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).

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 seems to have problems with the new Kickstarter update. Where the title of the project should be says "waiting for update..." & wont search for ANY projects. All its doing is keeping up with funding totals. As of 12-4-14.

    I have a lot of low level pledges going at a time, and I've found this app invaluable for keeping track of them all and seeing which ones are likely to succeed. My only wish is that the app issued push notifications for when a funding period is ending soon; as it is, I have to use my calendar for that.

    I bought this bc viewing the site means an hour load for anything past the first 10 items... this does the same. Make it load better, more optimized for Mobile and we'll talk.

    This is the app I have been looking for. Well worth the buck. A few feature requests would really knock it out of the park, though. 1. Please add an option to turn off the notification icon. 2. Add alerts (when background updating is on) when a campaign reaches their funding goal, is about to end, and ends. 3. Add the ability to share the campaign URL from the campaign list. 4.
