App Flame Review: Get Paid To Play Games?

The App Flame app will reward you to play games.

If you love playing games, then you can earn extra money, but the question is how much?

In today’s review, I want to talk about the App Flame app.  I will tell you how it works, how much you can make as well as what I, as well as others, think.  Like always, I’m always 100% honest and only recommend what I feel is worth your time.

What is App Flame?

App Flame is an app that rewards you to play games.   The app gives you a list to choose from and you get rewarded based on how long you play them.  I will get into that later.

The app was created by the App Flame Company, a company I couldn’t find much information about.  As I’m writing this, it has a decent 4.1/5 rating and more than 5 MILLION downloads.

To get started, you just need to download the app via the Google Play Store.  At the moment, it isn’t available for iTunes, but if it ever is, I will be sure to update this portion.

It is 100% free and there are no in-app purchases nor are there any advertisements.  It’s 100% risk free!

Downloading the App

To start, the app will ask you to either connect your Facebook or Google account.  If you’re not comfortable with doing that, then you can register with your email.  No matter what you do, it will take you to the same dashboard.

As a note, if you register with your email, they will ask for just your age and gender.


Upon joining, the app will direct you to a page that looks something like this:

As you can see, you can choose to earn with apps or you can earn with surveys.  I don’t recommend the surveys as there are much better apps to make you money in this industry.  Instead, you will want to focus on the apps section.

In clicking on the apps tab, it will then take you to a long list of apps you can then click on to start earning “flames.”  This is what it will look like.

Keep in mind that this list continues for quite some time.  For instance, when I was writing this review, I saw more than 20+ apps I could download.

Playing the Games and Getting Paid

So, now, let’s look at an example.  I will take that first game, Coin Master, and see what we need to do in order to get paid.  Do keep in mind that it isn’t as easy and downloading the game and getting paid.  You will have to perform a certain action in order to get rewarded, so please keep this in mind.

To know what’s expected of you, simply click on the app and then read the directions.

So, in this case, you would have to “play the game until you reach the EIGHT VILLAGE” and “you must be a new player.”

As long as you meet these requirements, then you will earn the coins noted.  In this case, 37,948 coins.

Before you click on any app, just pay attention to that small snippet on the list that tells you how hard it is to receive the reward.  It will look something like this:

The hard options, of course, will be harder to achieve the reward, whereas an easy reward may only take a step or two, which may only require five minutes of your time.  Again, just make sure that you read what’s expected of you so that you earn your reward.

What Are the Flame Points Worth?

Unfortunately, the app doesn’t use a simple cash approach.  Instead, they use “flame points/coins,” or whatever you want to call them, and you can see how many coins you can earn next to each offer before you attempt to complete it.

When it comes time to cash out, the app offers a variety of rewards, including the following options:

  • PayPal
  • Amazon
  • PlayStation Store
  • BJ’s
  • Starbucks
  • Nike
  • TGI Fridays
  • Walmart
  • Xbox
  • Google Play

These rewards are subject to change, but not that often.  Your best reward options, PayPal and Amazon, are available, so there’s no concern there.

As for the value, a $10 gift card will cost you 93,188 in coins.  It’s an odd conversion, but I just say that every 10,000~ points are worth a pinch less than $1.  This is a simple ratio to understand, I suppose.

Payouts can take five to seven days to arrive.

What Are Others Saying

Of course, these reviews aren’t just about my personal reviews.  I like to see what others are saying as well.

The Pros:

  • a way to try new apps
  • sign-up bonus available
  • free to join
  • legitimate company

The Cons:

  • a lot of junk apps (be careful)
  • low income opportunity
  • Android only

Final Thoughts

5/10If you like trying out new apps, it’s okay.   What you’re going to find out is that there are a lot of apps like this on the app stores, many of which offer the same apps.  While some apps can be fun to play, you’re not going to get rich doing this.  I’m talking maybe $10 a month if that.  Since so many of these apps that you need to download can take hours to reach your milestones, you may find the time investment not worth it.  Your results will vary.  I don’t know how much you want to make.

App Flame isn’t the only app that pays you to download apps as there are many others, as seen in this post.  Be sure to check out that post if you’re interested in downloading apps and getting paid.  As long as you have the mindset that you won’t get rich, it can be somewhat decent.  I just see it as a way to check out new apps and get rewarded.

That’s going to do it for now.
