New UI is horrible / projects can be scams
They have ruined the app with a new updated user interface. Please go back. Plus research the project creators as I had been robbed by one. They promised to develop a product that I was interested in making a reality and the creators dropped off the face of the earth. It's one thing for a project to fail but it's another to just stop communicating with backers and disappearing with the funds. I'm pretty sure they provided fake updates as no one received anything and they never responded to questions on what happened. They also had a fake website that is no longer. Don't let this happen to you as kickstarter will not assist in the matter. They get their fees and tell you that no project is guaranteed. The project that scammed me was the Slimo wireless charger and the creators called themselves "My Gadget Room". Look at the backer comments for more details.
Not happy with the new app interface. When swiping through projects it's very easy to accidentally swipe up or down. You lose your place in a category and then have to scroll through tons of projects you've all ready seen just to get back to where you were.
Also, we can't see the projects we've stared now!? I was using that to bookmark projects I wanted to take a look at later. Now I have to wait two days before they end to look at them again.
Stop trying to be so fancy. Just give us a simple, clean layout so we can view the projects.
Given up on v2.x IOS KS app
Edit: I used to check local projects daily, not so anymore. I have not backed a project since the v2 release. I am deleting this app, it is no longer of any use to me.
Please, no more v2 minor updates, this dead horse does not need to be flogged. While you address the many issues, why not make your user base happy and rollback to the well designed v1? I really want to get back to using the KS app. In v1 I could search for projects close to my current location, not so in v2. What a shame. The interface looks flashy but it's navigation is clunky when compared to the superior design of v1. I have suspended my KS activity for the time being, the app just makes searching and browsing too cumbersome.
