Google Opinion Rewards, the company’s most underrated app, has finally landed on iPhone.

For the first time, iOS users have the chance to answer surveys that earn them real cash. More than 10 million people are already using the service on Android.

Opinion Rewards is a genuine and incredibly easy way to earn real money. Google sends out more than 3 million surveys every week from companies big and small. You get the chance to answer some of them and you get paid up to $1 a time for your efforts.

The surveys are quick to complete; each one is comprised of ten questions or less, and some include just one. Nearly all take less than 30 seconds to answer, and are based on a range of topics from hit TV shows to retail stores you visit regularly.

Google will send you a notification (if you allow it to) when a new survey is available to you.

How do you get paid?

On Android, Google rewards participants with Play Store credit. This can be redeemed against apps, in-app purchases, music, movies, TV shows, and more.

On iPhone, however, your cash is paid directly into your PayPal account, so you can spend it on whatever you like.

What’s the catch?

There is no catch. That’s what’s great about Opinion Rewards. You earn real money for completing a simple task. And although it’s only a maximum of $1 per survey, that soon adds up if you take part regularly.

You can skip the surveys you don’t want to complete, and you won’t be penalized for doing so.

Where do you sign up?

Simply download the Opinion Rewards app from the App Store to get started. Sign in with your Google account, and you’ll start receiving surveys every so often.

For now, the app is only available in the U.S. However, Opinion Rewards is available in other countries on Android, so we’re hoping the iOS version will expand its reach soon.
