This year Kickstarter may have given us the best Valentine’s gift ever, Kickstarter for iPhone and iPad. An afternoon Kickstarter binge is one of our favorite past times at Brit + Co., so we couldn’t be more pumped about the app. Now you can discover, follow, and create new projects right from your mobile phone.

Mobile filtering makes it easy to get lost in amazing projects on your phone. You can filter by Staff Picks or Popular projects. If you prefer to see all projects within a specific category, just filter by “Music, Comics, Fashion, etc.” Who knew there were hundreds of incredible art projects looking for funding on Kickstarter? For all you local lovers, you can even filter by projects near you.

The best part of Kickstarter comes after you’ve funded a projected, when you watch it grow and evolve. The app’s activity tab is a the best way to stay up-to-date on all the Kickstarter projects you’ve already funded. The activity tab also lets you know what projects your friends are funding.

As a project creator, you can use the Kickstarter app to stay more closely connected with the people who are funding your project. Share updates and photos to your project page directly from your phone. You can also track the progress of your funding by getting alerts each time you receive a pledge.

What do you think of the new Kickstarter app? Have you had a chance to play with it, or even pledge to a project on mobile?
