Is getting the Clickworker Android app worth it?
I’m a big fan of Clickworker and over time have made good money using their website on my desktop. For that reason, they’re always one of the money-making methods I recommend people to check out and see if it’s for them. I’ve never been able to use the app as an Android user though. Potentially meaning lost earnings compared to iPhone using members.
That’s no longer a problem thanks to the launch of the new app. Is it worth downloading or is using the main website via a laptop or desktop PC better?
My personal preference will always be to try and earn through a desktop. The same goes for all websites. Lots of survey sites also have apps and you nearly always find the desktop version of the website is far better. I expect the same to happen with the Clickworker app.
I think having the app is worthwhile though. If nothing else, seeing it on your smartphone screen may remind you to log in to the desktop version and look for tasks! It’s free and only a small file size so it can’t do any harm. That’s my viewpoint.
How to get the free Clickworker app
Once you’re a member of Clickworker you have a choice of ways to download the app. You can either log in to the member’s area via your desktop/laptop and click on the “Mobile App” link in the menu. Or you can go directly to the Google Play Store on your smartphone and download it from there.
If you go via the “Mobile App” link in your member’s area it will show you QR codes to scan on your phone and direct links to both iOS and Google Play.
Here’s the link to the Google Play Store listing. Hit the ‘Install’ button in the app store to get it onto your device.
It was very quick to install on a Moto G5 device. You can then go ahead and open the new installation and log in with your username and password.
Once logged in you’ll see your main profile and your account balance. Here is how mine currently looks. You’ll see the ‘Jobs’ button in the menu across the bottom of the screen. Click that to see the current list of jobs available.
That’s all there is to the app. They’ve done a good job of keeping it simple.
First thoughts of the app and quick review
Having downloaded the app and started using it. Here is my initial honest review of it.
The design and layout are great. They’ve done a really good job, it’s nice and easy to use.
Unsurprisingly there are a lot fewer jobs available via the app compared to what I see on my desktop. That will always happen for technical reasons. Inevitably this will lead to lots of negative reviews in the app store. People always do that. Rather than read Clickworker explaining there will be fewer jobs via the app and then accepting that, they just steam ahead and post 1-star reviews. Ignore them. Those people are not using their brains. The good thing is those people will go ahead and uninstall which leaves more work for the rest of us, awesome!
I’ll stick with using the desktop version for now. Purely for the fact it will give me the most money-making opportunities. But I’ll keep the application installed and check it from time to time. I’d also like to see how it progresses over time and whether more and more jobs become cross-device compatible.
