Ratings and Reviews
amazing but just needs 2 things
Steam link is just absolutely great and i love it so much!! im able to play The Forest and Friday The 13th and its just so amazing but theres just one problem. i am unable to shift/Run when i play with my buttons on screen so it would be great if there was a button or maybe having to double tap and hold the joystick and is it possible for us to be able to play with our laptop offline and maybe being really really really far apart from our laptop because something like that would be really helpful when trying to play from another location on your phone instead of having to play while your at home 🏡 and okay now this will be the last thing i promise haha but um is there any possible way that the buttons on the controller can be customized in their size because if i have a small phone i wanna make sure i can see a lot of the screen and sometimes some buttons just cover most of the screen so if you guys could cover these things it would be amazing. Thank you so much for your time and you guys are doing amazing so keep at it
Lacks Native Support/ Touch Screen
For me the only controllers I own are some Xbox controllers. The problem is the lack of support for touch screen. I used to play a lot of touch screen games when I was younger. Now that I’m older; I’m fine playing them casually in another room. However, when trying to play games I found myself having no easy native controls. With me having to mingle with each game. This app works perfectly. If you have good internet and a good computer. The result is very visually appeasing with close to no lag. To me steam should have built some more features. Like remote using of the PC. Like being able to use mouse and keyboard mode on the computer with steam minimized. You are able to do this as I clicked out of the game and had remote access of the PC. Additionally PC remote controls like turn on from sleep or turn off. I’m aware that other programs have these capabilities; Integration of these services with steam link would be a very impressive way to get people using the app. Overall very satisfied. Would recommend to a friend.
Witcher 3 on my iPad, GREAT
Since I built my computer in ‘16 I’ve tried all the streaming services, moonlight, steam box, Mira, etc... there’s a lot of them and this is the first time that I was able to get Witcher 3 to look comparable to sitting at the desk in front of the computer, but it’s also the first time that after a few minutes I FORGOT that i was streaming, and just enjoyed the game. That says more than anything. I have kids so I have to play, when i can, where I can and the desk in my office is just not usually an option, so for me, this is great. My only negative comment is nothing to do with steam, but with Mfi controllers not having thumbstick click buttons, there is a workaround but I wish apple would force manufacturers to require this (or maybe not forbid it, whatever the case is). Workaround works fine, and you can always map a control that is rarely used to the thumbstick.
