My primary use-case for Steam Mobile is likely to be using it as a chat client, so the deficiencies of the IM UI compared to, say, the iOS built-in Messages app are really jarring.

1) When a message is sent, the keyboard immediately retracts, so it's hard to actually have a conversation.
2) When the keyboard comes up, the chat log doesn't scroll down to show the most recent messages, so you have to scroll yourself.
3) There don't appear to be push notifications for messages. I haven't tested this extensively and I read something about installing the beta PC client, so I may be wrong.

This is all about the iOS version, I dunno if any of these are issues or even exist on Android.
