Earning a little cash for doing next to nothing sure sounds good, doesn’t it? If you’re willing to hand over control of your Android lockscreen to a new app called Locket, you can earn money just by swiping to unlock.
Locket says that the ad space on your Android lockscreen is the the most valuable around, which makes sense. You can’t access your fancy, multi-hundred-dollar smartphone’s functionality without first swiping past it, after all. Join Locket’s captive audience, and you’ll get paid for the same action you’re already doing anyway.
The difference, of course, is that your custom background will be replaced by an advertisement. You don’t have to interact with it, however. If you’re interested and want to take advantage of a special offer or watch a brief trailer, swipe to the left. Not so keen on what’s being pitched? Swipe to the right to access your phone like you normally would.
