ApperWall Review: Earn Free Cash For Reviewing Smartphone Apps

ApperWall Review: Earn Free Cash For Reviewing Smartphone Apps

Want to Earn Some Extra Money?

Apperwall is a new rewards program that pays you to download apps and review them. The cost? It’s absolutely free, and you don’t have to pay for any of the apps. Earn a couple of dollars for just a few minutes of your time.

What Is Apperwall?

Apperwall is a free rewards program that pays you to install apps and review them once you get a chance testing them out. They best part about this program is that it’s available all across the world, so it doesn’t matter which country you’re living in.

All the apps that are available will be completely free. If you ever run across an app that isn’t free, Apperwall will reimburse you when they verify your review. When you do leave a review, be sure to be honest and direct about what you liked and disliked about the app.

If Apperwall ever feels that your reviews are too short or inadequate, you risk your account getting suspended or banned permanently. Most reviews need to be a minimum of 3-4 sentences long. However, we suggest making them a tad longer in order to be able to continue leaving reviews. The more apps you review, the more offers you’ll receive.

Apperwall is available for both iOS and Android devices. When you log-in, they will detect which device you are using and give you the appropriate offers that are currently available. Be sure to download apps as soon as possible, as there is a possibility that they can go away after a while.

The reason Apperwall is able to pay you to review apps is because developers need a way to get their apps seen by the public. Offering an incentive is the quickest way to do this. Each time a review is left, app developers pay a certain amount of money and a portion of it is given to you in return. If you’re a developer and want to market your app, you can contact the Apperwall team and place your app on their list.

How Much Can I Make With Apperwall?

Apperwall claims that you can earn anywhere from $.50 – $3.50 for one review depending on the country that you’re located in. Yet after browsing through their first few offers while being in the US, we found that the minimum amount is about $.30 cents.

Don’t be dissuaded by this amount as payouts will continue to increase the more you leave reviews. Not only that, but the amount of offers available for download will also go up.

The first time I logged-in using my iPhone, there were 3 apps available for download netting me roughly $1 in earnings. This all took about 5 minutes to complete, so it was exciting to learn that you could be making the same rate as roughly $12 per hour reviewing apps.

Earn More Referring A Friend

Each time you refer a friend that signs-up using your referral link, you earn 10% of whatever they earn. Keep in mind that this does not detract from their earnings. If you’d like to support FFL, you can use your referral link here. We’d greatly appreciate it!

How Do I Get Started With Apperwall?

Although registering for Apperwall is incredibly simple, we’re going to walk you through it in detail. You can do this in just easy steps.

1. Register.

You can register for a free Apperwall account by clicking this link here. You’ll need to use either a Facebook, Google+ or VK social media account to register.

2. Pick an offer.

Once you log-in, select from one of the available app offers. For my first time there were 3 offers available. Be sure to snag up offers quickly as it is possible that they may go away after a while.

3. Review the app.

After testing the app, leave your honest review. This typically includes what you like and dislike about the app and whether you would recommend it to a friend. There’s no punishment for leaving a negative review. If your review is inadequate, Apperwall will contact you and tell you how you can improve. There’s no need to write any more than 5 sentences when leaving a review. However, if you want to be more detailed, it’s not going to hurt you.

4. Get paid.

The one thing I love about Apperwall is that they give you cash immedaitely after they verify your review. There’s no minimum amount that you need to cash out. At this time, they only do PayPal transfers. It typically takes about 24 hours for a review to go through their verification process.

5. Refer friends.

One of the quickest ways to increase your earnings is to tell your friends and convince them how great Apperwall is. A great way to spread the word is via social media, such as posting a quick status update to Facebook. You get 10% of all of your friends’ earnings. Keep in mind that this 10% is not detracted from their account. If you’d like to support FFL, you can use our referral link. Thank you!

What Are Other Programs That Pay You To Review Apps?

The concept of reviewing mobile apps for cash is not a new one. We’re going to quickly introduce you to three different ones so you can increase your earnings even further.


MyAppAware is one of the most popular app review rewards programs out there. If you have to choose between any of the three on this list, let it be this one. They usually have a ton of offers, and they never fail to payout on time. Not only that, but it will be a surprise to find out that most of their apps pay anywhere from $.50 cents to $4. Refer friends and get an additional $1 in your account after they leave their first review.

Although AppWinn isn’t as popular as MyAppAware, they will still make a great addition to your app review rewards programs. They payout is quite well, and we even calculated the hourly earnings to be roughly $12 per hour. However, the amount of offers available is quite small. Right now they are currently down, but be sure to check their site frequently for updates, especially since they’ve already announced that this is temporary.

Best Review App

Best Review App is actually a mobile app that pays you to review apps. It’s available for international users as well as both Android and iPhone devices. Reviews need to be at least 40 words in length without a payout structure of $.50 cents per review. If you need to pay money to download the app, they will reimburse you immedaitely. The amount of offers available varies.

Final Thoughts

Even though reviewing cell phone apps isn’t the most exciting task, it it incredibly helpful for discovering new programs while at the same time receiving cash for it. This is great for those who are looking for work or just want a way to supplement their current income. If you’ve tried Apperwall or any other rewards programs that pay you for reviews, let us know in the comments down below – questions are also welcome. Thanks for reading and happy frugaling!

So I created a way to make 25,000$ a year in passive income, mostly through ways described in this blog (thanks much)

but the thing is my pc isn’t good enough to run even ONE tab of earnhoney for example, 24/7

To get the PC I need I’m going with a 2000$ build. But I have no current way of earning money and as I cannot do any of the methods I have yet, I’m kinda stuck. I have 4 months. Do you know of any ways to make 2000$ in 4 months? (or 500 a month)
