There are definitely many programs out there that allows you to earn money by downloading apps, then earning points and cashing out for money. I will definitely be reviewing more of these programs so that everyone has a better choice!
This app review will be talking about Featurepoints, one of the older and trusted programs out there that allows you to earn money through downloading apps. Unlike MyAppAware, all you need to do is click the app shown, download the app through the link and open the app for about 1 minute. After which, you will be credited with points!
It is really simple, so lets get right into this app review!
EDIT: The review below shows picture of the old interface. I will be updating accordingly soon!

How to get Started
You would want to be on your mobile or tablet device to start. You can open the link I have provided in the summary or just click here as well to begin! Once accessing the link, you should see a page similar to the picture on the left. Click the ‘Start Now’ button and you will be prompted to the next screen which looks like the one on the right.
Click the ‘Download Feature Points’ button, then hit the Install button. This installs the tracker that allows you to earn points from apps, and also a mobile app that you can click on your home screen that goes straight to the Featurepoints site.
How to use
Once you have installed Featurepoints, you can access it by clicking the app on your device. You should first be directed to a page that looks like this. You can choose to install your first app by clicking the blue button, if not you can skip it by clicking the red button which should bring you to the list of apps, which you can download to start earning.
The picture below is the home page of the app where you can see the list of apps you can download, and the amount of points you can earn from each app. The points you earn are the one with the FP logo. For example, Deal.com.sg gives you 146 points, while your referrals who download the same app will give you 73 points. More on referrals on the section below.
After you click the respective app, you will be redirected through a link to the Apple App store or Google play store where you can download the app. It should be free to download (Avoid if there are any paid apps). After downloading it, you probably want to open it for about 1 minute, and complete any tutorials if it mentions requiring to complete those.
You should receive the points after following the instructions, but there are some cases where you are not credited the points. This is fairly common with most users, so just move on and download another app if you have tried multiple times on an app that doesn’t give any points.
There any a lot of options you can pick from to cash out, ranging from Paypal cash, to Amazon giftcards, to Playstation store, Starbucks, Walmart giftcards and more! You can even download any paid apps from the app store by using your points to redeem. Personally, I have only used the Paypal option so far.
You can browse through the catalog of things to redeem as there are a lot of different options. The exchange rate is 600 points = $1.
When redeeming paypal, you are required to enter your Paypal e-mail. A verification e-mail would be sent to your inbox, which you need to click to open before you can cash out to Paypal. Payment is instant, and there are no taxes with it, so you get the whole amount stated.
- After downloading the app, open immediately and let it sit for one minute, or explore the app if you wish.
- You can check in once in awhile as new apps may be updated.
- Check their Facebook Page as they feature apps that can give about 300-500 points when you download it. They also have some contests that could even let you win a lot of points, ranging from 10,000 up to even 50,000 points! Liking their Facebook page gives you 20 points as well!
When referring someone, the person who uses your link will start out with 50 free bonus points, just like you did if you used my link. In addition, when your referral download any apps, you will get 50% of the points they earned for free for every app they download!
You can access your referral link and code under the referral tab. You can choose to share your link through the various social media network, with the button located there for an easy 1-click share method. There are no limit to how many referrals you can get, and no limit to how many points you earn as well!
I personally have been using Featurepoints for quite long now, but am not very active at it. However, a lot of users have used Featurepoints and earned quite a lot from it due to referrals and all! Here is one of my more recent payment proof of $5 right below.
If you definitely want to try out new apps and get paid for it, Featurepoints is the thing for you! You can check out my other app-downloading programs as well for more alternatives, such as MyAppAware. For other alternative way, check out my side income page for more information!
