Is it really possible to get paid real money just to download apps with Appman? Is Appman legit? Or could this be another scam that is just going to waste your time with little to no reward?
I have reviewed Appman and I can assure you that it is not a scam. It is legitimate. However….. this doesn’t mean you should sign up and start downloading apps like crazy. There are a few things that you should know that I will be going over in this review.
- Name: Appman
- Availability: Google Play for Android devices & appman.io for IOS devices
- Cost: Free
- Recommended?: More on this at the end
AppMan is an app that rewards you for downloading other apps. Its a pretty unique and interesting way to make a little cash. There are several other sites that will pay you to download apps too, like GrabPoints and FeaturePoints, but there aren’t all that many.
How it works is that app creators pay AppMan to promote their app, and AppMan then pays people like you and I a small amount of money as some incentive to download the apps.
It is available for both Apple and Android devices. You can download AppMan directly at Google Play, but for Apple users you are going to have to go to appman.io to download it.
How It Works
After downloading the app you can then open it up and view app offers. These offers include all sorts of apps… game apps, cashback shopping apps, lottery apps, health apps, and the list goes on and on.
Beside each app you will see a +(number of points). For example you can see the first app on that shows up in the offers section (picture on the right) says +850.
That means that you will get 850 points for downloading the app.
These points don’t really have any value until you actually exchange them for real money, which I will get into in a second.
Below the first number you will see another number with the + sign in front of it. That number is the amount of points you get when one of your friends downloads an app and I will be going over that shortly.
When you click on an app to download it will direct you to the Apple Store of Google Play, depending on what device you are using.
Once you download the app you must keep it open for at least 1 minute to get credit for the download. After you get credit you can delete it or keep it if you want to.
How Much Can You Make?
The answer is not much.
To really answer this question you have to look at how much a point is actually worth. Because after you get your points you are able to redeem them for gift cards that have real value.
From what I have seen offered the earliest you can redeem your points is when you have 800. And this will get you a $1 gift card.
And that is the norm. 800 points = $1.
Sometimes however gift cards will go on sale and you will be able to get them for less points, but normally it is 800 pts = $1.
And generally downloading a single app will make you anywhere from 300 – 900 points. So you could say that with each app downloaded you will make about $0.50 – $1.00
The problem is that there isn’t an endless supply of apps. When you first join you might have 5-15 apps that you can download to make money with, but after that you will only get maybe 5 or so a day.
Besides downloading apps on your own, AppMan also has a referral program where you can get points from your referrals.
For each person that you refer to AppMan, you will get 50% of what they make when they download an app. This will be credited to your account and will not affect how much they make.
If you want to earn as much as possible with this app then you are going to have to be a referral machine and bring in as many people as possible.
What Rewards Are Available?
Gift cards, as mentioned above, are the main choice that you have. They start out at as low as $1. You can get gift cards for iTunes, Amazon, Google Play and some others.
You can also cash your points out via PayPal once you reach $15 worth.
Lack Of Opportunity
People use AppMan to make money. But unfortunately there isn’t too much to be made. You could make a decent wage if there were endless apps to download, but there just aren’t.
Doesn’t Give Points
There are quite a few reviews that claim that this app hasn’t been giving them the points they deserve for downloading apps. I have not experienced this and wonder if they might not be keeping the apps open for at least 1 minute.
App Not Working
There are always going to be technical issues so I can’t complain too much here. Some people complain that it freezes too much, won’t let them open the app up, takes forever loading, etc. This is just something that you are going to have to deal with on pretty much any app.
Final Thoughts & Do I Recommend It?
First off, just to reiterate this, AppMan is a legit app that pays you to download other apps. They are not a scam.
I like what AppMan has to offer and I think its a pretty cool way to make some extra pocket change.. but that’s the problem. You are only going to be making pocket change with this app. The opportunity to make decent money just isn’t there.
So I would only recommend this app to people looking for an easy and kind of fun way to make some extra pocket change.
But honestly, I’m going to pass on it. There are better ways to make money online with your spare time and my time is worth more than what I would make with Appman.
I make a living working online for myself and I sure as heck am not going around downloading apps like crazy. I have written a post on what I do to make money online, how it all works, and how others can do the same. You can click the link below to read about it.
