LYKA is a free app that lets you share your joyful moments with family and friends. Sounds familiar? Yet, it isn't your typical social media application like Facebook or Instagram, where you only spend time. LYKA has an unusual feature: a reward system for interactions with content.
How to download LYKA Android?
LYKA app is available free for immediate download and installation from several locations. The software has more than 28,000 reviews, the overwhelming majority of which praise the app for its fresh concept. All you have to do is download the file to your Android device, save the permissions and install it when the file is ready.
What features does LYKA have?
Every interaction in the app brings you rewards called Gems (Gift card in Electronic Mode). You can spend the collected points in the following ways:
- Exchange the Gems with friends via the QR code and the new pin system
- Send Gems as gifts
- Use up the Gems in LYKA Mall for goods and services
If you like eating fancy, shopping, and travelling, the Gems earned will cover your escapades. The Mall has partner companies to redeem the in-app currency. You can buy clothes, gadgets, toys, book hotels, and purchase aeroplane tickets.
How much can you earn?
While the company has its headquarters in Hong Kong, it's popular in the Philippines, so 1 Gem = 1 PHP. You can earn 0.05 Gems off a single posted photo. Each maximum rating on a post grants you 0.05 Gems, too. There are two circumstances when you receive a larger reward:
- Collect 5 Gems upon signing in
- Get 15,000 Gems once your account gets verified
The great thing about LYKA is that anybody can verify their profile these days, so your chances of earning 15,000 aren't too dim.
A fresh and fun approach to social media
It might seem like LYKA is late to the social media game. However, a niche audience exists that enjoys this app's novel ideas of exchanging engagement metrics for goods and services. While social apps are in relative decline, LYKA (the Android app in particular) shows promise compared to other shorter-lived entertainment platforms.
