App details

Version notes

Release 6! * Windows 8.1 tile size support * Search is fixed in 8.1 (new 8.1 style search box) * SQUARE TILES - our most requested feature. When you click on a game, you also select which portion of the banner to crop for your square tiles * Ads are back - we're experimenting with ads again. Anyone who has or will make a donation to steam tile (of any amount) will receive a cheat code that removes ads forever Release 5: * Steam Tile is now ad-free and donation-supported. Donations are entirely voluntary. Steam Tile will always be free to download. Release 4: * Steam Tile is more likely to recover from Steam's server's being flaky - this issue caused many people to simply see the login screen refresh over and over * Steam Tile is now ad-supported Release 3: * Added FAQ to settings charm to help users with common queries * Improved the reliability of the login phase (better error messages) * Recently-bought games should show up very quickly (and you can force a refresh if they don't)

Slight annoyances, but still recommended

As other have mentioned, this does have its own loading screen, but it isn't that bad if you're online and signed in. The tiles don't always look great on non-wide settings, and wide will only switch to the achievements if you don't turn live tiles off. Despite all of the issues, I still personally like this as a free utility. If you don't mind paying $1, WinTileR is better. It allows more tile customization and works with non-Steam apps.

great app but 1 HUGE issue

ok first off I love this app, it allows me to put steam games and programs in my start menu with custom icons. anyways I paid for the full version of this app and there is a donation button and a ad at the top of the window, i paid for this app and i do not want a ad.

Helpful, but annoyances

The icons on the start screen look great and make it easy to get to the games. Having to open the app and a loading window every time is cumbersome and am at the point I am back to opening Steam instead of using this.

windows pop up

Whenever I click a tile to enter the game, there will be Steam Tile window opening up as well... which is quite annoying.

This could be great, but...It's not.

For now I'm using a paid app called WinTileR, because this app, while working, is too buggy. WinTileR just shows an image but I don't get dialogs and such when clicking on the tile. Steam tile works and functions great if, and only if the tile size is set to Small, Medium or Large, however the images are messed up with those settings. i.e. I'd never use those settings as such. Now, the Wide setting looks the best, but what happens if the game has achievements? The tile gets stuck on the Achievement while in Wide mode. Meaning you'll never see the graphics end of the Tile. This may or may not be an issue with this program, but without a method of tweaking the display it kills the use of Steam Tile for me. *As and added note, a method of removing the handshake should be implemented, I don't like seeing large splash screens, nor being given a confirmation to load a program. It is a nice app idea.

Even when I have my steam open and everything, the Steam Tile window pops up whenever I click the tiles for my games. Great concept, but why does the program open whenever I click a tile? Have the program run in the background so the game can open without the prompt and without the window opening.

I would like it to show the picture more instead of the information. Also its a bit slow when opening a game.
