With the recent trend of tree-based money-making games, I thought it would be fitting to do a Shake Tree App review.
It is a game that goes by the advert can you make you $50 every time you tap on a virtual tree.
That certainly sounds lucrative however, how true is it, and can users really make a fortune from playing this game.
I have had the game for a week now and will now be filling you in on all you need to know about them.
Along with that, I will also try to answer any questions you may have too.

What Is Shake Shake Tree?
Shake Shake Tree is an early access game on the store that is saying you can make up to $500 in one sitting by tapping on trees.
Along with this in the app, you can also redeem iPhones, Airpods, and Watches. That is what it looks like at first glance anyway.
It does seem like the owners have taken inspiration from another very similar game, called Tree For Money, which went viral.
That game went from 10k installs to 1 million in a short space of time, and as a result, there are developers now trying to replicate its success.
What many of these tree games have in common is that none of them are showing signs of paying out.
For the Tree For Money post, I made I had so many people saying that the company was not sending payments out. Some users had waited months and still got nothing.
You can only hope that with Shake Shake Tree, it is different, but when the developers are copying the concept, then it’s hard to have confidence in them paying out as well.
How Does It Work?
To start with, when you open up the game, you are shown a small tree. When you tap on it, you will get $1.
This isn’t withdrawable money but a separate currency to the one they claim to payout via.
So as you continue to tap, you will get $1 for every click.
This money can be used to upgrade your buildings and grow your tree.
This, in turn, will give you more money per click and make it easier to do further upgrades.
The concept is basically like an idle game, where the goal is to earn as much of the virtual currency as possible.
With that said, I suspect you want to learn more about making money with Shake Shake Tree.
I will cover this in the next few sections.
Is The Advert Misleading?
Thanks to the advert, it looks like you get money each time you tap on the tree.
The example in this ad, which is, of course, not an actual presentation of the game, showed someone getting $100’s of dollars for just a handful of taps.
Here is an image of it:
It just gives people the impression that whenever you are short of money, you can open the app, play it for a few minutes, and just like that, you have some more money.
But I have been able to play it recently to test it out, and I can tell you this is not the case.
How To Make Money With Shake Shake Tree?
The money you ‘earn’ is separate from what you get through tapping on the tree.
To distinguish the two, you have dollar notes shown at the top and on the right a PayPal balance.
Those dollar notes have no value what so ever apart from helping you play the game, as, without the earning aspect, this would be the aim of the game to collect them.
So how you get this PayPal money is through making upgrades and building the tree, as, at random points, you will be given bonuses.
Here is an example of a pop up you can expect to see:
I received it after tapping the tree around 10 times. I then got that amount doubled when I made my first upgrade.
You can expect the same pattern from playing it yourself.
How Do They Pay?
To redeem the amounts you have collected, just like the other tree games, you need to reach a threshold.
This threshold is $300 and is the minimum amount you need to reach to request one.
In the first few minutes of playing Shake Shake Tree, you can get over $100 without breaking a sweat.
But it does become increasingly harder to get paid as the bonuses they give you will lessen.
Some people do reach the required amount; however, the likelihood of getting anything is really low.
You probably think if people aren’t likely to get paid, why do they continue?
The reason is people feel like they are earning and hence continue with it.
They believe these unknown people will pay them money that they think is theirs.
When in reality, the money isn’t owed to them whatsoever, it’s just a number within a game.
What You Need To Know About Shake Shake Tree
1. Time Will Be Waisted
I can ensure that any minute you put into playing Shake Shake Tree, you won’t get back.
The reason people play this game is only for the money and not for fun.
The game itself is quite dull and has no real objective to it.
So people will play for hours on end, hoping that the efforts will be rewarded in the end.
However, after all that playing time, they request the reward (only if they are lucky to reach it) and get nothing back.
No response from the owners or their support team, which is likely non-existent.
2. Too Early?
The game is in early access, which means that people are unable to leave any reviews.
Tree For Money was the same, and despite that game being out for a few months out, it is still in early access.
Reviews are important because they can be enough to tell someone whether they should or shouldn’t do anything.
These companies remove this feature by putting their games in early access to stop people from warning others.
The Shake Shake Tree is essentially a clone of other tree money-making games.
However, it is not a good thing; none of those games have been proven to payout.
With Shake Shake Tree, they claim that you can make effortless money.
However, there is enough to say that no one will be getting any of that money.
While the cliche says money doesn’t grow on trees, it certainly will feel like that for the owners.
I hope you got all the answers you were looking for from my Shake Shake Tree app review.
As you can see, I don’t recommend them; however, I would like to hear your thoughts.
