App Trailers Updated: Bugs fixed and how to automate views on iPhone

Alright, so i just updated all my apps on my iPhone and noticed App Trailers was one of the apps that updated. One of the major reasons I have not used App Trailers to it's full potential is because of how buggy it has been. From the looks of it they have fixed the issues!

Now that the app is working as intended, I am going to show you how to automate the app on an iPhone or iPod. Here's the basic guide for using App Trailers.

Now for the fun stuff. I'll start off by explaining the new features in App Trailers. The first interesting is a new ways to redeem/earn points.



It's pretty much a scratch off lottery ticket. You get one free one per day with a 1 in 6 chance to earn 50 points ($0.05 USD)

Or you can spend 10 points for the chance to earn 50 points.

Or spend 100 points for the chance to win 500 points.

Don't use this option except for your free daily play. The odds make it so you will lose more than you win in the long run, just like with any scratch off ticket you get from the gas station.

Kind of a cool add on for them to throw in there though.



The mildly aggravating part is that sometimes the videos will only be worth 2 points instead of 5, but most of the time it seems to stick with the 5 points.

Anyways here's the part that will actually help you earn some money. With a Jailbroken iPhone or iPod (sorry about the ad, article about how to jailbreak iDevices comes after when you skip it. I'm exploring monetizing links at the moment)  you can set up your computer with an Auto Mouse Clicker to watch videos back to back to back without actually being there.

Personally I use my iPod for this (with an alternate PayPal account which I then send the funds to my real PayPal and then to my bank account) so that I don't have to worry about my phone being tied up while the program is running.



So, once your iPod/iPhone is jailbroken the first thing you will want to do is go to the new Cydia app store and search for a package called Veency.

That little box that says modify for me will say "install" or something to that effect. Just tap that, you'll see some scripts running, then it will ask you to "Restart Springboard". Just tap the button where it says that and it will be up and running.

Essentially what this does is allow you to access your iPhone/iPod from your computer.




Next you will need to install a VNC program on your computer (will allow your computer to access your iPod/iPhone through your wireless network). Personally I use TightVNC. Once you install TightVNC you will want to run the "TightVNC Viewer"

Type in your iPod's IP address in the blacked out portion


Your iPod's IP address can be found in the WiFi portion of the settings, just tap the blue arrow next to the name of the wireless network you are connected to to see it.






Once all that is taken care of just hit "connect" on TightVNC and it will bring up this screen on your iPod.

Once you tap Accept a screen will pop up on your computer that shows exactly what's on your iPod screen, and it will add a cursor to your iPod.

Next thing is to get the Auto Mouse Clicker set up.






This is how I've currently got my laptop setup running everything. The VNC viewer goes black during the ads
for whatever reason

1) The yellow box is roughly where the "Watch Video" and "OK" buttons on the App Trailers App pops up. We'll be setting up the mouse clicker to click there twice.

2) The green box shows how to use the auto mouse clicker to locate the spot on your screen (using pixels as coordinates) you want to be clicking on. Hit the locate button then click on your screen where you want it to be, and the x and y values will change to that location on the screen.

3) To open up the window with the red and blue boxes go to "Options" then "Configure Mouse Events". Click "Add Event" once to get the second row of boxes to show up. You'll want to enter the x and y values from step 2 in the boxes on the left hand side (same values for both rows), and then enter 15000 and 3000 in the boxes where I have (this sets one click to happen every 15 seconds and the next to happen 3 seconds after)

4) Now look down at the blue box, make sure you have "Loop Events" checked and the values for time set to 0. This sets it on an infinite loop.

Last, just hit start events in the configure menu, and watch it go! I've made about $0.30 while typing this up. And hypothetically you can earn between $0.002 to $0.005 for each video, or $0.004 to $0.01 per minute. That's between $5.76 and $14.40 per day for DOING NOTHING.

However, I have heard of people getting their accounts banned, so I wouldn't let this run for more than a few hours at a time just to be safe.

Anyways, Happy earnings!
