  1. Ken Emond-avatar

    As an eclectic gamer, I enjoy seeing innovative ideas come to fruition... aaaaaand to be a part of the initial process is exciting & cool as shite. The app is cool too, lol. It's suffice, I've no prob navigating, viewing, commenting, addressing, contacting, observing, probing, delving, finding, proposing,.... aaaaaand a plethora of ing-ings that go without saying... look another one, ha! Peace and be safe. K.E...

  2. Funkentron-avatar

    shop The updates to the UI suck. In the old app I used to be able to scroll through the information and could see what the tiers were. Its also no hard to find this app is severely hampered by issues as pointed out in many other reviews. Which pisses me off the most. Is that regardless of turning autoupdates off on this app, it still automatically updates. Thanks for the security hole. Anyways, easy solution, uninstall. Done, bye

  3. Megha Shetty-avatar

    roller I love this app as it showcases possibilities and ideas, connects the buyers with the makers.. I have few issues/recommendation (nvm if it's taken care of): 1) I've been facing issues with searching for products using the search bar - it doesn't seem to work;searching for products should be made easier 2) For the older projects/already funded, it's be great if we could be directed to the website/contact where we could place the order for the product 3) sometimes the app takes time to load. Tnx!

  4. Ruby Rose-avatar

    brettspiele It has a major flaw it's not well made for creators if your creator doing your own campaign on here and this is only by the app you don't get notifications when somebody puts a comment down on your project which is a pretty stupid Overlook on their part it's hard to navigate or do anything when it comes to managing your own campaign and you cannot create your campaign unless you're on the website some oversights on their end if they fix it this would be a great app

    paypal Good app very slow load times for the campaign page specifically no matter if I'm on wifi or not. Thankfully you can still scroll as it loads but it is still annoying. Updated pretty quickly which is good. I just wish kickstarter updated their web page to be more user friendly.

  6. Etan G-avatar

    everspace 2 When I attempt to view campaign video clips, only first 30 seconds are viewable and then the video stops. I have tried reinstalling and force stopping but to no avail. That never happens on a PC or a tablet. I need your assistance guys.

  7. Jaren3311-avatar

    everdell Overall, this app offers full access to Kickstarter's webpage. Every few updates something seems to break; the issue is fixed after an update or two. Then something else breaks... The app is very bandwidth hungry and can be very slow sometimes. Other than those issues the app works perfectly fine.

    zombicide In general I like the app, but I just don't get why simple features, like being able to go directly to the Kickstarter page from an Update or being able to reply to comments. When these things are implemented I'll update.

  9. Cris Jesse-avatar

    deutschland App is great! Struggles when trying to follow links, especially from one project to the next, but that can be worked around by sharing the current page to your browser app when you're ready to follow the link.

  10. Matt Kacyn-avatar

    alternative I had only used kickstarter once back in 2013 to back a specific project but now that I've gotten this app I've spent more time looking at and saving projects to consider. I've enjoyed this app and used it more than I expected to the past few weeks

    App has great features for quick access to view new items and check messages. Still need to go to desktop once in a while but the app is used as the main access. I love what kickstarter does.

  12. Samuel Khasin-avatar

    On Samsung Galaxy S10+, any trailers/intro videos pause after a few seconds. There is no way to resume or view the video. Downgrading to 1 star, this issue hasn't been fixed. There app also made me miss a deadline to fix my payment method because it was asking me to fill out a survey rather than fix my payment method. Not being able to navigate from an update to the campaign is also ridiculously bad design.

    Logs in & out occasionally, with the login not registering a sign-in at times. Well designed, efficient, & simple UI but missing clear information about back projects/tiers/etc.

  14. tom magness-avatar

    I love Kickstarter, but since a couple of days ago, the app has started crashing whenever I try to look at a project!

  15. laura davidson-avatar

    It is thrilling to be a part of new creations, helping people move a dream to reality. The app is easy to use and truthfully I'm on it everyday.

    Nothing in the menu bar does anything, so I can't look at any of the stuff I've saved to look at again which means I'll have to try and remember them or scrawl through once again to find them.

  17. Noah Yablong-avatar

    Super easy to use, great for scanning through projects just like you would on the website.

    I can spend hours on this app looking through all the projects wanting funding. I love finding projects for things that I'd love to have and enjoy helping them to bring their ideas to life.

  19. MrBastard97-avatar

    It's kinda lame how an app, which are typically meant to be simple, portable ways to manage things, has no feature in which you can manage anything. Upload a profile pic? Nope. Launch a project? Nope. Write a bio? Nope. It seems this app is designed just to look at things. Don't get why you'd even bother releasing an app that lacks these basic, no-brainer features. Imagine Facebook if all you could do was see and 'like' other people's posts. Lame.

  20. Miriam Brooker-avatar

    Can't look at different categories, what I can see is very limited and using the search function only gave me options from 7 years ago....

  21. zachary dale-avatar

    Great ideas! Something for everyone to be inspired by! Easy to navigate app.

  22. jt24817-avatar

    Easy to use and remembers my searches, which in turn generated valid recommendations.

  23. Thad Schrader-avatar

    Works well as a link directly to KS. Fairly straight forward and relatively simple.

  24. FoxSiR-avatar

    KS has been a great way for me to grab board games with no issues!

  25. Carlos Ve-avatar

    Have backed a few products. All have been worth it. App is designed very well. Very intuitive.

  26. Shady Ady-avatar

    I love the Kickstarter app, I use it far more than the main website, and will admit I'm a little addicted! It's so easy to follow/unfollow campaigns - the 48-hour reminder function is extremely handy for making sure you don't miss out on the funding deadlines for the campaigns you are following. I've already funded well over a dozen individual product campaigns - like I said: addicted!

  27. mccrispy-avatar

    I'm trying to work out why I use the App more than the website: I just can't figure out why, the App is inferior in several ways: (1) Following a creator in the App is really convoluted and non-intuitive with next to no visual cues (2) the website has threaded comments, the App does not, so replies in the context of a threaded comment work well on the website, but appear as arbitrary remarks in the App.

  28. Kathryn Schiff-avatar

    Works well. No complaints. Less loading issues since I use my mobile phone moat of the time.

  29. Tracy Tyler-avatar

    Easy to navigate, so many great projects to discover and back

  30. charles yeo-avatar

    Great apps that opens us to alot of new innovation but should have a better enforcement on bad or crooked project creator thats take money but dont deliver.

  31. Jerry K-avatar

    A great app that brings creaters and consumers together. There are no ads, no pushy stearings, and no pressure. You look for content and creaters you are interested in, and Kickstarter makes the introduction. The events are in the words of the creaters, so you get their words, thoughts, and energy.

  32. Pete Shields-avatar

    Far more intuitive and user friendly than the website!

  33. Anthony Levy-avatar

    A Great APP for People who Enjoy others Artistry and Passions. Easy to Use and Filled with Imagination.

  34. Conor Kenny-avatar

    It offers quicker info checks on new offers, that you can read on the go, or when you have spare moments while at work. Allows Pledge checks and allows you to make pledges, especially if you've missed the offer on the website. I have found no problems with this app so far. ;-)

  35. Nico-avatar

    Just love it! Dark mode is the only thing I'm missing...

  36. Cat W-avatar

    An easy to use tool for wonderful, unique offerings!!!

  37. Lesran Sosa-avatar

    Interesting projects, facilitates new ideas in innovation. Great app

  38. Brian Prisock-avatar

    I can't seem to favorite/like anything, having a hard time finding a list of projects I've backed, etc. Not very helpful. I have had the same issues on the website too using Chrome.

    Almost like the desktop experience, feels intuitive and responsive. Good way to keep up to date and follow your backed projects as well.

  40. Adam Betmalik-avatar

    Awesome app, works amazingly well with no glitches.

  41. Scott Ward-avatar

    I was late to the show but I'm glad I finally checked it out. It's a great way to support grass root artists and main stream successes all while getting kickbacks for sales success.

  42. ApexHC-avatar

    Incredibly easy to use. Simple, yet unique.

  43. Josh Ramos-avatar

    Its a great app to create and/or help create someone else's ideas!

  44. Matt Cullinan-avatar

    Great to be part of the creative process and help orhers achieve their dreams while enjoying some great products.

  45. Alexey Yudo-avatar

    It doesn't load any of the campaign subpages, neither the "campaign, nor "updates", and nor "comments", while when using web those sections load quickly. At this point I just can't see this app being any use at all

  46. Sean Schram-avatar

    Either no way to sort results (by area, etc) or I can't find it.. So, not user friendly

  47. EFlatMajor7-avatar

    I've been using the app for years, you can spend hours looking at all of the great campaigns! And I've backed quite a few!

  48. Steve Friesen-avatar

    WARNING - Kickstarter does not screen or address fraud. All project backing is considered donation. Kickstarter is transparent about this in service agreement. This means there is no support if your money is taken from a fake project. Be cautious - a project cost a bunch of us after successfully backing; no response from Kickstarter at all. You take all risk that seller pictures and updates are not scammers phishing. Kickstarter is a business not an ethical platform

    While this has some convenience, my issue is the comments. You cannot reply to someone's comment in the app and do not get notified if someone has replied to your comment. Information is easily lost because of this.

  50. Edward Forster-avatar

    Only complaint is there should be a more visible way to reach your backed pledges, as I like to keep check of ongoing projects. Everything else works perfectly as I want it.

  51. Daniel-avatar

    Great app. Easy to use and I love popping in every now and then on Kickstarter to view new projects.

  52. Tim Townsend-avatar

    The comments section needs work, but overall a good app

  53. Samuel Hedges-avatar

    My only problem with Kickstarter is the sheer amount of items i've ended up pledging for. There's so many brilliant and create people out there and feel Kickstarter is the perfect platform for it.

  54. Tommy Sikula-avatar

    It's so good, it makes the Kickstarter website feel like garbage, and the website was fine before. But now it's garbage.

  55. Dark Soul-avatar

    In the beginning when I first got this app it was amazing then one person messed it up by not pledging the product and kickstarter not helping one inch for a refund. The only bad thing about this app is trying to work with them.

  56. Janko Falli-avatar

    Was really good in 2017/2018 but lately its just a scam fest. 8 from last 10 creators just disappear, KS dont even bother to investigate/punish those people.

  57. Jesús Herrera-avatar

    The app no longer syncs the projects I backed up on my laptop using the same account. When I try to add a payment method, it always fails.

    A filter option for Saved projects to see what's ending soon would be convenient. Really great app otherwise.

  59. Ken Denk-avatar

    Never had a problem; always works smoothly.

  60. Guy Sykes-avatar

    Great place to find innovative new ideas and support the innovators behind them. Really cool to have an opportunity to provide some input to the product before it becomes mainstream.

  61. Jason Robinson-avatar

    I dont trust this site anymore. They have no customer/backer protection in place. I backed a project 5 years ago and it was funded. I still haven't recieved what was promised and it seems like the devs have given up on the project by a post a long long time ago. By the looks of all the reviews, all the backers have lost their money even up to over $500, me and others have attempted contact the creator but the creator is just ignoring everyone. Contacted kickstarter and they cant do nothing.

  62. Drew Gregory-avatar

    Great way to explore new ideas and products

  63. Corey Van Lone-avatar

    App is broken... Can't "save" projects I'm interested in, and can't even view the list of apps I've already pledged to. The Android app needs an update ASAP.

  64. Michael Knight-avatar

    Easy to navigate, save what you're interested in and easy to pledge.

  65. Victor Quarto-avatar

    Excellent app to keep up with your kickstarter investments. No glitches, no problems A++++

    I wish the comments section followed like the website though. It's very hard to see where the Creators (or other backers) are commenting on a specific comment. They just show up at the top of the page. Whereas on the website, you can clearly see what responses are to a specific comment.

  68. Emir Sky-avatar

    The app is super easy to use. I prefer it to the website to be honest.

  69. John Welborn-avatar

    Not as functional as the website. Frequently the campaigns will not load.

  70. Dan Werner-avatar

    I like this app very much and have had only good experiences with this platform "so far' fingers crossed.

  71. Ke Hester-avatar

    Makes it so easy to track projects I'm backing, and also to find new projects worth backing!

  72. Len Reinhart-avatar

    Really good. So far I haven't been scammed. It's a pretty great place to get stuff for your dnd camping. Just be careful with what you back

  78. ian neverson-avatar

  83. Vic Stapel-avatar

    Ok Unless the project does not deliver like the tiny cube to track my bag that simply went down the drain without explaining and then x other paying items appeared on the market. I am convinced these people are behind it and simply message us pay their R&D. But we were very happy with several other projects like beach socks with rubber soles and others

  84. Pride Smith-avatar

    Why are links on Kickstarter so painful to use : you click a link, it launches the app, it redirects you to your browser of choice and you get an error. Perfection ! Now I have to boot my PC just to verify if my address is correct because the summary of the response you make to the survey is only the first three lines ! As a developer, I am very impressed by the astounding quality of the user experience : having to go through all sort of redirection to get to something not working feels good :)

    Functionality is almost non existant. Try to look at any activity, backed projects, etc I get a blank screen. Try to back a project and it acts like I'm not logged in and requires me to add a card. App is completely useless at this point. I dont even get notifications for updates anymore. App was great up until the most recent update

    Some very irritating choices that aren't doing anybody any favours and end up reflecting poorly on creator professionalism. 1. You cannot select text. Forget about sharing what you like about a project, because controlling content (because its 1950) is more important than spreading the word. 2. Links only open within the app and cannot be copied. If the app cannot handle the endpoint, bully to you. 3. No zoom. Text too small? Want to detail on an image? Tough. Disabling Android basics for what?

    Really bad app, only purpose seems to be to push you on new projects and not monitoring the ones you've already backed. For example, there's no way whatsoever to get from a message from a creator to the actual projects page, instead you have to kick around like crazy, constantly exposed to "projects you might love"...
