We're All Screwed: Steam Has a Mobile App Now

Forums - PC Discussion - We're All Screwed: Steam Has a Mobile App Now

 

UPDATE: I just realized I completely forgot to mention that the only people who can access this right now are part of a closed beta. From the press release:

Those who wish to join the beta just need to download the Steam app (free of charge) and log in to their Steam account via the mobile app to express interest in the beta. Gamers will be added to the Closed Beta as the service ramps up.

So, hey, do that.

There was a time when PC gamers were regrettably unable to just buy a new game on Valve Corporation's Steam service unless they were actually in front of an actual computer. That time is now over.

Valve today announced the Steam mobile app for iOS and Androidplatforms, a free-to-download program designed to let the Steam power user check their friends list, chat with said friends, and yes, buy new games pretty much any time it tickles their fancy.

This means that never again shall you be forced to miss out on one of Steam's many, many, many sales because you happened to be walking around out in the larger world, and not handcuffed to your computer for the duration. In effect, downloading this app ensures that you will never, ever be able to escape the opportunity to buy games on Steam.

You didn't really like having money anyway, right?

I hope this means they will start delving into mobile games. And let me guess they are going to give Windows 7 phone user the finger and not make an app for us.

So this means people can now start downloads on their home PC or laptop vita this mobile app as long as the computer is on?

Steam chat on the go will be the death knell of my productivity.
