Is it really mobile
by Two bibs on 2020/09/23 19:33
You need a computer to play so can you call it mobile
Not what was expected
by 👍🏻x♾ on 2020/09/23 18:11
I was hopeing that I would be able to play steam games on mobile but oft the ability to just look at my things instead of being able to play them
chat doesnt even work

You can successfully change your password from this app but forget about logging in.

It does what you need it to do
by Chaseiboy8181 on 2020/09/21 11:16
I works just fine as another bit of security for your account. In fact I love it I know if anyone wants to do anything or sign into my account, it goes through my phone. Now, I’m giving it 4 starts because sometimes it I go to confirmations they page won’t load for awhile. And this is while I’m at home connected to internet. So then I close the app, re open then it normally works. That’s been my only issue and this is really good for keeping your account safe. Personally I recommend attaching an email, and a phone, and changing your pass word every 3~4 months, it’s a slight inconvenience but when its your steam account your talking about, it’s very important
Security
by Amazing 😘😍👌 on 2020/09/21 01:16
I was easily breached and they took my account over. I had asked whether or not they could give me back my items as I knew who had stolen them. But they do not care about their customers and did not even ban the hacker. I had downloaded the app as a means of security but that had obviously not worked. They refused any way of helping me, allowing the hacker to get away and take around several hundred dollars from me. I wish this doesn’t happen to anyone else, but there needs to be a change in steam policies for innocent people not just the general population.
Terrible app

No search
by cishet on 2020/09/17 18:15
No search feature for friends unlike the android version, so pretty useless unless you wanna scroll through everything
Useful.
by MinecraftTDS on 2020/09/17 17:33
I was going to put awesome for the title, but it isn’t a game. Useful as in it helps ease things. True, Authenticators and Holds take 7-15 days, but after waiting those times out, The app is So useful. All those other bad reviews are just impatient people, or people who don’t understand steam enough. This app gives So many Benefits It’s silly to play steam without this app. Also Petition for steam to be labeled as a Accessory, not a game.
It does not let me into the app
by gabriel. ? on 2020/09/16 15:45
It’s not let me in the app because it says that there’s a fake domain trying to act like steamcommunity.com. But overall steam is great but I would like to get in the app to actually use it
Barely works
by nathan deth on 2020/09/16 04:58
Whenever you click on something, you have a dice roll on whether or not it wants to copy it or open it. Also, getting steam guard is way too hard. There is only a 1 minute timeframe to get to the link they send you, but sometimes you get, “phone number invalid.”
Can’t even log in
by Necro nerd on 2020/09/15 02:59
I’m positive that I have my name and password correct, but it keeps saying it’s wrong, I’ve confirmed that I’m correct too. And it won’t even let me attempt it anymore
Its ok..
by Anime wacher on 2020/09/14 23:21
I got steam to get a specific game (because I didnt have a PS4) and i could not download it or play it at all!! Dont get this is you dont have steam on your pc a other computer.

The most disgusting UI on the App Store. A total disaster.
by rooattack on 2020/09/13 00:22
Probably one of the biggest failures in UI history. You will pull your eyes out the second you open this thing. I’ve yet to experience this level of total frustration; embarrassment, and anxiety using an app on iOS. You’d think a $100mill company could hire a few ‘real’ UI/UX designers to overhaul this thing. I mean, you don’t even have to update it. Just dump this complete barf of mess and start over. Start simple. STEAM, you should be ashamed of yourself. Ashamed of your team. Do you think us devs want to show our faces on this thing? Think again. We have an actual brand to protect and your crapping all over everybody with this design.
Fix the app
by spy27592 on 2020/09/12 21:39

Horrible customer service
by #$@y on 2020/09/10 22:29
They banned my account and basically stole my money for now reason.... they are an untrustworthy platform that will take advantage of people and lock them out their account!! They know that they have monopoly over gaming platforms and they are exploiting it to the fullest. They don’t respond to any of the requests either Spineless and incompetent cooperation!

This software worked at some point but now you can’t even get it to recognize a password change. If I didn’t have games on it I would delete it like yesterday.
Broken, busted, but still usable
by DONGSQUAD420xX on 2020/09/08 17:13
It’s like pulling teeth for this app to respond but there is no real alternative for accessing Steam. When using an iPhone 11 on plenty fast wifi I typically expect to be able to view games/info in a timely manner. Instead I must tap several times, which is usually a minor setback; the glitches absolutely stack up when you have to navigate multiple pages. Searching for, and visiting the store-page of a game via IOS Steam App takes roughly as long as booting my PC, loading steam, and seeing it there. God forbid you get an age verification screen.
I can’t creat an account
by #oofer game rool on 2020/09/08 16:59

Oh my goodness
by Hurbanik on 2020/09/07 17:31
I want to first start out by saying that using steam on a PC is amazing. BUT their app is incredibly buggy and the UI feels like it was made by a junior high coding class project. Which honestly I feel bad lumping then in there because they’re new. But steam is full of “professionally paid” people and we have to deal with this garbage. Delete this and just stick with the PC version.

Good app (needs full support for iOS on dark mode)
by Albinreidar on 2020/09/05 03:56
I noticed under setting you cannot set your birthday while you have dark mode on as the text is invisible I had this issue on another app in the past so I tried turning off dark mode and then I could see it again. It just means this area does not support dark mode and I would love it if you guys can add in support for dark mode on iOS 13.7 for iPhone SE Second Generation

Unusable when you need it most.
by Dkaned on 2020/09/02 13:06
Logs you out and then the app can't be used as an authenticator. There are no back buttons in the browser, and since the password recovery is handled through the browser, if you want to try another option, you have to force close the app and start over. I successfully recovered my password but now I have to do it again because it's trying to remove my steam guard. I didn't click that option, but I can't go back...
Buggy and clunky but still a decent steam app

Frustrating
by azo1234567 on 2020/09/01 04:13
Just spent 30min trying to first create an account, then buy fallguys (apparently published today per my 11 year old) then start playing fallguys. Take away - can’t start and play fall guys. Why? Not sure. Seems like we’re caught in a vicious circle between downloading, captcha, press and press, tap tap tap same buttons over and over and over and over and over and over...
Useless
by IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII- on 2020/08/31 01:06
There’s no point In having steam if you can’t play any pc games I know pc games can’t be played on mobile but I don’t see any reason why you would have steam on mobile super pointless and trash do not Download. 😤😠🤬

Good but soooooo slow
by rcoffee333 on 2020/08/30 13:07
I haven’t encountered any bugs at all with this app. And that’s a really good sign of it being a good app. The only problem I have with this app is that when you click on a button it takes 5-10 seconds to actually go to the page. And this isn’t my WiFi because I have very fast WiFi and it’s works fine with everything else. Also isn’t my phone because I have the 11 so steam devs you guys should look into making the app faster.

How does a company that makes so much money find success doing nothing
by SharksAteMyWife on 2020/08/28 23:47
Valve can’t even be bothered to fix the things that help them make more money. Navigating this app is such a horrid experience, and you run into all sorts of problems. Confirming trades always runs you into an error screen, even if it actually worked. Forget using the community workshop or relying on the messaging client.

by Robert Pappe on 2020/08/28 02:07
Everything is fine other than these problems: sometimes messages you send to friends show that they’ve been sent twice. I want to change what my availability is (online, invisible, do not Disturb, etc) and that you can’t send images via phone. Images sent from pc only show links. Links don’t work.
It sort of works some of the time
by George Mhmmm on 2020/08/27 22:22
The app is pretty buggy and clunky. When it works it’s OK at best but expect features to not work. Some examples: video previews of games not working, store browsing being really slow and clunky, search features not working. The list goes on. These things get fixed over time but over all paints a picture of mediocrity.

I cant even log in...
by NuclearMcGinnis on 2020/08/18 02:27
For some reason whenever i use this app on my iPad, i cant even access the login screen. The android version of this app works fine on my phone, but whenever i open the app here on my iPad, it leaves me at a almost blank screen that says “login” at the top, but that “Button” doesnt do anything when i tap on it, and theres nothing else on that screen. It SOMETIMES allows me to attempt a refresh, but whenever i do, it just keeps refreshing for a good five minutes or so before ultimately failing, and giving me an error message, and then failing to even allow me to attempt a refresh any further times. Someone, please fix this issue. I’d like to at least be able to access steam on my iPad.

Got this because of Market Listing Hold. Doesn’t work.
by Hell trim on 2020/08/17 16:20
Downloaded this and “steam chat” because steam said that I needed them to “authenticate” my account. Otherwise, my market listings that I’m trying to sell will be put on hold. So I downloaded both, already had an error upon start up (not even logged in yet). And after logging in, there’s no prompt for me to authenticate my account. I’ve already authenticate multiple times via email confirmation codes within the past 10 minutes or so, but still nothing. Still on hold for market listings... pretty dumb. I’m all in for security, etc. but it doesn’t make sense to go through this much trouble to sell a CS:GO box/case for $0.90. Edit: Now, I’m getting confirmation errors. Really dumb as I’m only trying to sell cases from CS:GO that costs literal cents.

Why does this exist?
by Reviewer11235813 on 2020/08/13 23:25
This app does nothing well. It's a thin wrapper around Steam's hopelessly broken web frontend. There are countless rendering errors, even on the largest available iPhone. If you load a large library page, the content automatically scrolls up as images load. The people who built this should be ashamed and unemployed.

More payment options
by Jkmorris18 on 2020/08/11 22:43
The app does its job in allowing you to access steam on a mobile device, but I think that you should be able to use iTunes money to add funds to your account. As a younger person with none of the available payment options, it would be nice to have a way to put my money into steam directly rather than relying on my dad to do it for me.

People that made this app it would be so much more helpful if you could maybe do like a fast tutorial beginning of the video when you’re looking at what this app is. I gave you a three star rating because it’s really freaking hard to login for me and I’m not sure WHYYYY. But everything else I’ve Heard about this app is cool once I’m able to login I’m sure it’s gonna be really fun!
I love it

Buggy but decent
by Shaggyz5150 on 2019/12/30 06:22
To start there is a huge bug that always signs you out of your account each time you close the app or have it running in the back for a while. But I do like that you can buy games and chat with your friends on steam through the app or checking up on your library. I wish that they would implement activation of steam products instead of having to use the web or desktop application. Plus having the steam guard attached to the app is wonderful always a good thing to have extra security on your accounts to prevent unauthorized people to access your account. And having it go straight to the app instead of checking your email every time you log in makes it so much easier. But I did give it three stars due to the issues that is has like the signing you out, long load times, and random crashing. I would have given it 5 stars if they fix these issues but it seems like after a while they still haven’t fixed it even though they have acknowledged that they have known about the specific signing out issue. I love the app and it use to work flawlessly not earlier this year. I just hope that they can return the app to its former glory.
15 day trade ban/hold is the most silliest thing ever
by Lord Ainz on 2020/02/05 06:49
I recently changed into my new iPhone and I have also changed my old phone number to a new phone number ever since I moved to another state to live there. Since I can’t confirm any trades on my new iPhone, they instructed me to disable the authenticator on my old iPhone and enable it on my new iPhone, which I did. HOWEVER, 1 big issue I have is that they never “warn you” what happens when you disable or enable a steam guard authenticator. They place a whopping fat 15 DAYS of not being able to trade with anyone and use the community market at all. During that time I had made great offers with a person on Discord and because of this I have to apologize to him due to the 15 days of trade ban. My BIG issue here is 15 days is waaaaay too long to not be able to do anything. If Valve’s excuse is to prevent Hackers that accessed your steam account and start trading your items to theirs or something like that, shouldn’t 1-3 days be more than sufficient for the actual owner of the steam account to respond, remove those trades, change password and security instead of 15 WHOPPING DAYS? As long as they don’t change that 15 days hold/ban I am keeping this app at a 1 Star, I wish I could rate it a lot lower, and I HOPEFULLY WISH they read through the comments, criticism and reviews and improve on one of the major flaws of their trade/ authenticator system.
Only good for tracking sales and 2FA
by Goldmaaaaan on 2019/10/08 11:15
It provides the most barebones feature of being able to provide 2 factor authentication for your account and to check sales. Every single other function of this app is unbearable and in many cases unusable. Try to search a game and you’re given a wrapper of the desktop webpage search, which is hilariously clumsy when you have to use your fingers on a mobile app. Every other company has figured this out but Valve, with their billions, haven’t hired someone to design a proper search page within the app. I currently have 3 notifications in the Steam app, which will apparently never go away unless I uninstall it. One is for a missed message, but no matter how many times you read that message or reply to that person or refresh, that notification is there, forever. I also have 2 comments on a review I left, but for the app to load it it is to go through the login process again for some reason, which has never given me anything but “Failed to communicate with the server.” And this is how it’s been for years. This app looks and works the exact same way it did when I first downloaded it in 2014. I’ve given up expecting Valve to invest any tiny amount of time in making this app remotely usable for anything but tracking sales and for login authentication.
Great app for checking the Steam store..
by Mbrogz3000 on 2017/07/02 14:24
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.
Not Great
by MadMusic26 on 2019/12/02 16:23
It is convenient to have a way of checking the Steam store from your phone and the mobile authentication is a helpful feature, but that is where the positives end. Despite being an app made for accessing the store on mobile devices, it’s easy to see that they put little to no effort into converting the store for mobile use. Navigation is difficult, often words and buttons are too small to use (you end up clicking things you never meant to click because the screen is too crowded). The app is ALWAYS crashing and lags like nobody’s business. I have used the app for a few years and have yet to see any significant changes to performance or design, so I’m not sure if Valve is even maintaining it. In fact the only reason I’m writing a review at all is because I’m hoping someone will take these low reviews into consideration and make some real changes to the app that improve performance and ease of use. The one thing I can say is when you’re using the app you can tell it’s Steam you’re on; the interface is so similar, but again that’s not exactly a good thing when you optimize something for mobile use. I really hope they focus on a more mobile friendly design in the future.
Needs a lot of fixing
by Tanner Jones 73 on 2019/10/08 20:59
Don’t get me wrong by the review, I love playing on steam. But the fact that trading cannot be done without having this app is infuriating. For those that don’t know, trading, unless you have this app, takes about 2 weeks for items to arrive for both parties. That’s pretty outrageous. But the app itself is incredibly Non-user friendly. Buttons taking multiple clicks just to work, strange layout, that sort of thing. But trading can be one of the worst things to deal with. It would be so much better if it didn’t force you to log into the app to confirm a trade for 1 item. Plus there’s signing people out for no apparent reason, which forces them to reset the steam security, which then forces you back into trading holding, for a much shorter time, but you still have to wait. They decide that just signing in at points restarts the steam security. It’s just a pain to use. Please valve, fix this app. First thing should be to make the app more user friendly. Then focus on more specialized areas, like fixing trading, something like that. Either that or revamp the trading system to make it less of a hassle to deal with. Just a few suggestions but as the title implies, it needs plenty of fixes
The app is good but...
by Maxwell Burke on 2019/12/29 20:09
The app is good, it is a little klunky. I really liked the mobile authentication. The problem I have with this app is Steam itself. One of the worst companies out there. I have had my account for 5 years and have 20+ games on it with over 2,500 hours total play time, and I can’t use mobile authentication anymore. For some reason, when I got a new phone and wanted to use mobile authentication on my new phone, it would not let me. I was locked out of my account for 5 days and unable to play any Steam games. So I messaged Steam Support about the problem and their solution? Permanently remove my phone number that has been attached to my Steam account for 5 years. I also can’t use my phone number on any other accounts. I can’t use mobile authentication to log in, my account feels less secure, but then again, in the first place I only played games with friends and never shared my password to anyone. Why feel the need to permanently remove my phone number from my account or any account. In conclusion, for a company who wants people to play their games and use their software, they sure do an awful lot to keep people from doing that.
Broken App Needs more Attention
by Tiki_chik on 2020/04/24 10:42
There are a whole bunch of problems with this app. The Steam Guard is absolutely horrendous, especially since you cant sign back in with the guard on via email confirmation and it HAS to be by your phone number. This ended up locking us out of our own account and having to contact steam to get it back. Another thing is when we don’t have troublesome Steam Guard on and when i put up a sale on MY OWN ACCOUNT. I can’t confirm my sale to the market because of not having the Guard on. DESPITE BEING LOGGED IN ON MY OWN ACCOUNT THAT IM MAKING A SALE ON!! which makes absolutely no sense. theres another problems and thats with the chats on the app. I dont get notifications from the application when someone messages me and thats bothersome when i get onto the PC of steam and someone messaged a good few hours before. Another thing which is a nitpick but for a reason. on our computer whenever we open steam the application logs us out every time we close the app or restart the computer. This..would be fine...if my games wouldn't have been uninstalled when i get logged back into Steam. I really hope this app gets fixing but i really don't have faith that it will improve anytime soon.
A Usable Trainwreck
by MagicSofa on 2020/07/01 15:21
If you’ve seen the previous reviews, you already know the Steam app is pretty mediocre. While it does execute most of the features of the Steam website on desktop, it doesn’t do so enough to justify using the app instead of the web version on your phone. Only get this app if you want an authenticator and are willing to deal with the UI and frequent glitching. I’ve tested out purchases, store pages, and community browsing. The app crashes on the new “steam points” page when you look at animated backgrounds, and sometimes randomly crashes while browsing communities. Purchases are relatively painless, even with the clunky UI. Overall, I’m giving the app 3 stars for its built-in authenticator feature, which you don’t need to navigate a bunch of menus to get to, and its passable store and community features. The profile management is also on point with no hiccups. The Steam app has a LOT of room for improvement, and I encourage Valve to give more attention to this application, as it hasn’t come close to the degree of quality I expect from them.
Functional but Disappointingly Absent Continued Support
by y4rn on 2019/02/15 14:40
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.
Good! One Slight Problem.....
by #HashTagMe on 2018/12/30 17:13
This app in general is good! I love it in every way. I could do a rant against the haters using all my knowledge. There is one thing.... it’s not much of a problem. I would like to see it fixed though because, I don’t think it would take very long to fix. Changing your profile pick is impossible. You’ll click “Edit Profile”, then you can edit it. However, when you go down to change your profile pick, it says “Choose/Pick File” and “Upload File” next to that. You could go to google/a search web, save an image, but if you go and click choose file, nothing happens. Nothing pops up or anything. It’s not a super big problem, but I wow old like to see it fixed. Anyways, this is a really good app in general! I would rate this 4 stars but since the small problem I stated was well, small, I give this app a big fat 5 stars! Hope you fix this small problem! If you can’t, I guess that’s ok. -Willow aka djbroomstick
Technical Issues
by NotTakenUsername123454321 on 2017/03/28 21:26
I downloaded the app 3 days ago to remove the automatic hold for items listed on the steam market. Download went well, app worked great, once I attempted to setup the mobile Authenticator I pressed the "back" option on the upper tab because the codes weren't loading (don't do this) and once I tried to go back it wouldn't let me because I had already authorized a device. So I de -authorize all my devices through the steam computer application, sign out of the mobile app and sign back in and sign up for steam guard. I log into the app again and it's working this time, however I realize I'm now blocked for 15 days FOR EVERYTHING ON THE STEAM MARKET! Reading on the steam help page there is no way around this 15 day hold. ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS! Please give more specific instructions about de-authorizing devices and the consequences of doing so and remove the "back" (>) tab on the mobile guard section as to not lock yourself out. 15 days because I reauthorized the same device is crazy. Please explain the codes automatically appear on your device and you don't have to de-authorize to get these codes. Please explain how and what the codes are and when you enter them.
Good, but THERE IS NO LINK TO THE WISHLIST.
by Ryanxj9000 on 2020/04/14 05:20
Works well enough, but there is NO link to the Wishlist within the app. If you compare it to the mobile website, it looks almost identical but with a huge exception. On the website there is a link to your Wishlist on the left side drop-down menu on the left side. It is conspiculously missing in the app. Makes ZERO SENSE. I can only get to my Wishlist by using a workaround: Searching for a game that I know is already on my Wishlist, going to that game’s page and clicking the Wishlist button you would click to add the game to your Wishlist. If a game is already on your Wishlist, clicking that will take you to your Wishlist. This seems silly for them to not fix this. It’s been a year since I noticed it, and Support is no help and seems clueless telling me to update my phone and app. They ARE updated. And reinstalling does NOTHING.
Terrible Customer Experience
by Teem Dodger on 2016/12/31 17:55
Basically, all I wanted to do was to sell the useless cards that have accumulated in my Steam inventory. So, I pick an item I want to sell, click about four buttons to confirm that I want to sell it, and then have to log in to my email to confirm that I want to sell some card for 5 cents. Job done, right? Well, no. Now the 5 cent card is on hold, and to "remove the need for placing a market item on hold," Steam tells me I should use the Mobile Authenticator. What's that? Well, it's the mobile app. So, I download the app, authenticate IT through my email, search online for where the "Mobile Authenticator" is in the app (the name in the app is "Steam Guard," not "Mobile Authenticator") and the items are STILL on hold. Apparently I have to keep this app on my phone for 7 days before I have the privilege of selling a useless 5 cent card. No thanks. I am done with this. Maybe just let me sell this useless junk in the Steam program on my computer? I have no need for a Steam app taking up space on my phone. I'm going to think twice before buying anything on Steam thanks to this customer service experience.
Bad Reviews are User Error
by Gamma Lead on 2017/12/31 01:55
I usually don't bother reviewing unless an app does something exceptional or horrendous. This app, while not the most polished, definitely does not deserve the rating it has. I look at the reviews, and the bad ones, half are due to self-admitted user error, half are about someone bemoaning the need for account security. I got the app and used it to make an account and look up, scrutinize, and then purchase a game before I even had Steam on my computer. I have had no issues with it from that starting point or ever since. I am downloading this again on a spare device due to some technical difficulties not related to the app, and am appalled that its rating is so low solely because people lacking the ability to navigate an app or because they want less security for their account. Complain to steam support or the forms, don't rate a workable app poorly due to your own incompetence.
App needs an overhaul
by CDiAKing on 2018/09/17 03:35
Like most PC gamers, Steam is indispensable to my life. However, the app needs a lot of work. For far too long it has been plagued by the lack of a proper ‘back’ button, which means that when you are simply browsing the store and navigating through pages, the back button just relaunches the last page you were on, rather than returning you to your place. This is aggravating when flipping through sale items or DLC content, and it’s effectively just like browsing the store through a browser window. The UI is also slow and just not polished enough in general. It seems odd for such a wealthy company to have such a poorly implemented app, which has shown little improvement over the years. Other features work well for the most part, like chatting with friends and Steam Guard. The biggest downside for me is the store experience, which is in need of a major overhaul. Hopefully some day soon we will see an improvement to the in-app store experience.
Outdated, slow, and full of bugs.
by SchneiderNicholas on 2018/02/10 08:46
Unfortunately, the app needs some serious updating. Currently, it does not fit the screen size of hardly any modern phone, on the iPhone X it is especially obnoxious having an app the size of an iPhone 5 screen. In addition, the major bugs I have found are: 1.) An odd glitch where switching between apps causes it to flash the messages and keyboard when sending or receiving. 2.) A bug where after switching back to the app it duplicates messages sent. 3.) Especially since the latest iOS and on the iPhone X, chat is offline for a good 2-7 seconds upon opening or sometimes switching back to it or turning the device out of sleep. 4.) A very frequent bug where it says the other user is typing while they are not. To fix this, you have to go back to the friends list, refresh, and then go back; sometimes that doesn’t even work. Also sometimes tells other users you are typing when you are not. 5.) Not necessarily a bug but definitely something that should be changed: when you switch apps even for one second, it sets your Steam status to away. For anyone talking to someone else on the app from the computer client, it’s obnoxious. It should definitely wait at least 3-4 minutes for people who have background refresh on. 6.) You cannot change your Steam profile picture because the app will not prompt iOS for photos. Please fix the app. It’s been over a year since the last update.
Mobile Authenticator for a Reason
by Critic of the Month on 2016/06/13 05:20
For all of the people complaining about how you need to download the mobile authenticator, heres why: hacking. If your account were to get hijacked by a hacker, would you want all of your precious CSGO skins to be stolen? No. With the email authenticator, the hackers can steal your skins and verify it, as they only need to go onto chrome or yandex to long into your email and confirm everything. Would you truly want the skins which caused you to have stage 4 of skin insanity to disappear from you? No. Stop complaining and just get the thing. Its even faster than email because you only have to click two buttons, but on email you have to wait, and wait longer, and still wait, and then finally the email pops up. And then it glitches. Just get it.
Created for a specific audience.
by My name is lost on 2019/12/11 18:47
This app isn’t for people who want to do everything steam related on their phone. This app is obviously for people who want to manage steam in a way outside of their pc. This is a secondary way to access steam and is not meant to be used as a primary way to navigate steam. Don’t expect this app to do everything and more of what steam does on your desktop, because that isn’t what a was made for. That being said it does a great job at doing what it’s supposed to do. I great way to ACCESS you account and VIEW what your account tells you. If you want to buy a game for your computer go to the actual steam application. If you don’t have a steam account what are you doin here. Go make one on your computer where you are going to play the actual games.
Disappointed
by Taylor9990909 on 2018/06/29 18:22
For being such an enormous digital distribution platform on desktops, the steam mobile app is sorely lacking. It’s confusing, cluttered, lacks basic abilities that many apps have, like using your finger to slide across the screen to go “back” or “forward” through pages. I’m in another country right now so there’s a lot of times if I connect to different networks that it’ll just log me out of the app. Why? Why does it do this? Security? I’m logged into a phone that I have to unlock with my fingerprint, for an app that’s used to just buy games there’s no reason I’d have to log back in just because I switch networks, be like the rest of the world and keep me logged in. These are simple annoyances you can easily fix and haven’t, it makes me think you never will or that you actually consider these to be features that people want. I’ll give you some insight, it isn’t. Make your app easier to use, and not so clunky.
Pretty good but can be better...
by Winterpage14 on 2016/07/08 22:49
I don't get why people complain about lag, it works perfectly fine. Another thing people are complaining about is the mobile authenticator. I can see the point that steam tries a little to much to tell you about the authenticator but it's completely necessary. What if hacker decides to go on your steam a punt and trade or sell all of your hard earned skins for a cent each? What if you accidentally sold a skin or trading card for the wrong price and you don't want to go to the market and search the list for the item? The mobile authenticator is just another step in security so nothing is stolen. With all of these attacks on major companies, I think everyone should be thanking valve for not letting everyone's account become public. P.S. I think valve should add a way to play music from the app.
Lost another star
by Trainman42 on 2016/12/07 19:01
I did review the app a while ago, and gave it a 4 star review cuz or minor bugs. Then they didn't fix the bugs in the update (which also didn't show up on my phone), so I dropped a star for bad service. Now, I have dropped another star for more reasons. -Random offline bursts (no ability to check anything on good internet) -Push notifications failing (messages, sales, wishlists, or anything has stopped sending notifications) -Updates don't show up (or they show up but don't change the app) -Messages don't always send, duplicate, or appear in other people's chats (possibly server side issue, happens on computer too) -You can change your icon, but only once from the mobile app before it crashes and doesn't let you anymore -While in a voice call/video call with somebody on your phone, the bar causes the screen to bug (and the text bar to disappear) -Lack of group and voice chats unlike computer version Due to the fact that it's the only place I host games on and play them from, I am left with no choice but to endure the pain it brings. I did warn before that if they did not fix, stars would be dropped. This same warning is being put on, and since 1 star is the lowest, if they do not fix it by then, I will recommend others drop the ratings to legitimate ratings until it is fixed.
Music and online status
by Joe_Rowe on 2016/07/29 19:33
The app is really good but there are a few suggestions I have. The first is why can I not listen to the game soundtracks I bought on mobile devices? I think it would be another reason for people to buy soundtracks. I find that I no motivation to be on steam on my pc just to listen to music on my phone it would be a different story. Finally with the second suggestion I find it annoying that I can't change my online status on mobile like on pc. When I get off of steam on pc I always set status to offline, later I may go into steams mobile app and then get off but my status stays online so I get flooded with messages from friends say "wanna play star conflict" "Hey join meh on rust" And etc. so in conclusion it would be nice to have those basic features added.
Great for browsing, but don't turn off authenticator
by microspace38 on 2017/08/27 21:59
The Steam app is pretty good overall, maybe a bit annoying sometimes, but it work well. Except for one thing: I accidentally turned off the authenticator, and then I re activated it. No big deal, right? Well, now, I have to wait 15 DAYS to be able to sell things again. I can understand having to do that when you first connect your account to the app, but, if you run into my situation, it can be quite a hassle if you want to sell some things. I can understand that Valve wants to make things more secure, but the way they've designed this, it is extremely annoying. Aside from this flaw, it's a pretty good app. Again, just make sure you don't turn off your authenticator on accident, or you'll be screaming at your mobile device!
Great app, except...
by HeyItsNami on 2017/01/12 02:19
The mobile steam app is good overall, but there are two shortcomings I couldn't overlook. First, the menu layout is dysfunctional at best. You can do most things you'd expect to be able to do through steam, but trying to find specific settings or even add a friend requires going through two or sometimes three different menu items before you find what you are looking for. My second grievance is that you can't watch any video previews for games in the app. I'm sure this is a large technical obstacle, but from what I understand, iPhone users have been having this problem for quite some time. Either the videos need to be modified so they can play, or they should just be removed from the mobile version of steam. There is no point in having meaningless video thumbnails cluttering the game's overview, let alone being the first thing you see. If these issues can be addressed, I would be more than happy to alter my review.
It’s ok... but a few things
by _gd05_ on 2018/05/29 23:34
I mean this app was created to mobile authenticate items, but it seems as the whole community has to wait 15 or 7 days because of some problem. In my opinion, steam over-protects everything and doesn’t want anyone being “hacked”. But this protection just causes bad reviews. I as well had to wait 15 days for some stupid reason. But, the only problem I had was I can’t really do anything, a lot of features are broken on here and barely work. It’s an authenticator not a mini-steam. I don’t know why the company wants to make a replica of steam for mobile devices when everyone got it just to use the “Mobile authenticator” and “Steam Guard”. Not to mention the authenticator barely lives up to its purpose. All I need to say.... A currently unsatisfied steam member, -DeLgo (dragongeorge2034)
Okay, But Nothing More
by Ponthegan on 2017/01/04 16:32
The Steam Mobile Client is a useful companion application that is unnecessarily limited. Using both the Desktop Client and the Mobile Client, I feel that there is quite a bit missing here. More than that though, it feels unnecessarily cumbersome to use as well. I don't necessarily mind using it, it is quite useful, but I never have a great experience when I do, which is quite often seeing as I don't actually have an at-home desktop computer. I would love to see an update that works to bridge the gap between the desktop client and the mobile app while making the experience smoother. I don't know when last this app has been updated, but it is in need of a facelift. I would be 100% totally okay paying for a more fleshed-out app if that's what it takes.
App is Bugged.
by xxabyssalxx on 2019/08/30 15:01
The app works as best as it could for mobile. However, if you're looking to search for things, be fully prepared for it to not actually search for multiple things half the time. Odds are, you will be waiting on the last thing you searched before needing to close the whole app and reopening it. If you want to talk to your buddies via steam chat, your best bet is to just use the pc version. There are many apps out there like discord, but if you prefer to use steam chat for a reason. Just be prepared. It sends doubles of your messages whenever you send one out. Without fail. Every single time. It's quite bothersome. For myself personally, I don't know if this is just problems I am experiencing or if everyone is. It only started acting up for me through updates. Just bear it in mind that there is a possibility of it happening too.
Broken and a pain to use
by crabby kingston on 2018/06/07 10:00
Literally it’s only use is for steam guard. LITERALLY. Everything else about this app makes me infuriated. Any trailers you try to watch don’t have sound, because it’s essentially a desktop port made by a monkey. You literally can’t view any messages, friend requests, or invites. the app just takes you to your friends list like some kid was working on it and he decided to finish early so he could play outside, so he decides to just route every menu option to your friends list. Guys and gals, I literally just use the browser version instead of the app for most things because this is bad. Many aspects of it are not intuitive and downright non functional, yet, I haven’t seen an update for the app in Months or years!! They are still making their $$$ and I’m enabling them by buying games but what can you do. Steam: screw you and fix your goods everyone else: have a nice day.
My one problem
by UncleRawb on 2017/04/08 19:37
I've. Den enjoying the app so far, it works for what I use it for. What I mean by that is that I'm not using it to trade skins for CS or anything, I use it to browse community guides and videos, watch my friends stream and message with them. My problem with the app is it's stream function. There is no audio when watching your friend play a game. The is a Steam function in the when the video is playing out of full screen that manages play/pause and sound. Steam automatically puts the video on mute and I cannot unmute it, the function simply doesn't work when I press the button. Its a disappointment when ur trying to watch ur friend fail playing their brand new game. Pls fix this thx
Aging poorly like an abandoned Neopet
by Noworkz on 2018/09/08 21:22
I used to be a big fan of Valve but it’s becoming increasingly harder to rely on as time goes on. I would think that a multibillion-dollar superstar like Valve would be able to invest in making their apps as high-end and as accessible to customers as possible. You’ve been talking about a UI refresh for years but still have little to show for it. It feels like the bare minimum serviceable effort, like a low priority. Valve, you have more than enough clout in the industry to hire some top-tier app developers and UI designers. The easier the app is to access, the easier it is for people to spend money on Steam so yes, this certainly affects your bottom dollar. If I’m wrong and you have an active team dedicated to updating the mobile and desktop apps then what you need to fix is your transparency. As far as we can see, nothing noteworthy has changed in a long time. -J
It does what you need it to do
by Chaseiboy8181 on 2020/09/21 11:16
I works just fine as another bit of security for your account. In fact I love it I know if anyone wants to do anything or sign into my account, it goes through my phone. Now, I’m giving it 4 starts because sometimes it I go to confirmations they page won’t load for awhile. And this is while I’m at home connected to internet. So then I close the app, re open then it normally works. That’s been my only issue and this is really good for keeping your account safe. Personally I recommend attaching an email, and a phone, and changing your pass word every 3~4 months, it’s a slight inconvenience but when its your steam account your talking about, it’s very important
No love for Apple Users.
by MilkdotWhole on 2018/11/26 22:15
Not only does the MacOS client have terrible response times and UI, but it shows that the App Store does in fact have poor applications. Steam has yet to update the interface to “embrace the notch” and we now have 4 smartphones that own the notch in this past year. Two factor auth. Is simply terrible. My college uses two factor, and it’s simply a binary input. No copying numbers in small bursts of time. I understand Apple users don’t normally appeal to Valves customer base, but the reason is the lack of effort to reach to this audience. User experience is vital, and Steam does not provide this whatsoever. If Valve reads this, I suggest looking into modernizing this app. The content you own is incredible, but the way you show it needs work. Take notes from Duo mobile and other interfaces such as the App Store itself.
Why?
by The obvious truth... on 2017/05/17 18:11
I understand the reason for improved security but you shouldn't be punished for having less security… I should be able to sell stuff on the steam market without a phone app. What's worse is you can't comment on others profiles without authentication, yet I can message my steam friends who are the same people I'm trying to comment on. You can't post a community discussion either. There have been moments where I go into a steam games community page to report a bug in their bug report page but can't because of this trash. This is as bad as valves paid mods that failed. Anyone remember that? Valve needs to listen to their community more, they say try do and even say that every game is reviewed to make sure it should be on steam yet bots auto add steam games so their is no quality control and nothing is being fixed. If security is fine, don't fix it.
This app is very buggy and horrible to use on the XS Max
by EvangelosAR on 2019/05/02 03:27
The amount of times it says “chat is offline” is ridiculous. Sometimes I have to type my messages over 2 times for them to even get through. It’s just overall very buggy and they need to put more work into this since mobile authentication is such a big deal for Steam. Please optimize this app for the XS Max so it will look cleaner, and for the love of god please fix all of the chat bugs and make it more enjoyable to use when I’m away from my computer. Not only this, but compared to using the mobile website, clicking on things is noticeably slower on the app vs the mobile website. Especially when trading. There’s definitely a ton of potential on this app and I wish y’all would work on it more!
I really don’t get it...
by Phatboyjawsh on 2018/02/02 17:13
I honestly don’t get why Valve is horrible with their Steam products - such as their mobile app or Steam customer services, etc. People pay good money for things online and sometimes there are issues, yet Steam seems to be the worst when it comes to solving them. It’s as if they have a “better luck next time” policy. Anyways, aside from their horrible customer service, now their app is failing too! It’s been at least half a year now that I’ve encountered the same bug on this app - where it doesn’t show which friends are in game. It’ll simply just say they’re online, away, busy, or offline. They still haven’t fixed it?? I’m sure I’m not the only one getting this issue either. What is the matter with them?? How are they still a company when they seem to be the laziest out there? I don’t get it..
Good but not great
by zantaz66 on 2020/03/05 00:39
This app is good if you want to focus on the community market or workshop aspect of Steam, but other than that it’s severely lacking. I wouldn’t expect it to run games or browse the store, that’s what Steam on the PC is for. But one feature I would like is the ability to change your profile picture from the Steam app itself, right now when you press the “Choose File” button it simply doesn’t function. It would be great if it would open the camera roll of the phone so you can select from there but it doesn’t have the capability to. I would like to see this feature but other than that it’s a decent app.
Extremely Aggrivating Messaging Problem
by Boibobiboviboovibobobojdjsjsjs on 2018/09/03 18:57
The steam app worked perfectly previous to getting my new IPhone 8+ however now when I’m messaging people on steam the chat will frequently go offline when I’m obviously connected to the internet and have no problem loading things. When the error occurs I’ll have to restart the app several times in order to be able to actually send the message to someone. Also sometimes it will appear to be working and I’ll type a long, well thought out message just to click send and see that nothing gets sent and my entire message disappears, leaving me extremely frustrated and often leading to me just dropping the whole message. Please resolve this problem as I do spend a lot of time on the mobile app mostly for the purpose of messaging people.
What
by Lava Lamp Blue on 2017/08/04 03:12
I downloaded this app only so I wouldn't have to wait the 15 days to sell things. After setting up the security thing, the app froze, restarting the app and my phone didn't work, so I reinstalled it. I had to log in again, which I couldn't do because I needed my mobile verification, which I couldn't get because I wasn't logged in yet. So I had to get rid of mobile verification, sign in by verifying my email, then get the mobile verification again, only to have the app keep freezing again. And from other reviews, it turns out I still need to wait 7 days to sell things with the app even if it worked, which it doesn't. Maybe if valve spent as much effort as it does forcing us to get the app in order to sell things on the market as it did making the app usable, it wouldn't have 2.5 stars.
Lot of Bad Reviews Based on User Errror
by Dcast89 on 2017/05/01 00:04
This is a good app that's easy to navigate. Some parts of it involve the need to scroll or zoom more than you should in an app but it's still functional (it's sort of like browsing a mobile version of the Steam website on Safari more than an app). I use the market for trades and buys and mobile authenticator. I don't have any of the problems that other users are writing about but I will admit there's a learning curve for these systems (not iOS specific learning curve, just the Steam ecosystem in general). I would recommend heading to support forums and learning the ropes a bit but I don't see specific issues with this app.
Possible removal of features?
by Matic01 on 2018/10/12 16:27
I don’t use the steam app outside of the Authenticator and browsing for new games. I can get over the buggy nature of the UI as it isn’t what the company was originally making. But I used to be able to install games remotely provided I had a computer logged in. As of the last update(I’m unsure when that was since I payed no mind to it at the time) I’m unable to install games even from my library. Personally this felt like a sorely needed feature since I’m sure just about everyone would rather start the download remotely and come back to their computer later on with it completed and ready to play. Not sure if this was axed completely or is intended to come back later but at least for me I feel this app was gutted.
I LOVE THIS APP!
by JakeRedBlade on 2018/06/03 20:02
All the bad reviews are nonsense, this is a very helpful app and considering it has no ads and no iap it’s very good,everyone out there reading this please note that this app may not be the best due to the fact Valve pays €60 a month to keep this app on app store and they get no profit they are being extremely kind! Btw I have no bugs, I use this app on iPhone 4s, no issues, iPhone 5s, no issues. And the well known pc version I have experienced no bugs altough I’m opted for Steam betas. Valve is paying for nothing, they don’t have to do it, and they are doing it for you guys. So have some respect and give 5 stars
They will not help you once they have your money
by Krisa on 2017/12/17 00:47
I downloaded the app so I could buy a game. I downloaded the game but can’t play it without going through the app. Which would be fine if the app let me in. It keeps telling me my password is wrong, I go through the steps to change it and it still won’t let me in. I can get no online help because you have to log in to ask your question. I’ve left pleading message on the support team on Twitter only to be ignored. I’d say screw it but I paid for my game and want access to it. I feel as though I’ve gone through all my options. I have no doubt no one from the company reads these reviews but maybe I can stop it from happening to someone else. So not worth your time and money for a company that will ignore you the moment they get your money.
Struggle to chat with steam friends
by [AS]_Princess on 2018/09/07 06:07
I have this app mostly to see who is online and to chat about games on steam, however, I have to type and send the same message multiple times in order to be sent. For some reason clicking “send” 1 time is not enough. So I pretty much click send, steam disappears my message without sending it, then J rewrite, click send, and same cycle keeps happening. Also, even though I may be online chatting, every time i open a different app (multitask on the phone) it tells the person i’m chatting that i’m now offline which is pretty annoying.. so every time I go back to the app it says i’m online and when i open another app even though i’m going back and forth in a conversation it says i’m offline.
Useful, but not efficient.
by Hpl123 on 2019/09/19 11:28
This app is useful for checking market, communicating with friends etc but not anything beyond that. Good to see profile, leave comments but things happen very slowly. You have to wait for a while for a page to load, or you can exit and reopen the app for it to load faster. Sometimes a bug occurs where it says you aren't logged in. Overall, I am glad this app exists but I can't say I really recommend it as a good alternative to the computer version of steam. I only use it for steam things when I am not around my computer. Devs, I hope you can fix some of the performance issues on this mobile app and make it much easier to access things like on desktop.
Terrible Experience
by ChristianMedia on 2017/01/30 11:36
Recently I tried to sell some things on the community market. On my computer it has the normal message, log into the mobile authenticator or whatever to confirm the listing. So all day I try to confirm these items and it doesn't work saying to reload again. I decide to reinstall the app thinking it may work now. When prompted to log in, it gives me an option about if I want to disable the app and use email. That would be much easier so I finally do that and after it emails and texts me 2 different codes, it doesn't let me log in to the authenticator/the app. So now I am stuck waiting 15 days to trade and about a week or so for the market holds. I have no idea why it is so complicated to perform simple tasks on steam. I'm quite fed up with all this unnecessary security.
You get a crash! And you get a crash!
by Extinctconcept on 2018/10/02 23:47
Would be nice if this thing didn’t crash every two minutes. The UI is also clunky as all hell want to view images or videos from a game how about a horizontal scroll bar with no arrows that you have to hop you pressed and slid just right without accidentally launching a video that may or may not actually play audio then promptly locking up and crashing again. This thing just needs to be completely scrapped and rebuilt. Viewing steam in your phones web browser is more useful than this app. The only benefit this app has is the mobile Authenticator just to add an extra layer of security to your steam account. And even that is just barely passable at best. Valve you need to go back to the drawing board and figure out how to make a mobile app.
Needs total overhaul
by Jack Seibert on 2019/01/28 05:05
As of this post the Steam iOS app was last updated TWO YEARS AGO. The desktop client has undergone several major revisions and desktop chat was completely overhauled, bringing in much-needed modern features to the world’s biggest gaming platform. Where are my QoL changes on mobile? It’s little more than a front end for the store and an Authenticator. URLs in chat are not even hyperlinked, I have to copy and paste them into a real browser. I have “new item” notifications that I can’t clear and I have to sign in every time I open the app, even if I am actively receiving notifications from it. This is disgraceful. The only reason this is getting two stars is because it’s at least not actively broken.
Pointless app
by DSC_Seatac on 2017/12/08 18:46
You can view your cart but not your wishlist. Who on earth would keep anything in their cart? You can add things to your wishlist but then can’t view it. Does everything on the planet have to be another social media platform? I just want to play games. Maybe I’m old. I just wanted to be able to browse my wishlist and decide what to buy next. This is a half-assed attempt at a mobile version of Steam, just to be able to say “we did it.” They obviously didn't put any effort into it and they haven’t even updated it in over a year. This app has well earned its majority of one-star reviews.

Is it really mobile
by Two bibs on 2020/09/23 19:33
You need a computer to play so can you call it mobile
Not what was expected

It does what you need it to do
by Chaseiboy8181 on 2020/09/21 11:16
I works just fine as another bit of security for your account. In fact I love it I know if anyone wants to do anything or sign into my account, it goes through my phone. Now, I’m giving it 4 starts because sometimes it I go to confirmations they page won’t load for awhile. And this is while I’m at home connected to internet. So then I close the app, re open then it normally works. That’s been my only issue and this is really good for keeping your account safe. Personally I recommend attaching an email, and a phone, and changing your pass word every 3~4 months, it’s a slight inconvenience but when its your steam account your talking about, it’s very important
Security
by Amazing 😘😍👌 on 2020/09/21 01:16
I was easily breached and they took my account over. I had asked whether or not they could give me back my items as I knew who had stolen them. But they do not care about their customers and did not even ban the hacker. I had downloaded the app as a means of security but that had obviously not worked. They refused any way of helping me, allowing the hacker to get away and take around several hundred dollars from me. I wish this doesn’t happen to anyone else, but there needs to be a change in steam policies for innocent people not just the general population.

No search

No search feature for friends unlike the android version, so pretty useless unless you wanna scroll through everything
Useful.
by MinecraftTDS on 2020/09/17 17:33
I was going to put awesome for the title, but it isn’t a game. Useful as in it helps ease things. True, Authenticators and Holds take 7-15 days, but after waiting those times out, The app is So useful. All those other bad reviews are just impatient people, or people who don’t understand steam enough. This app gives So many Benefits It’s silly to play steam without this app. Also Petition for steam to be labeled as a Accessory, not a game.
It does not let me into the app
by gabriel. ? on 2020/09/16 15:45
It’s not let me in the app because it says that there’s a fake domain trying to act like steamcommunity.com. But overall steam is great but I would like to get in the app to actually use it
Barely works
by nathan deth on 2020/09/16 04:58
Whenever you click on something, you have a dice roll on whether or not it wants to copy it or open it. Also, getting steam guard is way too hard. There is only a 1 minute timeframe to get to the link they send you, but sometimes you get, “phone number invalid.”
Can’t even log in
by Necro nerd on 2020/09/15 02:59
I’m positive that I have my name and password correct, but it keeps saying it’s wrong, I’ve confirmed that I’m correct too. And it won’t even let me attempt it anymore

The most disgusting UI on the App Store. A total disaster.
by rooattack on 2020/09/13 00:22
Probably one of the biggest failures in UI history. You will pull your eyes out the second you open this thing. I’ve yet to experience this level of total frustration; embarrassment, and anxiety using an app on iOS. You’d think a $100mill company could hire a few ‘real’ UI/UX designers to overhaul this thing. I mean, you don’t even have to update it. Just dump this complete barf of mess and start over. Start simple. STEAM, you should be ashamed of yourself. Ashamed of your team. Do you think us devs want to show our faces on this thing? Think again. We have an actual brand to protect and your crapping all over everybody with this design.
Fix the app
by spy27592 on 2020/09/12 21:39

Broken, busted, but still usable
by DONGSQUAD420xX on 2020/09/08 17:13
It’s like pulling teeth for this app to respond but there is no real alternative for accessing Steam. When using an iPhone 11 on plenty fast wifi I typically expect to be able to view games/info in a timely manner. Instead I must tap several times, which is usually a minor setback; the glitches absolutely stack up when you have to navigate multiple pages. Searching for, and visiting the store-page of a game via IOS Steam App takes roughly as long as booting my PC, loading steam, and seeing it there. God forbid you get an age verification screen.
I can’t creat an account

by Hurbanik on 2020/09/07 17:31
I want to first start out by saying that using steam on a PC is amazing. BUT their app is incredibly buggy and the UI feels like it was made by a junior high coding class project. Which honestly I feel bad lumping then in there because they’re new. But steam is full of “professionally paid” people and we have to deal with this garbage. Delete this and just stick with the PC version.

I noticed under setting you cannot set your birthday while you have dark mode on as the text is invisible I had this issue on another app in the past so I tried turning off dark mode and then I could see it again. It just means this area does not support dark mode and I would love it if you guys can add in support for dark mode on iOS 13.7 for iPhone SE Second Generation

Unusable when you need it most.
by Dkaned on 2020/09/02 13:06
Logs you out and then the app can't be used as an authenticator. There are no back buttons in the browser, and since the password recovery is handled through the browser, if you want to try another option, you have to force close the app and start over. I successfully recovered my password but now I have to do it again because it's trying to remove my steam guard. I didn't click that option, but I can't go back...

Just spent 30min trying to first create an account, then buy fallguys (apparently published today per my 11 year old) then start playing fallguys. Take away - can’t start and play fall guys. Why? Not sure. Seems like we’re caught in a vicious circle between downloading, captcha, press and press, tap tap tap same buttons over and over and over and over and over and over...

by rcoffee333 on 2020/08/30 13:07
I haven’t encountered any bugs at all with this app. And that’s a really good sign of it being a good app. The only problem I have with this app is that when you click on a button it takes 5-10 seconds to actually go to the page. And this isn’t my WiFi because I have very fast WiFi and it’s works fine with everything else. Also isn’t my phone because I have the 11 so steam devs you guys should look into making the app faster.

How does a company that makes so much money find success doing nothing
by SharksAteMyWife on 2020/08/28 23:47
Valve can’t even be bothered to fix the things that help them make more money. Navigating this app is such a horrid experience, and you run into all sorts of problems. Confirming trades always runs you into an error screen, even if it actually worked. Forget using the community workshop or relying on the messaging client.

Everything is fine other than these problems: sometimes messages you send to friends show that they’ve been sent twice. I want to change what my availability is (online, invisible, do not Disturb, etc) and that you can’t send images via phone. Images sent from pc only show links. Links don’t work.
It sort of works some of the time
by George Mhmmm on 2020/08/27 22:22
The app is pretty buggy and clunky. When it works it’s OK at best but expect features to not work. Some examples: video previews of games not working, store browsing being really slow and clunky, search features not working. The list goes on. These things get fixed over time but over all paints a picture of mediocrity.

by NuclearMcGinnis on 2020/08/18 02:27
For some reason whenever i use this app on my iPad, i cant even access the login screen. The android version of this app works fine on my phone, but whenever i open the app here on my iPad, it leaves me at a almost blank screen that says “login” at the top, but that “Button” doesnt do anything when i tap on it, and theres nothing else on that screen. It SOMETIMES allows me to attempt a refresh, but whenever i do, it just keeps refreshing for a good five minutes or so before ultimately failing, and giving me an error message, and then failing to even allow me to attempt a refresh any further times. Someone, please fix this issue. I’d like to at least be able to access steam on my iPad.

by Hell trim on 2020/08/17 16:20
Downloaded this and “steam chat” because steam said that I needed them to “authenticate” my account. Otherwise, my market listings that I’m trying to sell will be put on hold. So I downloaded both, already had an error upon start up (not even logged in yet). And after logging in, there’s no prompt for me to authenticate my account. I’ve already authenticate multiple times via email confirmation codes within the past 10 minutes or so, but still nothing. Still on hold for market listings... pretty dumb. I’m all in for security, etc. but it doesn’t make sense to go through this much trouble to sell a CS:GO box/case for $0.90. Edit: Now, I’m getting confirmation errors. Really dumb as I’m only trying to sell cases from CS:GO that costs literal cents.

This app does nothing well. It's a thin wrapper around Steam's hopelessly broken web frontend. There are countless rendering errors, even on the largest available iPhone. If you load a large library page, the content automatically scrolls up as images load. The people who built this should be ashamed and unemployed.

More payment options
by Jkmorris18 on 2020/08/11 22:43
The app does its job in allowing you to access steam on a mobile device, but I think that you should be able to use iTunes money to add funds to your account. As a younger person with none of the available payment options, it would be nice to have a way to put my money into steam directly rather than relying on my dad to do it for me.

Buggy but decent
by Shaggyz5150 on 2019/12/30 06:22
To start there is a huge bug that always signs you out of your account each time you close the app or have it running in the back for a while. But I do like that you can buy games and chat with your friends on steam through the app or checking up on your library. I wish that they would implement activation of steam products instead of having to use the web or desktop application. Plus having the steam guard attached to the app is wonderful always a good thing to have extra security on your accounts to prevent unauthorized people to access your account. And having it go straight to the app instead of checking your email every time you log in makes it so much easier. But I did give it three stars due to the issues that is has like the signing you out, long load times, and random crashing. I would have given it 5 stars if they fix these issues but it seems like after a while they still haven’t fixed it even though they have acknowledged that they have known about the specific signing out issue. I love the app and it use to work flawlessly not earlier this year. I just hope that they can return the app to its former glory.
15 day trade ban/hold is the most silliest thing ever
by Lord Ainz on 2020/02/05 06:49
I recently changed into my new iPhone and I have also changed my old phone number to a new phone number ever since I moved to another state to live there. Since I can’t confirm any trades on my new iPhone, they instructed me to disable the authenticator on my old iPhone and enable it on my new iPhone, which I did. HOWEVER, 1 big issue I have is that they never “warn you” what happens when you disable or enable a steam guard authenticator. They place a whopping fat 15 DAYS of not being able to trade with anyone and use the community market at all. During that time I had made great offers with a person on Discord and because of this I have to apologize to him due to the 15 days of trade ban. My BIG issue here is 15 days is waaaaay too long to not be able to do anything. If Valve’s excuse is to prevent Hackers that accessed your steam account and start trading your items to theirs or something like that, shouldn’t 1-3 days be more than sufficient for the actual owner of the steam account to respond, remove those trades, change password and security instead of 15 WHOPPING DAYS? As long as they don’t change that 15 days hold/ban I am keeping this app at a 1 Star, I wish I could rate it a lot lower, and I HOPEFULLY WISH they read through the comments, criticism and reviews and improve on one of the major flaws of their trade/ authenticator system.
Only good for tracking sales and 2FA
by Goldmaaaaan on 2019/10/08 11:15
It provides the most barebones feature of being able to provide 2 factor authentication for your account and to check sales. Every single other function of this app is unbearable and in many cases unusable. Try to search a game and you’re given a wrapper of the desktop webpage search, which is hilariously clumsy when you have to use your fingers on a mobile app. Every other company has figured this out but Valve, with their billions, haven’t hired someone to design a proper search page within the app. I currently have 3 notifications in the Steam app, which will apparently never go away unless I uninstall it. One is for a missed message, but no matter how many times you read that message or reply to that person or refresh, that notification is there, forever. I also have 2 comments on a review I left, but for the app to load it it is to go through the login process again for some reason, which has never given me anything but “Failed to communicate with the server.” And this is how it’s been for years. This app looks and works the exact same way it did when I first downloaded it in 2014. I’ve given up expecting Valve to invest any tiny amount of time in making this app remotely usable for anything but tracking sales and for login authentication.
Great app for checking the Steam store..
by Mbrogz3000 on 2017/07/02 14:24
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.
Not Great
by MadMusic26 on 2019/12/02 16:23
It is convenient to have a way of checking the Steam store from your phone and the mobile authentication is a helpful feature, but that is where the positives end. Despite being an app made for accessing the store on mobile devices, it’s easy to see that they put little to no effort into converting the store for mobile use. Navigation is difficult, often words and buttons are too small to use (you end up clicking things you never meant to click because the screen is too crowded). The app is ALWAYS crashing and lags like nobody’s business. I have used the app for a few years and have yet to see any significant changes to performance or design, so I’m not sure if Valve is even maintaining it. In fact the only reason I’m writing a review at all is because I’m hoping someone will take these low reviews into consideration and make some real changes to the app that improve performance and ease of use. The one thing I can say is when you’re using the app you can tell it’s Steam you’re on; the interface is so similar, but again that’s not exactly a good thing when you optimize something for mobile use. I really hope they focus on a more mobile friendly design in the future.
Needs a lot of fixing
by Tanner Jones 73 on 2019/10/08 20:59
Don’t get me wrong by the review, I love playing on steam. But the fact that trading cannot be done without having this app is infuriating. For those that don’t know, trading, unless you have this app, takes about 2 weeks for items to arrive for both parties. That’s pretty outrageous. But the app itself is incredibly Non-user friendly. Buttons taking multiple clicks just to work, strange layout, that sort of thing. But trading can be one of the worst things to deal with. It would be so much better if it didn’t force you to log into the app to confirm a trade for 1 item. Plus there’s signing people out for no apparent reason, which forces them to reset the steam security, which then forces you back into trading holding, for a much shorter time, but you still have to wait. They decide that just signing in at points restarts the steam security. It’s just a pain to use. Please valve, fix this app. First thing should be to make the app more user friendly. Then focus on more specialized areas, like fixing trading, something like that. Either that or revamp the trading system to make it less of a hassle to deal with. Just a few suggestions but as the title implies, it needs plenty of fixes
The app is good but...
by Maxwell Burke on 2019/12/29 20:09
The app is good, it is a little klunky. I really liked the mobile authentication. The problem I have with this app is Steam itself. One of the worst companies out there. I have had my account for 5 years and have 20+ games on it with over 2,500 hours total play time, and I can’t use mobile authentication anymore. For some reason, when I got a new phone and wanted to use mobile authentication on my new phone, it would not let me. I was locked out of my account for 5 days and unable to play any Steam games. So I messaged Steam Support about the problem and their solution? Permanently remove my phone number that has been attached to my Steam account for 5 years. I also can’t use my phone number on any other accounts. I can’t use mobile authentication to log in, my account feels less secure, but then again, in the first place I only played games with friends and never shared my password to anyone. Why feel the need to permanently remove my phone number from my account or any account. In conclusion, for a company who wants people to play their games and use their software, they sure do an awful lot to keep people from doing that.
Broken App Needs more Attention
by Tiki_chik on 2020/04/24 10:42
There are a whole bunch of problems with this app. The Steam Guard is absolutely horrendous, especially since you cant sign back in with the guard on via email confirmation and it HAS to be by your phone number. This ended up locking us out of our own account and having to contact steam to get it back. Another thing is when we don’t have troublesome Steam Guard on and when i put up a sale on MY OWN ACCOUNT. I can’t confirm my sale to the market because of not having the Guard on. DESPITE BEING LOGGED IN ON MY OWN ACCOUNT THAT IM MAKING A SALE ON!! which makes absolutely no sense. theres another problems and thats with the chats on the app. I dont get notifications from the application when someone messages me and thats bothersome when i get onto the PC of steam and someone messaged a good few hours before. Another thing which is a nitpick but for a reason. on our computer whenever we open steam the application logs us out every time we close the app or restart the computer. This..would be fine...if my games wouldn't have been uninstalled when i get logged back into Steam. I really hope this app gets fixing but i really don't have faith that it will improve anytime soon.
A Usable Trainwreck
by MagicSofa on 2020/07/01 15:21
If you’ve seen the previous reviews, you already know the Steam app is pretty mediocre. While it does execute most of the features of the Steam website on desktop, it doesn’t do so enough to justify using the app instead of the web version on your phone. Only get this app if you want an authenticator and are willing to deal with the UI and frequent glitching. I’ve tested out purchases, store pages, and community browsing. The app crashes on the new “steam points” page when you look at animated backgrounds, and sometimes randomly crashes while browsing communities. Purchases are relatively painless, even with the clunky UI. Overall, I’m giving the app 3 stars for its built-in authenticator feature, which you don’t need to navigate a bunch of menus to get to, and its passable store and community features. The profile management is also on point with no hiccups. The Steam app has a LOT of room for improvement, and I encourage Valve to give more attention to this application, as it hasn’t come close to the degree of quality I expect from them.
Functional but Disappointingly Absent Continued Support
by y4rn on 2019/02/15 14:40
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.
Good! One Slight Problem.....
by #HashTagMe on 2018/12/30 17:13
This app in general is good! I love it in every way. I could do a rant against the haters using all my knowledge. There is one thing.... it’s not much of a problem. I would like to see it fixed though because, I don’t think it would take very long to fix. Changing your profile pick is impossible. You’ll click “Edit Profile”, then you can edit it. However, when you go down to change your profile pick, it says “Choose/Pick File” and “Upload File” next to that. You could go to google/a search web, save an image, but if you go and click choose file, nothing happens. Nothing pops up or anything. It’s not a super big problem, but I wow old like to see it fixed. Anyways, this is a really good app in general! I would rate this 4 stars but since the small problem I stated was well, small, I give this app a big fat 5 stars! Hope you fix this small problem! If you can’t, I guess that’s ok. -Willow aka djbroomstick
Technical Issues
by NotTakenUsername123454321 on 2017/03/28 21:26
I downloaded the app 3 days ago to remove the automatic hold for items listed on the steam market. Download went well, app worked great, once I attempted to setup the mobile Authenticator I pressed the "back" option on the upper tab because the codes weren't loading (don't do this) and once I tried to go back it wouldn't let me because I had already authorized a device. So I de -authorize all my devices through the steam computer application, sign out of the mobile app and sign back in and sign up for steam guard. I log into the app again and it's working this time, however I realize I'm now blocked for 15 days FOR EVERYTHING ON THE STEAM MARKET! Reading on the steam help page there is no way around this 15 day hold. ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS! Please give more specific instructions about de-authorizing devices and the consequences of doing so and remove the "back" (>) tab on the mobile guard section as to not lock yourself out. 15 days because I reauthorized the same device is crazy. Please explain the codes automatically appear on your device and you don't have to de-authorize to get these codes. Please explain how and what the codes are and when you enter them.
Good, but THERE IS NO LINK TO THE WISHLIST.
by Ryanxj9000 on 2020/04/14 05:20
Works well enough, but there is NO link to the Wishlist within the app. If you compare it to the mobile website, it looks almost identical but with a huge exception. On the website there is a link to your Wishlist on the left side drop-down menu on the left side. It is conspiculously missing in the app. Makes ZERO SENSE. I can only get to my Wishlist by using a workaround: Searching for a game that I know is already on my Wishlist, going to that game’s page and clicking the Wishlist button you would click to add the game to your Wishlist. If a game is already on your Wishlist, clicking that will take you to your Wishlist. This seems silly for them to not fix this. It’s been a year since I noticed it, and Support is no help and seems clueless telling me to update my phone and app. They ARE updated. And reinstalling does NOTHING.
Terrible Customer Experience
by Teem Dodger on 2016/12/31 17:55
Basically, all I wanted to do was to sell the useless cards that have accumulated in my Steam inventory. So, I pick an item I want to sell, click about four buttons to confirm that I want to sell it, and then have to log in to my email to confirm that I want to sell some card for 5 cents. Job done, right? Well, no. Now the 5 cent card is on hold, and to "remove the need for placing a market item on hold," Steam tells me I should use the Mobile Authenticator. What's that? Well, it's the mobile app. So, I download the app, authenticate IT through my email, search online for where the "Mobile Authenticator" is in the app (the name in the app is "Steam Guard," not "Mobile Authenticator") and the items are STILL on hold. Apparently I have to keep this app on my phone for 7 days before I have the privilege of selling a useless 5 cent card. No thanks. I am done with this. Maybe just let me sell this useless junk in the Steam program on my computer? I have no need for a Steam app taking up space on my phone. I'm going to think twice before buying anything on Steam thanks to this customer service experience.
Bad Reviews are User Error
by Gamma Lead on 2017/12/31 01:55
I usually don't bother reviewing unless an app does something exceptional or horrendous. This app, while not the most polished, definitely does not deserve the rating it has. I look at the reviews, and the bad ones, half are due to self-admitted user error, half are about someone bemoaning the need for account security. I got the app and used it to make an account and look up, scrutinize, and then purchase a game before I even had Steam on my computer. I have had no issues with it from that starting point or ever since. I am downloading this again on a spare device due to some technical difficulties not related to the app, and am appalled that its rating is so low solely because people lacking the ability to navigate an app or because they want less security for their account. Complain to steam support or the forms, don't rate a workable app poorly due to your own incompetence.
App needs an overhaul
by CDiAKing on 2018/09/17 03:35
Like most PC gamers, Steam is indispensable to my life. However, the app needs a lot of work. For far too long it has been plagued by the lack of a proper ‘back’ button, which means that when you are simply browsing the store and navigating through pages, the back button just relaunches the last page you were on, rather than returning you to your place. This is aggravating when flipping through sale items or DLC content, and it’s effectively just like browsing the store through a browser window. The UI is also slow and just not polished enough in general. It seems odd for such a wealthy company to have such a poorly implemented app, which has shown little improvement over the years. Other features work well for the most part, like chatting with friends and Steam Guard. The biggest downside for me is the store experience, which is in need of a major overhaul. Hopefully some day soon we will see an improvement to the in-app store experience.
Outdated, slow, and full of bugs.
by SchneiderNicholas on 2018/02/10 08:46
Unfortunately, the app needs some serious updating. Currently, it does not fit the screen size of hardly any modern phone, on the iPhone X it is especially obnoxious having an app the size of an iPhone 5 screen. In addition, the major bugs I have found are: 1.) An odd glitch where switching between apps causes it to flash the messages and keyboard when sending or receiving. 2.) A bug where after switching back to the app it duplicates messages sent. 3.) Especially since the latest iOS and on the iPhone X, chat is offline for a good 2-7 seconds upon opening or sometimes switching back to it or turning the device out of sleep. 4.) A very frequent bug where it says the other user is typing while they are not. To fix this, you have to go back to the friends list, refresh, and then go back; sometimes that doesn’t even work. Also sometimes tells other users you are typing when you are not. 5.) Not necessarily a bug but definitely something that should be changed: when you switch apps even for one second, it sets your Steam status to away. For anyone talking to someone else on the app from the computer client, it’s obnoxious. It should definitely wait at least 3-4 minutes for people who have background refresh on. 6.) You cannot change your Steam profile picture because the app will not prompt iOS for photos. Please fix the app. It’s been over a year since the last update.
Mobile Authenticator for a Reason
by Critic of the Month on 2016/06/13 05:20
For all of the people complaining about how you need to download the mobile authenticator, heres why: hacking. If your account were to get hijacked by a hacker, would you want all of your precious CSGO skins to be stolen? No. With the email authenticator, the hackers can steal your skins and verify it, as they only need to go onto chrome or yandex to long into your email and confirm everything. Would you truly want the skins which caused you to have stage 4 of skin insanity to disappear from you? No. Stop complaining and just get the thing. Its even faster than email because you only have to click two buttons, but on email you have to wait, and wait longer, and still wait, and then finally the email pops up. And then it glitches. Just get it.

This app isn’t for people who want to do everything steam related on their phone. This app is obviously for people who want to manage steam in a way outside of their pc. This is a secondary way to access steam and is not meant to be used as a primary way to navigate steam. Don’t expect this app to do everything and more of what steam does on your desktop, because that isn’t what a was made for. That being said it does a great job at doing what it’s supposed to do. I great way to ACCESS you account and VIEW what your account tells you. If you want to buy a game for your computer go to the actual steam application. If you don’t have a steam account what are you doin here. Go make one on your computer where you are going to play the actual games.
Disappointed
by Taylor9990909 on 2018/06/29 18:22
For being such an enormous digital distribution platform on desktops, the steam mobile app is sorely lacking. It’s confusing, cluttered, lacks basic abilities that many apps have, like using your finger to slide across the screen to go “back” or “forward” through pages. I’m in another country right now so there’s a lot of times if I connect to different networks that it’ll just log me out of the app. Why? Why does it do this? Security? I’m logged into a phone that I have to unlock with my fingerprint, for an app that’s used to just buy games there’s no reason I’d have to log back in just because I switch networks, be like the rest of the world and keep me logged in. These are simple annoyances you can easily fix and haven’t, it makes me think you never will or that you actually consider these to be features that people want. I’ll give you some insight, it isn’t. Make your app easier to use, and not so clunky.
Pretty good but can be better...
by Winterpage14 on 2016/07/08 22:49
I don't get why people complain about lag, it works perfectly fine. Another thing people are complaining about is the mobile authenticator. I can see the point that steam tries a little to much to tell you about the authenticator but it's completely necessary. What if hacker decides to go on your steam a punt and trade or sell all of your hard earned skins for a cent each? What if you accidentally sold a skin or trading card for the wrong price and you don't want to go to the market and search the list for the item? The mobile authenticator is just another step in security so nothing is stolen. With all of these attacks on major companies, I think everyone should be thanking valve for not letting everyone's account become public. P.S. I think valve should add a way to play music from the app.
Lost another star
by Trainman42 on 2016/12/07 19:01
I did review the app a while ago, and gave it a 4 star review cuz or minor bugs. Then they didn't fix the bugs in the update (which also didn't show up on my phone), so I dropped a star for bad service. Now, I have dropped another star for more reasons. -Random offline bursts (no ability to check anything on good internet) -Push notifications failing (messages, sales, wishlists, or anything has stopped sending notifications) -Updates don't show up (or they show up but don't change the app) -Messages don't always send, duplicate, or appear in other people's chats (possibly server side issue, happens on computer too) -You can change your icon, but only once from the mobile app before it crashes and doesn't let you anymore -While in a voice call/video call with somebody on your phone, the bar causes the screen to bug (and the text bar to disappear) -Lack of group and voice chats unlike computer version Due to the fact that it's the only place I host games on and play them from, I am left with no choice but to endure the pain it brings. I did warn before that if they did not fix, stars would be dropped. This same warning is being put on, and since 1 star is the lowest, if they do not fix it by then, I will recommend others drop the ratings to legitimate ratings until it is fixed.
Music and online status
by Joe_Rowe on 2016/07/29 19:33
The app is really good but there are a few suggestions I have. The first is why can I not listen to the game soundtracks I bought on mobile devices? I think it would be another reason for people to buy soundtracks. I find that I no motivation to be on steam on my pc just to listen to music on my phone it would be a different story. Finally with the second suggestion I find it annoying that I can't change my online status on mobile like on pc. When I get off of steam on pc I always set status to offline, later I may go into steams mobile app and then get off but my status stays online so I get flooded with messages from friends say "wanna play star conflict" "Hey join meh on rust" And etc. so in conclusion it would be nice to have those basic features added.
Great for browsing, but don't turn off authenticator
by microspace38 on 2017/08/27 21:59
The Steam app is pretty good overall, maybe a bit annoying sometimes, but it work well. Except for one thing: I accidentally turned off the authenticator, and then I re activated it. No big deal, right? Well, now, I have to wait 15 DAYS to be able to sell things again. I can understand having to do that when you first connect your account to the app, but, if you run into my situation, it can be quite a hassle if you want to sell some things. I can understand that Valve wants to make things more secure, but the way they've designed this, it is extremely annoying. Aside from this flaw, it's a pretty good app. Again, just make sure you don't turn off your authenticator on accident, or you'll be screaming at your mobile device!
Great app, except...
by HeyItsNami on 2017/01/12 02:19
The mobile steam app is good overall, but there are two shortcomings I couldn't overlook. First, the menu layout is dysfunctional at best. You can do most things you'd expect to be able to do through steam, but trying to find specific settings or even add a friend requires going through two or sometimes three different menu items before you find what you are looking for. My second grievance is that you can't watch any video previews for games in the app. I'm sure this is a large technical obstacle, but from what I understand, iPhone users have been having this problem for quite some time. Either the videos need to be modified so they can play, or they should just be removed from the mobile version of steam. There is no point in having meaningless video thumbnails cluttering the game's overview, let alone being the first thing you see. If these issues can be addressed, I would be more than happy to alter my review.
It’s ok... but a few things
by _gd05_ on 2018/05/29 23:34
I mean this app was created to mobile authenticate items, but it seems as the whole community has to wait 15 or 7 days because of some problem. In my opinion, steam over-protects everything and doesn’t want anyone being “hacked”. But this protection just causes bad reviews. I as well had to wait 15 days for some stupid reason. But, the only problem I had was I can’t really do anything, a lot of features are broken on here and barely work. It’s an authenticator not a mini-steam. I don’t know why the company wants to make a replica of steam for mobile devices when everyone got it just to use the “Mobile authenticator” and “Steam Guard”. Not to mention the authenticator barely lives up to its purpose. All I need to say.... A currently unsatisfied steam member, -DeLgo (dragongeorge2034)
Okay, But Nothing More
by Ponthegan on 2017/01/04 16:32
The Steam Mobile Client is a useful companion application that is unnecessarily limited. Using both the Desktop Client and the Mobile Client, I feel that there is quite a bit missing here. More than that though, it feels unnecessarily cumbersome to use as well. I don't necessarily mind using it, it is quite useful, but I never have a great experience when I do, which is quite often seeing as I don't actually have an at-home desktop computer. I would love to see an update that works to bridge the gap between the desktop client and the mobile app while making the experience smoother. I don't know when last this app has been updated, but it is in need of a facelift. I would be 100% totally okay paying for a more fleshed-out app if that's what it takes.
App is Bugged.
by xxabyssalxx on 2019/08/30 15:01
The app works as best as it could for mobile. However, if you're looking to search for things, be fully prepared for it to not actually search for multiple things half the time. Odds are, you will be waiting on the last thing you searched before needing to close the whole app and reopening it. If you want to talk to your buddies via steam chat, your best bet is to just use the pc version. There are many apps out there like discord, but if you prefer to use steam chat for a reason. Just be prepared. It sends doubles of your messages whenever you send one out. Without fail. Every single time. It's quite bothersome. For myself personally, I don't know if this is just problems I am experiencing or if everyone is. It only started acting up for me through updates. Just bear it in mind that there is a possibility of it happening too.
Broken and a pain to use
by crabby kingston on 2018/06/07 10:00
Literally it’s only use is for steam guard. LITERALLY. Everything else about this app makes me infuriated. Any trailers you try to watch don’t have sound, because it’s essentially a desktop port made by a monkey. You literally can’t view any messages, friend requests, or invites. the app just takes you to your friends list like some kid was working on it and he decided to finish early so he could play outside, so he decides to just route every menu option to your friends list. Guys and gals, I literally just use the browser version instead of the app for most things because this is bad. Many aspects of it are not intuitive and downright non functional, yet, I haven’t seen an update for the app in Months or years!! They are still making their $$$ and I’m enabling them by buying games but what can you do. Steam: screw you and fix your goods everyone else: have a nice day.
My one problem
by UncleRawb on 2017/04/08 19:37
I've. Den enjoying the app so far, it works for what I use it for. What I mean by that is that I'm not using it to trade skins for CS or anything, I use it to browse community guides and videos, watch my friends stream and message with them. My problem with the app is it's stream function. There is no audio when watching your friend play a game. The is a Steam function in the when the video is playing out of full screen that manages play/pause and sound. Steam automatically puts the video on mute and I cannot unmute it, the function simply doesn't work when I press the button. Its a disappointment when ur trying to watch ur friend fail playing their brand new game. Pls fix this thx
Aging poorly like an abandoned Neopet
by Noworkz on 2018/09/08 21:22
I used to be a big fan of Valve but it’s becoming increasingly harder to rely on as time goes on. I would think that a multibillion-dollar superstar like Valve would be able to invest in making their apps as high-end and as accessible to customers as possible. You’ve been talking about a UI refresh for years but still have little to show for it. It feels like the bare minimum serviceable effort, like a low priority. Valve, you have more than enough clout in the industry to hire some top-tier app developers and UI designers. The easier the app is to access, the easier it is for people to spend money on Steam so yes, this certainly affects your bottom dollar. If I’m wrong and you have an active team dedicated to updating the mobile and desktop apps then what you need to fix is your transparency. As far as we can see, nothing noteworthy has changed in a long time. -J
It does what you need it to do
by Chaseiboy8181 on 2020/09/21 11:16
I works just fine as another bit of security for your account. In fact I love it I know if anyone wants to do anything or sign into my account, it goes through my phone. Now, I’m giving it 4 starts because sometimes it I go to confirmations they page won’t load for awhile. And this is while I’m at home connected to internet. So then I close the app, re open then it normally works. That’s been my only issue and this is really good for keeping your account safe. Personally I recommend attaching an email, and a phone, and changing your pass word every 3~4 months, it’s a slight inconvenience but when its your steam account your talking about, it’s very important
No love for Apple Users.
by MilkdotWhole on 2018/11/26 22:15
Not only does the MacOS client have terrible response times and UI, but it shows that the App Store does in fact have poor applications. Steam has yet to update the interface to “embrace the notch” and we now have 4 smartphones that own the notch in this past year. Two factor auth. Is simply terrible. My college uses two factor, and it’s simply a binary input. No copying numbers in small bursts of time. I understand Apple users don’t normally appeal to Valves customer base, but the reason is the lack of effort to reach to this audience. User experience is vital, and Steam does not provide this whatsoever. If Valve reads this, I suggest looking into modernizing this app. The content you own is incredible, but the way you show it needs work. Take notes from Duo mobile and other interfaces such as the App Store itself.
Why?
by The obvious truth... on 2017/05/17 18:11
I understand the reason for improved security but you shouldn't be punished for having less security… I should be able to sell stuff on the steam market without a phone app. What's worse is you can't comment on others profiles without authentication, yet I can message my steam friends who are the same people I'm trying to comment on. You can't post a community discussion either. There have been moments where I go into a steam games community page to report a bug in their bug report page but can't because of this trash. This is as bad as valves paid mods that failed. Anyone remember that? Valve needs to listen to their community more, they say try do and even say that every game is reviewed to make sure it should be on steam yet bots auto add steam games so their is no quality control and nothing is being fixed. If security is fine, don't fix it.
This app is very buggy and horrible to use on the XS Max
by EvangelosAR on 2019/05/02 03:27
The amount of times it says “chat is offline” is ridiculous. Sometimes I have to type my messages over 2 times for them to even get through. It’s just overall very buggy and they need to put more work into this since mobile authentication is such a big deal for Steam. Please optimize this app for the XS Max so it will look cleaner, and for the love of god please fix all of the chat bugs and make it more enjoyable to use when I’m away from my computer. Not only this, but compared to using the mobile website, clicking on things is noticeably slower on the app vs the mobile website. Especially when trading. There’s definitely a ton of potential on this app and I wish y’all would work on it more!
I really don’t get it...
by Phatboyjawsh on 2018/02/02 17:13
I honestly don’t get why Valve is horrible with their Steam products - such as their mobile app or Steam customer services, etc. People pay good money for things online and sometimes there are issues, yet Steam seems to be the worst when it comes to solving them. It’s as if they have a “better luck next time” policy. Anyways, aside from their horrible customer service, now their app is failing too! It’s been at least half a year now that I’ve encountered the same bug on this app - where it doesn’t show which friends are in game. It’ll simply just say they’re online, away, busy, or offline. They still haven’t fixed it?? I’m sure I’m not the only one getting this issue either. What is the matter with them?? How are they still a company when they seem to be the laziest out there? I don’t get it..
Good but not great
by zantaz66 on 2020/03/05 00:39
This app is good if you want to focus on the community market or workshop aspect of Steam, but other than that it’s severely lacking. I wouldn’t expect it to run games or browse the store, that’s what Steam on the PC is for. But one feature I would like is the ability to change your profile picture from the Steam app itself, right now when you press the “Choose File” button it simply doesn’t function. It would be great if it would open the camera roll of the phone so you can select from there but it doesn’t have the capability to. I would like to see this feature but other than that it’s a decent app.
Extremely Aggrivating Messaging Problem
by Boibobiboviboovibobobojdjsjsjs on 2018/09/03 18:57
The steam app worked perfectly previous to getting my new IPhone 8+ however now when I’m messaging people on steam the chat will frequently go offline when I’m obviously connected to the internet and have no problem loading things. When the error occurs I’ll have to restart the app several times in order to be able to actually send the message to someone. Also sometimes it will appear to be working and I’ll type a long, well thought out message just to click send and see that nothing gets sent and my entire message disappears, leaving me extremely frustrated and often leading to me just dropping the whole message. Please resolve this problem as I do spend a lot of time on the mobile app mostly for the purpose of messaging people.
What
by Lava Lamp Blue on 2017/08/04 03:12
I downloaded this app only so I wouldn't have to wait the 15 days to sell things. After setting up the security thing, the app froze, restarting the app and my phone didn't work, so I reinstalled it. I had to log in again, which I couldn't do because I needed my mobile verification, which I couldn't get because I wasn't logged in yet. So I had to get rid of mobile verification, sign in by verifying my email, then get the mobile verification again, only to have the app keep freezing again. And from other reviews, it turns out I still need to wait 7 days to sell things with the app even if it worked, which it doesn't. Maybe if valve spent as much effort as it does forcing us to get the app in order to sell things on the market as it did making the app usable, it wouldn't have 2.5 stars.
Lot of Bad Reviews Based on User Errror
by Dcast89 on 2017/05/01 00:04
This is a good app that's easy to navigate. Some parts of it involve the need to scroll or zoom more than you should in an app but it's still functional (it's sort of like browsing a mobile version of the Steam website on Safari more than an app). I use the market for trades and buys and mobile authenticator. I don't have any of the problems that other users are writing about but I will admit there's a learning curve for these systems (not iOS specific learning curve, just the Steam ecosystem in general). I would recommend heading to support forums and learning the ropes a bit but I don't see specific issues with this app.
Possible removal of features?
by Matic01 on 2018/10/12 16:27
I don’t use the steam app outside of the Authenticator and browsing for new games. I can get over the buggy nature of the UI as it isn’t what the company was originally making. But I used to be able to install games remotely provided I had a computer logged in. As of the last update(I’m unsure when that was since I payed no mind to it at the time) I’m unable to install games even from my library. Personally this felt like a sorely needed feature since I’m sure just about everyone would rather start the download remotely and come back to their computer later on with it completed and ready to play. Not sure if this was axed completely or is intended to come back later but at least for me I feel this app was gutted.
I LOVE THIS APP!
by JakeRedBlade on 2018/06/03 20:02
All the bad reviews are nonsense, this is a very helpful app and considering it has no ads and no iap it’s very good,everyone out there reading this please note that this app may not be the best due to the fact Valve pays €60 a month to keep this app on app store and they get no profit they are being extremely kind! Btw I have no bugs, I use this app on iPhone 4s, no issues, iPhone 5s, no issues. And the well known pc version I have experienced no bugs altough I’m opted for Steam betas. Valve is paying for nothing, they don’t have to do it, and they are doing it for you guys. So have some respect and give 5 stars
They will not help you once they have your money
by Krisa on 2017/12/17 00:47
I downloaded the app so I could buy a game. I downloaded the game but can’t play it without going through the app. Which would be fine if the app let me in. It keeps telling me my password is wrong, I go through the steps to change it and it still won’t let me in. I can get no online help because you have to log in to ask your question. I’ve left pleading message on the support team on Twitter only to be ignored. I’d say screw it but I paid for my game and want access to it. I feel as though I’ve gone through all my options. I have no doubt no one from the company reads these reviews but maybe I can stop it from happening to someone else. So not worth your time and money for a company that will ignore you the moment they get your money.
Struggle to chat with steam friends
by [AS]_Princess on 2018/09/07 06:07
I have this app mostly to see who is online and to chat about games on steam, however, I have to type and send the same message multiple times in order to be sent. For some reason clicking “send” 1 time is not enough. So I pretty much click send, steam disappears my message without sending it, then J rewrite, click send, and same cycle keeps happening. Also, even though I may be online chatting, every time i open a different app (multitask on the phone) it tells the person i’m chatting that i’m now offline which is pretty annoying.. so every time I go back to the app it says i’m online and when i open another app even though i’m going back and forth in a conversation it says i’m offline.
Useful, but not efficient.
by Hpl123 on 2019/09/19 11:28
This app is useful for checking market, communicating with friends etc but not anything beyond that. Good to see profile, leave comments but things happen very slowly. You have to wait for a while for a page to load, or you can exit and reopen the app for it to load faster. Sometimes a bug occurs where it says you aren't logged in. Overall, I am glad this app exists but I can't say I really recommend it as a good alternative to the computer version of steam. I only use it for steam things when I am not around my computer. Devs, I hope you can fix some of the performance issues on this mobile app and make it much easier to access things like on desktop.
Terrible Experience
by ChristianMedia on 2017/01/30 11:36
Recently I tried to sell some things on the community market. On my computer it has the normal message, log into the mobile authenticator or whatever to confirm the listing. So all day I try to confirm these items and it doesn't work saying to reload again. I decide to reinstall the app thinking it may work now. When prompted to log in, it gives me an option about if I want to disable the app and use email. That would be much easier so I finally do that and after it emails and texts me 2 different codes, it doesn't let me log in to the authenticator/the app. So now I am stuck waiting 15 days to trade and about a week or so for the market holds. I have no idea why it is so complicated to perform simple tasks on steam. I'm quite fed up with all this unnecessary security.
You get a crash! And you get a crash!
by Extinctconcept on 2018/10/02 23:47
Would be nice if this thing didn’t crash every two minutes. The UI is also clunky as all hell want to view images or videos from a game how about a horizontal scroll bar with no arrows that you have to hop you pressed and slid just right without accidentally launching a video that may or may not actually play audio then promptly locking up and crashing again. This thing just needs to be completely scrapped and rebuilt. Viewing steam in your phones web browser is more useful than this app. The only benefit this app has is the mobile Authenticator just to add an extra layer of security to your steam account. And even that is just barely passable at best. Valve you need to go back to the drawing board and figure out how to make a mobile app.
Needs total overhaul
by Jack Seibert on 2019/01/28 05:05
As of this post the Steam iOS app was last updated TWO YEARS AGO. The desktop client has undergone several major revisions and desktop chat was completely overhauled, bringing in much-needed modern features to the world’s biggest gaming platform. Where are my QoL changes on mobile? It’s little more than a front end for the store and an Authenticator. URLs in chat are not even hyperlinked, I have to copy and paste them into a real browser. I have “new item” notifications that I can’t clear and I have to sign in every time I open the app, even if I am actively receiving notifications from it. This is disgraceful. The only reason this is getting two stars is because it’s at least not actively broken.
Pointless app
by DSC_Seatac on 2017/12/08 18:46
You can view your cart but not your wishlist. Who on earth would keep anything in their cart? You can add things to your wishlist but then can’t view it. Does everything on the planet have to be another social media platform? I just want to play games. Maybe I’m old. I just wanted to be able to browse my wishlist and decide what to buy next. This is a half-assed attempt at a mobile version of Steam, just to be able to say “we did it.” They obviously didn't put any effort into it and they haven’t even updated it in over a year. This app has well earned its majority of one-star reviews.
