There are a lot of great apps out there for all smartphones on the market. However, few have the ability to make money instead of you having to pay the developers. A new trend is emerging, and it’s an interesting one that could change the infrastructure of how apps work. I am sure many of you have wished that instead of paying for in-app items, you would be paid for using the app, right? Well, the FeaturePoints app does just that.
Yesterday I had a little chat with Chris Pirillo (the uber geek and founder of LockerGnome) about apps that not only make promises about making you money but actually fulfill their claim as well. After being told about an app called FeaturePoints, I had to try it out since that’s what we do here at Bit Rebels. To my surprise, I found myself completely immersed in it, and all the apps that it suggested to me. I went from casually boiling the water for my tea to an app frenzy that I have never been in before. Every app seemed interesting, and I had to try them all.
The freakishly genius part of the whole FeaturePoints concept is that developers pay FeaturePoints to have their app featured on their platform, which is much like a promotion platform. The whole system is quite brilliant when you start looking at what it can do for its users. When using the app, you build up points for each app you try out. All the apps are free, so you will never have to pay for any of them. You will be able to exchange the points you build up using the FeaturePoints app for cash or other rewards.
The entire FeaturePoints concept is based on an app promotion system that directly rewards the developers and users supplying the apps and the promotion. All you need to do is sit back and try out fresh and sometimes insanely addicting apps in order to build up your points. FeaturePoints is available on iPhone and Android. We highly recommend you try out this app if you feel like checking out the greatest and latest apps while making a few extra bucks.
