While some of this data was accessible in one way or another before GDPR became law, this new portal organizes it and makes it easier to find specific information.

Steam Link on iOS won’t allow buying games

Apple has very strict rules for what apps are allowed on its iOS app store. One of those is that the app shouldn't offer its own marketplace, be it for other apps or even digital content. That is the reality that Amazon has faced with its Kindle app and that is the same reality Valve will now have to face.

Steam Link app isn’t coming to iOS

Steam Link app isn’t coming to iOS

In light of Facebook's most recent and biggest scandal, Apple has often touted its more direct and human-curated system of screening apps that go into its app stores. While that does leave little room for malicious apps to get through, it does have one drawback. It subjects apps and developers to what may at times seem like whimsical standards.
