The Best Phone Farming Apps Part 3 + Highest Paying Engageme.TV Websites

It has certainly been a while since I’ve published any content that is solely focused on phone farming!

When I started blogging at This Online World in January, my phone farming guide was the first post I ever wrote.

Since then, I’ve expanded into other forms of passive income, ways to make money online, or freelancing opportunities.

However, phone farming will always have a place in my heart, and managing my devices and keeping track of my monthly earnings is actually a lot of fun!

In fact, I recently purchased another device for my farm with my accumulated phone farm earnings: the LG Rebel 3.

I’ve also just surpassed the $400 mark in terms of earnings from this side hustle, which means that I should definitely surpass $500 by the end of the year! Pretty neat for some simple passive income!

Since the phone farming environment and list of profitable/functional apps is quite dynamic, I think it is about time to come out with an updated list of some other great apps you can add to your routine!

If you want to check out my previous posts on phone farming, I highly recommend glancing over:

Now, onto the apps!

Disclaimer* Please remember that phone farming is most viable in Canada, the United States, or the U.K. Please check the Google PlayStore to see if any of the apps mentioned on this blog are available in your country before purchasing phones to start a farm.

The Best Phone Farming Apps in 2018:

Viggle:

viggletm_logo_phone_farm

Viggle is one of the older incentivized media platform and was launched in 2012.

In 2016, Viggle was acquired by Perk TV, and the app has continued to rise and fall in popularity in the phone farming community ever since.

The Viggle App is similar to other Perk apps with one twist: you earn points by tuning into TV shows, movies, or listening to music, not just by watching video playlists!

Viggle can serve as a passive application, but the app also pushes interactive components to movie/tv watchers in the form of trivia questions or interesting facts.

However, since phone farming is all about passive income, most Viggle users simply play the longest movie they can find and never check in on their phone until the movie is over.

Ultimately, if you can use Viggle I definitely suggest giving the app a try.

Viggle might earn less money per hour than Perk apps such as App Trailers, but the process requires less monitoring.

Score: 3.5/5.

Earning Potential: $0.1-$0.5/phone/day from what I have heard.

Passive Earning Ability: Very passive if you play very long movies.

Desktop Capable: Yes.

Device Limit: Perk is unclear about this, but the consensus seems to be around 5 for every specific Perk application.

Availability: United States.

Verdict: If you live in the United States I suggest incorporating Viggle into your phone farm!

YooLotto:

yoolotto-money-making-apps

I actually mentioned YooLotto before in my first post on phone farming apps, but YooLotto began experiencing problems with their application shortly thereafter and lost many of their users during the following weeks.

However, it is now clear that YooLotto is making a comeback and is becoming a staple for many other phone farmers with larger operations.

The YooLotto company has actually come out with a series of applications (I’ll get to those later), and has made an effort to fix their advertisement fill issues or app glitches.

Personally, I primarily run App Trailers, Perk TV, and CashMagnet, but I mix in YooLotto on one of my devices every now and again.

YooLotto doesn’t earn a tonne of income for me, but as a secondary choice of phone farming app in Canada, it’s manageable…I’ll take a few bucks every now and again!

Yoolotto-payout-phone-farming

YooLotto still allows users to earn passive income by watching videos, and the app layout is the same as it has always been:

YooLotto App

Ultimately, I think YooLotto is a great app to try out if you are struggling to put your devices to work or have been banned from other platforms!

Score: 2.5/5.

Earning Potential: $0.1-$0.2/phone/day.

Passive Earning Ability: Quite passive if you receive enough advertisements in your area. Very location dependent.

Desktop Capable: No.

Device Limit: 10, but earnings seem to decrease as you approach 10 devices.

Availability: Apparently this is a global app, but advertisement fill will be best in the U.S. and Canada.

Verdict: Try out YooLotto if you have some idle phone farming devices that could be put to work!

YooTV:

yootv-application

YooTV is a recent addition to the YooLotto family of apps, and this is certainly good news for other phone farmers!

YooTV is basically the same app as YooLotto, and allows users to earn money by watching video playlists.

So, why would you use YooTV over YooLotto?

Well, there are 2 reasons:

  • YooTV might perform better in your area.
  • YooTV can help you expand your phone farming operation by branching out onto different apps.

Once again, YooTV performance will greatly depend on where you live.

If you checkout the Reddit Beermoney forum or YooTV subreddit, you’ll notice there are staunch supporters of YooLotto and people who absolutely hate the app.

So, do your due diligence and try testing out the app on a single device before deciding to run several phones on any YooLotto related app!

Score: 2/5.

Earning Potential: $0.1-$0.2/phone/day.

Passive Earning Ability: Passive if you receive enough advertisements in your area. Very location dependent.

Desktop Capable: No.

Device Limit: 5.

Availability: United States.

Verdict: Try out YooTV if you are running out of phone farming apps!

YooRewards:

yoorewards-app

Alright, there’s just 1 more app to mention to complete the YooLotto family of apps!

YooRewards is also very straightforward, and allows users to earn money by downloading apps or watching videos.

Once again, there’s no way to know how YooRewards will perform for you unless you try the app out on a device (since advertisement fill rate seems to vary wildly for Yoo apps).

However, YooRewards seems to work for some users judging by community feedback on Reddit, and some users have reported slightly higher earnings with YooRewards compared to the other YooLotto apps.

Score: 2.5/5.

Earning Potential: $0.1-$0.3/phone/day.

Passive Earning Ability: Passive if you receive enough advertisements in your area. Very location dependent.

Desktop Capable: No.

Device Limit: 5.

AvailabilityUnited States.

Verdict: Try out YooRewards if the other Yoo apps aren’t working or if you need more apps for your phone farm.

AppRedeem:

appredeem-make-passive-income

If you are a fan of App Trailers, you’ll probably like AppRedeem; especially because the company behind AppRedeem was also purchased by Perk in 2015.

In a nutshell, AppRedeem looks and functions like an old version of App Trailers.

To earn Perk Points, all you have to do is watch videos. You can also earn points by downloading promoted mobile apps, but this isn’t passive.

AppRedeem-app

You’ll need to create a Perk account to earn with AppRedeem, but if you currently use other Perk applications this will help you reach payout thresholds much faster!

As for rewards, AppRedeem offers the same options as any other Perk app: gift cards, PayPal cash, or sweep-stake entries.

I plan on adding AppRedeem to my phone farming routine since I just purchased a new phone, and I suggest other Perk fans take a look at the app!

Additionally, AppRedeem is also available on both Android and IOS, so be sure to take advantage of this app if you have some old iPods or iPhones!

Score: 3.5/5.

Earning Potential: $0.1-$0.4/phone/day.

Passive Earning Ability: Similar to App Trailers.

Desktop Capable: No.

Device Limit: 5.

AvailabilityUnited States, Canada.

Verdict: Use AppRedeem if you need to put your IOS devices to work or expand your Perk devices!

The Highest Paying Engageme.TV Websites:

engagemet tv phone farming

I’ve mentioned Engageme.TV before on this blog, and in my opinion, Engageme.TV is the best way to earn passive income with a spare laptop or computer.

Engageme.TV works like any other passive video application. All you have to do is run Engageme.TV with your browser (with the volume enabled) to earn money.

Recently, Adscend Media, the owners of Engageme.tv, has released another video playlist portal called Smores.TV, and many popular GPT websites now offer both of these video portals.

From my own experience, Engageme and Smores perform fairly similarly, but some GPT websites have higher payouts per advertisement view than others.

If you regularly use laptops or computers to earn passive income by watching videos, I highly suggest taking a look at the following GPT websites to earn the most money per hour:

  • Branded Survey – $0.01/3 advertisement views.
  • Earnably – $0.08/3 advertisement views.
  • Grindabuck – $0.08/3 advertisement views.

I’ve covered GPT sites in greater depth before, but as of September 2018, these 3 websites have the highest paying Engageme/Smores rates.

If phone farming isn’t working for you, GPT websites can help fill the void and provide decent bits of passive income every month.

I used to run Grindabuck on my laptop, and there were times when advertisement fill rate was strong and I could earn $1+ a day while running Engageme.TV in the background on an old laptop:

Grindabuck-earnings

At the end of the day, phone farming or GPT websites won’t make you rich.

Anyone who tells you they earn $1,000+ a month from these platforms is either lying or working on these websites full time.

However, if you’re like me and enjoy some Amazon freebies or PayPal side cash, I implore you to put some of your devices to work!

And now, a little side note:

Is Phone Farming Dead? The Future of Phone Farming:

I’ve seen this question pop up on a lot of forums or subreddit, and I think it warrants some discussion since this blog contains a variety of phone farming content.

Is phone farming dead?

No, but it isn’t what it used to be.

Phone farmers were easily able to earn more than $1,000 a year just 2-3 years ago, and farmers on forums like Reddit often look back on this golden age with a strange mixture of nostalgia and bitterness:

perk-tv-earnings

This Reddit user reportedly earned $6/day with Perk Apps a few years ago. 

So what changed?

Well, if you work in the advertising or digital media industry, you will know that advertisement fraud is an ever-growing problem.

From bot traffic to CPM fraud, it is clear that digital advertisers have to seriously vet the quality of traffic their advertisements are subjected to avoid getting taken for a ride.

When incentivized advertising platforms like Perk TV came out several years ago, traffic vetting and even the widespread understanding of advertisement fraud was not what it is like today.

And so, back in the day, advertisers were willing to pay higher CPM rates for worse traffic because it wasn’t always evident that traffic was fraudulent or of poor quality.

If you fast forward to the present day, it’s clear that the industry is slowly changing.

I mean, just look at current phone farming apps and earning rates. Apps are less passive than they used to be, and earnings are also lower than the past.

There isn’t anything wrong with this, and current payout rates from phone farming apps simply reflect the quality of phone farming traffic.

Ultimately, I think it is highly unlikely phone farm earnings will ever increase dramatically without becoming completely fraudulent and gaming the system.

Phone farming advertising is truly the bottom of the barrel in terms of traffic quality, and unless this changes, the payout rates will remain stagnant.

If bottom of the barrel traffic quality keeps a spot at the table, there’s really no reason for phone farming to die. After all, advertisers are free to pay as much (or as little) as they want for their digital marketing efforts.

And so, I do not believe that phone farming is dead.

However, phone farming isn’t as profitable as it used to be, and I don’t advise people to invest a significant amount of money into dozens of devices.

If you live in the United States or Canada and have old devices laying around, phone farming can be a great hobby to earn passive income every month.

Once you prove phone farming is viable in your area, perhaps take your earnings or some savings and slowly expand your operation with an additional device every now and again.

As long as you responsibly track your cost of startup and monthly earnings, you should be able to tell when you will break even on your initial investment and begin making profit.

Finally, if you are looking to make more considerable amounts of money online, phone farming just isn’t for you.

I got into this hobby because I wanted to make some extra income without putting in any work…but you always get what you put into something.

If you want to really make money online, I’d consider starting some projects that have a lot more potential, such as creating your own blog, freelancing, starting a dropshipping business, or some other money making endeavor.

The internet is a vast place, and technology is awesome! I’m sure with enough time, dedication, and know-how, you can find a way to use your skill set to earn extra income online.

I hope this updated list of phone farming apps has provided some useful information for my fellow farmers!

Thanks for reading!
