AppStation Review-How Much Can You Earn Playing Games?

AppStation Review

Thanks for checking out my Appstation review.

Appstation is an Android app that is designed to pay its users for playing games online.

In my review today I will be finding out all you need to know about the Appstation platform to help you decide if its worth checking out for yourself.

I will be uncovering what real users of the app are saying about it. I will also be weighing up the pros and cons to help you make a more informed decision about whether you should join.

Before I take a look at the earning potential however, let’s find out about Appstation and how it works.

About AppStation

The Appstation app developers say the app allows you to make extra cash and other rewards just for installing and playing free games on your phone.

The AppStation app was created by a German consortium called AppLike GMBH.

Joining AppStation

AppStation is freely available to Android users from all over the world. It is completely free and there are no in app purchases.

To sign up you just need to download and install the app on your smartphone to register and create a members account. New members to AppStation will get 4444 coins as a welcome bonus (approx $0.45), as soon as you complete the sign-up process.

How AppStation Works

Once registered, the app will direct you to your member’s dashboard where you will find a list of numerous games along with their rewards.

Your eligibility to play these games depends on your location, meaning that some games might not be available in your region.

All the games are online-based, meaning that you must have internet connectivity to download and play.

Additionally, you must grant AppStation permission to access your data usage on your phone for the app to detect the amount of time you spend playing games.

As you might be aware, AppStation promises to pay you for every minute you play games on their platform. For this reason, it is prudent that you allow your data connection on at all times when playing.

This will make it easier for the app to monitor and capture your activities.

How Much Can You Earn With AppStation?

AppStation uses virtual coins to pay its members, whereby 100 coins is equivalent to $0.01. For every minute of playtime, you should expect anywhere from 200 to 300 coins.

This translates to $0.02 to $0.03 per minute or $1.20 to $1.80 per hour.

It’s also worth noting that AppStation has a limit to the amount of coins you can earn per game. This means that you may end up playing virtually for free if you reach the earning limit for each game

The AppStation Referral Program

The income potential on this platform might be too low, but you may increase your earnings by inviting your family and friends to this platform.

AppStation will give you a unique link that you can use to invite your friends. For every new member who signs up via your link, AppStation will pay you 250 coins plus an additional 25% of your referrals’ earnings.

Your referral will also receive 25% of your earnings as an incentive for joining.

Cashing Out With AppStation

The minimum pay out threshold is 4444 coins, which translates to about $0.45. This threshold is extremely low, and you can meet this amount after playing just one or two games.

You may request for cash payments via PayPal or redeem your coins for gift cards. The only problem is that the processing of PayPal payouts takes at least five business days to complete while gift card redemptions take more than seven business days.

Appstation Reviews From Real Users

At the time of my latest update of this review there are just over 110,000 reviews written about AppStation on the Google Play App Store. The App has achieved an overall 4.1/5 star Rating.

Most users of the App are happy with the app, enjoying playing the games and earning rewards. Some users however report technical issues with the App when it comes to redeeming their rewards. They report that the app says ‘something went wrong’ when trying to cash out. Some users however do confirm that they have received their rewards.

A few users report having been flagged about suspicious activity. Of course we can’t confirm who is in the wrong with individual accounts. Other users complain about the lack of game options.

Overall however this is a popular app that is liked by the majority of users.

I would love to hear from any readers that have or currently do use the app. If you are a member, and you want to share your experience please leave a comment in the comments section below.

Some Final Thoughts About Appstation

AppStation is without a doubt a legitimate platform. The app belongs to a reputable company based in Germany.

Although there are members that report having difficulty with payments, the biggest complaint is the low earning rate. This is the reality of make money apps however. It is likely that you will have to spend hundreds of hours playing different games to earn a reasonable amount of money.

Also, each game has a limit to the amount of money you can earn, meaning that you have to download new games frequently to start collecting coins afresh.

You can make more money by referring others using the AppStation referral program, however you should only really download this app for your pastime activities and not as a regular source of income.

Ensure you are familiar with the terms and conditions when using the app to avoid disappointment when it comes to payment.

Star Rating 2.5/5-An app that offers rewards for playing games. Some users however do report issues with payments, so cashing out early is recommended.

  1. Love the games it chose for me. I like to play them now that I’ve tried them. Only thing I’d change is more choices of new games, and now, even with the update I can’t get app station to open to check my progress. I give it 4 stars!

    1. Hi Crystal,
      Thanks for sharing your experience with AppStation. Sounds like overall you are pleased with the App. I hope you continue to enjoy the App and hope it offers more games for you to try soon.

  2. Good to know that AppStation is a legitimate side hustle. I like the idea of making money playing my favourite games. What I don’t like about AppStation is that the money is very small, earning has limited per game. I’m thinking of going for affiliate marketing just as you have said. I have read alot about it and I like it more.

    Good vibes!

  3. I am not a gamer. In fact, I didn’t even play one game online. I know there are real profs and huge gaming tournaments around the world, but somehow, I was never attracted to such games.

    The App you are promoting in your post seems to be a good one. It is free to join, available everywhere and probably fun to play with. But, it doesn’t seem to me to be a real opportunity related to earning online. It looks like you need to sit for hours and hours in front of it to earn even few bucks.

    And there are some other issues you mentioned in your post.
    However, it was interesting to read because I have got some insights into the “gamer world!”

    Thanks for sharing,
    best regards,

    1. Hi Igor,
      This App can earn you a few bucks but I think the main motivation is having fun playing the games. If you are into gaming then the rewards should be seen as a bonus rather than the main objective. Thanks for your comment.

  4. Hi, 

    Awesome post! I used the app station not too long ago.  Even though AppStation is a very legit app, the pay rate is too low.
    So,  I recommend it for those who enjoy and already play

    If you are thinking of installing AppStation just to earn a living (lol).give it a rethink  think again because it’s very discouraging!

    Thanks for the honest review. 

    1. Hi Jordan,
      Yes the pay is very low for this and other similar apps, although they are good fun nonetheless. Thanks for your comment.

  5. I recently came across AppStation because of the increased number of scams and products that under-delivers I always prefer to do my research online. Your review is a greater help and it saved me a lot of time.

    It’s free to join is good news and earning for playing is nice but as you mentioned the earning potential is very less. Also one of the main concern and red flag is when I read “Technical issues with payments”.

    Although AppStation is not a scam because of the above two reasons its a NO-NO for me.

    I loved how easy the review makes it for readers and you left no stone up-turned in explaining how it all works. Thanks a lot! 

    1. Hi Paul,
      Yes, it’s usually the case that there are some technical issues with these apps. But when the issues affect payment it can make you wary. This app is definitely not a scam, but issues with payments is very off putting.

        1. I’m unsure about that Matthew, you will need to contact their customer service team at AppStation to find out further.

  6. Hi there. Thanks for sharing your AppStation Review. This review is very helpful and insightful. However, the earning potential of AppStation just as you have said is low (for me, it’s extremely LOW) I can’t imagine myself playing a game for 1 hour and earn less than $2. That’s like total waste of time. I better look somewhere else, Like starting a website…

    1. Hi there,
      Yes I agree it is only a small reward for the amount of time you have to spend playing games, and your time would be better spent building an online business with Wealthy Affiliate. However if you’re not ready to commit to building a substantial online income then Apps like AppStation are a useful pastime that can earn you a few bucks.

  7. well i must say a pretty cool way to make a few bucks, simply playing your favourite games. I’m not a big player but I certainly have many friends who are and I’m sure that if they like the games enough there automatic sign ups. So I must just download on a refferal basis. I may even become a big player. Thanks for the information and good luck

    1. Hi Paul,
      Yes it’s better to refer people to money making apps via your website and create a passive income in doing so. Nevertheless The AppStation App is a fun App to use.

  8. Yeah the app is really a good one a gamer would love to be on,I got up to app about a month ago and have been earning  my coins,the good part of it is that  the registration is free and simple that any android  phone can play and also you get some coins for registration  wow! Is not that amazing I really love games and am happy am earning money from what I love doing most thanks for this post 

    1. Hi Rose,
      It’s great to hear from a user of the AppStation App. Glad to hear you are enjoying the experience. Thanks for your comment.

  9. What a great article, I have to register this today, how I wish it is supported in my country, I am a game addict and I never knew that this can be a business, leave alone the small earnings, so long as I can make money am ready to take it, I always spend more time playing games without any pay I think it’s time I upgrade, thank you for sharing the post, more happy to know that it’s free to join, can’t wait to see myself being part of it.

    Thank you.

    1. Hi Joy,
      The AppStation App is great for gamers, and you can earn (albeit a small amount) from it too. Please let us and our readers know how you get on, and particularly if you have any issues with payment. Thanks for your comment.
