Hmmm, 3 cents an hour. Even if I never sleep (which I do) that's 72 cents a day, or just over $20 a month. Yet the ad on this very page tells me that a wrk at home mum can expect to earn $7,397 a month!!!
3 cents an hour just to slow down my phone, eat into my download plan, and possible infect it with spyware. I think I'll pass. It'll probably cost me more in data and getting the check from them than I'll earn.

3 cents an hour, times 16 hours (assuming you sleep for 8 hours every day), times 365 days = $0.03 * 16 * 365 = $175.20 per year. If you had two cell phones that's $350.40 per year. That could fund a CPU or GPU upgrade every year.

And you'll need that GPU upgrade too, to compensate for the overwhelming depression brought on by losing your job because you spent all day long swiping and locking your phone instead of working.

Please let me know when someone releases a app that simulates me swipe unlocking my phone 3 times a hour. You know someone is gonna automate this for free money.

Back in the 90s I recall a wave of these programs and they were a scam. They would reduce the pay rate and up the minimum payout amount like clockwork so you were perpetually chasing an unreachable amount to get your check in the mail.

If this turns out to not be a scam, then it might be worth it to donate to charity. Does it support the swipe pattern unlock or just the horizontal swipe to unlock?

My mother in-law's sister's brother in-law's mother used to make $93 an hour. She got fired like maybe 63 years ago. Now she makes 72 cents a day! Well she sleeps most of the day so she sometimes make like 5 cents.

3 cents an hour isn't going to help me much, but I'm interested in donating to charity. Hopefully there is a choice to select which charity. If there are enough donors it might actually make a financial difference. I'm going to cautiously check this out.
