Steam for iPad released


Soon it will be difficult to know where Steam ends and the world begins, Valve have released their mobile app for that most monolithic of tablets, the iPad. Now, be you on the train, the bus, in the bath, or in a tree you can access the Steam store and chat client from any of your Apple devices. Reports suggest you may even be able to use the app in other locations, however, we cannot currently confirm this.

Further details after the break.

Previously available for the iPhone, this new app stretches Steam out over the larger screen space of the iPad.

You can pick it up in the Apple store.

The possibilities of combining steam and apples while not endless do have wide-reaching implications. For instance, you can now, presumably, craft baked apples with your device. Get a head start with this BBC Good Food recipe:

  1. Ask a grown-upto turn the oven on to 200C/180C fan/ gas 6. Sit each apple on the worktop and push the apple corer into the centre of each one (orask a grown-upto do this for you).
  2. Mix the sultanas, muscovado sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl.
  3. Stand up the apples, side by side, in a baking dish. Using your fingers, push a little bit of the sultana mixture into each apple, using up all the mixture between them.
  4. Add a blob of butter to the top of each and sprinkle over the demerara sugar.Ask a grown-upto put the dish in the oven for 20 mins or until the apples are cooked through.
