Ratings and Reviews
Loved it at first! but....
So I love this concept and enjoyed the app at first. I did not even mind the cap on time a day because I can not really listen to more than 6 hours anyway. They just updated the amount it costs to get rewards though and they went up by 10x. So instead of 200 points for $2 gift card it is now 2000 for $2. That is totally crazy! I have never seen an app jump that much in one go, and i use a ton of money making apps. I also have been waiting over a week for my first card that they said I would have in 24 hours so I am hoping that I can trust other reviews on here and assume this is a fluke. I am really upset about this change in costs though. I do not think that for the amount of time that I use the app that $2-$5 a month is too much to ask. No warning. Not cool readercoin, I think you are going to see a huge backlash to this. Also, I just noticed the costs to donate did not go up so it seems fishy, because a jump in costs of things should be across the board. 🙄. I hope they self correct at least a bit or I will be deleting very soon.
Update: I did get my card today after a week and a half instead of the 24 hours. That being said, I am so excited to use my card! Thanks readercoin.
Not Thrilled With Changes & Lack Of Communication
When I first downloaded this app, it was pretty great. I like the idea of reading or listening to new authors as well as the classics, all while earning coins for gift cards. After requesting my first gift card, I received it within 24 hours, which says a lot about the legitimacy of the app. However, with no notice to readers and listeners, the amounts for each reward recently skyrocketed. I understand that there was fraudulent activity, and that amounts needed to be adjusted, but the current amounts are far too high, considering there is a cap on how much credit you can get daily. Even if you are earning at the max level, it will take nearly two months to earn a $5 reward. While I understand that you can’t just give away money, i feel like it’s reasonable to be able to earn a $5 reward at least every month. If an app offers a reward, it shouldn’t be so difficult to obtain enough credits to redeem what’s being offered.
There has also been way more instances of my time not being recorded lately. It’s really frustrating. In the very least, there should be far more communication.
Why the prize cost increase?
I was really working hard toward the $1,000 PayPal cash. If I read the maximum 6 hours every day, it would take about a year and a quarter to make the 30k points needed. That was totally doable and I had no problem waiting and saving to earn that. Now, it costs 399k points? That’s insane, and there probably aren’t enough books on the app to carry me through that long (for the record, that’s over 15 YEARS of reading 6 hours every day), especially if points only count the first time you read a book. I’m so close to deleting this app after MONTHS of working to get the points I have. The reward is not worth the insane amount of effort you have to put into this. To make matters worse, the app has had trouble recording points earned, so sometimes you don’t even earn what you should have. Oops, looks like it’s going to take 16 years to earn that $1,000.
