Get paid to download apps on your Android device. Really? Yup!

Some of you may be familiar with my other blog Slow Online Wealth, where I realistically examine methods to earn money online. Many of which I am involved with on a daily basis. I am a major proponent of diversification. If you can make $150 on Google Adsense ads per month, $50 from your Amazon affiliate account, $80 selling your own products or services, etc., before you know it, you've got a nice little chunk of change added to your bank account.

Well, here's a way to make some extra money that will definately NOT make you rich. But, it will add a little dough to your PayPal account on a daily basis.
All you need to do, on your Android device, is download an app in the Android Market called Make Money with Downloads. Within this app you will be able to view a variety of other apps, videos, offers, etc. and for every one you download or participate in, you'll get "points." These points are then redeemable for cash, which you can have transferred to your PayPal account.
As I said, you won't get rich with this, but I did test it by downloading enough apps to reach the $1.00 minimum plateau for transferring to PayPal and it worked as promised. To make things even a little better, there were a few apps there that I've been meaning to download anyway (like Intuit, which is a similar program to the Square credit card processing app) and Zarly (an app that lists things for sale in your area).
How many points you get for the download varies from app to app. You might only get 16 points, or as many as 900. Each point is equal to about half a penny, so once you acquire 200 points, you can transfer $1.00 to your PayPal account.
Some apps apply the points just for downloading and opening the app, others require you to get past the first level, or return to the app on the second day before you collect your points. Some require you to actually buy something (flowers, gifts, etc.) or register (dating sites, insurance quotes).
I'm not sure how long this will stick around, but in the last couple of days, just playing with it in my spare time, I have earned over three bucks. Hey, sometimes I don't make that much from my Google Adsense account.
Obviously, the developers who offer their apps find it worth a few pennies to get people to download their apps (mostly games, some productivity), in the hopes that they won't uninstall it, and maybe, just maybe click on one of the ads within their app.

So far, I have downloaded a couple dozen apps through this program, and even kept a couple that I liked.

If you want to try it and have the money you earn sent to my PayPal account, the address to use is gary@metroweblinks.com. :)

Hey, is that so much to ask for all of this great info I share with you? Okay, maybe it is.
