I work as an iOS software engineer, and I'm trying to gain some experience into UI design.
The Steam app on iOS, while encouraged for some tasks (e.g. Steam Guard) is in need of some love to get it to feel really great to use.
So I set out to try re-designing it to fit the iOS style while still feeling distinctly "Steam."
I haven't done every single part of the app, but I've done enough to get a feel for the vibe, and I'm interested to see what comments / criticism the community might have.
Have a look and let me know!
For the confirmations screen, I tried to solve some of the pain points people experience.for example, instead of having to tap to check everything in the list, there's a \"select all\" button at the top, handy for when you're selling tons and tons of trading cards!
For the store front, I again tried to keep the style of the regular Steam Store, while still giving it that iOS flair. The color for the \"special offer\" badge, for example, matches the one used on the desktop app. Having the search bar front and center in the usual place was important to me as well, as it allows you to quickly look up something on the go. Perfect for the last day of the sales!
I love that the Library tab on the desktop app evokes that \"real game case\" vibe, so I tried to replicate that in the app as well. The app can also directly link into the Steam Link app, so you can get straight into any games you might have installed on your PC. Technically this might break App Store guidelines, but I don't care!
That's all I've done for now, the next ones I will do will probably be the Store page for an individual app and the friends list.
Please let me know what you think! Thanks!
