Smart App closed their panel and app in May, 2021. If you have the Smart App mobile app installed on your phone, be sure to uninstall it.

In December 2019, Smart Panel renamed itself as Smart App. If you're looking for Smart App Reviews, please refer to the reviews below.

Smart App is a smartphone app that allows you to answer questions about your tech habits - and you will be paid well for your time.

With Smart Panel App, you can help your favorite web sites, apps, tech companies, and mobile carriers give you better services and more features. Download the Smart App and anonymously share your data. All data collected is encrypted, secured, and protected – Smart App is owned and operated by Verto Analytics Research firm.

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.

The app will track your smartphone usage and share your habits from using this smartphone device. It reportedly uses around 3MB of data per month and causes an extra 1-5% reduction of battery life. You may have to download a VPN onto your device too.

After you have kept the app on your phone for 30 days, you can convert the points earned into rewards for the first time.

Real But A Lot Of Glitches

April 24, 2015 by John from United States

I joined Smart Panel on the 12th of January. Had no trouble downloading to my computer but did have trouble downloading to my phone. Eight days later it was fixed. I was able to collect my first $25.00 payment with no problem. (I'm guessing the $10 is per device.) Yes, this is a spy program, but I don't expect privacy on the Net anyway. My only beef is it is the apparent cause of my having occasional error messages when I turn my computer on that "the proxy server is not responding". Since I've learned how to fix that manually, I decided freaking out about it wasn't worth giving up the income.

I am editing this and lowering my star count from 4 to 3 because I suspect (no proof yet) that the software is interfering with my ability to log into surveys at Pinecone Research. If this is the case, I will be quitting Smart Panel.

I am editing this a second time and lowering my star count to 2. Suddenly, less than two months after I started, the Smart Panel software on my computer quit sending to them and I got kicked off. I also noticed my ability to do Pinecone Research surveys came back. I make more money with those anyway.

The only reason I am giving Smart Panel 2 stars instead of 1 or 0 is they did pay me at the beginning, so I believe they are legitimate, but the technological flaws are just terrible!

Easy money

I have had the software on my desktop PC for over 3 months and have not had any problems. It is a small software that does slow down your PC.

Probably the worst.

I installed all of the apps on my devices I use most, and all they did was email me REPETITIVELY that I apparently didn't have them installed. I'm talking at least every 3 days I get a new email from VertoSmart saying I need to install their apps and that I'm running out of time to do so. I've emailed them when I had trouble with the app on my phone and it took them a week plus to get back to me on it. Right when everything was okay and in the clear, SmartPanel sends me emails about how I need to install the apps. I go on my account to verify that I installed them (which I did to begin with), just for them to be magically 'not installed' on my account even though they were all on my devices listed. This company is frustrating, customer service is as useful as a box of rocks- you'll have better luck riding an elephant at a zoo than you will getting any correspondence from VertoSmart.

Like what others have said on here, they replied to my message once saying I didn't have anything installed, etc, yet I have proof/photos of everything installed properly, VPN active, etc. It's frustrating because like many of us on here, we're just trying to earn a few extra bucks for our family.. I'm literally so upset that I cannot take out the $15 (should be $25 by now I think). That $15 can help us out so much right now. They're not responding though I've been very patient in waiting to see if they will help out, but no answer yet. Possibly a scam? How do we report it to the BBB, or somewhere else? If we "agreed" to their installing VPN on our devices, but they don't reward like they said they would, wouldn't that still be illegal on their part? Anyway, rant over. I don't know what to do. Still holding on for that $15. It may not be a lot to some people, but it can pay for my toddler's diapers!

Ripoff alert!

I had this software installed on 3 devices that I frequently use. Despite verifying that the software was opened and synced on all devices, I got multiple emails stating that I was going to be cancelled if I didn't turn on the software. I emailed them repeatedly and told them the software was on, on ALL devices, yet the emails kept coming. Finally, about a month after installing (of course, the amount of time it takes for you to claim your rewards) they said I was disqualified. So I emailed them again, and again. Nothin. They just want to take your data, slow down your computers, and cancel before you can claim any rewards.
