Engaging and easy to use
I love kickstarter. If I need to make it through a class or am eating alone I will likely browse kickstarter to see what's being dreamed of. I have backed numerous projects, so my experience with the app is regular. The app as a whole is incredibly engaging and allows the user to get what they need out of the app. It's very easy to find projects you started and to also go to your profile and check in on projects you have backed. The only critique I have with the Kickstarter app is that it could give you better search options within their genres of projects. Providing a list of options to filter through projects in addition to choosing a broad genre would perhaps make it more streamlined.
Works great, but lacks a feature or two...
The app is reliable and works great, but I'd like it better if a company's cancelled projects didn't still show up under projects I've backed. That's a lot of fluff to dig through. I also would like to be able to when I see the profile of someone who is in the comment threads on multiple projects I've backed so I can see if there's a project they backed that I might be interested in. you can only do that now if they are on your friends list.
Impulse (Lack of) Control
Con: It's too easy to impulse buy (support?). But what shopping app doesn't have that "issue"?
Pros: This app is well-designed for its platform, from top to bottom, and the only complaint any could leverage is the lackluster speed of the search engine, (which spits out results nicely all the same). There's always room for tweaking the interface, of course, but it's a gorgeous app for now.
