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 — Take Surveys on Your Phone
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.
