Let's face it more of us are using our smartphones as a replacement to our computers and laptops. It only make sense because we usually carry our phones with us more than anything else. If you've read my blog in the past, you know I've provided you with a few smartphone apps that have made many of you some extra money such as Ibotta, TapBooty (giggle. lol), Instagc, Checkout 51 and others. Well today I've discovered another app that may help you make some extra money for something you already do with your phone. So sit back and enjoy my SideJoy Review as we determine if it makes “cents” for you to use.
What is the SlideJoy App?
Let's face it most of us have locks on our smartphone for various reasons. It could be because of those incriminating selfies, your nasty slick “sex'ting” messages or like most normal people you just have personal information you want to keep safe. Either way, the SlideJoy app pays you some extra cash for simply unlocking your Android phone.
How To Get Paid For Unlocking Your Smartphone Screen?
1. First download and install the free app from google play.
2. After you install the app, you'll start seeing ads when you try to lock or unlock screen on your phone.
3. Swipe left to see the advertisement that pays you.
4. Swipe right means that you want to ignore the ad and just unlock your phone.
Whether you are swiping your phone right or left you still earn money. Visiting the ad doesn't pay you more so it increases the chance that you'll only visit the ad if you're truly interested which is what advertisers want anyway.
How Much Money Do You Make?
Damn'ed if I know. The website is allusive and doesn't really tell you. My homegirl Anna at RealWaysToEarnMoneyOnline.com has heard whispers of $5-$15 per month. Either way you're getting paid for something you're doing for free. So in my mind you're winning either way.

SlideJoy Cons & Complaints
As you already know, no company is perfect. There are always some things that are going to rub us the wrong way. That said it doesn't mean the company is bad or a scam. But it's things I know will annoy some of you so it's worth mentioning so you can make an educated decision. Now that's out the way, let's get into it.
Android Smartphones only
This is the one time I'm actually jealous of you android users. LOL But apparently they are working on an iphone version. But unfortunately Apple closes certain features to developers which may make this hard for SlideJoy. It's the gift and curse of being in the Apple ecosystem.
Born In The US only…
Unfortunately for my international brothers and sisters, this app doesn't work for you if you're outside the USA. They hope to change this soon. It's not my rules people. But you know Eddy got love for you too. So check out my international section here.
No Tablet Love
You won't be able to use this on your android tablet. I'm not sure if your big ass “Phablets” count in that restriction.
Long Ass Wait for Pay
For your first payment you're going to need to wait 3 months. After that the payments will be steady every month if you continue to use the app. I don't understand the logic of why you have to wait so long for the first payment especially when you have apps like Ibotta or TapBooty that pay damn near instantly. But they claim it's because they have to wait to get paid from the advertisers. I say invoice those suckers within 30 days. LOL
So Is SlideJoy A Scam or Legitimate?
Judging by the positive feedback and ratings, the app does seem to be the real deal. So if you're like me and enjoy getting paid extra money for things you would do anyway, then this is a great little opportunity to add to your multiple streams of income. I'm big proponent of multiple streams of any income because it all adds up in my mind especially if it doesn't require a lot of effort.
But some of you ain't with that. You want to make real money and lots of it. So with that in mind, I would recommend you check out:
Paparazzi Accessories Opportunity
Both are opportunities that will pay you more than this SlideJoy app in the long run. But if you're smart I would just do them together to maximize your income. In any event, I hope you enjoyed my SlideJoy App Review. If you did, let a brother know down below by posting a comment. I always love hearing from you.

Hi Eddy, great blog! 🙂 Where is the international section you speak of in this article? This is something I struggle with all the time! Filling in countless surveys and signing up for things only to discover it’s not supported in my country 🙁 I am already on Wealthy Affiliate and a number of other sites but it seems that opportunities are limited for people outside of the US. Would also like to find an app that pays you to unlock your phone that can be used in any country.
Thanks for the kind words. Here’s the international page. Unfortunately there just aren’t many of these type of opportunities available worldwide. Most of the reward sites, surveys and app sites are only in the US or Canada. It’s annoying but its the reality.
Thanks so much for the mention! I love these little apps — I can’t use this one though because I don’t have an Android. But you definitely cannot beat getting paid — even if it’s just a few cents — for doing something you’re going to do anyway! Great review. 🙂
You’re welcome Anna. I feel the same way about these apps & other little opts. It all adds up & usually involves little work or change in your existing activities.
Lol, I am some weird techie that doesn’t know quite where to place my allegiance. I will only own Apple computers but will not use Safari. I am a huge Google/android fangirl. I had an Android phone but about a year ago bought an iPhone 5. I love that it plays nice with my computer but otherwise don’t really care for it. Hence the, Android/Apple dilemma. Since I like Android, I look for any little reason to switch back. Lol
Ironically I have the same issue. I don’t use safari but I love chrome and many of the other Google products. But household is an apple ecosystem. So as much as I can appreciate some of the cool android feature it doesn’t make much financial sense to switch over. My only real envy was the bigger screens and now that’s resolved. lol
That said I’ve known quite a few people that switched to Android and came right back home to Apple. lol
Hey Eddy! I will probably give this a try since it’s very little work on my part. You know, it’s funny how people complain about how little money that can be earned from some of the opportunities that you review. My thing is that, if you can earn a penny for something that you do everyday for free, you are already making a profit. I just don’t understand some of these folks.
Sounds good Dez. Brother you’re preaching to the choir. I don’t get it either way. But that’s fine there are folks like you and I that do get it and goes into our pockets. lol
Sounds like a pretty cool way to make money. I will probably be joining this company, but do you know if the app tracks your earnings or has more information abut how much you will earn?
Glad you like the opportunity and willing to give it a shot. Yes I would assume the app will track your earnings but I don’t know if there is a place you can login and see how much you’ve earned. I guess you can download it and find it since it’s free. I wish I had more details on how it works. If it ever gets on iOS, I will give it a shot. Keep me posted.
Ugh, on more hash mark on the switch back to Android column. Samsung or Apple, Samsung or Apple…….lol
I knew someone was going to go there. LMAO.
Ssssh it. 😛
