In this AppNana review, you’ll read:

  • Is AppNana legit?
  • Can you earn some extra cash playing games?
  • Is AppNana available for iPhone?
  • What are AppNana hacks?

I will explain everything you need to know about this popular application!

Let’s start:

What is AppNana?

AppNana Gift Cards.jpg

AppNana is a mobile application developed by Mapiz inc which gives you rewards (Nana credits) for downloading new mobile games and applications.

You can exchange these Nana credits with Amazon, iTunes, Google Play, Xbox, and Steam gift cards.

They will send you the gift cards by email within 48 hours.

The registration is free, and it rewards you 10,000 Nanas as a bonus when you join the app.

But don’t get excited because each 30,000 Nanas equals $1. So, 10,000 Nanas is almost equal to 30 cents. Not a very generous bonus!

Let’s see other ways you can get more Nanas.

How Can You Get Free Nanas?

There are five ways to earn free Nanas:

  1. Download and use applications and games and earn 1k – 30k Nanas
  2. Refer your friends and earn 2500 Nanas for each referral
  3. Watch videos and make 5 Nanas for each video
  4. Stay active and make 400 Nanas for each day
  5. Play in-app games and earn between 500-1000 Nanas

Here are a few applications I can see in the “Get Nanas” tap right now:

Amounts of free Nanas to earn

As you can see, the task is more challenging when the rewards are higher.

For example, you can install a particular app and lunch it to earn 1,700 Nanas. But installing the app is not enough to make 3,800 Nanas, and you should also reach 300 coins inside the app to earn the reward.

Even though the number of Nanas is high, the real potential behind this app is minimal.

To illustrate this

I will calculate the approximate amount of money you can earn in a single month using the app for 4 hours per day.

Here is an example scenario:

  • Downloading and using 15 applications ~ 40,000 Nanas
  • Playing in-app games for 2 hours each day ~ 20,000 Nanas per month
  • Referring five friends ~ 12,500 Nanas
  • Watch 20 videos each day ~ 3,000 Nanas per month
  • Stay active all days ~ 12,000 Nanas per month

Adding all the above rewards, you will earn a maximum of 87,500 Nanas. This is less than the reward for getting a $5 Amazon gift card. Consider that this is the maximum you can earn if you spend approximately 4 hours every day.

As you can see, the real opportunity is very limited with AppNana.

Is Appnana Legit or SCAM?

Appnana is legit.

The app is registered both on GooglePlay and AppStore.

It’s been downloaded more than 500,000 times inside the Google play store with a rating of 4+.

I couldn’t find any major complaints about it. Most negative reviews are from people who are not happy with their low earnings.


Many scams are promoting fake hacks to get unlimited Nanas for free.

Can You Hack AppNana To Earn More Rewards?

The short answer is a solid No!

All the tricks, hacks, and referral bots are fake, and websites promoting them are SCAMS. BE AWARE!

Here are a few examples.

When you search AppNana Hack in Google, one of the first results is NanaHack(dot)co.

When you start the hack, here is watch you see:

AppNana Hack Fake Website

The first thing to mention is that the URL is changed to

But the more critical problem is the way it works. There is a button for enabling encryption.

It’s just a fake button to earn your trust.

This website is not even using the HTTPS protocol.

Even the communication between your browser and the website is not secured.

This contradiction is an obvious SCAM ALERT!

Do not put any information on these websites.

Another scam website is AppNana(dot)co which claims it can send bot referrals to your account for unlimited Nanas.

You can also find a warning inside the main app about this scam:

AppNana scam warning

You may see videos of people earning Nanas for fake referrals.

All of them are easily traceable by the AppNana team, and they cannot get gift cards for credits coming from referring bots.

Don’t let these scams steal your personal information or your money.

Good News About AppNana

Here is the good news that you might like:

  • It’s not a scam. It’s a popular application with many downloads in the Google play store and the App Store.
  • It’s fun to play the in-app games.
  • The registration is simple and free. You can join with your email address.
  • You will try new apps and games.
  • If you are a developer, you can quickly promote your new application and put it in front of a vast audience.

Bad News About AppNana

Here are the facts that you won’t like:

  • The earning opportunity is minimal. Even for earning as little as $2, you should spend a lot of time playing with the app every day.
  • High-rewarding tasks are sometimes really hard. For example, you may spend hours playing a game to get enough scores to earn the Nanas.
  • It’s sometimes addictive, and you may waste a lot of time downloading and playing new games.

Psychology Behind AppNana

I want to talk about the psychology behind this app briefly.

It is designed in a way that you enjoy earning rewards with high numbers. When you reach 10,000 Nanas, your brain feels good, creating positive feedback.

Even though Nanas are practically worthless, you will like to earn more of them.

It is similar to game scores. All games have a scoring system that gives you this sense of pleasure and creates positive feedback to make your brain addicted.

It’s also free and fun.

They attracted so many visitors and kept them engaged in this way. The developers are generating a ton of money through advertisements.

Other play-to-earn games like Lucky Chip Spin and Candy Crack work the same way.

The problem with all of them is that it wastes your time, your most precious asset.

Who Can Benefit From AppNana?

Developers of mobile games and applications can benefit from this app.

If you have developed a new application or game, you can put it in front of a vast audience in AppNana, and lots of them will download and try your app.

Especially for addictive games, this promoting method works well.

Can You Download AppNana For PC?

Official versions of the app are only available for android and iOS. There is no such thing as AppNana PC version.


Softwares like BlueStack allow you to run mobile apps within your PC in windows and mac.

But you should know that the experience is not as smooth as if you used your mobile device. So, it’s better not to run AppNana on your PC using these third-party softwares.

Conclusion – Does it Worth the Download?

AppNana is a legit application. It is free to join, and you can safely explore it.

However, the reward rate is meager, and it will take you quite a while to earn even $2.

So, it does not worth your time.

You may find it fun to play the games or download the apps, but you will never be satisfied with the rewards you can earn.

     I just signed up for this app and wanted to know if it was worth it or not. This article had everything I wanted to know about AppNana. So, from the review I understood that this is not a scam but it has less opportunities to earn. 

    Thank you so much for the insightful review on the AppNana. It was really easy to understand and read the review.

      You are right. If you want to earn money online, AppNana is a total waste of time. Thanks for the kind words.

    As a mobile app developer I can tell you that apps like AppNana do work.  Most of the time the problem is that the users don’t stay around.  Why?  Because the only installed the app to get rewards.  After using the app just long enough to get the max reward, they uninstall and move to the next.  While this helps me with overall downloads, it doesn’t result in increased in-app purchases or purchases of the paid version.

    And as you mentioned the time to $$$ ratio is WAY OFF!  There are soooo many more rewarding things you can do with that time that will earn you way more than $5 at Amazon.  As an example, why not blog or create your own YouTube videos?  That is at least rewarding and has the potential of making you a lot more money!

    Thanks for sharing and hopefully saving people from wasting their time!

      Thanks for sharing your insights. It makes sense if it does not work for promoting applications because as you mentioned, people who are downloading the apps are just looking for more rewards. Probably, it should work better for promoting games because they are addicting and people may continue playing for a while.
