Not Working As Advertised

While another user has commented on there being another, free, application already on the market, Pin Steam brings the ability to use custom images instead of the ones automatically provided. However, after purchasing Pin Steam, I would expect the application to do as advertised and allow me to open the game. It does not. Therefore, I'm giving it a 1/5. EDIT: After looking again, I'm now seeing it's free. In other words, anybody who purchased this app was ripped off of their money since it didn't work. Awesome.

Keeps telling me to buy the app again

Win 10 user here. I paid for the app. Trying to launch a game crashed my system. Now every time I try to launch a game from a tile the app tells me I haven't paid. Love the tiles that it makes but if it won't launch the games I want a refund. Also, is there a way to set the tile to launch the game in Steam Big Picture mode? Thanks!

Cannot do All Features correctly

So you are supposed to be able to make your own custom tiles. However you cannot. As soon as you try to make your own the app crashes. this may not be expensive but I expect something I pay for to work.

Incompatible with Windows 10

It worked pretty well on 8 and 8.1 but does not work on Windows 10. Please update this soon.

This app is made by a scumbag

Posts it with a "permanent free trial" to entice downloads, but when you try to open a pined game it opens the Pin Steam app instead saying you have to buy it to ACTUALLY use the app. Rating one star because zero is not an option.

Good start

I love the fact you can change the images for different tile sizes, but there needs to be more flexibility in zooming and cropping for smaller images. (Meaning more that 80% & 100% in both directions)

Not a perfect application

This is in no regards the best app to use to pin steam games. While it does perform its function of allowing you to place steam games on the start menu with any of the 4 different sizes (Large, Wide, Medium, Small), the customization of how the tiles will look is limited. It allows you to crop the image placed with only 2 fixed sizes, which is a problem as the photos you'll have will be much larger. However, if you're just looking to pin steam games in a wide view format, then this is good for you.

Good Product w/ Broken Custom Tile Search

I've been using this product for over a year now and it does everything I hoped it would. The custom tile feature is great and allows me to categorize my library in a visually appealing way by having "small, medium, large, and huge" tile sizes. The feature provided a default large tile size and provided automatic search results for making custom images for the other tile sizes. Unfortunately the automatic search feature was broken during the latest update and has not been fixed since. You can still search for them yourself, save them, and load them into the custom tile from your own files but this method is clunk and a lot of trial and error when compared to how it used to be. I'd still recommend it for anyone who wants to customize their library on their start screen, but I won't give it 5 stars until it rebuilds its best feature.

Best Steam Pin App in the Store!

Great features including the ability to set wide and small tiles images separately, optional text display and ability to select custom images. Windows 8 + Steam makes this a must-have for me.

Good, but needs some work

For some reason, I can't update tiles. Trying to update a tile causing the app to crash. Other than that, it works pretty good. I use this app with Simple Launcher to make tiles for non-steam programs. It would be cool if I could set a tile to not open a new instance of a program that's already open.
