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

Too Many Scams

I don't normally bother with reviews but In this case, I feel it would be wrong of me to not take the time to try and warn any new potential Kickstarter supporters before they too are scammed out of hundreds and hundreds if $'s. I have backed 44 projects on Kickstarter over the last couple yrs, I can say that most of the campaigns and campaigners have turned out ok but recently, the scams have been happening more and more. For me, 4 of my last 8 have wound up being scams. This wouldn't grant an automatic 1* review all on its own but when I take into consideration that I've now contacted Kickstarter customer support about 3 of the 4 campaigns that have scammed me as well as countless other backers, I've not received a single response nor have I seen any signs of anyone else having received one either. It's not just me who has been cheated out of hundreds of dollars, its countless others. No telling how many other campaigns have wound up being scams as well that I'm unaware of because I didn't back them. I'd say it's safe to say that the total dollar amount that backers have been scammed out of has to be well over a million dollars yet Kickstarter customer support can't even offer a response nor put a stop to the campaigners that are stealing people's $. Maybe they are being paid off to just let it happen. 🤷🏻‍♂️
