AppXpert - App Review

This is a bit of IT cannibalism as this is a review of an App which specialises in reviews. The difference with AppXpert is that you are the reviewer, and even get paid for your efforts.

There are really two ways of earning, one involves getting about £0.15 per review and also XP points, which bring only kudos (such as badges, higher ranking).

Now for the ACIDS test:

There is a listing of (potentially) available items to review; these will change over time.

As an example there was one for where one could earn £0.15 and 20 XP points.

You touch the 'Take part' button which takes you to a dedicated screen for this particular App. You are given a bit of a sales spiel and then invited to touch 'Take part' (another one). You then need to accept (or reject) the terms of use. On the basis that you accept these Ts&Cs you are invited to test the application. In order to do this, you need to download it first (hardly surprising really).

Having downloaded and tested the App you then return to AppXpert and answer a multiple choice question, which 'proves' that you have at least looked at the App (or made a lucky guess).

You are then invited to score the App on various criteria (in this case six), as well as to give written feedback. The scoring system (in this case at least) is 1-5 and one assumes that 1 is low and 5 is high; this is not made clear in the instructions.

The App is free and you get paid to review, although this part has not been tested.

I don't honestly think that the App can be described as being indispensable but, if you have nothing to do, or just want a distraction, why not give it a go and earn a few pennies.

The App works; the real dependability issue is about the payments that you should receive. I have not tested this aspect.

In order to have a complete profile, you need to give your name, email, gender, age group, region, and employment status. In order to receive invitations you need to enable push notifications, although you can also go to the App and see what is available.

ACIDS Test Rating:

A good distraction and potentially lucrative.
