Steam is the official Virtual Reality App Store for the SteamVR and HTC Vive. Created by Valve and released in 2003, Steam curates and distributes games, apps and software not only for VR Devices but also for PC, Mac, Linux and SteamOS. It is the largest and most popular digital distribution platform for PC games. The app store is accessible on VR Devices such as HTC Vive and Oculus Rift and non-VR devices such as PC and Mobile.

In 2013, Steam added a category called VR Support. Since then Valve has slowly added for subcategories and other features.

How to Run Oculus Rift App Natively on Steam

If you are in SteamVR mode, it will do it automatically (depending on what device you are using). Otherwise you usually right click the item in the desktop client and select the option: Launch Oculus Rift in VR Mode. It might also give you a popup if you try to launch it straight away.
