It’s Valentine’s Day and what better way for a crowdfunding site to show its love for you than release an iOS app? The new app will go live on iTunes shortly and allows users to follow their funded projects and search for new projects from the comfort of their iOS device. No word on an Android version yet.

“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,” wrote Kickstarter co-founder and head of communications, Yancey Strickler.

The app allows you to find and fund projects on your mobile and browse projects based on popularity and category. You can also follow the projects you’ve funded once you’ve logged in using your Kickstarter account.

It also allows project creators to manage their pages and notifies creators when they get pledges. You can even upload video straight to your project while on the road. The app, built by Brandon Williams and Andrew Cornett, is available today.
