Today, I have discovered another app that I have found on both the Apple store and also the google play store that you can download and get surveys that aren’t based around cats but give you an opportunity to get paid out by PayPal. But is it all up to the hype?
Curious Cat is an app that allows you to earn credits just by completing surveys.
Who would use the Curious Cat App?
Curious cat is great for anyone looking to earn some extra income just by completing surveys and even easier tasks.
The Curious Cat algorithm is constantly working to improve their profile matching to ensure that the right people are selected for the right surveys.
They work hard to weed out low-quality surveys – To 100% guarantee that only the right surveys make money when a survey is completed successfully!
Unfortunately, Curious cat cannot guarantee that all the surveys on site will payout 100% of the time, for example, even if their profile matching algorithm has found a survey that you are perfectly matched for, it is still possible that demographic quotas for that survey might be reached (and the survey closed). whilst you are actually in the process of completing it.
The Curious cat team number one focus is to ensure they are delivering high-quality tasks and searching for new ways to improve their software every day.
How do you create an account?
Creating an account with Curious Cat is simply download from with the IOS store or the Google Play stores. App demo will be done on an iPhone
Once you have downloaded the Curious Cat App, you will be taken to the sign-in page. Click and begin.
To create an account you will need a live phone number as they need evidence that you are using a mobile device.
They will check by sending a code to that number and you will have to enter that code.
Prior to sending this code they will confirm agree to their terms and conditions.
Once you have clicked and agree then the code will be sent.
Allow Curious cat to send you notifications so you are always up to date with the latest surveys and also tasks that will earn you money.
Once confirmed, you now have access to your dashboard where first they will ask you to complete some further details on a page that links out from the App. Please note all surveys and tasks link out from the app.
Allow Curious cat you location. This will make it easier and more targeted with the Surveys you will be given.
Once completed, You are able to start making money on the Curious cat Survey platform.
How do you make money?
As mentioned, The simplicity of this app is the key to you making money on the platform and the way this is done is by giving you as many Surveys as possible.
In some cases, they may have surveys from other platforms and so there may be a case that you would have already completed a survey.
If you previously completed a survey in another app, your chances of getting screened out will increase dramatically!
Survey providers will try to prevent you from completing the same survey twice, and you will be screened out.
Task providers will not reward you twice for completing the same task from different sources.
This will significantly affect your earnings.
When completing tasks, it is important that you complete them as soon as you start them.
Tasks are available for a limited amount of time, typically from 30 minutes up to 48hrs.
Typically, once you have started you will have 1hr to complete a survey and 48hrs to complete an app download task, after this tasks will be marked as expired/abandoned and they will no longer pay.
Curious Cat select tasks based on the user profile that you have created with us and a number of other factors such as your device type and previous activity.
New tasks are available every 30 minutes. There can be quite a lot of variation in terms of the number and type of tasks that we have available.
In terms of what tasks are available for each user, it depends on the tasks we have available day-to-day, and which tasks match to the user’s profile.
How do you get paid?
Great, now you are starting to make some real points and want to get paid out. How do you do it?
To redeem your rewards, go to the Cash Out screen on the app, select the PayPal option and tap ‘Confirm’ to process the payment.
You must verify your PayPal email address and reach the 100 point threshold to cash out.
Normally payments will show immediately in your PayPal account. However, sometimes it can take up to 24hrs for it to appear in your account.
You will also receive a confirmation email from PayPal, including instructions on how to get your cash
Are there any fees or subscription costs?
There are no subscription costs or fees but the points you accumulate will expire if you are inactive for 90 days, your balance will expire and any accumulated or offered incentives may be declared null and void.
Curious Cat will attempt to send you a reminder message approximately 7 days before your balance is due to expire.
My opinion of Curious Cat.
I have been using this app on the Iphone for about a month now and i am not really a big fan of it for a few reasons.
- When you are looking to do a survey it links out to another page on safari and the user experience is not the best. It makes it hard by pinching and scrolling through the web page. Other apps have this figured out and making more money from them.
- The value of the survey is very low. I have done 10 surveys and I’m not even close to cashing out and so I have given up.
They are easy surveys and the tasks are also, but the value and the cost of my time are definitely not worth it.
