What's New in Version 3.0.2
Get ready for a new look and feel, a more seamless project discovery experience, and some dramatic improvements to make exploring, backing, and managing projects from anywhere even easier.
Poor Interface upgrade
For the most part the new version of the app is functional, however they sacrificed presentation and ease of use, for their new bare bones, unfinished look and feel.
One thing I liked about the previous version is that on active projects you kick, they told you how many days were left, before you enter the project. Now you have to take the time to enter each project and look to determine when they end. Also the menu interface is unnecessarily confusing. I've found it to be difficult to tell (if you are looking for new projects) if they are sorted how you would. And once in a project I'm finding it still confusing as to how you get into the details of the project.
The overall feel of the app is very "work in progress" where before it felt more professional. For the most part, I understand that I am making aesthetic arguments. However for me, my desire to use the app is in part aided by its interface, which in its present state is not that great.
Love this app. It's easy to use
"Kickstarter is probably one of the coolest websites I have ever been on. I have already backed two projects and waiting to see if the third one goes through."
This was my original comment before the updated. Not sure what to think of the update, but I just backed another project, my 11 one! Only one of the projects I backed didn't get funded. Still love this app. I might use Kickstarter one day!
Kickstarter brought harmony in the universe once more
I've had about 2 minutes worth of time on the app, so I can't speak to its stability, but the latest design had me at hello. Finally, we've all be released from the awful clutches of the previous design. Thank-you, thank-you, THANK-YOU!
