New Extra Money App – Locket
Someone at Locket emailed me several weeks ago, wanting me to share the info about their extra money Android app. Granted this one isn’t going to make you much, but I personally enjoy these little extra money apps. I’ve got several installed and try to use them when I think of it. However, Locket is exclusively for Android users so if you only have an Apple product (like me), then you’re out of luck for now. Maybe at some point in the future this will be available for Apple users, too.
Locket is currently only available to people in the US.
How Locket WorksThis one is very, very easy to use. If you install Locket, your lock screen will have an ad on it instead of a background image. When you swipe with your fingers to unlock your lock screen, you get paid. So basically you are getting paid for simply unlocking your phone! So simple.
Earning MoneyYou will only be earning somewhere around one cent per ad swipe with Locket, which doesn’t sound like much. But if you think about how many times you probably unlock your phone throughout the day, this could add up. Locket also has a cap in place that prevents you from earning more than three cents each hour. I guess this keeps people from gaming their system. I also read in the Locket FAQ that sometimes they give out random bonuses.
In addition to getting paid cash, you also have options for receiving gift cards instead or donating your earnings to charity.
