Editors’ Notes

This stunning app has us hooked on discovering innovative projects made by passionate people. From art exhibits to high-tech gadgets, we're following campaigns from inception to completion. Through pitch videos, activity alerts, and the ability to back ideas directly from your device, finding and funding remarkable concepts is a cinch.


Canceled due to inability to retry payments

I’m a superbacker, having backed nearly 500 projects. My bank denies almost every project because Kickstarter submits it as an international charge. Yet when I go to fix it, I get sent to a corrupt webpage that send me to an error 404 page. I’ve been dropped by several projects and am about to lose 3 more. I’m no longer using Kickstarter, no matter how good some campaigns are. They are a fraudulent, unaccountable, thieving company that gives zero FuX about customers. They take proceeds from a project and then say they aren’t responsible for anything. Taking money from someone while the seller takes the money and runs constitutes collusion. Unethical and dishonest and ultimately disappointing to people trying to help others. Don’t use. Even the best projects can leave you burned. Kickstarter harbors and assists criminals.


No one mediates the projects

I backed 5 projects all of them late 2-3 months and 1 nakefit is a total scam. Took $90 ran off with it and no one heard back from this company and can’t get their money back. And from the comments kickstarter has no problem collecting their share of the projects but says it’s the responsibility of the company to refund our money, so we lose our cash. The other 2 projects also frauds. After finally getting our backings the projects inventions didn’t work at all. No one checks the safety of these items. I backed a button up for shoes , completely busted apart almost injuring my husband and glass x which ruined my screen after following their instructions to a t. Kickstarter needs regulations. 2 out of 5 was just ok item the the other 3 is crap or a scam.
