What's New in Version 2.4
Lots of bug fixes and user experience improvements.
Latest update makes it almost useless
I've been using this app for a couple years and everything was fine until this latest update. Now it no long shows how much funding a project has gotten so far, which is essential. On two previous projects I saw that they were getting close to the deadline and I raised my funding to help them get funded. Now I have to go to the website to get this info, which is a pain.
I also have always disliked that if I'm looking at a project in the app and I go to Safari to research the project or rewards, when I return to the app it goes back to the opening screen and I have to search for the project again. Every time.
I will just have to use the website from now on.
A 4 star now a 2
I agree with the users who mention problems with accidentally swiping down and losing your place. I also would say it is annoying you can't just save your favorite section(s) in KS so you don't have to go through all the other stuff...every time. This latest update has made it worse. Now you can't tell where the KS projects you are backing are at in funding. The progress bar is gone, the current number of backers is gone. The current funding amount is gone. These things are vital. You decide a lot from that info. Also KS campaigns often give backers Stretch Goals based on funding amount and number of backers. Absolutely ridiculous these are not on there now.
Update Not an Improvement
The latest update took away the "Read More" button and added the additional info under the heading "Campaign". The creators gave no notice this was happening and (call me stupid) it took me two days to find this out. I missed out on an early bird deal because I had no information to decide if the project was for me or not! I didn't bother scrolling down the page because everything I needed used to be right there at the top. The app looks great and I've never had any of the problems others have mentioned.
