Is AppLike a Scam? – No, But It Might Not Be Worth It

AppLike scam


Is AppLike a Scam

Can you really make money by downloading and playing games with AppLike? Sounds pretty cool… But if it is true… is it worth your time? Or is AppLike a scam that is just going to be a waste of your time?

Well, I’ll get straight to the point here and tell you that… No this app is not a scam and you really can make money by downloading game apps and playing them. HOWEVER, although this sounds amazing this is still not an app that I would recommend for everyone. You will see why in this review.

AppLike Review

AppLike is an app that pays you to download other apps… Sounds pretty strange right? Well actually it is not. There are several other apps out there that do exactly this that I am aware of, such as AppKarma and Pocket Flip, and probably many more that I am not aware of.

Basically what AppLike is doing here is advertising for app developers. Most of the apps that you will be able to get paid to install into play or on the newer side. This is because the app developers are trying to push their new apps out into the public to gain popularity. You could have the greatest game app in the world, but if no one knows about it then of course no one is ever going to play it. So the app developers pay AppLike two advertise their apps and AppLike pays you a small amount as incentive to download and play the apps. If

AppLike it is said to be the “best app that pays you money”, but this largely depends on what you are looking for. It can be a fun way to earn a bit of extra money while finding new games to play, but you certainly aren’t going to earn very much

which is why I don’t recommend this app for everyone.

How It Works

The first step of the process would of course be to download the AppLike app. This app is going to provide you with a list of different game apps that it thinks you will like. The more you use it the better it will get at recommending apps based on the previous apps that you have used. It will learn what type of game apps you like and scour its list of apps for ones that are a good fit.

So hopefully besides just making a bit of extra money you will also find some fun games to play in your spare time.

You will be able to pick and choose what apps you want to download and play from the list it gives you. There is no obligation to pick any certain app and the list will be updated regularly.

Once you find something that is of interest to you, here’s how the rest of the process works and how you make money…

1) Download Apps

First up you’re going to have to download the app, or apps, that you want to play. Nothing special here. And like I said, you can choose whatever you want and if you don’t see anything you like, you can just wait and come back another time to see if there are better choices.

You will earn mCoins for downloading apps. This is their form of currency and you will be able to redeem these for things of real value after you get enough.

2) Use The Apps

By playing the different games you will be able to earn more mCoins. The longer you play, the more coins you get.

I was reading some reviews recently and it seems that you will make around 250 mCoins per minute that you play game, but this could vary depending on the game… I’m not completely sure.

3) Refer Friends

You can also learn more mCoins by referring others to AppLike. I’ll get more into how much you can actually earn doing this in a bit.

4) Redeem mCoins

And finally you will be able to redeem your mCoins for various different gift cards or you can get real money via PayPal, which is pretty much always my choice if it is a choice. The gift cards are good though. There is the choice of Amazon, CVS, Walmart, iTunes, restaurants like Burger King and Chipotle, and more.

How Much Will You Make?

While you can make real money with this app, which almost seems crazy at first, don’t get too excited because you will not be making very much at all, which is why only recommend this app to people who like to play games like those that are recommended in the first place.

In order to understand how much you actually make, you first have to know how much one of these mCoins it is worth, and unfortunately it is not much. It depends on what you are redeeming your coins for, but they are generally worth around $0.0001, which means that you need 100 of them just to make one cent.

The amount you will actually be able to make will depend on many different variables, but generally speaking you can probably expect to earn less than one dollar per hour by downloading apps and playing them.

Referral Program

You can boost your earnings by referring other people to use AppLike. You get a referral bonus of 250 coins when you refer someone else to download the app, and you also get 25% of their earnings for life. So this definitely has the potential to allow you to earn a lot more. If you get a lot of active referrals in their playing games and downloading like crazy, you could earn a heck of a lot more than you could by yourself.

That said, I still wouldn’t expect all that much.

Getting Paid

Besides offering some good options that you can redeem your coins for, it is also nice that you only need to reach a minimum of a $0.50 balance in order to redeem your coins. A lot of similar apps out there require you to reach a threshold of $10-$15 which can take weeks or even months, so it is definitely nice to see the ability to be able to redeem points in a much shorter period of time.

If you want to cash out $0.50 via PayPal, then you would need 4999 coins to do so. If you want a gift card, they start at $2.50 and you will need somewhere around 24,250 coins.

So as you can see the value of these coins varies slightly depending on the reward, but generally speaking the value of each coin is around $0.0001, as mentioned above.


One thing that always like to do when reviewing apps like this is to look around at different user reviews, such as the many reviews on Google play. Now of course you can trust all them, but sometimes they do provide some helpful insight.

Some complaints that I think are worth mentioning include the following…

Payout Problems

I’ve read several reviews from people complaining about payout problems, which is a big deal. Some people claim that when they go to cash out, it remains as “pending” and never fully goes through, yet the coins have been deducted from their account.

I’m not sure what’s going on here, maybe it is a glitch… Who knows.

Takes Forever

Of course one common complaint is that it takes forever to be able to make any noticeable amount of money.

Fake Reviews?

And lastly, a personal complaint of mine is that I think there could be some fake reviews on Google Play. Now I’m not 100% sure on this, but I have seen this plenty of times before and it just seems to me that many of the reviews ranting and raving about how great this app is seem to be fake.

I don’t know… This is just my opinion, but it is worth mentioning.

Scam or Not?

While there is a noticeable amount of complaints, you will find this with any app out there… No matter how good it is. Is this a scam? As I said in the beginning, I definitely do not consider it a scam. There are plenty of people out there who have used the app and have gotten paid as they were supposed to.

But, as I’ve been saying… This is definitely not something I would recommend for everyone.

Who It’s Best For

I’d only recommend AppLike for people who actually like to play games in the first place. If you are interested in making money and that is it, this is definitely not something for you. You’re just going to end up frustrated and with little money to show for the time you put into it.

If you are someone that likes to play games, then go for it. Think about it… This app is recommending games to you that you might like based on your previous activity. You might find some really fun games that you wouldn’t have found otherwise.

For Those Looking to Make Money

Of course there are always GPT (get paid to) sites out there, like Swagbucks and FusionCash, we can get paid to perform small tasks, complete offers, take surveys, etc.… But those don’t really pay much either.

What you may want to look into, if you are reading this review because you are looking to make money online, would be how I make money online. I’ve been making money online since 2015 and make a heck of a lot more than I ever could with some app like this. I’m not going to get into a year, but you can click the button below to learn more:
