Apple Rejects The Steam Link App

Valve’s Steam Link app, which allows Steam users to stream their library of PC video games to a smartphone, has been rejected from iTunes by Apple – effectively blocking its release on iOS.

The Steam Link app was originally approved for release on May 7th, but on May 10th Apple revoked its approval “citing business conflicts with app guidelines that had allegedly not been realized by the original review team” says Valve in a statement.

Valve appealed the second decision, but Apple declined to change its mind a second time. It was thought that should it be successful, the Apple TV could effectively be used as a Steam Link that could hook up a desktop PC to a TV from anywhere within one’s home.
