Maybe you've fallen for the "answer surveys to earn cash" scam once to often, and this one might not seem legitimate. However, bear in mind that this is Google — the company that doesn't have to trick you to get your information. Google Opinion Rewards has been available to Android users for several years, and now it's arrived on iPhone. It truly is the app that pays you to use it. Let's take a look.
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.
Google is always trying to get more information about us, which some say is a bad thing and others agree that it's just the nature of the society we live in — in an information age, gathering details about members of society is key.
This time, though, Google's gathering that information through the use of tiny surveys that it pays you to complete. Whenever a new survey is available, you just open the app and let your taps earn you money.
The surveys are short and typically to the point, often used to help Google figure out how it can improve its products and services. Most of them take less than a minute to complete, so they aren't going to pay you much money.
In fact, the ones I've completed have all paid less than a dollar, but every penny adds up. When you accrue at least $2, you can cash out via PayPal or other methods.
The app that pays you to use 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.
If you're looking for a get rich quick app, this isn't it. However, if you want to make 15 cents to a dollar a day for just a minute of your time, Google Opinion Rewards is a good way to do it. Download it, try it out, and see how well it works for you.
