      amazing but just needs 2 things

      Steam link is just absolutely great and i love it so much!! im able to play The Forest and Friday The 13th and its just so amazing but theres just one problem. i am unable to shift/Run when i play with my buttons on screen so it would be great if there was a button or maybe having to double tap and hold the joystick and is it possible for us to be able to play with our laptop offline and maybe being really really really far apart from our laptop because something like that would be really helpful when trying to play from another location on your phone instead of having to play while your at home 🏡 and okay now this will be the last thing i promise haha but um is there any possible way that the buttons on the controller can be customized in their size because if i have a small phone i wanna make sure i can see a lot of the screen and sometimes some buttons just cover most of the screen so if you guys could cover these things it would be amazing. Thank you so much for your time and you guys are doing amazing so keep at it

      Usually works well, needs some additional features

      I have been using this to play a number of PC games on my iPhone. In general it works very well, occasionally requiring a reset that usually fixes things. My biggest issue with it is that there are a few commands hard coded into the app that sometimes conflict with certain games. Most notably, holding down the Y button on the controller brings up the session manager overlay. However some games require you to hold down Y for various things, and the app makes that input Impossible. Sea of thieves is a good example, where you have to hold down Y to interact with lots of things, but doing so is impossible while playing through this app. This function should be remappable, or at least moved to hold down start or something less commonly used in games.

      Terrible most of the time.

      So I only have one game right now that I care about and maybe the issue is just compatibility with that particular game but my experience has been awful. The game is Steins;Gate 0. When I start the majority of the time it will get stuck on “connecting”. Except it isn’t really. There is a pop up that appears on the PC. So I have to go over there and click the button with my mouse. Now the game will start on the iPad. But... half the time now the audio is on the PC and not on the iPad. And half the time the Steam controller stops working a few seconds in. If the game is full screen the it runs 10x faster than it should making it unplayable but only when using this app. If it isn’t full screen then half the time the streaming misses just slightly so I see part of the desktop and part of the game. There are other issues but I’m running out of space. But when it works it works great, just requires around 5 tries and 10 minutes to get there.

      The idea of being able to play my games on my phone or other devices is in itself amazing. I’m absolutely blown away at this. Not only does this allow me some freedom in regards to proximity and the like, it gives new life to games I’ve shelved. For example, Stardew Valley: great game, I love it, but I’ve always felt it would be better as a mobile game and when I saw it on my phone’s App Store, I knew it would be fun but I wasn’t willing to buy it twice. This allows me to not only play Stardew Valley on my mobile but also treat it like I have felt it should be, something I check in on and play in 20 minute or so increments rather than dedicate hours to at a time. Brilliant idea, and the fact that it’s possible.... I can’t sing your praises enough.
