Anybody who is a fan of of PC gaming will be familiar with Steam. Steam is a great piece of software where you can purchase games, stream titles from a remote location to your desktop and also communicate with friends. A new mobile version has been launched for the Samsung Galaxy S3 device so we take a look at it in a little more detail.
The excellent Steam Mobile application for the Samsung Galaxy S3 has been developed by Steam and it is a perfect accessory for users of this device who are into their PC games. This mobile software boasts many of the features that are present on the main version meaning you can perform most tasks while on the move and not be required to be sitting in front of your PC. One of the attractions of this app is that it boasts a massive collection of games that can be browsed and purchased using your device. Although these do not download directly to the handset they are placed in a queue so the transfer begins the next time you switch on your home PC. One or two features are missing from this mobile version. There is no allocation of gaming space for the user and quite understandably there is no option to stream titles from your PC to the S3. Apart from these a host of options are available once you have set up an account, a process which only takes a couple of minutes.
The Steam Mobile Application for the Samsung Galaxy S3 boasts four mains sections that users can interact with. Perhaps the main area is the community section which is where users can keep in touch with other friends using the service. Chat facilities are enabled and you can also view friends progress on games and also check out what they have been playing recently. The Newsfeed area of the software is where you can read up on the latest gaming news including the newest release and forthcoming titles. This is customised to your own preferences so the majority of stories relate to the type of games that you like to play. Asides from the Settings options the other main area of Steam is the Catalogue section which we discussed earlier. A massive selection of titles are available and a useful search option makes it quick and easy to find the exact game that you are looking for.
Steam Mobile is a useful and well designed app for the Samsung Galaxy S3 that will appeal to PC gaming fans everywhere. The software offers many of the functions boasted on the PC version and helps you to interact with friends and check out the newest games available.
