Kickstarter Gets an App

Publishing projects on Kickstarter have a new set of tools as the company unveiled its new Kickstarter app.

As you can see, creators will have metrics and posting tools inside the app. Using the tool, you can upload video and picture updates directly to Kickstarter. AppNewser has more:

The popular social fundraising site Kickstarter has gone mobile with the launch of its first app. The iOS app lets backers browse projects by category and popularity and if you find something you like, you can back a project. The app supports videos, so you can watch project videos. It also taps into your GPS so that you can search for projects near your location.

Check out our Kickstarter Project of the Week feature to get more ideas about how to use the site for publishing work.
