How Smart App Works

With Smart App, you’ll need to apply to become a member. To apply you’ll answer a short survey about your personal details and your tech habits, including how often you use your smartphone.

If accepted, you’ll download the Smart App on your smartphone and keep it there. The app will usually give you surveys to answer. You’ll earn points by answering these questions about your technology habits.

Great service

It took some time but they got my password changed and old well that ends well! It wasn't really their fault as my e-mail got screwed up by yahoo! They were very nice and helpful! I love this site and am glad we finally got the problem solved! Still great service and panel!

No problems with Smart Panel

February 13, 2018 by Ann from United States

I was a bit surprised at all the negative comments. This is not my experience at all. I have been with this company for a few years. In the beginning, I did have an issue with the download being on my computer because it would just not be active from time to time. When the app is not active, they will notify you by e-mail. So I contacted Smart Panel and they got back to me right away via e-mail. I was told to uninstall and reinstall. I had to do this a few times and after that, I didn't have any problems. I don't really think about it being on my computer and I just let the money add up. I just recently viewed my account and had over a hundred dollars. I have the option to cash out with Paypal or Amazon. I used Paypal and when I went to cash out, I received a notice from Paypal within a few hours. So for me, they are a good company. They also offer surveys from time to time. They are not long and the pay is good.

So I've decided to make an account after I read all of the horrible reviews on this website and I can actually say that this website works! I signed up a couple of months ago but completely forgot about it until today and I was surprised to see that I've earned $25 dollars. 25 FREAKIN DOLLARS! Just for having an app on my laptop and phone for 4 months! I would've had more money but unfortunately I deleted the app after 4 months (I started 6 months ago btw) and would've earned an extra $15 for the 2 months and 6 month reward. I remember messaging them about a device that was on my account that I needed to be removed around the time I started and it took them FOREVER to respond. Today, when I logged in and tried to receive the $25 it didn't allow me to since I wasn't active on 2 devices that I ended up losing, and that kinda annoyed me because I thought I would have to wait for days for them to respond, but guess what? They responded in less than 10 minutes! So then I clicked the check out button and clicked PayPal but remembered a review that said it takes them forever to send the code and money, but that wasn't the case for me! I got the code immediately after and after I entered it, I got an email from PayPal saying that VertoSmart sent me money! I literally got so happy! But that isn't the best part; a few minutes ago I got an email saying that today was another month online so I got an extra $5 a few hours after I redeemed my $25! What a coincidence! All in all, this website is VERY trustworthy and gives you your rewards fast and easy, unlike other sites. I hope my review influenced your decision on joining this website, since it's such a great one. Oh, and I almost forgot. Many users complain about their phones slowing down after installing the necessarily VPN and I noticed too, but I found a bypass (shhhh, don't tell anyone!). On your iPhone, go to Settings>General>VPN and click on the i in a circle next to VPN Access and turn off Connect On Demand. It took me a while to find this since turning off Status simply didn't work (it kept turning back on), so I toyed around with the settings and now it works! Just remember to go into the SmartApp app and click on the Sync data button at least once a day (this is crucial so you still are "active" on your device) and I just asked Siri to remind me everyday at 7:30 PM. But yeah that's pretty much it, hope you enjoyed this review/storytime lol

Great site

I would recommend this site to everyone. Easy to use and you get paid monthly just to have their app installed.
