    Not that I've seen. I'm lead to believe that the expiration date is one year from when you last complete a survey. Regardless of how much you have in your wallet already, and when they were accumulated.

    e.g.
    $1 earned on 01/01/17 - expiration date: 01/01/18
    $1 earned on 01/02/17 - new expiration date: 01/02/18 when $2 will expire.
    You won't lose $1 on 01/01/18.

    Google's account settings changed some time in the past. You used to be able to see the tally of your earnings, but I can't find it now. At least on desktop. I haven't tried looking through my phone app.

    in regards to the google rewards app can anyone shed some light on this?

    I'm only getting 1 survey every 3-4 days and it's just google asking me general questions such as "are you renting or do you own your residence?" "have you visited one of these 4 places in the last day?"

    how do i increase the amount of surveys i get? i have location on and have walked around past a lot of stores but still nothing

    Make sure your power saving software isn't putting it to sleep too.

    I get them in bursts. Nothing for 2 months, then about 10 in 3 days, then nothing again.
    Edit. Spoke too soon. Just got a survey. Only one question but 10c for free.

    I get less than that because I'm a home body. I got one today for the Google apps I use (Drive, Translate, etc.) up to $7.98 at the moment but I don;t even know what to use it on.

    They expire after 1 year, as said

    Hey I've just jumped from Xperia Z to Moto G5 Plus and looking for a podcast app.

    I used the Sony Audio app on the Xperia and that worked a treat - but what is a decent app podcosts now?

    Zlauncher. So easy and uncluttered.
    Icons change on screen depending on time of day/usage habbits.

    Widgets/notification intergration isnt great

    Anyone wanting the new pixel launcher look. Action Launcher have been great at updating their look. Been a Nova fanboi for years but can't wait any longer for them to keep up.
    Action Launcher also has some great folder features I haven't seen elsewhere

    Don't think so, they seem to be quite different things.

    Heh just noticed 3 people making 3 separate launcher recommendations in a row.. take your pick!

    It's probably the same one. Updated yesterday to 3.8.1.36480. It's getting a few (re?) reviews at the moment

    Is there any way to sync iTunes podcasts to an Android app, and keep it updated? Looking for a way to update the podcasts on the android headunit in the car, but without having to repopulate a MASSIVE list of podcasts, and then keep it synced up.
