Pin Steam

Pin your Steam games and friends to the Start Menu with beautiful tiles. Live tiles show you which of your friends are playing which games. You can also pin friends directly to the start screen and follow their online status. To use Live Tiles, this app requires you to have a Steam account and to have setup a Custom URL in your steam profile. It also requires Steam to be installed on your device to launch games. (NOTE: Steam is not available for Windows RT yet!) Neither this app or it's creator is affiliated with Valve Software in any way.

I really love how well pin steam works, that is, WHEN it works. Don't get me wrong, it is a great app, but it has this tendency to crash that is a bit irritating. Even though it sometimes can take a couple tries to get a shortcut made, it is well worth it with the slick, clean user interface, and the fast speed at which the shortcuts function. It is surprising how satisfying having a clean desktop can be, and this app certainly helps get that job done well.

Small size icons show only as black squares in Creators Update

This is a great app! To be able to pin your Steam games to the Start is awesome! Now if only there was an app for Origin games to be able to be pinned to Start.

I love the idea, and it works fine. One improvement would be to only have the friend icons display which game they are in whenever the mouse is hovered over them. I think that the transition should stay the same, and there should be no delay. Also, it seems when a friend is playing a game the tile will take on a slightly darker tone. I like the idea there, but instead of being darker it should only display who is in-game when hovered over with the mouse. The best way would be to make these optional, but you can decide what you are going to do. One more thing, when you select a friend tile, there is a short interval in which it opens the app. This is no problem, but I think it would be smoother if this was not seen. Overall, I love the app. Great work.

Desperately needs an update for Windows 10.

It helps to spice up your Start.

Pinning works great and all, but the problem is that if you try to resize the tiles (they are stuck in medium mode) or move them, they disappear and shade the start menu like things are being moved, even though they are not. Does not work very well...

Pins them all! Wish there was an automatic icon for large icons, but thats okay, everything else functions correctly.

The app seems to work pretty nice and the tiles look good too. I don't know if it is more convenient than a shortcut on the desktop, but if you like keeping your desktop clean and you play games on steam this is the game for you.
