Review Google Opinion Rewards
Money for nothing

Instant payment, short, straightforward surveys, simple interface
No significant shortcomings
Google Opinion Rewards for Android sends some very short surveys to your device, which you can complete in return for a bit of credit to your Google Play balance. You can then of course use it for purchasing some cool paid apps or music.
So far I'm finding that I receive about 1 survey per day, about 10 easy questions in each survey, and for each one I earn $1. So we're not talking about a lot of money here, but it's also an extremely easy, idle way of boosting your Play balance. You'd pick up a dollar if you saw one on the ground, and it takes about the same amount of effort to complete one of these surveys. Maybe it's even less effort: you don't have to bend down.
I have tried out a couple of other online survey schemes, but the thing with them is: not only are we talking about such a small amounts of money, but it's also such a faff to keep doing them long enough to build up a balance that can be paid to you. The great thing about Google Opinion Rewards is that it's on your device, and your Play balance is credited instantly with each survey that you complete.
This app could give you just the excuse you need to get yourself some cool and innovative games. Just don't fall for overhyped apps: keep checking here at app4smart.com to seperate the wheat from the chaff.
Google Opinion Rewards' interface is easy to use and friendly. You'll get a push notification when a survey becomes available. It's a clever way for Google to sell some reliable market research, and I am quite happy to take part in it, and be rewarded with some quality apps.
