In a move that took a surprisingly long time, Kickstarter has released an official app for the iPhone and iPod touch devices. The new app is available from the Apple App Store and will allow users to keep up with the latest projects, pledge support, and allow developers to keep in contact with contributors.

The app is a whole new way to experience Kickstarter. We took things we've learned from the past three years of building the site, and applied them to a total redesign for the iPhone. We redesigned the project page, browse pages, and others. And we focused on making three things really useful and fun: finding new projects, keeping up to date with projects you've backed, and offering great tools for creators.

You can find more information about the app from the company's blog post published today. There is no word on when an app could be coming to the iPad or Android platforms, though I would assume they aren't too far behind.
