I have been waiting for this anouncment for a LONG time. Today Steam introduced their mobile app for iOS and Android. With the app you can chat with your steam friends and buy steam games. That means no missing out on sales because your away from your PC. We should be taking a closer look at the app here soon to see what else its capable of doing, stay tuned!

 

It should also be noted this is still in beta. The only way to sign up is to download and try to sign in. Some people will get to try it right away, others will have to wait a little longer

You might call him obsessed or just a hardcore geek. Wes's obsession with gaming hardware and gadgets isn't anything new, he could be found taking things apart even as a child. When not poking around in PC's he can be found playing League of Legends, Awesomenauts, or Civilization 5 or watching a wide variety of TV shows and Movies. A car guy at heart, the same things that draw him into tweaking cars apply when building good looking fast computers. If you are interested in writing for Wes here at LanOC you can reach out to him directly using our contact form.

just got home and had a steam mobile invite on my screen, still can't log in though. Looks like I will have one invite to give out also. I'm going to wait to see who got in on the first round of invites before I send it out

You can play Steam games using the Splashtop app. Then again, you have to have your computer on and running the game. All it really is doing is streaming the game into your phone/tablet.

Onlive will actually let you buy games that work outta the game on phones/tablets. Defense Grid works but it's still better on PC.

Either one of those would get the job done.

I know that Splashtop works cause I bought it and have used it in the past. At the Nvidia press conference at CES they were also using it.

Those who wish to join the beta just need to download the Steam app (free of charge) and log in to their Steam account via the mobile app to express interest in the beta. Gamers will be added to the Closed Beta as the service ramps up.

This is going to be a HUGE problem for me. Now I can buy games on the go, my wallet just went and jumped in the toilet, need to go fish it out.

Holding the volume down and the power button on ICS captures a screenshot. It's baked into ICS now.
