Works perfectly

I wish steam icons were square instead of 16:9 so the live tiles looked a little nicer, but that is ultimately the fault of Microsoft/Valve (depending on your perspective) and Element26 have done a fine job.

Pretty good

I'd be happier if the game launched directly. The game tile launches the app which then launches the game. The tiles look much better than the shortcuts I would manually put.

A fairly well done app for pinning your Steam games to your Start screen. The only problem is that the tiles only look correct in the wide size. Any other size and the game logo gets cropped. Not sure if this can be fixed though,

It's okay...for what it's meant to do.

I was hoping for something a little more while downloading this app, but there are a few downsides that really threw off my desire to keep it. One thing I must point out is that the app requires you to open it to view any of the Steam game tiles you created. Another thing? Whenever I click on a tile I created, it brings me to Big Picture mode within Steam instead of starting the actual game. The reason for this is because I am unable to correctly set any of my game's file paths using Steam Tile(the app). One feature I would like to see implemented is a function that allows pinning game tiles to the start menu in Windows 10 and Windows 8. In my personal opinion, having to start the Steam Tile app just to access my games is sort of...let's just say I'm not fond of it. Overall, it does what it says it will do on some level. I currently give a 2/5 rating for this app. Wouldn't necessarily recommend to anyone.

Needs More Work

Needs to have a setting that stops the app from re-opening when starting a game. It also needs some updated pictures on how to setup/find your Steam ID for those who are unfamiliar with the process. Otherwise it's great. I'll change my rating if it gets updated.

It could use more options

I like having a nice metro-style tile to put in my Windows 10 Start Menu. That's really the big sell of this app, but I don't like how it stays open after the game launches and I don't like having just one size of tile. I'd like to be able to make a wide live tile out of the banner shown in Steam Tile, where the tile flips and shows your achievements and such. In fact, I'd pay a few bucks for that utility.

Almost There

I love this app, except for the fact that square tiles look terrible. I wish there was a way to add custom tiles to it so that square tiles look better.

can't find profile

Pictures in the app do not show an updated steam look and I am unable to find the profile ID that it wants. I hope this gets addressed because I want to use this app

Works great in Windows 10!

As stated above it works with windows 10 and it is pretty cool to see your steam games lined up beautifully. Wish there were more steam game tiles options available, but nonetheless an awesome app!
