GTA V Manual Review

Review Standarts
Our main goal is to provide full and useful app reviews. Our authors strictly follow the rules: minimum 15 hours of the real app usage experience or gameplay, test on main Android and iOS versions, test on phones and tablets.

When you happen to create a big world full of characters and locations, adventures, dangers, and even memes, you need to provide a Virgil to guide your Dante through this hell of a game. Grand Theft Auto V video game has a lot to explain. So reading this will save your time as you explore its big and hot world.

Functionality 10/10
Read More

Well, keep in mind that it's no game at all, it's just a manual! It even contains no link to download GTA 5 from the official sources, let alone piracy. The developers suppose you already have this game on your specialized device.

But the app is straight down to the core. Even if you used to spell the name like “game theft auto 5” or “granth auto 5” (not the wildest spellings!), you’ll be an expert after studying through this.

The app will unveil the secrets of the game – from gamepad controls and head-up display specifics up to characters’ background. There are also city and county maps with POIs, economy and hustling explanations and so on.

Page by page you also discover the advantages of playing online, game cast and credits and all you need to know about the GTA V world.

Design 10/10

It’s hard to rate an app’s design where there seems no design at all. But as you launch the app and start scrolling its pages, you see that it’s an art to make it fit so well. Each page has its illustrations, so as you play, the landscapes, characters and situations will look familiar to you.

Usability 10/10

As you launch the app, it offers you two menus to select your platform and your language. The developers have made a lot of translating work to make the contents available in 12 languages, including most popular European ones, Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Russian. There are even two Spanish versions (for Spain and for Mexico).

Cross-platform use 8/10

It rather makes sense to speak of cross-platform use when you mean GTA V platforms. The manual covers its versions for PC, Sony PS 3/4 and Xbox 360 or One. You have to select the platform you use from the start screen drop down menus. The app itself is just a MANUAL on GTA 5 for Android or iOS.

In-app purchases

As the app makes no sense unless you purchase the game, it’s completely free. Even legal documents are put in a separate section (though yes, they are here), so you don’t have to tick a single box.


It’s like reading a fiction book or watching “making of” on your favorite movie. If you’re new to GTA 5, this manual will open the curtain. Otherwise you have a chance to dive deeper into it.



Even if you know the app like your own apartment, you can read this app like a fiction book; for beginners it’s a total must.

Pros : Rich info;
Simple and clean interface.

Cons : It’s not the game, surprise!
