Backers on Kickstarter are passionate, creative visionaries that find joy and connection in funding new ideas and bringing them to life. Discover projects in categories like art, design, film, games, hardware, and music, then pledge to your favorites right from the app. Make the world a more creative and innovative place while receiving awesome (and often exclusive) rewards.
Creators can use the app to keep up with their own projects on the go, as well as stay in touch with their backers.
With the Kickstarter app, you can:
• Join like-minded backers to help make new ideas a reality.
• Stay connected with updates from projects you’ve backed.
• Save your favorites and get reminders before projects end.
Project creators can stay up to date from anywhere:
• Easily track your funding progress.

We’ve been working hard to improve the Kickstarter app and incorporate your feedback. This release includes bug fixes, internal upgrades, and other updates to the experience.
Ratings and Reviews
Everything Works Really Well, But…
In the current version, all the features are very user-friendly and everything works really well, but there is a small glitch worthy of some note: if you tap on a notification banner, it takes you to the app but not to the update, survey, message, etc. you are being notified about. I hope it's not too much trouble to fix, but that's pretty hampering to accessibility and efficiency as things stand now.
On a lesser note, if there were some to make the notifications not all clear away from the Notification Center when only one of them is being selected, that would further help in the name of efficiency. Some apps, I notice, wipe clean the notifications from the Notification Center the moment the app is opened or reentered, whereas some don't mess with them at all, save for removing the ones tapped on/swiped left. When you've backed dozens upon dozens of campaigns that are still actively updating, it can be such a slog skimming through the Activity Log, especially if you're more interested in reading certain updates first. Notifications are ideally a quick and easy way to flip everything new to find the info/content you're most interested in at the present moment. If you are able to change this at all without, of course, completely recoding the app from zero, I would greatly appreciate that bit of fine-tuning. 😁 Please & thanks, and keep up the great work on the app. 💚👍
Very handy app
I’ve learned from experience from backing numerous projects that it can be a BUYER BEWARE gamble to put your money up while trusting in creators/artists and scammers! I rate the KICKSTARTER APP as 5 stars because it works perfectly and lets me keep track of all the projects I back without having to get on a computer-CONVENIENT
I can track projects that I’ve received rewards from and keep updated on what’s going on with each project and leave comments. I can search for new projects and it has never given me issues (the app, on iPhone 7 and iPad 11 Pro) solid app. But as for Kickstarter, RESEARCH THE CREATORS BEFORE YOU BACK THEM. Make sure they’ve completed and fulfilled previous projects and that they’re getting great reviews! It’s very hard to get your money back from creators that don’t complete or follow up. Sometimes you don’t get your money back and NEVER get the rewards!
I 💯 recommend this APP but Kickstarter can be a money pit
How in the world does this app have such a high rating?
There’s no possible way that this app should have a 4.8 rating when you look at all of the recent reviews very few are above a 1, 2 or 3 star review.
Here’s the problem with Kickstarter. When you make a pledge on a product I get that they give you the warning saying you may never get your product. The problem is none of the people offering products that have delays are honest with their customers. There’s very little communication. Right after they get all the money they’re excited and you get a lot of updates. But then things start slowing down. Deadlines get missed and the project managers stop communicating with their backers. Kickstarter doesn’t really do anything about this. When you report a project nothing happens. As a result Kickstarter is 100% behind the project managers, and does nothing to support the backers. I have backed a number of projects and often receive them eventually. You never get your product on time and most of the time it’s at least six months to a year late.A number of the project at bat I’ve been more than two years late like a current one but I’m still waiting on. Once I get the last two that I have back I will never again you Kickstarter to back any projects.
