Why should Windows users have all the fun? That’s the question being asked on Thursday by the folks at GameHouse, who have just launched the first all-you-can-play casual game subscription service for both Mac and PC users.
Sure, Steam's new iPhone app is still a closed beta product, but you didn't think that'd stop us from giving you a taste, did you? After using the app to spend a few quality hours chatting, reading, surfing Steam's extensive catalog for bargains, and (of course) buying a few new games, we took a break for just long enough to put together this comprehensive gallery showcasing the application's key features.
After you've taken a closer look at what the app has to offer, we're almost certain that you'll agree that for gamers, the arrival of the Steam app is long overdue and has been well worth the wait.
As developers continue to push the boundaries of what’s possible on the iOS platform, we can’t help but feel sorry for the competition -- especially when companies like Madfinger Games are pushing out mobile games which set new standards for graphics, such as this week’s release of Shadowgun.

We’d like to tear you away from the latest rumors and scuttlebutt surrounding the next iteration of the iPhone for just a moment in order to bring you an important public service announcement: Companies other than Apple are currently busy preparing their own next generation devices too. It’s a shocking, we know, but we swear it’s the truth. Take Nintendo, for example. Word has it that they’re in the middle of prototyping their next generation console gaming system.
