OfferedApp is a new website that brings the “complete an offer” model to free BlackBerry apps. Essentially they offer up a free app every day if you complete one of four available offers. I am not sure how I feel about this model but there definitely are ways to get the app for free from OfferedApp. For example, today’s app is SmartWiFi and users can get the app by downloading a free MobileXpression app or completing a single NPD survey which both don’t really require payment from the user. Keep in mind you may get spammed on the email or information you provide so this is definitely a “know the risks” situation.
While this kind of “complete an offer” model for free apps may not bee for everybody it has been very popular in other networks like social games for virtual goods or currency. The way it works is that the paid app offered for free is supported by advertisers that cover the cost of the app.
If this sounds like something you would do check out www.offeredapp.com for the daily deal.
