What's New in Version 2.2
*Friends suggest the best projects!* With our social feature enabled, you'll be able to search for projects that your friends have backed, and they’ll appear on project cards as you’re exploring through other areas of our app.
*Enhanced Discovery* We’ve added paging as your swiping through projects to make exploring just a little bit easier.
This update is insultingly bad. Was it signed off on without so much as a test drive?
The new layout is horrible. I don't know why horizontal scrolling keeps being forced upon us by various developers. It might look neat, but it is unnatural compared to simple vertical scrolling. If anything, they should REVERSE the new navigation so that you can swipe side to side to visit different *vertical* lists.
The previous version was FINE. All that it really needed was a more robust sort and filter mechanism. Here, the new implementation is not even successful. For instance, you touch the categories and select "Design"; WHY would the sub-levels not drop down at this point? Now you have to go back in order to drill down to your exact preference. It's clumsy and feels like this app was redesigned by people who never used it. Rewards and Comments are also hidden in separate sections.
I've resorted to using the mobile site for now, but eventually I don't see myself staying interested in browsing if it's going to be such a cumbersome and unpleasant experience. Previously, it was easy and fun to look around. No longer.
Clean and well done but backed project page is a mess now
The new version is clean and social sharing is a nice feature.
However now my "backed projects page" is jumbled whereas before it was ordered from most recently backed onward (ironically I think this update was supposed to fix that even though I didn't have any problems before). Can we get a feature to change how my backed projects are ordered? I'd especially find it useful to see them organized by "time remaining" and "most recently backed".
Give us the old setup back....
Keep updating till it gets back to how it use to be.
