Welcome to my Pop Star review.
The other day I was looking through the app store and came across a game that claimed to pay you to pop bubbles, this game being Pop Star.
There were a few reasons why this game caught my eye, firstly because it says you can make money playing a mobile game, and secondly, the developers were ones I recognized.
That is because their owners Megan Rene Oliver are responsible for another viral game, which is suspiciously similar.
However, that app turned out to be a scam, and with people owed $100’s of dollars, it doesn’t put you in good faith for this one.
Is Pop Star Magic different from that app, and do they pay out their users, or is it the same again.
Make sure to read till the end to find out what the deal is.

What Is Pop Star Magic?
Pop Star Magic is a game that claims to offer an opportunity to win prizes and free rewards. That’s precisely what they say on the app store.
As I stated above, there owned by Megan Rene Oliver.
They are known for launching other free cash apps.
Including Starry Legend, which I reviewed in the past and Money Dogs.
Both apps had several complaints when it came to people being paid out.
Because of this, I do not recommend them at all as too many users were being ripped off and having their time wasted.
That joins the list of free cash apps that have been a disappointment, including:
Moving back to Pop Star, they release date is currently unknown.
They also have no reviews.
Not only that, but in just under a year, they have managed to achieve over one million installs on the Google Play App store.
It’s not that bad going; however, it’s just a pity that a lot of the reviews aren’t great, which is what you are about to learn.
Pop Star Magic is only available on android; however, whether it is in your region does depend.
Once you have it downloaded, there isn’t any specific set up steps you need to follow.
As once you click on the game, you are launched into the main menu as there is no sign up involved.
Now this is where it gets familiar for me but also confusing at the same time.
The familiar part is that the game is almost identical to Starry Legend.
With the menu being the same, the logo similar apart from the change in words, and the gameplay is exactly the same too.
So at this point, it’s clear to see its just the same game but with different branding.
But what is confusing is there is no cash-out, and there is no button to click on to track how much you can earn.
How Does Pop Star Magic Work?
How the game works is that like Candy Crush, you need to pop matching bubbles that are next to each other.
So for e.g., if there four blue star bubbles in a group, you can pop them, and that will get you coins.
I was initially thinking that by doing this, you will either get some cash reward or at least a payout for completing a level.
However, from going through the first few levels of Pop Star Magic.
There seems to be no sign of any dollars, which seemed apparent in the advert.
All it is, is a fun game where you work through levels trying to get as big a score as you can.
You will get chests along the way that give coins; with these coins, you can use them to buy tools from the shop.
This consists of a hammer, brush, transposition, meteor, and package, which can help you complete levels.
What You Need To Know About Pop Star Magic
1. Same App, Different Name
Essentially it’s another game but just with different branding.
Now I’m not sure whether developers are allowed to do this, but in this instance, I didn’t find an aspect of the game that was changed at all.
From reviewing different games, I notice how some owners abandon certain ones and then make one be a better version.
My guess is because this is the older of the two games that since it didn’t go viral straight away, they thought they would try again with another name.
However, with that said I don’t know the reasons.
I just don’t get why there is essentially the same game on the market.
Doing this Pop Star Magic review, it makes me feel like I’m doing the same review twice in some way.
2. Not Much Point To It
Aside from being a fun game that you can play in your own leisure time, there is nothing else to it.
What was portrayed in the advert is nothing like what you see in the game.
For me, it is okay that there is no way to earn prizes after this is what apps started on the app store.
Just apps you can download and have fun with wherever you are.
However, what isn’t okay is saying you can earn prizes, and then once you have downloaded the app, there is no way to win.
Because at this point, you have given the developers another install, which is helping their statistics rise.
It’s just false advertising.
However, with that said, there are a few people somehow making money, as I will talk about in the next point.
3. Not Paying At $100
This has become a recurrent problem with games such as this one.
You earn the amount or try to obtain the minimum threshold.
However, once you have reached it nine times out of 10, they never payout.
But almost always they don’t, and that is clearly shown in the numerous bad reviews.
You probably think if they don’t payout, then why is the rating so high.
Its something I don’t understand myself.
However this screenshot of three recent reviews next to each other shows you why.
Despite two of those users not getting paid, they still gave 5-star reviews.
This makes for an inaccurate rating, where if you have just come across the app, your more likely to go ahead and download them because you see a good star rating.
But down in the actual reviews lies the truth and is where the secrets of a free cash app like Pop Star Magic show.
Pop Star is a scam, in my opinion, since they are misleading users into thinking that they can make hundreds of dollars.
Instead, the reality is that the opportunities are limited.
And what you actually have is a game that is fun to play but won’t make you any money.
If you haven’t read my review of Starry Legend, I encourage you to check it out, too.
The similarities you will see between the two will make you think that its the same app.
Having reviewed the other app, it does feel exactly the same.
To conclude this Pop Star app review, I would say if you want to get it to have a game to play, I don’t see why not.
The ads are quite repetitive, though, but if you don’t mind and are looking for something like Candy Crush, then this could be worth a try.
However, by no means do I recommend them for making money as you won’t.
It does seem as if some are making cash with the app, albeit on the app, and not being able to cash out then.
You will ultimately have you’re timed killed, so I would opt for sites that do actually payout such as this site I recommend called Swagbucks.
