Add this app to your lists
Give your refresh key a well deserved rest! Kickstarter Mobile provides a convenient method of quickly checking up on the progress of Kickstarter projects. It allows you to track multiple Kickstarter projects on a self updating list right on your mobile device. Add projects you're interested in from the Kickstarter web site, and stay up to date on it's progress.

How to use Kickstarter Mobile
===================================================
When you first load the app you will see a white screen. This is the home screen where the list of projects you setup to be tracked will be listed. It is empty on a fresh install.

All the programs functionality buttons are on the action bar and in the menu. Remember to press the MENU button if your device has a hardware menu button to see all the buttons.

There are 3 ways to add projects to this list:

1 - Sync to you profile: This adds all the projects you are backing to your list in one button click.

2 - Browse for projects: This lets your browse the entire kickstarter project database by category.

3 - Search: If you know the name of the project you want to add, use the search function to search for the project name. Select the project you then want to add and choose "Add Project"
===================================================

How to use the statistics graphing
**********************************
When you first add a new project to your list the statistical data will not be accurate yet. The graphs will also look fairly empty. This is because there are only data points for one day.

The graphs and estimation fields will populate with more accurate data each day data is collected (refreshing the list).

FAQ
==============

Q: My profile won't sync
A: Make sure you are only inputting the vanity or ID part of your profile URL(address). If your profile URL is http://www.kickstarter.com/profile/rhaith then just type in rhaith. Typing in the whole URL will not work.

This application is not an alternate mobile interface for the Kickstarter website.
It is a means of quickly and conveniently tracking project progress.

    App works great not very user friendly but once your set up I would like the ability to see started projects and check on funded projects or message the project creator other than that it's great

    This app mostly serves as a fancy way of launching your browser to link to a project's webpage on Kickstarter, and they're charging for this app? Makes no sense. Contrary to the developers thoughts, I didn't purchase the app "blindly". But anyone would expect the app to show all project details and content without it having to launch a web browser, otherwise, what's the point of the app? Just save

    The last update broke several of my URLs, but given the new stability I can accept that. I do however recommend further testing before pushing updates. Just one day to add/update projects, folowing all links, then leaving it in the background would do wonders. Automatic testing is not always a proper replacement...

    Even when it says it's updated, half my projects refuse to load. It's impossible to close this app, and in the space of a few hours it crashed repeatedly. Uninstalled.
