Kickstarter is a crowdfunding platform that has successfully funded thousands of campaigns across the globe. It even poses a threat to other crowdfunding platforms like Head funder and Indiegogo. It is an American based crowdfunding platform found by Yancey Strickler in 2009. It is the right place for every fundraiser to collect funds for the organizational and nonprofit campaigns. It is one of the successful crowdfunding platforms and it is worth $2 billion in pledges.
According to statistics, not every Kickstarter campaign would reach its goal because more than half of them flop miserably. Many successful campaigns like ALS ice bucket challenges have gone viral across the web. Kickstarter has even taken steps to provide security to avoid fraudsters who loot money off the donors and then fail to exhibit the campaign. The team has also worked on something to offer its service to mobile users as well.
Great news is that Kickstarter will soon be releasing its own app to the android users. It is absolutely free and it has even caused a wider reach to people across the globe. The android app looks very user friendly and sleek with no big issues and it has already got good responses from the critics. Nevertheless, Kickstarter’s new feature has benefited fundraisers and made it a lot easier for them. They can now keep a track of their campaigns with the help of their android mobile devices and it is as simple as that!
