Hi, I’m Stan. I created this website because I really enjoy earning money with apps on my phone and I think most people would like to learn how to turn their smartphone into an extra paycheck. Back in 2010 I was told by my Doctor that I really needed to find a way to make a living by selling stuff online due to a disability that prevents me from doing many types of jobs. I am also a single father of a beautiful 8 year old girl named Zoe, who has been diagnosed with Dravet Syndrome and requires my full attention. We have really struggled to control Zoe’s seizures but we have made some great progress by using the ketogenic diet.
I have a great deal of business and computer experience but I really didn’t have a clue how to even start making money online. Initially, I created a blog called StansBlog.com,where I wrote about all kinds of random things. I first realized I could make money with my phone very shortly after that when I discovered CheckPoints. Soon after finding CheckPoints, I discovered Field Agent and by that time I was hooked. I continued to seek out more apps that pay you and I wrote little articles about them on StansBlog.com and on my Squidoo Lenses. Initially I thought it would be really cool if I could cover the cost of my phone bill with these apps. I was surprised by how popular my little articles had become.
While testing these apps, I have unfortunately run into several apps that don’t pay you and some that have even caused me to lose money. It started to become apparent to me that there was a real need for a website devoted to teaching people how to make money with their phones the right way and how avoid apps that don’t pay. That is why I started AppsThatPayYou.com around January of 2012 and the response has been incredible so far.
