Third-party developers began distributing their games on Steam, and it soon became the go-to online marketplace for digital distribution of video games, just like i Tunes is for music.

Mobile apps with connected functionality with the main software were later released for i OS, Android, and Windows Phone devices in the 2010s.
The Steam platform is considered to be the largest digital distribution platform for PC gaming, and was estimated by Screen Digest to have 75% of the market space in October 2013.
