    Im afraid I'm having bad experiences with Roamler too. It was fine when I was only doing tasks to get experience, but I tried to accept my first paid job (ice-cream task) and there is no facility in the app to read the barcode which they require! I then try a few weeks later for another (banana task) and they rejected it. I have no idea why, as I followed the brief to the letter and the photo was clear. I tried again to do it today and the app failed to send due to poor mobile phone signal. I assumed I would just be able to send the info when I got home. But I have found that the app has lost all my data and they say you can only complete in the location because they need to verify your location. I said this is fine if you live in a city, but I live in a very rural area and even in my local town where I was trying to complete the job, signal is dodgy. So they ask if I have 4G- like heck, 4G isn't coming here for months and I doubt it will make any difference! So I think I'm done with Roamler- all in all a complete and utter waste of time!

    I've done the banana task and too was feeling awkward about taking the picture, I phoned my sister and started speaking to her while doing it and we came to a conclusion that why should we be embarrassed, I mean why is it a problem if you wanna take a picture of bananas :P my task got accepted and I have been paid for it, so far I haven't had any problems with ROAMLER and I will keep using it

    Another one who might give up on roamler.... Sent the task from the car park of the location. Literally five metres from the door and they have rejected it as couldn't verify location!

    Did a quiz and failed that too basically said that because I hadn't cheated and looked at the answers on Facebook I could not have the points!

    Third time lucky I got them to accept a banana task! Also did a World Cup one the other day which paid immediately. Have been doing a number of tasks just to gain experience points, but finding that more often than not they are rejected for seemingly VERY pernickety reasons!!! You have to read their briefs extremely carefully and sometimes take them VERY VERY literally. I will keep on trying with them, but they are never going to be a good earner, as none of their jobs are usually in my region because I don't live near an Aldi. Hoping this may change as I go up the levels.

    I've started using this over the past few days. Some of the unpaid tasks are a bit odd, but are needed to build up points in order to get paid jobs. I'm going to stick with it for now though - the banana task was easy to do and an easy 2. Shame that they charge an admin fee for getting fees when there's under 20 to be paid.

    Yeah, but it's pence! I cashed out 4 and lost 4p- that doesn't particularly worry me. I just wish they had more tasks so I could earn 20 in one hit!

    I did one of the takeaway menu ones the other day and got accepted without any problems - there were enough level 1 ones that I got away not having to do the banana one to level up

    There's two 10 ones sitting in my app but kind of in the middle of nowhere :-\

    I've recently started this too. I found the banana task ok, if felt odd taking a photo of bananas but I passed first time!

    I've been doing all the free tasks too to go up through the levels (I'm only level 2 at the moment but not been doing it long) If I find I can't follow the rules perfectly or if the photo isn't quite right I make some notes in the comments bit at the end. I've only failed 2 tasks so far.

  • JennaAnn
    I've just moved up a level so I have a spare invite.

    If anyone would like a referral for this app, please PM me. Only if your serious about using it though please. My last referral hasn't completed one task

    It's fun, creative and something a bit different from sitting in front of the computer screen trying to make some cash

    Logged onto MSE just to let others know that Roamler is a waste of time

    I dont think it's a UK based company, as correspondence seems a bit...I dont know, It just doesnt sound like 'natural' english if you get what I mean, like someone has just copied and pasted what they wanted to say into babelfish!

    Anyway, that would be fine but problems arise as a LOT of the time the locations are completely wrong. If you try to inform them about it they say thank you but dont actually change anything.

    Got to verify what everyone else has said on here, tasks are VERY pernickety! (Love that word) Just had a task rejected and i'm done with it. The task asks you to take a picture of lillies in tesco, but there arent any. I ask the manager and he says they havent stocked them for months, but there is no way to escape the window that says 'TAKE A PICTURE OF LILLIES' so...you're doomed to fail if there are none!

    I tried to argue when it was rejected, that they had all the information they needed - They wanted to know if that tescos stocked lillies, it didnt. I took a picture of the flower area as proof and spoke to the manager specifically to ask. That wasnt good enough for them as they wanted a 'picture of your favourite pot plant' if there were no lillies ... :I

    I tried to argue that to take a picture of my favourite pot plant (with no means to capture one online, it had to be a TAKEN photograph) I was already running out of time, and had no way to take a picture of a silly pot plant, so asked for some paper and a pen at Tescos and took a picture of a note that said 'No Calla Lillies available. I enquired. No means to take a picture of a pot plant'

    ...and it still got rejected.

    Field agent and clic & walk are much better. Roamler is a huuuuuge waste of time!

    There were no calla pot plants in our store as well.

    It had said if there were no calla plants there to take one of another potted plant that I liked , so as there were no other potted plants I took a photo of the whole flower stand and then a photograph of my favourite bunch of flowers.
    I explained in the comment section there were no calla plants or any other pot plants there and why I took the photograph of the selection of flowers that they actually had there.

    I passed the task and have been credited

    I passed the lilies task too with an absence of calla lilies.

    I have to say that I like Roamler. I know I’m not going to earn much from it as there are not many tasks around this area, but I enjoy the creative side of it and I like the challenge of doing the non-paying tasks to aim to move up through the levels. I treat it as more of a social media because I like to see what photos others have come up with for their tasks. It’s not a ‘huge waste of time’ for me because I’m not spending much time on it at all. Today, Roamler told me I was passing a supermarket with the calla lily task and it was the easiest 2.50 I’ve ever made!

    The fact that the moderators are not native English speakers doesn’t bother me at all and why should it? I’ve always found them to be charming and polite.

    Roamler is fun if you are out and about. I think someone in my area must be on a very high level or there must be about 5 Roamlers in my immediate area. All the flower visits get snapped up in no time.

    The cucumber one is top notch, but I would stay well away from the mushroom and grape ones. I've had a few funny looks doing that one as you end up taking a lot of photos.

    With the lillies and such like, if you can't find the said item, just take a photo of something else in the area. I always put in an explanation and all mine have passed.

    Good luck all.

    I have recently started doing Roamler tasks. Some of them are fun !
    Did banana task which was accepted (well first time it was rejected, so i re-did and submit). Today did a mushroom task.
    Other unpaid tasks are fun at times too!
