Writing updates is a pain.
I want to like this app, I do. With 3 successful Kickstarters behind me, anything to make life easier is a plus. But this app really doesn't. The updating feature is horrible. I can't scroll all the way down through what I just typed to fix errors or reread. Right now I type my update in another program then copy and paste it over. And half the time the Kickstarter app messes up my formatting, so I end up logging in on their website from my phone anyway.
The messaging section is also confusing and I don't understand why we can't delete messages. My box is full, and the amount of spam I get on Kickstarter is horrendous. I know you guys are working on the spam problem, but having to filter through every message to find a few I'm looking for is difficult and time consuming when I can't just delete the spam offers and other people begging or bargaining for their own kickstarters. Also trying to find messages vs comments on updates is trying.
Honestly, as much as I love the Kickstarter platform the only reason I still use the app is for notifications.
1st in line
Kickstarter has been great...looking for that something you didn't know you needed...here you go...or you just couldn't find that something you did need...have funded quite a few projects...only one that really wasn't what I was expecting...but has been great...you help them get going, in return you get some kind of reward back...win, win...I guess some projects don't pan out, so not sure what happens there...has worked well for me though...one item I was looking for forever and found it here...and I think you can only get it here at the moment...sometimes it's the little business guy that has the best products...keep it up, Kickstarter...
It's a good app but it can improve
Over all, it's smooth to use and get to certain features. As a backer, I feel like the side scroll method of looking at potential products to support is easy to mess up. If you swipe wrong while trying to view a project you end up in a different category and have to start the process over.
As a creator, I wish the update option would allow you to format a little. I'd like to be able to italicize a title for example. And getting to the place where you can send private messages to your backers (like Thank you!) is non intuitive. But I like using the app.
