Steam's remote install feature
 
Do you guys think this is actually usefull? When they came out with the android/iOS apps, I thought they could be spending time on other things like making games, but I suppose this completes the app users ability to have those games ready when they get home.

works from the browser as well. I dunno I can see it being a bit useful if I'm sitting at school/work one day and buy a game in a sale and then have it ready and waiting for me when I get home.... but really its just another feature and I wont complain.

I always thought something like this would be cool, and thanks for pointing that out, I had no idea we could do that with steam. Good find. :clap:

Pretty cool I guess... I don't think I've ever bought a game when I wasn't on my gaming pc though. I suppose its nice for those impulse buys some people make :p

I mean, there isn't really a "downside" to this, so it's just a welcome addition for the few people who might use it. Doesn't impact everyone else.

This is pretty cool... I always just RDC into my home computer to buy/download stuff, but this is a much more elegant solution.
