Taps For Money App Review: Is It A Scam?

taps for money app review is it a scam? Taps for Money is an awesome app that lets you earn money just by using the app and tapping your phone. It sounds to good to be true, but it’s actually a legitimate way to get paid and make money with your phone.

First off, the reason they’re able to pay you to tap your phone and use the app is because they show ads inside the app that makes them money. Because of this you’ll earn points towards gift cards!

In this Taps For Money App Review I’ll cover how it works, how you can get paid, the complaints I have with this app, and all the important details of the app.

Taps For Money App Review

App: Taps For Money

Type: Taps, View Ads

Score: 2/5

In this Taps For Money App Review I gave them an okay score. Honestly this is a brain dead way to make money with your smartphone. All you need to do is click and view a couple ads to make money.

With that being said, other members and I do have some complaints with this app. Overall it’s a pretty easy way to make some money, but it would be easier if less ads were shown. If you want an easy way to make some money, while your waiting for someone or just watching TV Taps for Money is an easy way to do so. But there’s some major negatives to this app I’ll cover later.

How Does The Taps For Money App Work?

1) Use the Different Ways to Earn Taps

Taps For Money App Review How To EarnThere’s a few different ways to earn taps from just tapping the screen, watching videos, and a few other options that earn taps but require you to view text ads. The goal is to get to 1 million taps!

2) Reach 1,000,000 Taps

Once you’ve used the app for a while you’ll reach the 1 million taps point. Once you get 1,000,000 you can redeem your taps for cash.

3) Redeem Your Taps For $15 Gift Card

You can redeem 1 million taps for a $15 gift card to PayPal, Amazon, iTunes, or Xbox!

How To Earn With The App?

Tapping The Button

The easiest way to get taps is by literally tapping a button in the middle of the screen. Like I said this a brain dead way to make money with this app. Just continue to tap to earn taps and come closer to 1,000,000 tap mark. Occasionally an ad will come up and you’ll have to close it to continue tapping.

Taps For Money App: Paid To Water The Money TreeWatering Money Tree

This is very similar to tapping, but you’ll be shown a text ad every time you water the tree. Every time you water the tree you’ll earn 10 taps.

Money Farm

After you water the Money Tree 500 times you’ll unlock the Money Farm. After you unlock the Money Farm, it’s an easy way to get additional taps, but again you’ll be shown an ad every single time you use this method!

Watching Videos

You can watch a 15-30 second video (ad) and earn 225 taps for your time. This is a pretty easy way to earn some taps, but it looks like you do have to interact with the ad to actually earn.

Sharing On Social Media

You can earn taps for sharing on Facebook, Twitter, and texting your friends. You’ll earn 5,000 taps for sharing on social media and 10,000 taps for sharing with 5 friends via text.

How To Get Paid By Taps For Money?

Taps For Money App: How Does It Pay? You can redeem 1 gift card once you reach 1,000,000 taps. Right now the available gift cards include PayPal, iTunes, Amazon, and Xbox. All gift cards are for $15. Once you reach the million taps mark you can redeem your gift card my choosing a payment method and entering your email.

It says that payment can take up to a month to receive, because they rely on the ad revenue they receive in the app to pay members. This is a major concern, but there’s been proof of members getting paid, it’s just going to take a while. Also there’s a limit of 1 gift card per user. Meaning you can only cash out one time!!!

Taps For Money App Complaints

Takes Forever To Get Paid

This is by far the worst part about this app. Yes it’s extremely easy to earn taps and the 1 million taps can be reached pretty quickly if you use the app for a few hours. But it can take a month or more to actually get paid.

This brings up the question do they even pay? From what I’ve seen there’s proof of payment out there so I believe they do pay. I’m currently still waiting on payment, it’s been about two weeks.

I’ll update this when I do get paid, but it sucks that you can earn $15 in a few hours, but have to wait a month to get paid!

Limit 1 Gift Card Per Person

The next complaint is at this time there’s a limit of one gift card per person. This means once you cash out you can’t earn any more taps or exchange taps for gift cards again. I guess this because the app is still new, but I wish you could continue to use this app after cashing out.

Tons Of Ads

As you probably guessed, Taps For Money shows a ton of ads, since that’s how they earn all of their income. It’s not bad on the methods that require you to view ads after each tap, but when tapping ads will come up every once in a while.

If you’re just going away at tapping, most likely you’ll accidentally click the ad. Which isn’t a huge deal because you can just go back to the app (with the newest IOS update) but it can be a pain and annoying.

Is The Taps For Money App A Scam?

It seems like Taps For Money is not a scam, but it’s a dead brain way to make money with your phone and it’s not a long term method to make money with apps.

Like I mentioned, at this time you can only cash out once. Yeah it’s an easy $15, but you’ll be waiting a long time for your payment.

I can’t really recommend this app since there’s restrictions and slow payments, but if you’d like to learn more just download the app in your mobile device’s app store to get started.

You have an extremely interesting website here and it seems really helpful. Also, it has a really nice design to it.

I think you are right on when you say Taps for money is an extremely brain dead way to make money. Even if it does pay a little, im not sure I could do that fro too long before i got bored.

Thanks for the review. Im going to look around your website more. What would your recommend?

    Hey Dylan,

    Thanks for the comment and yeah Taps For Money isn’t really a good way to make money on your phone. Personally my favorite app is Swagbucks. They give you a ton of different ways to earn and they have a website where you can earn on your computer as well.

    I have a few other recommendations of apps in different categories. You can see them at How To Make Money On Your Phone.

    Hope this helps,

    Hey! Really enjoying your site I’ve downloaded a good chunk of your suggested apps!

    I got the app Taps for Money and got to a million Taps! I requested a $15 gift card for PayPal and it took about 4 days for them to pay me.. I was a little surprised by this because I too saw poor reviews on the time it took to pay, maybe I just got lucky because I requested towards the end of January?

    Anyway, I did like the app a lot because I just made $15 while I watched TV like you said! Very exciting to have the money deposited into my PayPal account!

      Hey Jake,

      Thanks for taking the time to check out my reviews and to leave your experience with the Taps For Money App. From what I’d found it seemed to be mixed reviews, so it’s awesome to hear that it actually worked and you were paid in a timely fashion!

      The timing probably has something to do with it because they are making money on advertising and most of those companies pay once a month or a net 30 basis.

      Let me know if you come across any other apps that you use to make some extra cash, would love to add them to my list 🙂

      Thanks again for reading!

    No problem! Thanks for showing me all these cool apps!

    I would also check out Taps for Money’s other apps… They’re pretty sold. Movie Money takes a while but barely takes any time each day and I (literally) flew through their app Money Mission and got $10!

    Other than those, OnGo Surveys is a good one too! I got $15.50 in about 2 months.

    Thanks for replying!

    PS. On another note.. this may just be my computer but leaving comments seems to be difficult, I only see the captcha when I reply to certain comments.. just something to look at!

      I will look into the comments thing. I have another site fulltimejobfromhome.com that’s had the same types of issues in the past (has similar theme). I’ve never heard of the Movie Money app so I will check it out!

      Thanks again for reading and taking the time to leave comments 🙂

Hi Brok, this is an interesting Apps that can help you to make a bit of money I guess, Like you said, it is sure a brain dead way to make some extra income. Personally, I am not too inclined on this type of apps as it requires a lot of time in a brain dead way. I love how a program that called themselves WA really stand out for the crowds as WA genuinely teaches everybody without prejudice. Thanks Brok and have a good day 🙂

    Thanks for checking out my Taps For Money Review Dominic.

    Glad you agree that it’s not really a good way to make money.

    Let me know if you need any help

does this actually pay out cause it said 5-7 days and nothing is connected to the internet that would show that you did in fact break the egg by getting the counter down from 1 million all the way down to zero.. have you any insight on this particular free money app ??

I’m writing to you because I participated in the break the cube game but fyber.com insists that they don’t handle gift card payment and that you are responsible for gift card payment my fyber id#2058674607 email tmangham717@gmail.com
