I was snooping around inside Steam for Android's APK one time and was shocked to learn that it actually uses Fragments. It looks and feels like the entire app is a WebView, but apparently it uses Fragments to some extent.

Of course using Fragment doesn't make an app automatically great, but it typically indicates an understanding of the platform, which I'm not seeing in the app.

I don't know who that is, so that's cool.

I have to assume it's faster than loading up your trophies on PS3. Damn, that's slow.

The Huge Fish combo is misleadingly named. You get more Ice Cube than Huge Fish. They should call it the Ice Cube combo.

Looks like it wasn't an accident. That was its actual name at some point.

Keep it as an alias, I guess.

I don't like the idea of locking staff-posted news articles, but do it.

I would be fine using users' API keys if there was a developer-friendly way of obtaining them. We have to ask the user for their login credentials, POST to the login form and hope that its fields don't change unexpectedly, scrape the link code from a web page and hope that its structure doesn't change unexpectedly, and then use that link code in a way that I've forgotten because it's not documented anywhere.I could skip several steps by insisting the user obtain and provide the link code themselves, but I still don't remember what to do with the link code once I have it.There is a lot of room for improvement here.

Developers can easily shit out a PS2 collection with a resolution upgrade. For N64 and PS1 games, you'd probably want them to improve the graphics a bit too. They look a lot worse than you remember.

@white_silhouette: The gas is restricted to your personal vehicle. At least at the time of purchase. It's not clear whether or not you're allowed to siphon the gas out of your tank afterward. Seems like that would be more of a hassle.
