I’ve been playing with WeReward lately and I have to say its a pretty cool app. Basically, you can get points for “checking in” at places or, and this is the part I like the most, for doing certain things. And you get paid via PayPal.
Specifically on their site they say:
Earn WeReward points by completing tasks and checkins at your favorite businesses with your iPhone. Each point is worth a penny, earn 1,000 points and cashout to PayPal.
The model is very interesting and I’m all for companies that are trying to maximize the location-based check-in apps because without some kind of points or incentive, my feeling is that they get a little boring (see my 6 Reasons I’m down on Foursquare post from a few months back).
I tested WeRewards recently by doing the “Butt Paste” task. It asked me to take a picture of Butt Paste (no idea what that is) and I’d earn 62 points, which equals $.62.
So I took a picture of the best example of Butt Paste I could find and whatdayaknow, it worked! I’m now $.62 richer and @jmart730 got punked. All in all, a good day.
