Introducing the Kickstarter App for iPhone and iPod Touch

Share this post

We're excited to announce that the first official Kickstarter app launched in the iTunes Store this morning! It's available for iPhone and iPod Touch, it's free, and you can download it here.

The app is a whole new way to experience Kickstarter. We took things we've learned from the past three years of building the site, and applied them to a total redesign for the iPhone. We redesigned the project page, browse pages, and others. And we focused on making three things really useful and fun: finding new projects, keeping up to date with projects you've backed, and offering great tools for creators.

Finding projects

The best part of Kickstarter is all the amazing projects, and the app is a really fun way to find them. You can browse projects by category, popularity, and other filters. You can back projects and watch project videos. And you can even use your location to see projects near you.

Following projects

The app also keeps backers up-to-date on the projects they’ve backed. The Activity tab shares updates from projects you’re backing, with new updates getting added the instant the creator posts them. If you use Kickstarter’s social features, the app notifies you when your friends back projects or launch a project of their own. (You can easily add friends from Facebook in the app if you aren't using this already.)

Creator tools

The app has a bunch of great stuff to help creators manage their projects. It notifies creators of pledges as they happen. It keeps creators up-to-date on their project’s progress and stats with the project dashboard. Most excitingly, creators can take pictures and videos with their iPhone camera and post them as project updates straight from the app, bringing backers even closer to the creative process.

Thanks!

We want to thank our team for their incredible work in making the first Kickstarter app. We especially want to thank Brandon Williams and Andrew Cornett who worked tirelessly to build and design this. They did an amazing job.

We’re excited to share this with the millions of Kickstarter backers who have helped bring so many projects to life, and our amazing community of filmmakers, musicians, gamers, designers, technologists, and other creators. Thanks so much for being a part of Kickstarter. We hope you enjoy!
