Making Money from an App?

This app pays you for engaging in tasks that basically advertise local businesses. For 10 cent rewards you do simple things- mainly photographing the business. For higher paying rewards you do more, such as photographing yourself at the location, or enjoying a product at the location. The higher the pay, the more involved you must be- I've seen one $5 task where you have to engage a restaurant's wait staff in your photography mission.
I've owned WeReward for a few months and have been "rewarded" $4.98 for 34 check-ins. Not much money. Some people have made more in a shorter period of time by doing higher-earning check-ins. Once you reach $10 you can cash in, meaning send your money to a bank account such as Pay Pal.
This app is best for people who are out a lot- chauffeurs and taxi drivers, for example. OK, maybe I'm exaggerating, but you do have to get out often to make anything more than pocket change in a short amount of time. Now, some "tasks" can involve photographing items you've brought home from the store- this is good for people like me who are car-challenged and don't live in an area with many businesses. For example, you might find a task worth 50 cents that requires you to photograph yourself cooking with a particular product. Occasionally there will be specials: earn $5 photographing yourself with your food at a particular restaurant over the next week, for example, or buy a domain at GoDaddy.com for $5. Some of these tasks aren't worth the cost, while others might fit in with tasks you would have engaged in already. By the way, these specials are not pushed to you, so it's easy to miss them. What are pushed, though, are the messages telling you when a submission has been rewarded: a couple of oinks and a popup message are a fun way to let you know you've earned your latest 10 or 50 cents.
