Learn about GTA 5 when you are out and about.

There is a GTA 5 manual that you can read on your desktop computer, or you can download it as an app and read it through your mobile device. It has over 100 pages of information on GTA 5, from things such as game controls to shooting and driving techniques. You can go on tours of the neighbourhoods to find things that you didn’t know were there, and there is an interactive map you can use to research a little deeper into the game and maybe plan where you intend to go when you start playing the game again.

Who Will Benefit The Most From This?

The people that want to play the game but cannot right now are the ones that will benefit the most. Life often gets in the way of gaming. We have to go to school, college, work, or for appointments and such, and it means we cannot play GTA 5. The people that are yearning to play the game can do the next best thing and read the manual.

You get tips and help from the manual so that when you get home you can play it and try out the new stuff. If you were at home, you would read the manual to find out all this stuff, but it takes you away from playing the game.

A Manual Book That Is An App

Why make a manual into an app? Why not have it an as e-book or kindle book, or just as a piece of text? Why not have the information on a website if it is free? The answers to all are that it makes reading this 100+-page book more accessible for everybody.

The information is not on a website so that people without an Internet connection can read it. You only need the internet once - when you download it - so you can read the book offline whenever you like.

It is an app and not a book because it removes compatibility issues. You do not have to worry about being able to open the file, plus there is little chance you are going to download the file and it be hiding a virus or malware. At least this way you can be sure that the app is just an app and that you are not opening what you believe to be a PDF but what is actually a virus. It is not just a piece of text because there are screenshots and lots of pictures to look at.


  • It is good for casual reading
  • Long-time players are sure to learn something from the book
  • It is a manual as an app, which avoids computability issues


  • The text is a little too small so you need to zoom in
  • It is a little too generalised
  • It is an app, do not mistake it for a game
