Grand Theft Auto Radio app comes to Android

If you spent your fair share playing all of the Grand Theft Auto titles in your spare time, you undoubtedly know all about the different radio stations that played while you were driving around town in your Banshee. All that radio goodness is now available in the Google Play store in the form of an Android app.

Android users can now duplicate their Grand Theft Auto experience in their own cars using the GTA Radio app. Of course, we mean listening to the different radio stations, not causing mayhem while driving down your local main street. The best part is, the app can work in the background while you use other apps so that you're always listening to GTA Radio while you browse Facebook and Twitter.

GTA Radio consists of most of the stations in all of the Grand Theft Auto titles as early as Grand Theft Auto III. This includes GTA III, GTA Vice City, GTA Liberty City Stories, GTA Vice City Stories, GTA San Andreas, and GTA IV. A few stations are missing from GTA IV, but the team is working on adding all the stations eventually in future updates.

The only caveat is that the app is only available on Android, and there's no word on whether or not it will come to iOS anytime soon. Our guess is that it's a licensing issue that Rockstar is dealing with, but we're not sure if they'll be able to get past it or not. All we can do is cross our fingers and hope for an iOS version at some point. In the meantime, you can download the Android version for free and start enjoying some classic GTA radio.
