As long rumored, Kickstarter has announced a new app for iPhone and iPod Touch. You can download it here.
According to the Kickstarter folks, the app includes improvements in finding and following projects, based on their real-time experiences over the last three years. The app makes it easier to browse projects and you can back them right from the app. New creator tools include pledge notifications, stats, and the ability tp update the project directly from a phone. Social features allow you to see who your friends are supporting and so on.
We haven’t had a chance to play around with it yet, but so far it looks very “discoverable.”
