Kickstarter Launches iOS App

The popular social fundraising site Kickstarter has gone mobile with the launch of its first app.

The iOS app lets backers browse projects by category and popularity and if you find something you like, you can back a project. The app supports videos, so you can watch project videos. It also taps into your GPS so that you can search for projects near your location.

The app has tools for creators as well. Here is more from the Kickstarter blog: “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.”
