S’more App Review: Is It Legit? Make Money by Doing Nothing

s'more app review

There are tons of smartphone apps out there that will pay you for doing various things. In the S’more app review, you will discover a way to make money by doing basically nothing.

S’more App — How it Works

The S’more app is an Android app that, when installed, displays ads on your lockscreen. When you turn on your phone’s display, instead of the usual lockscreen with notifications, you will see a full-screen ad. You simply swipe up from the bottom to remove the ad.

Every day that you use S’more, you will earn 10 points, which equals 10 cents. You don’t have to click on any of the ads; you will be paid just for using the app. The points will be added to your account at the beginning of the next day.

Look at the screenshot to see an ad that showed up on my lockscreen. (Note: I live outside New York City and I’m NOT trying to make a political statement! The ad is showing because I live nearby.)

When you sign up, you will get a 50 cent bonus. After 10 days of earning points, you can cash out, starting at $1.50. You can get gift cards or cash via Paypal.

Another way to get extra points is by referring friends. If friends use your referral code when they sign up, both of you will earn an extra 25 cents.

S’more also has surveys that you can take, which are powered by Peanut Labs. Now, I usually don’t recommend that you take surveys, because they generally pay very low and aren’t worth your time. As you can see on the right, almost all the surveys that were available to me pay just 43 cents, and they take between 10 and 30 minutes.

However, since this is all being done on your phone, things are a little different. Most people waste so much time on their phones anyway — watching Youtube, binging on Netflix, chatting on Whatsapp, and reading the news. If you really have nothing to do, you might as well earn some extra money in that time.

As far as I know, this app is only available for Android devices, not on iOS or a Windows phone

So, Is the S’more App Legit? Can It Really Be True?

This is definitely a great way to earn some extra cash. Granted, it’s only 10 cents a day, which is around $3 a month. However, you’re making money by doing things you’ve already been doing. Your phone probably has a lockscreen with notifications anyway. You’ll be swiping up to open your display in any case, so who cares if it’s notifications that are showing or ads?

I find that it’s pretty easy to swipe up and open the display with S’more, unlike other apps that are much more difficult.

    A lot of these apps have come and gone. I used to use S’more but uninstalled because the cash rewards weren’t enough. Fronto and Slidejoy started out strong but they slow down over time. Adme has been the only consistent payout and definitely the highest amongst all of these apps that I’ve seen.

      Hi Chris!

      I don’t think I ever used Adme, got to try it out 🙂

      And yes, S’more has less earning potential than other apps..$3 a month is not a lot.

      Thanks for stopping by!

    Legit!! I just started and I racked off enough about 500pts by doing surveys and everyday 10pts. Well I was hesitant at first but I figure what the hell I opt out to get my gift card and I chose amazon which I got 5 dollars woohoo, so I had bought something worth 9.99 and it took off 5bucks! Oh yeah! So practically doing nothing while getting paid a few bucks is good for me! I’m just doing surveys on my free time, surveys are tricky though, if you chose answers a bunch of answers, they may let you continue it or say something like, sorry but you don’t qualify for the survey but they give you 2pts for trying, and your limited on surveys a day just FYI

    One concern I have is their page… I was looking into it more and out of 60 something comments there are only actually TWO visible on their advertisement post. And both are advertisement comments. Appears everything else was deleted. Some comments to the page are the same thing – deleted comments/posts. This really makes me cautious with this app as someone is having issues receiving their payment and verifying it and the customer support hasn’t helped them in over a month with the issue… Seems a bit fishy? Maybe you have some insight to this though, I hope?

      Might I also add, LOTS of angry emotes/reactions to their adverts which is why I was looking more into it before download.. Just seems like there’s some cause for concern 🙁

        Hi Tori!

        I don’t know — When you look at Google Play, it currently has an average 4-star rating from over 3,000 reviews. That’s pretty good. And when you look at the negative reviews, most of them are about the surveys. As I mentioned above, online surveys are a waste of time and are not recommended. In addition, S’more has been very responsive to almost each negative review and tried to resolve the issues.

        So I’m nost sure which “page” you are referring to. Can you be more clear?

        By the way, I’m not promoting S’more or anything — I already uninstalled their app and I’m not using them anymore, simply because I am already using BoostDealz, an app that gives you credit on your Boost Mobile phone account for the exact same thing. I’m just reporting what I see, and that is an average 4-star rating on Google Play.

    interesting read. literally get paid by doing nothing other than swiping away ads. Good concept. Like you said, if you have time on your hands, this is a great way to spend your time. How new/old is this app? And why isnt it for iphones?

      Hi Ilario!

      I don’t know how old it is, but I think it’s not as old as some similar apps. There are actually many lockscreen/advertisement apps for Android that pay you, but I couldn’t find any of them on iTunes! It probably has something to do with Apple’s operating system, not with S’more or the apps themselves.

      Thanks for stopping by,

    Great. But how secure is this app. Does it post any risk to data in my phone? Even if it doesn’t I’m not sure if it works in my country. How do I download the app? It’s not in Playstore.

      Hi Kenny!

      I don’t think it collects any personal data. It bases some of your ads on your location, but I don’t think it collects your browsing info. Before you install ANY app, you should take a look at its permissions, especially if you’re afraid of these types of things.

      I think it only works in the United States, so that may be why it doesn’t appear in your Google Play store.

        Well of course it collects your personal data. Everything you do on your phone is collected and analyze to target you for the best ads. And surveys that match you. You even allowed it to send a text message from your phone in the setup and verification process…..this essentially allows the app access to your text messages and its contents.

          Hi Kyle,

          Yeah, you’re probably right. I assume they do track your browsing activity to be able to show you ads.

          Lots of app do that — take TuneIn radio, for example. You’ll see ads that are based on your browsing activity.

          Hopefully, they keep your data aggregated and safe, but they only way to be really safe is to use a flip phone, and that’s not really possible these days.

          Thanks for stopping by!

    Interesting article. I really had no idea that they made apps for making money online. I am always on the lookout for ways to earn extra money online and this seems like a pretty easy one. Do you know if there is an option to see your standard notifications as well as the ads? Or will you only see the ads? Thanks for the info and keep up the good work.

      Hey Patrick!

      Yes, there are tons of apps where you can make money, in all different ways. I hope to do more reviews on these types of things going forward.

      I don’t think you can keep your regular notifications as well, because the ad takes up the entire screen. But what you can do is swipe down from the top and view your notifications OVER the ad. You can then click on the notifications and bypass the ad.

      Thanks for stopping by!
