Gerald takes a look at the new, free Steam Mobile app from Valve, which gives gamers on-the-go access to the popular PC gaming platform.
Running through the features of the Android version (though available on iOS devices like the iPhone and iPod Touch too), Gerald gives an overview of messaging on the app, navigating the store catalogue, checking out purchases and editing profiles and preferences.
“The Steam app comes from many direct requests from our customers,” said Gabe Newell, co-founder and president of Valve.
“Seeing which of your friends are online and playing a game, sending quick messages, looking at screenshots for an upcoming game, or catching a sale – these are all features customers have requested. Mobile is changing the way people interact, play games and consume media, and the Steam app is part of our commitment to meet customer demands and expand the service functionality of Steam to make it richer and more accessible for everyone.”
To be in with a chance of trying the service early, download the app now, sign in with your Steam account, and wait for Valve to send you a beta invite.
