Valve has released a mobile version of their popular digital delivery service Steam, today, on iOS and Android powered devices. Steam for mobile devices will let users connect with their friends to see what they're playing, browse the Steam store and make purchases to be played later on your computer and even take chat on the road with your friends.
"The Steam app comes from many direct requests from our customers," says Gabe Newell, co-founder and president of Valve. "Seeing which of your friends are online and playing a game, sending quick messages, looking at screenshots for an upcoming game, or catching a sale - these are all features customers have requested. Mobile is changing way people interact, play games and consume media, and the Steam app is part of our commitment to meet customer demands and expand the service functionality of Steam to make it richer and more accessible for everyone."
Steam for mobile devices is currently in beta, just download the free application from your mobile device's market and log in to your Steam account. Beta testers will be continually added as the beta progresses. For more information, you can check out http://store.steampowered.com/mobile.
