What's New in Version 1.4.1
Fix for layout issues on devices running iOS4 and iOS5
Mobile Update Major Bug
Although I was pleased to see what the new update introduced, when I found out that chatting with friends was broken (details at end of review), I became extremely annoyed and found talking extraordinarily irritating, so much that not only was the update not worth it but that I've been using other means to chat with friends at quite the inconvenience. Please fix this ASAP. FYI I'm using a rather old iPod (Gen 2), running iOS 5 I believe, so it may be outdated....
The problem in the chat is that everything is shifted up a little bit, meaning buttons at top are difficult to hit. More importantly however is that when typing, it is impossible to see what is being typed. Also, the only way to view messages sent by you or whom you are chatting with is to tap out of typing mode. Basically it's a graphic design bug, but a major one.
Also a potential thought for the next update: Support Group Chats?
And yes this was not fixed with v1.4.1
Used to work great
When I'm off wifi (using phone's data connection), the chat freaks out and goes offline - today it tried to "refresh" for two and a half hours. If you hit the log out button while it's doing this, instead of taking you back to the log-in page like it used to, it takes you to a blank page that also keeps trying to refresh - and eventually times out. The app works fine when on wifi, but not on cell data??? I've checked and double checked, I have cell data for Steam turned on....
This app is pretty much USELESS now...
I LOVE Steam But...
I LOVE Steam and Valve and a lot of the people incorporated with it. The app works great. I use it to message people because that's really all you can do on this app. But the second picture in the slide show. No one has ever told me, "Let me finish my homework..." XD but otherwise no issues
