Kickstarter has announced it has released an official app for download, available for the iPhone and iPod touch.
The app is a whole new way to experience Kickstarter. We took things we’ve learned from the past three years of building the site, and applied them to a total redesign for the iPhone. We redesigned the project page, browse pages, and others. And we focused on making three things really useful and fun: finding new projects, keeping up to date with projects you’ve backed, and offering great tools for creators.
The app works fairly well and is nicely designed in a simple, easy to use and clear interface. From our initial tests, the app is pretty cool for surfing Kickstarter projects and enables you to find projects based on your location. The main ‘Discover’ tab offers an infinity scroll to keep on displaying projects as long as you keep swiping up. You can back any project from the app itself, taking Kickstarter mobile.
Once logged in you can keep track of your previously backed projects and view updates. Creators can also manage their projects from within the app and use the iPhone’s camera to post updates right from the app.
