Steam's Android app hints at non-gaming software delivery

Steam's Android app has been snapped listing categories from photo editing to accounting, as seen on The Verge. Gabe's been talking about adding non-game stuff to Steam for at least four years - I asked him about it at Games Convention in 2008, I think, and he said it was on the cards - so don't be too shocked.

Valve's made no comment as yet.

After garnering experience on countless gaming magazines, he joined Eurogamer and later split from that brand to create VG247, putting the site on the map with fast, 24-hour a day coverage, and assembling the site's earliest editorial teams. He retired from VG247, and the games industry, in 2017.
