Yep, loaded it up today, a few hours ago and was able to log in. Even sent a message to a buddy of mine whose only ever on steam and it worked. Thanks Valve, well overdue app that doesn't seem like it was half-assed thrown together

1) this app is sooooo long overdue...

2) Yeah, the interface is not the best and navigating could use some improvements.

3) I'm so freaking ecstatic that I can finally use steam chat over my phone! :D I hate not being able to chat with steam friends when I don't have access to my computer.

4) Oh yeah, it has some other decent features too.

To talk to friends who only seem to ever log onto steam and never any other sort of chat medium.

Well, I have to say that for me 90% of the mobile app is still about the steam chat for me. So I'm less than impressed with the implementation now that I've used it more. They don't make it front and center to have conversations and manage your current conversations :( I also don't like how the chat button is a small area but the rest of their name is their profile link... the picture should be profile link and the rest chat link.
