As popular as Kickstarter is their mobile interface is lacking and there’s no official app which is kind of funny all things considered. If you browse the site a lot you’ll definitely want to check out Kickstalker Kickstarter Client from TGM. The app is a work in progress but already you’ll be able to access details on projects, stalk creators and people who’ve commented on backed projects, and “star” projects. It even has a basic widget for specific projects… nice start dev. The Kickstalker Kickstarter Client is free to download on Google Play.

Safety is a key issue to a lot of parents and families these days, especially keeping track of the kids. Family by Sygic can assist you with that as it uses that magic called a GPS to allow you to see where family members are and can send and SOS if needed. You can setup Geofence’s, alerts if they go somewhere they shouldn’t be, and check-ins to let people know where you are. I haven’t tried this one out yet, but will be giving it a full review as soon as I can borrow some of my friends’ kids.

You’ll also get info on the latest products and access to contests where you can win cool swag. People have reported having issues with the app and I did as well, but things have straightened out for me since and it runs well now. If you want to give it a go you can pick up the Intel VIP Tech Zone app for free on Google Play.
Talking Nibbler is a talking character app that lets you play around with a Gremlin like creature with a quirky voice. Nothing groundbreaking as we see these types of apps frequently, but we’ll admit Nibbler is cute and quite a bit of fun to play with. The app does use a lot of permissions, but nothing too sinister according to good ol’ Appbrain. Talking Nibbler is free to download on Google Play.
