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.
Abysmal, awful, terrible app
For a company like Valve with bottomless vaults of money, it’s amazing that they could make such a bad mobile app and just never touch it again. I’m pretty sure they’ve forgotten it even exists. It’s last update was 3 years ago and addressed none of the fundamental issues plaguing it. Message notifications are almost impossible to get rid of even after reading missed messages. The search screen is the DESKTOP search page, meaning the search bar and search results are insanely tiny and near impossible to tap the right thing. Pages frequently fail to load. Your wishlist is buried within the game library screen and not directly accessible from any part of the menu. Items you put up for sale require confirmation via the app, but many items often fail to appear in the mobile app’s list, and that ones that do often fail to confirm and throw an error when you try to.
The app is bad. Real bad. And considering it hasn’t been updated in almost 4 years it’s safe to say it’s probably abandonware. This app only functions well as 2 Factor Authentication for Steam Guard, and in that it does it well. You’re better off using the mobile website for anything else.
Functional but Disappointingly Absent Continued Support
This app allows you to do the majority of the things that you'd want to do when interacting with friends or the store (and a few other things). But the clunky UI has only felt worse and worse over time due to a complete lack of updates over the last few years. Yes, it's not *that* different from the mobile version of the store, but it's even fallen behind that in some ways (why does reviewing my wishlist require so many steps?! The mobile site has a button for it in the main menu!). Reviewing one's library (I say reviewing because there's no ability to manage/categorize your games at all <- major gripe) is a huge pain, and has more than once driven me to not even bother using the app, favoring instead to just wait to check something until I'm back at my desktop.
I want to expect better (in so far as the user experience is concerned) from Valve, but perhaps that's no longer reasonable, given how things have been trending over the last several years.
