Users looking for a project to support can browse by category and also tailor results based on their location. In addition, the Kickstarter app allows users to watch videos and contribute to projects through the app.

The Kickstarter app also boasts an "Activity" tab, which collects project updates from initiatives users are backing. New updates will stream in once they are posted by creators. The app also includes social features, allowing users to find Facebook friends and receive notifications when they fund or launch a project.

Lastly, the Kickstarter app features support for creators, notifying them of new pledges in real time. In addition, creators can track their project's progress and share pictures and videos from the iPhone or iPod Touch.

The Kickstarter app was not announced for Android devices, though a representative from the company said, "We're really just focused on this app for iPhone now."
