What's New in Version 1.5.6
Fixed occasional crash when logging out and restarting the app.
The one thing that it really lacks that I believe and I'm sure I'm not the only one, but it would be amazing and time saving to be able accept or make Trades/Offers. It would make perfect sense to do this and yes i do understand that the possible reason for this is for profile security. Adding this small yet very useful detail would make this app 200% more useful than over. I didn't really want to into depth with being able to use the community market since it would be about the same reasons. But for now focusing on Trades/Offers would be outstanding.
This app is really good for keeping in contact with friends when you are on the move. I've have many times where a friend would want to play and I would get the message on my phone, so I was instantly able to reply and get online via computer.
Nice app, still a bit buggy.
After the update I was really hoping the issue with the chat box not expanding when a message exceeds one line - the way it would in messages on any phone - would be fixed. EXTREMELY inconvenient to have to scroll back in a long message just to see what you wrote before sending it. Actually kind of infuriating.
Also, it looks like devs finally optimized the app for larger screens on iPhone 6/Plus phones since text is smaller overall - which is nice to see more messages on one page. But now the gray background does not extend to the bottom of the screen. Now there is a black bar beneath it..mildly annoying but doesn't look very pro.
I rely this app on a daily basis, often as a substitute for iMessage/SMS texting some friends. When I use it I like it to work smoothly and reliably. These things make the app seem a bit underdeveloped/undertested/unpolished before updates go live. Especially seeing as it doesn't get updated as often as others.
I really hope these items are seen and fixed in the next one! Thanks for this app - I love being able to access my account and communicate when I'm away from my PC. Hoping the rest of bugs are worked out soon.
It should be expected that the Steam app would have limited features. While I don't understand not having group chat or not letting you change your avatar, I can let that stuff slide. What I can't let slide is the way the app puts you offline if you're doing ANYTHING else other than using the app itself. This includes having your phone closed. Because of this, it's impossible to get notifications of new messages. The app becomes almost useless in it's basic functionalities. Plus, links do not hyperlink in chat forcing you to copy and paste them in an external source rather than just clicking them. The app often lags with a hefty amount of messages. This is the bottom of the barrel when it comes to Steam apps. Do not expect to be satisfied with this download.
