Steam's finally gotten around to releasing a mobile app for both iOS and Android devices.

Feel free to download... there's only one catch. The mobile version's still in closed beta. However, if you download the app and sign in, Valve notes your attempt to login and there's a good chance you'll be sent a closed beta invite.

The great thing about the Steam mobile app is that you'll be able to chat with your friends on Steam and buy products off of Steam via your mobile device... a thing we've been itching for for a long time.

I suspect that Valve has had this in the works and has been waiting to launch this for a while. Since Origin is now going to add more publishers and eventually Origin support on mobile devices, they're probably doing this now to compete.

Links for anyone that may be interested!

Only took me like 2-3 days after I tried logging in on my Android Phone. Then earlier today, I had a new item in my Steam inventory, which said that I could now log in to the mobile app. Pretty simple really Smiley

I got into the beta too, like Killjoy said earlier, the chat is pretty nice. Only complaint is the way that Friends is the default page, it always brings you back to it instead of the sidebar.
