Our cell phone is good for many things, also to gather a small fortune. At least we could wait if we go to the Android store and see the huge number of applications that promise to make money. However, we should not let ourselves be carried away by greed, because to get a couple of euros we will have a lot of headaches.

Download, try and collect coins

With a simple search on Google Play We can find many alternatives. Some more updated and others use their own tricks to retain the user.

Almost all applications offer you nothing else to start a small reward in the form of coins. With this they get the user does not start from scratch and is somewhat closer to the real goal of entering money.

At the beginning of the application they ask us to accept privacy policies and register, in fact if we link our account with the social networks will provide us with higher bonuses and start coins.

How do you earn money? It can be from watching videos, inviting people, downloading applications, registering in other sites or even simply by reopening the application after a few days. The important thing is to enter the application's reward ecosystem and not stop clicking on all the options offered to earn points.

These points or coins will be what we will need to finally exchange them for gift cards Paypal, Amazon, ebay or the same Google Play. To give you an idea of ​​how much it costs to get five euros I have made several approximate calculations.

The goal is about 5600 points for € 5. At first everything is going very well and it is easy to earn up to 700 points in a few minutes, but once sold the most succulent main options costs more and you have to either register for paid applications, watch advertising videos or download games random and level up in them.

For each installed game are 40 points (you would have to install 140 games to get to € 5), to see a video of 25 seconds only two. If we spent an hour watching videos we would get 0.4 euros. The truth is that you will lose less time looking for a job than getting € 5 in an application of these.


Advertisers are the same and only want your data

One of the easiest ways to get points, whatever the application, is to register in the sites that ask you. Normally they give you a trial period of seven days, but the idea is that the registration is made with your credit card associated with Google Play. If we are easy to click and subscribe to all places, we better remember to unsubscribe after a few days before they charge us for the service and then the possible profits become losses.

Our Data will end up registered in a thousand places but it happens that all applications have similar recommendations. This is because advertisers work at the same time with any application. They do not care where the user comes from, the only thing they are looking for is a click, a download. The applications receive a small commission for each click and precisely this commission is where a small part is what is going to stop us.

I miss more variety and more successful applications. I'm not interested in downloading the Real Madrid application or playing Lords Mobile, much less keeping them on my mobile phone for several days, as the rewards in most cases require keeping the game installed.


Ads everywhere that slow down the mobile

Another method to earn money is to install applications such as SlideJoy or Whaff Locket. It consists of adding to the screen of blocking advertising with the option to click on it or unlock the mobile. Eye, because for the simple act of unlockingthey will not give us points and we will have to access what they propose.
The unlock screen, the notifications bar or even floating windows that occupy the middle of the desktop, all Android gaps can be used for these applications to insert advertising. This in turn causes the mobile to start to go like a turtle on Tuesday because it substantially loads the RAM of applications in the background.


What is the cause of its popularity?

If so many problems occur, why are they so downloaded? Well, we all want to expand our portfolio and it is normal that we try to take advantage of the mobile phone to do it, especially if we also have a lot of free time.

The developers of these applications know this and they also try to create the effect called . In all the possibility of creating a referral link is offered so that if another user registers through it we will charge a percentage in points with respect to what he does. Techniques that almost remind me of a pyramid scam, but on the internet are widespread.

The promise of more money is what moves many people to recommend these applications


Alternatives

There are some cases like Playfullbet or Google Rewards that do allow you to amass a mini fortune based on your usual use.

In the first case we have an online betting house but initially only manages virtual currencies of the application itself. If we get enough money we can exchange them for physical money, although if we neglect and end up challenging ourselves with the application, we will be the ones who put our money.

The second case comes from Google itself. Rewards is an application that through surveys give us the balance to spend in the Play Store. It is light and fast but it is not up to us the number of available surveys. Here are our data and privacy at stake, since Google will use these answers to improve their services and refine their accuracy.


Conclusion

< p> My conclusion is clear: I prefer to remain poor but enjoy my mobile more. If you still want to install any of these applications, we recommend patience to try every so often only the games that really get your attention, click on videos when you are very bored and only recommend directly to those people that you know could. get to use these applications. In my case I'm not one of them.
