Hmm, my payment option saved on Steam is PayPal, maybe this is why I was able to use it.

Thumbs up

I've wanted mobile, steam chat functionality for some time. This actually works great on a Blackberry Playbook (Android version of the app). Look forward to testing it on a Galaxy S2, later.

Thanks Valve!

You got it wrong, this year they moved to iPhones.



I am pretty sure Windows Phone 7 will get it too very soon, its just getting a different UI (Metro style).

How do I access the settings? I'm on a iPod Touch and when I open the left menu and scroll to the bottom I can see settings, but i can't get it to stay on the screen long enough to tap it. It happens in portrait and landscape mode.

I would be nice if we could change our status to " On Mobile" or something similar, other than just being seen as "Online" so that people aren't trying to send game invites.

I think that's a great idea. Just tested to make sure, and a bud says my name looks normal to him (no indication I'm on a mobile device).

That's weird: just after sending my gift for Online Beta to a friend I could see him as "Online (Mobile)", and I confirmed it as I chated with him to ask what did he think about the app

I have two accounts and I can see my other account as "Online" just like all the other accounts. I see no indication that it is mobile.

Nope, though I may just be missing a setting. I'm also running it on an unsupported platform, which could cause unforeseen consequences.

I have been using the app for a couple days now and I'm really enjoying it. I especially enjoy the easy access to several news sites-- really convenient.

This app is the best thing to ever happen it's so awesome and run's soo smooth and easy to navigate. Well it's time for those who don't own a android or iphone to upgrade to a smartphone as they are not too expensive. ^_^

If your friend is using the new beta for the desktop Steam client then they will in fact see that you are online via mobile. If they are using an older version of the desktop client then they only see you as online since it is unaware of mobile users.

Will the mobile app allow for persistent connections? I go offline as soon as my phone goes into standby.
