    I just found one called Mobile Rewards 4/5 stars.
    And Apprewards no longer works

  2. Dana says:

    Thanks for the list. I knew about Shopkick but need to check out the others. Some of the rewards do not justify the effort though…

  15. Quinn says:

    Thanks. I’m looking forward to using some of these to earn a little extra money on my phone. Why not. I use it all the time anyway. Might as well make a few bucks while I’m at it.

  16. Jan says:

    Are there anymore than these 10 Phone Apps out there? I’m wondering if it’s possible to make a full time income from just phone apps. I know that’s probably not realistic, but I would like to try and get as close as I can.

  17. Erin says:

    FeaturePoints is such a scam though. If you’re inactive for too long, your points expire. You don’t even get a warning. It’s also really buggy. A third of the games I tried either gave me less points than what was promised or none at all.

    Don’t bother with FeaturePoints.

  18. Sam says:

    I bought the $10 iTunes gift card with futurepoints because I thought that it would be worth in considering it was on sale.. I have waited 48 hrs like I was told to but there is no sight of it anywhere even my spam folder! Please try ur best to get me a refund because I put good time into this app just so I could get myself the $10 iTunes card. You said that you will reply to me but u never did. I really like this app and I am a very valuable customer. I recommended this app to all my friends. Please help
