Today we’ll be focusing on the Swagbucks app. This app is available for both iOS and Android devices, however, the video section is currently only available on Android devices.

Download the Swagbucks app here:

appstore  playstore

Once you’ve downloaded the app, sign in with your Swagbucks details.

The Swagbucks app is a multipurpose app. It has several sections and you can earn in a different way from each section.

NB: Veteran Swagbucks users will advise you not to use the app regularly for anything other than videos.  It tends to crash often, especially while taking surveys.  You’d be better off using the mobile website than the app for the most part.  Howeverm for the daily videos it’s extremely useful.


NB: The Swagbucks app is not designed for iPad and can only be found in the iPhone section of the App Store.

On an iOS device, you can currently on shop or answer surveys. Unfortunately, they removed the watch and discover sections a few months ago. We live in hope that they’ll be back.

If you’ve had the app a while and didn’t update, you’ll still have watch and discover (yay).

The Android app has everything the iOS doesn’t.  However, it’s still advisable to use Swagbucks mainly onthe website rather than through the app as, in general, you’ll have fewer issues.

When watching videos on the Swagbucks app we recommend going to the Home & Garden section as there are several 10 second videos there which can make your viewing time shorter.  Let the videos run until the app says you’ve reached your total for the day.  Sometimes you may get bonus rounds, these are great and will add to your daily earnings.
