA San Andreas for Mobiles – What’s changed?

  • New touch screen controls
  • 3 different schemes for driving
  • Revised and improved checkpoint system
  • Display on-screen buttons only when needed
  • Various other customizable options
  • Improved Graphics with more detailed shadowing
  • Improved characters and car models
  • Larger draw distance
  • Enriched color palette

“Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for mobile also comes equipped with full controller support, including Made for iOS controller capability on iOS7,” said Rockstar. So if touch screen controls make you feel uncomfortable, then you can simply get a game controller and use that instead.

Technically speaking, the game is going to be great! But there are some points that consumers need to understand. Most importantly, the game will only run on iOS devices that run on iOS 7.0 or higher. There is no support for any of the older versions so be sure to update your device before getting the app. Next, the app does not support a small number of older iOS devices and we have added those details at the bottom of the post, so be sure to take a look at that list before making a purchase.
