Hey, we’ve just found one more reason why you should bury your head in your smartphone screen during your ‘downtime’ moments. That’s right, instead of scrolling endlessly through vapid Facebook updates, you can actually use those minutes to earn hard cash type credits, to spend on fun stuff.
Google Opinion Rewards is a new survey service which lets you earn Google Play credits just for answering short surveys on your mobile phone. Just download the app onto your Android phone, register by answering a few intrusive questions about yourself (hey, TNSTAAFL, right?) and you’re set.
The survey questions look to be the usual kind of banal ‘what are you going to buy next year’ type marketing fluff, and from what we can see they take no time at all to fill out. At the end of it, you’ll get a little note telling you how much you’ve earned in Play credits, which you can rush off and spend on music, books, games or apps etc. Sounds like a bit of a bargain.
