What's New in Version 2.7.2
Now you can reorder your favorite categories in the main search index.
We've added loading indicators to discovery (so you'll know that more cool projects are just a few seconds away).
A few small bug fixes.
More disorganized than me! You have to work HARD at that!
Like the concept, have enjoyed the projects and interaction with developers; especially fast tracking them to contacts to keep growing. HUGE Dislike for the disorganized app is an understatement "I hate the app." But I shouldn't hate something I've benefited from so fIX it..make it simple. It is a frustrating "maze." I make sure to get name & do a screen shots to find my stuff. The projects (8 currently) and thousands of dollars have ALL been by accident from stumbling upon the offer/idea. The number of ideas I am missing is mathematically staggering. Please fix or give video instruction so we can find "MORE" good things/causes instead of just stumbling upon them. I know it's growing pains but put effort in now before I give up like other apps that got messy.
So many ways to lose your place, please fix
I like to browse from the beginning to the end in a category
But if you accidentally swipe slightly up or down, you go to a different category, and then when you go back, you're back at square one
Also sometimes after watching a video, or funding a project, it loses your place
Or if it crashes and you have to restart. Or if you switch apps.
Or if you hit some other bug and have to restart - for example sometimes it loses the outer UI frame and you can't navigate anymore, and have to restart.
Or if almost anything else happens, like say a butterfly on another continent flaps its wings slightly out of sync, you guessed it, you have to start completely over.
The app is more stable than it used to be. And I do love the service, that's why I care enough to slightly rant
Also, a different issue, "magic" sort sometimes shows the same project multiple times.
Kickstarter is wonderful, but missing features
First, I love that I'm able to be connected to upcoming products at reduced rates and I love that I'm helping support innovation. I love connecting with friends so I can see what they back.
I do wish the Kickstarter creators would add a few features...
1. I wish there was a way to hide backing stuff when it's a gift for someone...
2. I tend to search on a few terms and would adore a way to save my favorite searches. I haven't found a way to do this on the app or on the Kickstarter page.
3. I would also love an easy way to filter out finished projects.
4. I'd love to be able to see new projects in order from most recently added so I can stop my search with less repeated views.
