Apps That Pay You

Most apps on the market right now have a price attached to them, but are there any apps that pay you?

After much searching through the android market I have finally found one that does (and supports all platforms) ! I wouldn’t get too excited though as your not going to quit your job, but why not download the app and start making money.

The app in question is called Qustodian. It is available in Spain where it has enjoyed huge success and has now launched in the UK. It has experienced considerable and quick growth in its short existence and is the only app that pays you by channelling money from advertisers to consumers, which means it effectively has a monopoly on the market at the current time.

When you join Qustodian you will be given a personal profile which is called a “Yoad”. This is updated with details about yourself including your interests and the brands/companies you like. You will then receive messages and promotions about your brands and interests, if you don’t like a message you can choose to receive no more messages from that company.

Advertisers pay Qustodian to have their messages forwarded to the appropriate people, meaning this is a highly targeted way of advertising (the advertisers like this). Qustodian then shares this revenue giving 1/3rd of the cost to the consumer (me and you). If you’ve invited a friend you will also get a further share of 1/6th of the total revenue for each message your friend receives. There is no limit to the amount of friends you invited.

At the moment the app pays you 8p for each message received (at least one every day) plus a further 4p for each of the messages my friends receive.

Obviously this isn’t a great amount at the minute, but you have to understand that the company has only just launched in the UK and as such doesn’t own a large marketing share. The more people that join Qustodian the more the app will pay you, purely because advertisers want to reach as many people as possible.

The best way to make decent money with Qustodian is to invite your friends and family. There is no catch involved and the line "this app doesn't pay me until it pays you" usually works (and is 100% true). Just think how many friends you have on facebook? How many of these would like money to receive messages? Then times this number by 4p and this is the amount you will receive every day.

You can find more information on the internet, most of which report bugs and issues, but the fact that you get paid is not disputed.

Given time Qustodian could become a huge advertiser and could lead the way in the future of advertising.
