What is it about?
It's quick, it's easy, and it's an app that really pays you to use it. Google Opinion Rewards has been insanely popular on Android for years, and it's a welcome arrival on the iPhone.
Why we love it
It's nice to be able to make a little bit of extra money without any real effort. The surveys offered through Google Opinion Rewards are short and don't take too much brainpower to answer. In my area, the app only provides me with about one survey per day. However, it asks for location services access, allowing it to provide targeted surveys for other geographic locations. The fact that Google is paying for this information is quite interesting, considering how much data the company can probably gather from us without our knowledge. It's nice to see real payouts for such short, easy-to-answer questionnaires. I doubt anybody will ever get rich from Google Opinion Rewards, but it's certainly a simple and painless way to pick up some spare change to save for a rainy day or special purchase.
