FunTap Review: Get Paid to Play Games

Some of the links may be from a sponsor. Advertising Disclosure

FunTap is an Android only app that pays you to play games and is one of the many like this on the app market.  You will never make money with these apps but it’s something if you want to try out new games and at least get rewarded in doing so.  I wanted to dig deeper into this app because it had quite the rating (4.9/5) on the Google Play Store.  That’s pretty good for an app such as this.

Whether you want to find more apps that pay you to play games or you came across the FunTap name, I wanted to show you how this app works in detail as well as what you can expect out of the app.

As in all of my reviews, I’m always 100% honest, only recommending what I feel is worth your time.  Let’s begin.

What is FunTap?

FunTap rewards you to play games, but only the games that show up on your screen.  It’s very similar to most “get paid to play games” apps, only that you won’t see as many games as most, at least in my research.  As I will show you next, it’s as simple as opening the game, completing the tasks and getting rewarded for your time.

As for who runs it, I could only find a LinkedIn page, which noted they were founded in 2015 with a mission of “delivering exceptional entertainment experience and knowledge value to the community via platform services and desire to become one among the leading and respected technology companies in South East Asia.”  The company has since grown to more than 42 million customers throughout the world.

Playing Games and Earning Rewards

When you download the app, you will immediately be able to view the games that you can play.  It will look something like this.

As you can see, there will be a list of games, which you can choose from.  There are usually a number of apps to choose from, but this can change at any moment.

All you have to do is click on the “play” button if you see a game you like and download the app.  Once you install it, you will then have to come back to FunTap and look for the game you installed to start playing.  It’s important you play the game directly from the FunTap app, not the main app so that you’re rewarded for your time.  This is how they are going to track your progress.

As to how you can get rewarded, it is different than most game playing games that I have researched.  Most of the time, the app will tell you what you have to do to get a certain number of rewards, such as reaching a certain level or playing a certain number of minutes.

FunTap is different in that you will have to watch an ad to earn your reward.  Essentially, every ad you watch will earn you credits, which you can cash out for in the future. However, since FunTap gets rewarded for you to simply download the app, your earnings for that one app you play will be quite low the longer you play it.  The strategy is to download as many apps as possible to increase your chances of earning more.

In the end, the more you play, the more you can make whenever you watch ads.

How Much Can You Make?

As noted, you will make money for every ad you watch, but how much you make will depend on how much you’re willing to play.

On average, plan on making about $0.04 to $0.08 in coins for every ad you watch.  These coins reduce as you play the same ad, so don’t expect much.

And, yes, it’s a very low reward rate because the ads don’t play all that often, which means you will only make maybe $0.25 per hour, if not less.

Getting Paid

For every ad you watch, you will earn a certain number of coins, in which you can then exchange for a variety of rewards, which includes Amazon, PayPal and Google Play.

As you can see from that screen, you will need at least 20,000 coins, which is equal to $20 in PayPal cash.   Every 10,000 coins is worth about $10 in value and you will need at least $30 in rewards to get your payout.

Signing Up

If you’re interested in signing up for an account after reading all of this, then you can do so via the Google Play Store.  It’s not available on iTunes nor can you use it on your desktop.  It’s an app only open to mostly Android devices and is 100% free to join.

The app is available worldwide and you can get started immediately when you download it.  For downloading it, you will earn 5,000 coins, a $5 value.

As there’s no registration process involved, it’s only tied to your device you download it on.  So, if you get a new phone, you won’t be able to transfer your coins.  I just want you to keep it in mind that it’s only available on the device you’re using at the moment.

Final Thoughts

2/10FunTap is meh.  If you like playing okay games and watching TONS of ads only to earn a few pennies, then go for it.  To me, I find it more annoying than rewarding.  I didn’t find any of the games to be all that great, either.

I wouldn’t say it’s the best way to play games as there are many more options that are much better if you’re looking for something like this.

Plus, let’s not forget it could take weeks before you hit the $30 threshold.  It’s not a good use of time, unfortunately.

That’s going to do it for now.
