For the first time in a little more than two months, the official Kickstarter iPhone app has been updated. Version 1.2 of the app brings a slate of new features while squashing one problematic bug. Users can finally fill out project surveys directly from the app, which is a very nice addition to the iPhone experience. The individual project pages have also been revamped. Sharing a project with friends is now much easier, and users can also discover new projects by tapping the category or location button. In the messages part of the app, users can now open a project and view pledge information from within a message. Finally, the update squashes the bug that caused blank updates when opening push notifications. Kickstarter is a free app designed for the iPhone/iPod touch. It can be downloaded in the App Store now for free. While I like the Kickstarter app, I still seem to gravitate to the site more often than the iPhone app. Hopefully, we’ll see an iPad version of the app sooner rather than later. It was first released back in February. Along with offering some nice features for project backers, the app also allows creators to post project updates directly from their iOS device.
