DIM is a website that can be used on any device with a recent web browser. You can get a more app-like experience on mobile or desktop by "installing" DIM through Chrome or Safari.

DIM can be set as the home page for the Steam Overlay, so you can use a shortcut (Shift+Tab by default) to show DIM over your game without switching windows. Open Steam Settings (from the "Steam" menu), click on "Web Browser", and change the home page to
