Unofficial Steam for Android app released into Android Market

Many PC gamers (including this writer) use the popular Steam game distribution program to buy games, as it offers discounts often and the newest games. A fairly new development team for Android has gone ahead and released a Steam for Android app, which appears to be a companion app, not something approved by the Steam makers known as Valve. It isn’t useless, as it offers features that any avid Steam user should like on the go.

Of the features, users can check what there friends are doing, check out the daily deals and much more. All of this is in an app made using the Android 4.0 SDK, so it should look great on any Android phone. It may not offer all the features that could be possible, but should supplement any PC gamer. Check out the whole app description below, and hit the Android Market source link if you wish to download it now. As always, be sure to let us know what you think in the comments below!
