For some of you, the news that Kickstarter finally launched an Android app will come as a bit of a surprise. If you haphazardly visit the crowd-funding service site, you probably didn’t even know there wasn’t an app despite there being one for iPhone users for a couple of years now. Frequent visitors, like me, have felt the pain of not having a dedicated app because it meant that if I wanted to go check out some new projects and potentially help fund them, I was relegated to my browser.
The new app is now available in the Google Play Store and even though it is a 1.0 release, Kickstarter did a great job on the app overall. You can search for projects to support in a wide range of categories and you can fund a project right from within the app itself.
