I have to say really it's about time, I was expecting something like this to be out for a few years now (at least for the iPhone). I'm looking forward to this as there are a few friends of mine whom are only reachable by steam chat

I just tried, it asked me my password and also sent me a security code on my email to add if I want to log in.
I'd say it's one of the most secure apps I tested on Android. Security code is a feature normally MMOs use. I have to get home before logging in completely though; I need to set my "beta participation" on.

I downloaded the official app for android and it asks for user name and pass.

Are you sure you didn't download a "friend viewer" knock off app from a random publisher enaberif? Follow the links on steam's site to the Android market and download it.

I believe from your PC steam profile you have to enable beta participations.

I selected "Beta Update" but that did nothing. Only other choice is "Skyrim Beta" but I don't own Skyrim.
