Making an app is hard, but getting it noticed on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store can be an even more difficult task. Optimizing your metadata is the biggest hurdle to getting noticed and finding users. There are many "tips and tricks" articles out there that promise to help, but very few talk about what to avoid.

Download Steam Link beta and start playing your PC games on an Android device

Download Steam Link beta and start playing your PC games on an Android device

7 days ago   |   By Phone Arena

Valve announced last week it will soon allow Android and iOS users to play their library of PC games on their mobile devices. Obviously, we're talking about streaming your games from the PC/Mac to a smartphone, not actually running them from the Android or iOS device.
That can be achieved starting today by download the Steam Link beta app, which is now available for free via Google Play Store. If you're an iPhone user, you'll have to wait a while longer for the app to arrive in the App Store.
But how exactly does this work and how can you play your PC games from your couch on a smaller ...

With Steam Link app, your smartphone can be an imperfect gaming monitor

Enlarge / A computer, a controller, streaming: Panama!
Last week, Valve announced it would be bringing Steam's long-standing in-home streaming functions to mobile platforms, letting users play games running on a PC via a tablet, mobile phone, or Apple TV on the same network. We got a chance to test out a beta version of that new mobile Steam Link app this week, ahead of today's launch on Android 5.0+ devices and an iOS launch that has been delayed "pending further review from Apple." We found that, on mobile, in-home Steam streaming is still a passable solution for playing away from your...

TouchArcade Goes Hands-On With Valve's Steam Link App: 'This is the Killer App for iOS Devices'

7 days ago   |   By Mac Rumors

Next week, Valve is launching a "Steam Link" app for iOS and tvOS , allowing users in the Apple ecosystem to play Steam games streamed from a host Mac/PC (using either a 5GHz network or a wired Ethernet connection) onto an iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV. In advance of the app's launch, our sister site TouchArcade got the chance to go hands-on with Steam Link and came away entirely impressed by the quality of gaming that can come out of Valve's app.
TouchArcade reports that Steam Link works so well that it "feels like there's some kind of actual wizardry powering it all," and once it's set up...

'Steam Link' App Hands-On Preview - The iOS and Apple TV Killer App Doesn't Even Play Games from Apple's Ecosystem

'Steam Link' App Hands-On Preview - The iOS and Apple TV Killer App Doesn't Even Play Games from Apple's Ecosystem

7 days ago   |   By Touch Arcade

Earlier this month we got news that Valve had plans to bring a Steam Link app to the Apple TV and iOS devices. Released back in November of 2015, Steam Link is a hardware device that allows you to stream games from your PC to your TV, played via the Steam Controller. Unsurprisingly, like most things Valve does, the Steam Link works pretty well. The problem is it's another set top box to buy, which (at least amongst my circle of gamer friends) led to fewer people than I would have expected actually picking one up because in this day and age between Apple TVs, Amazon Fire devices, Google...
