The app asks you to enter some basic information such as age, gender and location in order to feed relevant ads. Each time you swipe to learn more about an ad, you earn money. Granted, you only get one penny per swipe and payouts are limited to three swipes – or three cents per hour – it can add up over time and you can even earn extra money for referring others to the service.
In theory, if you looked at three ads every hour of every day for the next year, you’d earn $262.80. A much more reasonable example would be looking at three ads for 12 hours a day each day. At that rate, you would accrue just over $130 – all of this without referrals. You will earn $1 for each person that joins and installs Locket on your behalf. In the event you have a lot of friends or family on Android devices, this could be a quick way to earn some easy cash.
Those interested can download the Locket beta app from Google Play. No word yet on when or if it will be heading to other platforms.
