App Store Reviews
Zephiera, 4 stars:
I picked up this app because a friend was doing a Kickstarter project... Big mistake! I'm slowly going broke because I'm turning into a Kickstarter addict. :-) And what's worse, is I've been corrupting friends and family into become K-addicts as well.....
Seriously though, this is a great app. I'd give it five stars but there are a few more things it needs before it's perfect. First, it needs to be optimized for iPad use. Next, the 'sort options' need to be expanded to allow you to sort by most recent, not just "staff picks", "popular", "starred" (projects you've tagged), and "nearby".
Very nice app, but it's display is a drawback. Where is the Universal or iPad version? It's been more than a year now...Time to expand/update Devs. It would make things so much easier to navigate and find when trying to "back" projects.
