Kickstarter is finally releasing an app for Android, launching the software on the Google Play Store today. The app will let users browse and back projects just like they do on the web, and has a number of features for spotlighting campaigns — including an activity feed combining updates on projects backed by users and by their friends. There’s no way for project creators to manage their campaigns using the app unfortunately, but Kickstarter promises this functionality is coming “soon.”
The company says the app’s launch aims to capitalize on a year of international expansion, particularly in Europe where Android tends to have a larger market share than in the US.
