After perhaps the briefest closed beta in the history of closed betas, the brand new Steam application for mobile devices is now available to anyone with a smartphone.
First announced last week, the new mobile app won’t quite let you play Team Fortress 2 on the bus, it will allow you to chat with your Steam friends, browse profiles, catch up on gaming news, peek at screenshots, and – most terrifying of all – stay up to date with the unstoppable Steam sales. And yes, you can buy games, direct from your mobile.
Want to get in on the action? Download the Steam app – it’s free! – and then simply log in to your account (note: You will have to work through the authorisation process of allowing access from “a new computer”, so you may need to have your email handy).
Take a look, check it out – and keep a tight grip on your wallet. Those sort of sales aren’t meant to be at your fingertips.
