- At this time you can use the link to directly download the app and install it on your mobile device, or visit the Google Play Store or the App Store to directly download and install the app on your mobile device.
- Based on your profile, demographic location the company sends out surveys when available in your area. It is difficult to say how often a survey or a location survey will arrive for you to participate in.
- It is important to keep your profile as up to date. This helps the company to send you more surveys.
- A normal survey should take you 10 to 15 minutes to complete.

What Are People Saying About this App?
- This is a nice app and the company does pay you.
- Many people like the fact the company pays you through PayPal and not just gift cards.
- There are many complaints about the app wasting people’s time. They say that you need to complete the survey to find out if you’re rewarded. A few surveys will have you fill in all the information and then tell you that you didn’t qualify.
- If you’re not a good fit for the survey it is better to tell you in the beginning and not waste your time.
- Some people have been blocked out of their account. The company will send them a new activation code. However, the app won’t accept the code. It is not possible to get back into your account.
- Some people have complained about the app locking them out when they try to claim a gift card or cash out with PayPal.
Why Will the App Blacklist Your Account?
- Some people have tried to use a proxy server or VPN to access this app.
- The app can detect this type of behavior and will blacklist the account.
- Other times the app has determined the person isn’t in the same location that they registered with. This will cause the app to have a problem and it will lock your account. In this type of case you’ll need to contact the company and they can unlock your account.
- Other people have changed their mobile device and the app doesn’t recognize the device they are now using.
This app has many issues and the people using the app have only given it a 3.5 rating. The app seems to lock you out or blacklist your account when you try to cash out with PayPal or request your gift card. Other people find it hard to take the surveys because nothing is offered in their location. Most people who are using this app are having difficulties cashing our and redeeming the money they’ve earned.
The app has a very low trust rating and a number of problems associated with its use. People are not happy with working on the app and not being paid. I personally would not recommend this app for anyone to try. Unless the company can fix the issues they are having now and send out the gift cards or payment to PayPal I wouldn’t waste my time.
It is hard to actually verify all the complaints from people. Many people try to work on the website and not through their mobile device. They will try to use a proxy server or VPN to block their real location.
If you’d like to try working for this company, precede with caution. This could be a company that won’t actually pay you. However, many people have claimed they’ve been paid by this company.
