Good if you have time and patience
I am visually impaired and while the app is infinitely easier to use than accessing the website from my PC, I still find that accessing the website from Safari on my phone is the easiest way for me to complete surveys. The app is a close second, but I’m able to move around a little more quickly on the website because I don’t have the buttons at the bottom to interfere with my navigation.
I mostly do surveys because videos don’t interest me much and the shopping opportunities are better with a different app, but there are usually plenty of opportunities to earn points with the surveys so I have been very happy with that. While getting one or two points here and there if I am unable to complete a survey doesn’t sound like much, they do add up and compared to a lot of other panels I’ve tried, makes it worth my time. I only wish there was a way to report accessibility issues when I encounter a survey that I am unable to complete because I hate the appearance that I am just abandoning surveys when there is actually a good reason for doing so. As long as you understand you’re not gonna make a lot of money, it’s an easy way to get some extra shopping money and you’ll enjoy this for the most part.
You really do earn money, but...
I’m used to doing surveys online, they always take a long time for little payout but I’ve redeemed quite a few gift cards over the years. My issue isn’t with Swagbucks, but the app itself. At times the surveys don’t load completely so after spending 25 minutes on a super detailed survey, I can’t continue because the buttons or options don’t load enough for me to answer or click “Next,” so I lose out on all that time and a couple extra dollars. Also, if my finger happens to slip and click one of the tabs in the app (which you can’t get rid of and are always present at the bottom of the screen), then I lose all my progress and I get kicked from the survey altogether. Just a few things I’d like to see fixed and would make the user experience much more satisfying.
Not for me
I'm giving this app 3 stars because I don't want to discourage anyone from at least trying it for themselves... but it's simply not for me. I don't want to sound paranoid but the first survey was all about asking my income, my profession, my race.. etc. They also asked if they could track my location with the option only to be tracked while using the app.. or all the time. My choice was the first one but I keep receiving a pop up message saying I'm being tracked all the time regardless of my choices and would I like to go to settings to change this. Well of course I would because it wasn't my choice to begin with! I think I'm just old school and I don't like the idea of someone using my info as a method of saving money.. or getting me to spend it! I feel the same way about social media, if I want my friends and family to know what I had for dinner then I will call and tell them! I feel no need at this point to announce my life (or my dinner choices..LoL) to a bunch of complete strangers... but if these things don't bother you then you might actually like this app and others just like it.. in which case you should give it a try. As for myself, I will be deleting for now.
