Apple denies Steam Link app from the iOS Store

Apple denies Steam Link app from the iOS Store description



Valve has recently released the Steam Link app. It allows you to stream games from your desktop to your mobile device (only Android now), considering that your PC and your phone are on the same 5GHz network. This would take toilet gaming to the next level.

Anyways, the app originally was approved, however, it quickly got taken down, because it conflicted with Apple's "business interests". Right....

Hey, remember to like us on Facebook

Obviously, Valve is disappointed, since making an app like this definitely is not easy. Why exactly Apple turned down the app is not known. It could be that Apple simply does not want you to play games on your iDevice that have not been bought directly through the Apple store. 

Valve said...

"On Monday, May 7th, Apple approved the Steam Link app for release. On Weds, May 9th, Valve released news of the app. The following morning, Apple revoked its approval citing business conflicts with app guidelines that had allegedly not been realized by the original review team. Ultimately, that appeal was denied leaving the Steam Link app for iOS blocked from release. The team here spent many hours on this project and the approval process, so we’re clearly disappointed. But we hope Apple will reconsider in the future."

Let's all just hope that Apple will change their mind.
