Install apps and get paid for it? Here’s my Whaff Rewards review
For this review, I’ll be tackling Whaff Rewards. It’s an app that gives you rewards for installing specific apps on your smartphone. Pretty sweet.
I’ve noticed that there’s an increasing number of apps and websites that rewards users for doing what they normally do, such as browsing the internet. Whaff Rewards is particularly interesting because most of are into installing (and uninstalling) apps on our phone anyways.
I personally like to install multiple apps at a given time, to figure out which one works best for me. Whaff Rewards fits in perfectly with my digital habits. Think of yourself as a tester for these apps.
You can ditch the apps after if they’re not something you would normally use. It doesn’t matter, you’ll still get rewarded. I’ve uninstalled a lot of apps later on, but on the flip side, I’ve also discovered lots of apps that I ended up enjoying (and keeping).
Now that I gave you the basics, time to dive into the specifics about Whaff Rewards. I provide some tips and secrets to making the most out of this app, so be sure to read to the very end!
Start installing, start earning
Here’s what it’s like to use Whaff Rewards: they recommend apps for you to try out (many of which are pretty awesome, I might add). You pick which ones you’re interested in, install those on your smartphone, open it… and that’s it, usually. Sometimes, you’ll have to do stuff with the app, like keep it running for a specific amount of time. But it’s still an easy, painless process.
You can uninstall it if you want. It doesn’t matter; you’re already going to get a reward for downloading it.
What’s in it for them?
App developers get exposure and rankings whenever people download their apps. To boost their presence, they turn to companies such as Whaff Rewards, which incentivizes users (such as yourself) to download these apps. This translates to better exposure for the makers, and hopefully, better sales in the long-run.
Not all apps are made equal, so it goes without saying that not all apps benefit you equally. Whaff Rewards has categorized its app into the following groups, each with various levels of perks.
Let’s check them out:
Apps in this category offer a higher reward, but you need to use them first. For example, some apps will require you to keep it on your phone for a few days or reach a specific level in a game.
You need to do more, but you also earn more. So don’t overlook these apps.
This is the basic category, and most likely the one you’ll be earning the most from. You download an app, install it, open it, and that’s it. That counts towards your rewards.
Whaff Rewards keeps adding apps to this group. If you don’t find anything you’d like to install, check back shortly. Chances are there would be a new app that you could try.
Pro tip: while you can remove the app right after opening it once, I would suggest keeping it for a few minutes, just to be extra sure it gets counted.
Whaff Rewards has a built-in lottery! If you download apps in this category, your account is added to a random draw. When picked, you get an additional reward.
It’s awesome when you win, but I would recommend you focus on the two previous categories since those give you sure rewards.
The Rewards of Whaff Rewards
I think these rewards tip the scale heavily in Whaff Rewards’ favor. I’ve made a killing by installing apps and getting an added boost via the additional rewards. Reward amounts vary, from a low of half a cent up to one cent, so be sure to check before diving in.
This is basic as it can be. Install the app, get paid. As mentioned earlier, the amounts vary, so keep checking which ones offer the most return for your time and effort.
Daily Play Reward
This is a reward for keeping the app and using it for a set amount of time.
This rewards you for completing all the required days.
This rewards you for using the app to check in.

How to get your rewards
So you put the time in and accumulated all those sweet rewards. It’s now time to redeem them. You can get payouts in the form of gift vouchers, gift cards, or cash (payout within three days).
The last one is, of course, my preferred method. That said, don’t ignore those vouchers. I tried it once and got some sweet deals from video game and coffee shops.
How to get aboard and use Whaff Rewards
You’ll need two things:
1. A Facebook account
This is a strict requirement. If you prefer not to use your personal account (or don’t have one, to begin with), you could always make an account just for the app. That’s what I did, since I like to keep all work-related accounts separate from my personal ones.
2. A smartphone
Pretty self-explanatory. Your phone must be capable of running the latest version of Whaff Rewards, which brings us to the last item you’ll need.
3. The Whaff Rewards app
The app used to be exclusive to Android users (boo), but it’s now available for both Android and iOS (yay!). After installing the app, you’ll need to sign in using your Facebook account. Once you’re done, you can start using Whaff Rewards and earning those sweet rewards.
Use the following links, depending on your phone’s operating system (also don't forget to use code AV81987 to get $0.30 when you join):
Important reminder about the Whaff Rewards app
Downloading the Whaff Rewards app itself doesn’t reward you. You need to download the apps it recommends to earn the rewards. Also, while you can uninstall the apps you’ve downloaded, DO NOT uninstall Whaff Rewards.
More important reminders
Whaff Rewards is pretty strict about fraudulent behavior. I appreciated their heavy-handed approach to scammers because that tells me the company is reliable. So to avoid getting booted out, remember the following:
1. You’re not allowed to use a Virtual Private Network to anonymously use the app.
2. It’s tempting to spam your entire network because of the rewards, but don’t do that. Only invite friends you know will be interested in Whaff Rewards.
3. One account per device. Whaff Rewards is pretty strict about this. Doing anything shady might mean having your rewards taken away, so don’t do it.
The Verdict: Legit or Scam?
Whaff Rewards has a simple, straightforward system for rewarding you. The interface is easy to follow, and most importantly, it’s easy to understand the reward tiers. Also, it rewards you for installing apps… something most of us smartphone users already do.
The number of rewards tends to fluctuate, so some timing and research are needed to make the most out of the app. Other than that, I can’t recommend this app enough.
