Valve is testing a new Steam mobile app

The Steam mobile app isn’t bad by any stretch, but it’s not particularly good, either. It’s just sort of there: You can browse the store with it, purchase and remotely install games, chat with your Steam pals, and do most of the other major functions of the desktop Steam client. But there’s nothing about it that really makes me want to. If it wasn’t for the fact that I need it for Steam Guard, I probably wouldn’t bother having it installed at all.

I can’t honestly say how Valve might best go about making its mobile app more appealing, but I’m eager to find out what it’s got in mind. And with any luck I’ll find out fairly soon, because a new Steam mobile app (opens in new tab) has now launched in beta for both Android and iOS devices.
