    Apple does not seem to be fond of the Steam Link app on the App Store, all due to a business conflict. With the app it is possible to stream PC games to smartphones and tablets....

    Hhhmmm lately I have been wondering about changing back to Android, as on the Apple side they are upsetting their clients more and more and doesn’t seem to care about them for that matter.

    Valve is very fond of banning software from their Steam store, so it's only right they will be offered their own bitter medicine every now and then.

    I like how this article is assuming that anyone at all on this site is even using an apple phone. Anyone who knows anything about hardware would never even think of touching one of these especially at those prices. You could get a much higher spec'd android phone for a lot less and have a lot more freedom as well.

    It could be fun to play civilization on my iPhone, while being away from home.
    At least that how it works I guess.

    I don't give a damn about games on app store, but it could be fun to use steam link to play games via my PC.

    Incorrect - Anyone who values privacy will go iOS.

    Not sure that's entirely accurate with a closed source iOS vs open source android.

    I care :S I have both an android tablet and an ios phone cause i make mobile stuff.
    @insp1re2600 well, that thing with the facebook messenger was only an issue with android cause ios wouldn't let it send everything back.
    Seriously though, sometimes i have issues with google when i need to ask something from support.
    "We don't offer support for 3rd party plugins."
    "The file's header says - Copyright Google."
    "Oh! Someone from the community will know for sure."

    Oh well, unfortunately it only works on LAN. I kinda wished I could run games on my PC with iPhone when away from home.

    Won't argue with that. I only have facebook to find events and stuff, and check it every couple of days. I used to have people telling me "why don't you talk on facebook?" And i'm like dude you have my phone number and know where i live...
