Mobile Performance Meter is the app that sends you gift cards for doing nothing but using your phone

Mobile Performance Meter is an app available from the Google Play Store. The app collects some information from your handset (more on that below), although you do not give out personal information. Each day that you have the Meter running is worth 20 points to you, and after collecting 500 points, you can redeem it for a $5 gift card from a number of retailers including Sears, Papa John's, Overstock.com, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and many more...

Judging from the retailers, I can safely conclude that this is not for my country

This could be just NSAs front. I'm not falling for this, keep your meter points.

Well if they gave a crap about you they'd already be watching you. Why fight it?
I, for one, welcome our new insect overlords.

scam? 10,000 points for =$100 gift card
BUT 20 points a day is 365*20=7,300
plus surveys 150 points * 12 months = 1,800
thats 9,100 points total you can earn in a year.

Lol. Well here goes nothing. I signed up with my AT&T and T-Mobile phones. I'm aiming to get a bunch of Amazon gift cards to buy more phone accessories. My phones can work to pay for their own accessories! Get a job hippy phone!

Besides the absurd permissions to reroute outgoing calls and receiving text, it's at least a battery hog for requiring precise GPS location and preventing sleep mode. I'd skip the lentil soup...

If I could make $50 a month I'd consider it. How about if my phone service wants the info that bad they just credit my account and I'll fill out a survey on how bad they suck from time to time?
