    Has anyone else bought Apparatus HD? It lets you access Steam from your iPad. For a buck, it's pretty useful.

    I've been looking for a steam app for quite a while, and as anyone else who's been looking knows, there aren't many available, let alone really nice looking ones like this. I figured I'd pass along the find for anyone else who might be interested.

    All it does is take you to the Steam website. Something you can already do for free in Safari.

    Maybe. But it saves a good amount of time, so it's worth it for me.

    Because I don't want ten ugly bookmarks on my homescreen to get the same functionality. It's a buck. I spend more on a cup of coffee or tea on any given day. To get a nice icon with fast access to steam, it's worth it for me.

    Plus, who knows? It might get even better with updates.

    So make a theme with an icon for the steam bookmark and you'll have a nice, pretty icon for it. Not an "ugly bookmark".

    Waste of money, IMO, but if you like it, then I guess that's great for you.
