Indiegogo’s iOS App Goes Global, Android App on the WayBy: Josh Wolford - July 31, 2014
Crowdfunding company Indiegogo has just joined the ranks of those with a native iOS app, launching the new version Thursday morning. The app was first launched about a month ago in Canada only – but with today’s worldwide launch, we can finally say that Indiegogo has a real app.
The app lets you browse and save campaigns, claim campaign perks, and also features recommendations that help “surface popular and emerging campaigns in your preferred categories.” On the other side of the crowdfunding coin, project creators have access to campaign tracking and management tools.
“This year has been one of tremendous growth for us and we’re investing heavily to continue improving Indiegogo for mobile users globally. The Indiegogo App is the first of many advancements focused on delivering the best mobile experience imaginable,” says Indiegogo CEO Slava Rubin.
Rival Kickstarter has had a global app for about a year and a half.
Indiegogo doesn’t want Android users to think they’ve been forgotten. The company is working on it.
“Android app is in flight! We know that many of our funders and campaigners are on Android – ourselves included! We’re excited to bring our platform to Android devices everywhere.”
Exact timing is unclear, but it shouldn’t be that long of a wait.
Indiegogo boasts over 200,000 total campaigns, 7,000 of which are active at any given time. Over the past two years, there’s been a 1,000 percent increase in funds raised on the site.
