Gamers who use the Steam network will be interested to learn that a new unofficial Steam application has this week arrived in the Android Market and is now available to download.
Even though the Android app is not officially created by Steam or Valve. It provides gamers with plenty of features to keep them busy and up to date whilst away from their computers. The only draw back to it not being official is that you can’t actually purchase games trough it, but thats a small price to pay for such a featured Android app, with no adverts to spoil the fun.
Features included with the new Steam Android application include: tabs for Summary, Friends, Groups, Games, Specials and Favourites. Together with :
– Smooth user interface: swipe left/right or simply click on the desired tab. The tabs are linked circularly, meaning that there is no first or last tab, so there is no need to go all the way back!
– Bandwidth friendly: the only information downloaded is the one on the opened tab, the rest of the tabs remain asleep until you open them.
– Battery friendly: no background tasks or services that consume your phone’s battery. Once the app is closed, it is closed for good.
– Compatibility: works (or SHOULD work, please email me with any bugs you find) with any phone running Android 1.6 to Android 4.0.
– Install to SD Card: for phones with Android 2.2 (Froyo) or later.
Download it now from the Android Market for free.
