Kickstarter's official app hits version 2.0 with new design and iPad support

Kickstarter's official app for iOS has hit version 2.0, bringing a few updates to the design. The app now also has full iPad support, letting you track your favorite projects and join new ones no matter what device you're using.

While the project page design remains the same, Kickstarter has added a new way to view projects, presenting them as cards. Tapping the title in the top left of the screen in the overview will give you different sections to view, such as Staff Picks, Starred, and Everything. You can also choose a category. Projects can then be sorted by "Magic", popularity, most recent, those ending soon, and the most well-funded. After selecting the project you want to see, you can navigate to other by swiping. To return to the overview, just pinch the screen.

Kickstarter 2.0 is now available for download from the App Store.
