Chances are that your Android phone is rocking a boring background right now. How about one that can help you earn money? Easy now, you won’t get rich, but you can make a few bucks maybe.
Locket has just launched in the Google Play Store and it allows a limited number of advertisers to place ads on your lock screen and then they pay you one cent for each time you unlock. Yes there is a cap and that is $0.03 per hour. Like I said, you won’t get rich.
You can cash out, put the funds on a gift card or donate your earnings to a charity. I guess it is a clever way to advertise, but I think people are going to want more incentive. As Engadget points out, you can earn $262.80 by unlocking your phone’s screen three times a day, 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. I’d rather just do something fun.
