Kickstarter acknowledges that you shop from your phone with an iOS app of its own

Zach Honig

With 40 billion App Store downloads and counting, if you haven't already carved out your own little piece of mobile magic, it's time to get crackin'. Kickstarter, the biggest name in crowdfunding, might be a bit late to the game, but its lack of presence in Apple's mobile shop ends today, with Kickstarter for iPhone. As you might expect, the smartphone-native version of the popular site's online store lets you browse through projects, watch pitch videos and submit a pledge just like you do on the web, but with a much less cumbersome interface. Project creators can also use it to track their own progress, or to post updates on the go. Kickstarter is compatible with iPhone 3GS and later, third-gen iPod touch devices and iPad, though it's optimized for iPhone 5, so tablet users may want to stick with the website for now. The rest of you can hit up our source link to get started -- the app just hit today.
