What's New in Version 2.8
Here's a belated Halloween treat: now introducing version 2.8!
You can now jump into a subcategory directly from the categories filters. This means that you're a few taps closer to bacon (or vegan) themed projects. Happy browsing!
Whenever you come across a Kickstarter project link on the web, it'll open directly in the app.
We've upgraded our 1Password and Facebook login options to provide a seamless login experience.
A few other minor improvements and bug fixes.
Very Frustrating App!!
It's impossible to use this app for more then 2 min without becoming completely frustrated over its irrational behavior. Don't take me wrong, the app is clean and easy to use, but it will not behave as one might expect. As you swipe left, when browsing the different campaigns, you need to move your finger perfectly horizontal across the screen. If your finger wonders, just a bit, either up or down the screen, it will cause the app to switch campaign categories and you will loose your "location" among the different campaigns you were browsing; you'll need to start scrolling from the beginning. Also, let's say you found a campaign that interests you, you decided to open it and check it out, a lot of the times once you are done and close the campaign page (by hitting X) you are not brought back to where you stopped. The app takes you back to some random category other then the one you were browsing, thus causing you to, again, start scrolling from the beginning. This has been going on for a long time. It's hard to believe they are not aware of the situation...
Dont hate, just invest wisely.
Kickstarter is like investing. No matter what company you invest in there is always a chance for failure. I have helped fund two campaigns and spent over $1000. Each time I became interested in a company i would research and find out what the chances of failure are and deduce how i perceive the company to be legit. It is always easier and safer to fund a company that has already produced things than to fund a one man group trying to change the world. Both projects i have backed delivered ahead of schedule. I have my issues with the app and its non-functionality. That explains the 4 star. But i have a new bed that makes my life way better and i wouldn't if Kickstarter was not in the picture. Just fix the app, i know you have the money.
New app layout terrible
Still hate it. Accidentally switches from one category to another while flipping through projects, resets to beginning of category when going back, just painful to use.
Cover flow UIs are bad, but your implementation of the concept is terrible.
Update, again, and yes it is still bad.
If you are thinking we will 'get used to it', you are sadly mistaken, as others are doing Im no longer using this app.
The discrete sliding does not help, it's actually more annoying because it takes so much lateral movement of the finger on the screen to get far enough for it to snap over rather than return. It is just bad.
What are you thinking with static content showing all the time in half the screen? There is no need for static display area... Unless it is a Menu bar, not half the screen. Are you trying to cause burn in on our screens or something?? (Yes impossible, but sadly the only good reason for this update is to try?)
I know what app I'm using, why is half my mobile device screen consumed with a giant Kickstarter label while browsing for projects!!! It's not like I will forget which app this is!! Use space wisely, this was not wise.
I cannot even stand to use it, going to mobile web instead, app nearly useless.
