Connecting is easy. What is not clear is how to configure controllers. The generic one, despite testing validating the buttons work, refuses to work while running games. There are also menus in Steam that you get stuck in and cannot backup, forcing you to kill the stream and restart it. In short, would be nice to play games but controller doesn't work (works fine on PC or locally on Android).

Love this app. It's great to be able to play my PC games on my phone laying in bed. It works well with a good wifi connection (PC is wired) and the latency is pretty low. The only issue I have with it is that sometimes the on-screen keyboard won't work. I can get it to come up but can't type anything, which means I can't get past the login screen on my PC. It doesn't happen every time, but its annoying when it does.

This app obviously has a few issues, but it's a FREE way to connect and play games on your phone from your pc. From local games I can play with family using 2 devices, to playing games upstairs while my pc is downstairs, i can manage easily with the brief moments of buffering, there is a very slight lag, but as long as your not playing a high pace game, it's no problem. Even through the minor bugs, it gets a 5 start from me. Its streaming, you have to set realistic expectations.
