Trackify is a tracking app designed for various mobile phones. It is used to track down people or objects.
Grand Theft Auto IV
In Grand Theft Auto IV, the app is mentioned in radio commercials. The commercials reveal that it's an app used to reveal the exact location of your family, and that it's just for kids. A man commenting on the app in the commercial claims that the app tracks down a microchip implemented in his children's brain.
Grand Theft Auto V
In Grand Theft Auto V, the App appears as a heart that at the same time represents the letter "i" in the logo. It consists of a blue screen and lines with a sonar that tracks a red dot (the objective). When the player is close to the dot, the scales are zoomed to indicate an approximation. The sonar is oriented by a vehicle, so if the red dot is in the middle, the vehicle must travel on a straight line to reach. The beeps also become more frequent.
Trackify takes a larger role, being used to track down debris, nuclear waste, and Michael De Santa in Fresh Meat. In these cases, the Trackify App appears on the down-right corner, next to the Internet App.
- The radio commercials in Grand Theft Auto IV say that it reveals the exact location of whatever it's tracking down, but in Grand Theft Auto V, where the app is used, it seems to track down weak signals which get stronger the closer you get.
- In Fresh Meat, Lester Crest tells Franklin that the app is used to track down a microchip in Michael's cellphone, which indicates that the manufacturer of Trackify no longer implement their microchips into people's heads. Similarly, in Pacific Standard - Vans, the same app is used to locate four Post OP Boxvilles, implying that the change was made before the events of GTA V.
