SlideJoy app review: How much money was made in a 21-day test

Posted by: Chris

UPDATE: The data below was recorded in February 2017. In April 2020 I received an email from Slidejoy saying they’ll no longer be operating in my region (United Kingdom) as well as some other regions. For that reason I’m no longer earning any money from them and have uninstalled the app from my smartphone.

The latest test I decided to do was for an app called Slidejoy. At the time of writing it’s only available on Android devices. Here I will review my experience and share with you how much money I’ve earned.

To start earning your own money from Slidejoy download the app via the Google Play Store. Be sure to pick ‘normal’ mode unless you want to donate your earnings to charity.

What is Slidejoy?

It’s a very simple app to use and is free to download. Once installed you activate it and then on your lock screen it will sometimes show static adverts, they don’t have any sound. To give you an idea, here’s a screenshot of how it looks on my Samsung. To enter your phone as normal you simply swipe to the right.

There are other extra options to make money inside of the app, such as doing surveys, but I’m not interested in doing those. I’ve not even tried them so I can’t comment on that aspect of the app. Once you’ve earned at least $2 you can cash out via Paypal or gift cards.

First off let’s talk about the test details. I decided to run it for 21-days. It took place in February 2017. I’d had the app installed for a while and wanted to properly record how much money it would make so I could give you a factual representation. That’s why my starting balance was already 3260 points, and not zero. All I did was activated the app and recorded my balance each day at around 7pm. That was literally it, I had to do nothing else.

Profit made from using the Slidejoy application

Here’s a table showing how many points I received per day. If you can’t see it very well, please click on it for the full-size version.

As you can see, if the numbers stayed the same for a year, it would bring in just over $30. Not bad for doing absolutely nothing. There is no cost whatsoever meaning it’s 100% profit.

I’ve never had any problems whilst the app has been running. It doesn’t slow my device down. I guess there are lots of questions you may have about the app, if there’s anything I haven’t covered, please ask in the comments section further down this page.

Tips for getting the biggest benefits

As always, I highly recommend you use the app naturally, don’t try to hack it or game it or do anything that risks being banned.

Within the app you also have the option to temporarily disable the app. This is perfect for when you are going to be using your smartphone a lot and will be unlocking and locking it regularly. There was one day, on the 20th, I chose to disable the app for 4 hours. I still made 80 points on that day. It’s worth doing that sometimes to avoid getting annoyed with the app.

If you wanted to maximize earnings you will need to also to do other things in the app such as surveys. For this purpose of this case study I chose not to, but it’s an option. To put it in perspective of how much money the big earners have made, here is a screenshot from the current hall of fame.
Top earners

As you can see, they’ve all made hundreds of dollars. That’s not loose change.

The top tip that I pretty much always give with most things, is to be patient and consistent. Keep messing around with the app and you will lose potential revenue. It will take time for the cash to build up but it feels good when you get paid via Paypal.

How to download the free app

Please search in your Google Play Store app on your smartphone for “Slidejoy” to find it, it should come up straight away. Or visit their official website for more details.

If you like reviews like this one and want another money-making opportunity see please read my recent Qmee review to see if you could also make extra cash there too. If you like these sorts of apps then also take a look at Google Rewards.

Would I recommend Slidejoy?

Yes for most people I definitely would recommend it. It’s the true definition of money for nothing. I’m in the UK and at the current exchange rate it will bring me in over £24 per year. I have a sim-only 12-month contract with EE that’s £10 per month, that means I can effectively get 2 months free use of my phone just by running this app. Sweet!

There are some people I wouldn’t recommend it for though. If you are an absolute smartphone junkie who is always on and off their device you might want to give it a miss, it could start to bug you having to swipe right each time you unlock your phone.

As always please remember that my results are specific to me, yours will probably be different. They may be better, they may be worse. I’m in the UK and use a Samsung A3 phone. I don’t know if location affects how much you earn and stuff like that.

I hope this little test helps give you a clear idea of if this is a money making opportunity for you. As always, please ask any questions in the comments section and thanks for reading this far down the page!

    How u got 3000 at start?

    1. Chris says:

      As it says in the article “I’d had the app installed for a while…That is why my starting balance was already 3260 points, and not zero”. The formal test was started a couple of months after I’d installed the app so those points had already built up.

    Can you transfer your points to another phone?

    1. Chris says:

      I’ve had a look in the app but I can’t see a way to transfer points to another phone. There is a ‘contact us’ link in the app so drop them an email and ask if it’s possible. Maybe they can do it manually for you.

  • Mike says:

    Hey i just got the app recently and it said not to open up your phone too much just to try and get extra points…do u know if they changed the scale to a set amount of points given out each day…because i notice you habe varying points each day

    1. Chris says:

      Hi Mike, I’m not sure to be honest. I think I get a different amount of points per day but I don’t update it each day to check. However when I do I’ve noticed the amount of points I get is at random numbers, before they were always rounded. Such as; 70, 80; 90. But I just updated it now and got 72 points. I’ve seen that happen before. That suggests there has been some sort of change but I don’t know if it’s to give a set amount of points each day. I’d be surprised if it was because they get the revenue from advertising in order to pay us and advertising revenue is never stable. For that reason I don’t see how they’d be able to offer one consistent amount of points. Maybe give it longer and see what happens.

    I enjoyed reading this review but $30 within year it is slowest app. Someone can give up along the way.
