What's New in Version 2.0.10
Fixed an issue where the app would get stuck at a login screen with no Steam Guard code after resuming from the background.
Terrible Customer Experience
Basically, all I wanted to do was to sell the useless cards that have accumulated in my Steam inventory. So, I pick an item I want to sell, click about four buttons to confirm that I want to sell it, and then have to log in to my email to confirm that I want to sell some card for 5 cents. Job done, right? Well, no. Now the 5 cent card is on hold, and to "remove the need for placing a market item on hold," Steam tells me I should use the Mobile Authenticator. What's that? Well, it's the mobile app. So, I download the app, authenticate IT through my email, search online for where the "Mobile Authenticator" is in the app (the name in the app is "Steam Guard," not "Mobile Authenticator") and the items are STILL on hold. Apparently I have to keep this app on my phone for 7 days before I have the privilege of selling a useless 5 cent card. No thanks. I am done with this. Maybe just let me sell this useless junk in the Steam program on my computer? I have no need for a Steam app taking up space on my phone. I'm going to think twice before buying anything on Steam thanks to this customer service experience.
Great app, except...
The mobile steam app is good overall, but there are two shortcomings I couldn't overlook. First, the menu layout is dysfunctional at best. You can do most things you'd expect to be able to do through steam, but trying to find specific settings or even add a friend requires going through two or sometimes three different menu items before you find what you are looking for.
My second grievance is that you can't watch any video previews for games in the app. I'm sure this is a large technical obstacle, but from what I understand, iPhone users have been having this problem for quite some time. Either the videos need to be modified so they can play, or they should just be removed from the mobile version of steam. There is no point in having meaningless video thumbnails cluttering the game's overview, let alone being the first thing you see.
If these issues can be addressed, I would be more than happy to alter my review.
Mobile Authenticator for a Reason
For all of the people complaining about how you need to download the mobile authenticator, heres why: hacking. If your account were to get hijacked by a hacker, would you want all of your precious CSGO skins to be stolen? No. With the email authenticator, the hackers can steal your skins and verify it, as they only need to go onto chrome or yandex to long into your email and confirm everything. Would you truly want the skins which caused you to have stage 4 of skin insanity to disappear from you? No. Stop complaining and just get the thing. Its even faster than email because you only have to click two buttons, but on email you have to wait, and wait longer, and still wait, and then finally the email pops up. And then it glitches. Just get it.
