Pin Steam

Pin your Steam games and friends to the Start Menu with beautiful tiles. Live tiles show you which of your friends are playing which games. You can also pin friends directly to the start screen and follow their online status. To use Live Tiles, this app requires you to have a Steam account and to have setup a Custom URL in your steam profile. It also requires Steam to be installed on your device to launch games. (NOTE: Steam is not available for Windows RT yet!) Neither this app or it's creator is affiliated with Valve Software in any way.

Cause I Donated For The cause

Clicking the tiles do not work and moving them on the start menu will remove the tile all together

After hearing good things about this app (news worthy to get on LifeHacker), I decided to try it and I'm glad I didn't BUY it. Horrible. How is it possible to be able to find my friends, but then tell me I don't have any games? Especially when I just installed three games from the non-listing of games I have? And nothing comes when trying to figure out what the issue is. Obviously Valve have something on it when even something as simple as loading a profile doesn't work.

Posts it with a "permanent free trial" to entice downloads, but when you try to open a pined game it opens the Pin Steam app instead saying you have to buy it to ACTUALLY use the app. Rating one star because zero is not an option.

I love the fact you can change the images for different tile sizes, but there needs to be more flexibility in zooming and cropping for smaller images. (Meaning more that 80% & 100% in both directions)

This is in no regards the best app to use to pin steam games. While it does perform its function of allowing you to place steam games on the start menu with any of the 4 different sizes (Large, Wide, Medium, Small), the customization of how the tiles will look is limited. It allows you to crop the image placed with only 2 fixed sizes, which is a problem as the photos you'll have will be much larger. However, if you're just looking to pin steam games in a wide view format, then this is good for you.

This is a great tool for improving the Metro icons for your Steam games. Simple and versatile. I highly recommend.

Tons of customizations :D

I've been using this product for over a year now and it does everything I hoped it would. The custom tile feature is great and allows me to categorize my library in a visually appealing way by having "small, medium, large, and huge" tile sizes. The feature provided a default large tile size and provided automatic search results for making custom images for the other tile sizes. Unfortunately the automatic search feature was broken during the latest update and has not been fixed since. You can still search for them yourself, save them, and load them into the custom tile from your own files but this method is clunk and a lot of trial and error when compared to how it used to be. I'd still recommend it for anyone who wants to customize their library on their start screen, but I won't give it 5 stars until it rebuilds its best feature.
