Parents Need to Know
Is It Any Good?
With no options for a private account and the questionably sustainable referral system for earning money, this video app should be used with caution. The content is mostly recycled from other social media sites with few original content creators. There's no connection in the comments since the bulk of commenters are asking people to use their referral code to make money or soliciting followers for the same reason. The gift card rewards are legit. Watching videos only earns pennies a day, but referring friends who then use the app does pay off. Though there are options for pay-outs in cash or gift cards, the cash pay-out option is frequently down. Ultimately, Zynn is a pyramid scheme in app form that isn't really encouraging creativity or connection, but is profiting off of users' information and contact list. Though it may seem like easy money and gift cards, there are lots of user reviews indicating that it's very difficult to acutally earn money and receive it. Meanwhile, the app collects an enormous amount of device information. So, while you may get a free pizza out of using Zynn, they're likely getting more -- by using you.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
