For instance, wishlists can be filtered between games that are less than $10, less than $5, or less than the user's Steam Wallet balance.

Steam's Lunar New Year Sale is here, and to celebrate the thousands of games on sale, Valve has unveiled a new update to the gaming distribution service's UI.

The first details about Apple iOS 12
Come iOS 12 , it may take a while for you to notice its biggest feature, assuming that Apple's new strategy is successful. Apple is expected to discuss more on iOS 12 later this year at WWDC, and we'll see just what features Apple does debut.

But it's the filters that are most welcome. This can be frustrating when trying to find items during a large Steam sale or to finding purchases at particular prices. In fact, the latter lets you sort according to the size of the discount: 50 percent, 75 percent, and so forth. You can filter your wishlist based on price, discount amount, genre, and tags. Clicking any of those tags will filter your Wishlist to just other titles with that same tag applied. You can also see popular tags for each game underneath the title, and filter out Early Access titles, which will appear again when development is complete.

Many players have reported that they find a promising game now in Early Access that they want to keep track of, but aren't interested in buying until the game has transitioned to full release. The new wishlist will display an "add to cart" option only for those games with a single purchasing option.

Emily Sweeney crashes on final run, says she "is fine"
Sweeney was conscious, and she eventually got up and walked off the ice under her own power, though she was moving gingerly. Sweeney, 24, is competing in her first Olympics after missing out on a spot in the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.

The combination of filters and sort-orders users pick will also automatically save and apply next time the Wishlist is accessed. For example, some games have a Deluxe Edition or multiple Starter Pack options that make the offer more complicated. There's also now a button to add something directly to your cart from the wishlist, sparing you the extra step of having to first visit its store page.

As always, Valve is looking for feedback on the new changes as well as suggestions on new features to add for the user experience.
