Apps Of The Week: Ibotta, Pinbook, Recent, Thin Reads, And Upwords
You’ll need an iPhone app this week to save money on those pesky necessities like groceries, so you can buy more apps.
On the iPad we call a mulligan on a Pinboard browser, and for the Mac, we have an app that gives you a quick history lesson.
On the web we’ve got a guide to short ebooks. If you’re still digging Words with Friends, but were looking for a taller challenge, try our game of the week.iPhone/iPod Touch: Ibotta
The idea of coupons always seems like a good idea until you’re either knee deep in scraps of the mostly unread Sunday Paper, or you’re bottoming out your toner cartridge. Ibotta seeks to give you refunds and coupons without the scissors or even having to remember anything when you leave for the store. Ibotta gives you a list of products and the amount you can potentially earn from buying them. In addition to buying them, you can watch commercials, take polls, or get facts about the product.
The payouts range from $.25 to $.75, meaning you aren’t going to get rich. After you complete your various tasks, you take a picture of your receipt making sure that product codes are visible and you can get a payment sent to your Paypal account.
