Ratings and Reviews
Buggy but decent
To start there is a huge bug that always signs you out of your account each time you close the app or have it running in the back for a while. But I do like that you can buy games and chat with your friends on steam through the app or checking up on your library. I wish that they would implement activation of steam products instead of having to use the web or desktop application. Plus having the steam guard attached to the app is wonderful always a good thing to have extra security on your accounts to prevent unauthorized people to access your account. And having it go straight to the app instead of checking your email every time you log in makes it so much easier. But I did give it three stars due to the issues that is has like the signing you out, long load times, and random crashing. I would have given it 5 stars if they fix these issues but it seems like after a while they still haven’t fixed it even though they have acknowledged that they have known about the specific signing out issue. I love the app and it use to work flawlessly not earlier this year. I just hope that they can return the app to its former glory.
15 day trade ban/hold is the most silliest thing ever
I recently changed into my new iPhone and I have also changed my old phone number to a new phone number ever since I moved to another state to live there. Since I can’t confirm any trades on my new iPhone, they instructed me to disable the authenticator on my old iPhone and enable it on my new iPhone, which I did. HOWEVER, 1 big issue I have is that they never “warn you” what happens when you disable or enable a steam guard authenticator. They place a whopping fat 15 DAYS of not being able to trade with anyone and use the community market at all. During that time I had made great offers with a person on Discord and because of this I have to apologize to him due to the 15 days of trade ban. My BIG issue here is 15 days is waaaaay too long to not be able to do anything. If Valve’s excuse is to prevent Hackers that accessed your steam account and start trading your items to theirs or something like that, shouldn’t 1-3 days be more than sufficient for the actual owner of the steam account to respond, remove those trades, change password and security instead of 15 WHOPPING DAYS? As long as they don’t change that 15 days hold/ban I am keeping this app at a 1 Star, I wish I could rate it a lot lower, and I HOPEFULLY WISH they read through the comments, criticism and reviews and improve on one of the major flaws of their trade/ authenticator system.
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.
