ApperWall, Scam or Legit? It Claims to Pay You for Reviewing Apps
If you are looking to make some extra money on the side and came across ApperWall you might be wondering if this is the real deal. Or is ApperWall a scam that is going to be nothing but a waste of your time.?
As you may or may not know, I am a huge fan of making money online. After all, that is what I do for a living. However, I’m always trying and testing out new ways to bring in some money just for the heck of it. ApperWall is one of my latest little experiments and in this short review of it I’ll be going over how it all works and what I think about it.

ApperWall is an app that you can download that pays you to review other apps. Its pretty simple how it works. You just download the apps that are offered, write a short review of them, and get paid.
This app is similar to AppMan, just AppMan pays you to download apps without reviewing them.
ApperWall gets their money from app creators. The apps that they offer to pay you to review come from developers that are looking to get public opinion on their apps after they change things or create an app for the first time. Its important to get reviews before releasing them to the masses. You could consider ApperWall somewhat of a beta testground for new apps.
How It Works
1) Sign Up & Download The App
It is free to sign up and download the ApperWall app. This app is available on Google Play and I’m not quite sure it is available for IOS devices but it probably is I would guess.
2) Download Available Apps & Use Them
Whenever you open up the app you will see other offers for apps that are available for you to download. You can download any that you want to and you should proceed to using the app(s) to get a feel for them.
3) Write a Review
After getting a good feel for the app(s) that you downloaded its time to write a review on them. This will only take a few minutes but you should write a decent review. Tell the truth.. what did you like? dislike? etc.
4) Get Paid
Your review will be approved within a day or two and you will then be credited with some money which varies depending on the app. If you write a crappy review you might not get it approved and you won’t earn anything.
How Much Will You Make?
They promote ApperWall by saying that “most active users earn more than $100”, but this doesn’t really tell you much because they don’t give a time frame for how long it takes to earn that. And quite frankly I don’t know if I believe it.
You will earn anywhere between $0.20 and $3.00 for every app that you review. Generally I would tell you that you can expect somewhere around $1 – $1.50.
When you review an app you won’t know the exact amount that you are going to earn. They will give you a range (for example: $0.30 – $1.00) and you will earn anywhere in that range. I am not sure how they determine how much to credit you but I am guessing that it has to do with the quality of your review.
Another Way To Earn Money
Besides reviewing apps you can also get paid by referring friends and other people to join ApperWall.
You will be given a unique link that you can get people to click and sign up, which will then credit you for the referral. For each referral you have you will earn 10% of what they earn for their lifetime using ApperWall.
How You Get Paid
Right now they only offer PayPal as a payment method, which I have no problem with. They say that they are going to be allowing people to get gift cards with the money they earn soon but I don’t know when that will happen.
All you need is $0.50 to cash out via PayPal. This is a big plus and means you don’t have to wait for eternity just to get your money.
My Top Complaint
My number one complaint about this app would have to be the overall lack of opportunity. There just aren’t all that many apps to review at any given time. Its not like you can open up the app and then knock out 50 app reviews and earn $100 or so. It doesn’t work like that.
Sometimes you might open up the app and there are only 2 apps that are offered for you to review. Other times there might be zero. The opportunity to make good money with this just isn’t there.
Other than that I don’t really have any other complaints. The ApperWall app works very well unlike many apps where you will experience all sorts of tech problems.
What Other People Think About It
Overall the general consensus is that this app is pretty good. People seem to like it.
It has a 4.5/5 overall rating on Google Play out of 567 total reviews and that is pretty darn good. I have reviewed plenty of apps and this is without a doubt a good score.
Final Thoughts & What I Recommend
Ok, so the ApperWall app is not a scam by any means. You really can download apps, write short reviews on them, and get paid for doing so. Its a pretty cool way to earn some extra cash but just don’t think you will make much.
If you expect to make more than a couple of dollars per day with this app then you will more than likely be left discouraged and disappointed. The opportunity to make even close to decent money just isn’t there. So I only recommend this app to people looking for some extra pocket change every once in a while.
As for me, its just not really worth the time in my opinion. There are better ways to make money online in your spare time.
I actually make a living working online for myself and I sure as heck am not going around downloading and reviewing apps. I have written a post on what I do to make money online, how it all works, and how others can do the same. You can click the link below to read about it.
