Deon and Dave join Brett on this episode of htxt.africast which is all about mobile and gaming. They talk about the overhaul to the Steam client (currently in beta), the new metal Samsung Galaxy Alpha (and its sadly lacking battery), Standard Bank’s new smartphone app and some of the upcoming highlights from Gamescom.

We also get the mixed news about Maker Faire Africa being delayed but expanded, and give you an opportunity to win free tickets to Lean Startup Weekend.

As always, we welcome your feedback on podcast [at] and encourage you to subscribe to the show by adding to your favourite podcatcher or clicking here if you have iTunes.
