    Runs flawlessly on the iPad Air. My first time ever playing GTA: San Andreas. I have played GTA 3 and Vice city but only on an idevice so controls aren't a problem for me. So far, I like San Andreas the best and the world is huge! Just by looking at the map, it appears to be 3 times bigger than GTA Vice city.

    I've tried several setting files and found one which provides disabled car reflections and I guess a lowered draw distance. It's better but still not smooth on my Mini Retina sigh
    Is someone with an iPad 2 or iPad Mini 1 willing to share their gta_sa.set file with me? It's located in the documents folder inside the game folder.
    Guess I will drop retina graphics to get it smooth. I just don't want to wait any longer for War Drum Studios to get it fixed. Bought it almost 5 months ago and couldn't play it since then. :(

    Ye, they rly should be fired for this :(
    People on gtamodding forums even figured out that WDS has used a community tool to extract and convert all of the audio files :/
    I thinks that's far from professional.

    A single modder on android ported the jedi academy games which were released on xbox(original) with great success, It runs perfectly on my android phone no lags whatsoever and these so called studios with 20-30 employees together can't optimise games for the most powerful phone in the world.

    Beloko Games? Easily one of the best things to ever happen to mobile gaming.

    Ok guys, I installed the RetinaPad tweak from Cydia and forced it to run in iPhone mode on my MiniR and also stretching it to full screen.
    It is a LOT smoother now. Okay the resolution isn't retina anymore but f*ck it. I can play GTA SA!
    I guess it runs like on the 5S now on my iPad.

    I posted this a while back but now I am noticing a problem. After failing the mission, Sweet's girl I tried restarting from the checkpoint and then the game crashed. I reloaded my save and tried going to the red circle and it crashed again. I had a fix before for this problem (Did another mission and came back) but I don't have any other missions left and I must complete that mission(Sweet's girl) to continue. I am playing on the iPad Air btw and just wanted to ask if anyone knows a solution for this or is anyone else experiencing this issue. I hope an update to fix this is going to be made.

    For issues like this I recommend you to write your complaints to @WarDrumStudios on twitter. They are the developers of all the GTA games on ios. We can only hope that when they receive enough messages about these problems and poor performance issues they will work on a patch.

    Is there a way of looking at the pictures taken with CJ's camera (the one you pick up in the bedroom)? That would be great... I've been searching for days, but couldn't find anything.

    Happy anniversary everyone! Exactly two months ago today was the last time this game was patched. All joking aside, this is the last time I will EVER buy a game from WDS; and all I wanted was to be able to listen to some eazy-e, is that too much to ask?

    Apple released a new game developer driver today called "metal", specifically designed for the A7 devices like the ipad air and they claim it can render games up to 10 faster than the openGL.

    Hopefully warstudios will be able to implement it in their GTA ports and we might finally see some improved performance on our a7 devices.

    While Metal will be rly great for mobile iOS gamers, developers can't just "implement" it in their already released Games which were written for/in OpenGL. They actually have to port it which isn't as easy as most people might thinking, as far as I've understand it. So I highly doubt that WDS will port it for Metal. Buuuut, maybe we will see GTA IV ported for Metal :p

    I'd think more GTA : Online port. It has the right business model to work on iOS (free with paywalls and IAPs)
