Countries: United Kingdom, Spain

What is it?
Qustodian is a fee App which sends you targeted and relevant ads, offers, deals, movie trailers and restaurant vouchers for some great brands.

The App runs in the background (but consumes almost no power or battery) and each day you get a small chime to say that an ad or offer has arrived. Some days you might get more than one, but they never bombard you.

Each time you view an ad or offer, you get paid a small amount. The advertiser pays Qustodian for this and Qustodian shares a portion with you.

You collect the money in what is called your "Yoad", which is stored on your account. Once your Yoad is over £10 or 10 Euros, you can request the money via your bank account or PayPal.

What's more, you can sign up your friends and get paid a share of their Yoad each time they view an ad!

How does it work?
Simply sign up at Qustodian UK or Qustodian Spain, depending on where you live.

You will be asked for your name, phone number, gender and postcode. The latter simply helps the advertiser target their ads or offers at certain demographics and is not used publicly in any way.

You will also be asked if you have a flat rate internet connection on your phone. If you don't, you can answer Yes anyway, but just be careful your data charges don't go over your limit. Qustodian do compress the images and videos that they send you, so they aren't too data-intensive.

After entering your basic details, you can then use a few simple scroll bars to tell Qustodian which things you like, such as Health & Beauty, Music & Entertainment, Sports and so on. This will help tailor the ads and offers to your interests.

Once you have completed the brief sign-up form, you will be send a text message with a link to download the phone App.

Once installed, run the App and you're on your way to earning easy money!

What's in it for me?
You should get between 2 - 16p (or cents if you live in Spain) for each ad or offer you view. This should increase over time and depends on the advertiser.

When you reach £10 or 10 Euros, you can request a payment from them.

We have been using Qustodian for awhile now and it really is a simple and innovative product and the ads aren't boring or too pushy.

Are their any catches?
None that we have seen. The payouts are not massive, but if you sign up a few friends then you can earn some decent money.

The App runs on every type of phone and will automatically detect which operating system you run.

An unlimited data connection is requested, but not strictly required. They do ask you to tick this box on the sign-up page however to cover themselves from complaints about high data charges.
