Ratings and Reviews
Great app for checking the Steam store..
This is a good functional app which I've been using since it's release. Once you get used to the somewhat clunky GUI, it's very good at tracking the store sale of the day as well as the big sales, and your library. I don't use it for any other deeper functions or communicating with friends or anything else, so I don't know whether all the additional features work. I did try remotely installing a game after purchase, and I know for a fact my pc was turned on and had Steam running...but the game install request simply did not queue up in the Downloads area on the PC. That's first world software problem though... the store purchases work fine and quickly, which is the important part.
My only suggestion I have is to please please please add 'swipe back' browsing gestures. It's annoying that the back button must still be used while browsing the store all this time later as iPhone processing power effectively doubles each year. We don't need pinch turn or any other fancy gestures which no one uses...we need reliable 'swipe back' though.
Only good for tracking sales and 2FA
It provides the most barebones feature of being able to provide 2 factor authentication for your account and to check sales. Every single other function of this app is unbearable and in many cases unusable. Try to search a game and you’re given a wrapper of the desktop webpage search, which is hilariously clumsy when you have to use your fingers on a mobile app. Every other company has figured this out but Valve, with their billions, haven’t hired someone to design a proper search page within the app.
I currently have 3 notifications in the Steam app, which will apparently never go away unless I uninstall it. One is for a missed message, but no matter how many times you read that message or reply to that person or refresh, that notification is there, forever. I also have 2 comments on a review I left, but for the app to load it it is to go through the login process again for some reason, which has never given me anything but “Failed to communicate with the server.” And this is how it’s been for years. This app looks and works the exact same way it did when I first downloaded it in 2014. I’ve given up expecting Valve to invest any tiny amount of time in making this app remotely usable for anything but tracking sales and for login authentication.
Needs a lot of fixing
Don’t get me wrong by the review, I love playing on steam. But the fact that trading cannot be done without having this app is infuriating. For those that don’t know, trading, unless you have this app, takes about 2 weeks for items to arrive for both parties. That’s pretty outrageous. But the app itself is incredibly Non-user friendly. Buttons taking multiple clicks just to work, strange layout, that sort of thing. But trading can be one of the worst things to deal with. It would be so much better if it didn’t force you to log into the app to confirm a trade for 1 item. Plus there’s signing people out for no apparent reason, which forces them to reset the steam security, which then forces you back into trading holding, for a much shorter time, but you still have to wait. They decide that just signing in at points restarts the steam security. It’s just a pain to use. Please valve, fix this app. First thing should be to make the app more user friendly. Then focus on more specialized areas, like fixing trading, something like that. Either that or revamp the trading system to make it less of a hassle to deal with. Just a few suggestions but as the title implies, it needs plenty of fixes
