WHAT IS PLAYTIME? (Android Only)
Playtime lets you earn multiple rewards as you play further into the app (by time or by levels). The rewards will increase the more you play and the further you advance.
As an example, you could earn 15 points for playing 1 minute, 50 points for 5 more minutes, 100 points for 30 minutes, etc,....
WHY DO I HAVE TO ALLOW THESE PERMISSIONS TO TRY PLAYTIME?
This is required because our partners/advertisers needs a way to verify the amount of time you spent playing in the apps you've dowloaded from playtime, and to check whether the app is installed or not. It is also used to match you with the games / apps that you will most likely be interested in.
You will receive a some bonuses for trying out Playtime and accepting their Terms of Service.
WHEN ARE REWARDS ISSUED?
You should see a message appear in the app when you meet the threshold. Reward should be added to your appKarma account shortly (within 15 minutes)
IS THERE A LIMIT TO HOW MUCH I CAN EARN FOR EACH OFFER?
Yes, typically, the highest level you get reach is around level 37. After this, you may stop earning Playtime Rewards.
HOW IS PLAYTIME DIFFERENT THAN REGULAR OFFERS?
More and more offers now require you to spend a long time in order to reach the offer requirement (Install + Reach level 20). Even though the rewards are often large, it often takes a long time. Playtime lets you earn some rewards as you play along so even if you end up not wanting to play with the app, you'll still earn partial points.
I DON'T SEE THE PLAYTIME BUTTON ANYMORE
We hide the Playtime button if there are no Playtime offers available to you. Whether there are offers available is determined by our partner who controls the Playtime offer wall. We don't have any control over this. The following are reasons why you may not see the Playtime button.
- There are no offers available at the moment
- There may be no offers that matches you
- The partner has detected suspicious activity and is returning 0 offers to us
IF I INSTALL AN APP FOR PLAYTIME, CAN I STILL EARN REWARD IF I DOWNLOAD THE SAME APP FROM THE OFFER WALL?
No. Remember, once you install an app, you will only get rewarded for it once (non-playtime offer) based on the conversion requirement at the time you selected the offer. Similar rule applies for Playtime offers - once you install a Playtime offer, you will no longer be rewarded if you try to install the same app from our offer wall
I AM GETTING FEWER POINTS THAN WHAT THE OFFER WAS SHOWING
You may see a reduction in points for certain Playtime offers. (this affects only a small number of offers). We have discovered some of these offers are mistakenly displaying points that are too high so they are adjusted when the points are added to your account.
We have brought up the issue with our partner but have not seen a fix for this problem yet. This adjustment had to be made in order to continue to offer Playtime rewards as a reward option.
