What is the revenue recognition principle?

As part of my business series on the blog, here is an info-graphic covering revenue recognition. As some of you know, revenue recognition has a special place in my heart as I audited revenue for a software company in the bay area.  I had to know these principles like that back of my hand.

Earning via Cash Alarm

A user on Reddit wanted some more information on my earnings on an app called Cash Alarm, so I have created this post as I can’t post screenshots on Reddit. How viable is this as a source of passive income? Lets look at the numbers. Here is my total hours on the app:

Or in a table:

Hours "played"
Game 1
Game 2
Game 3

And here is my total earnings on the app:

I have had one pay out of $2.5 and 20,484 coins, which is equal to about $2.11. With some quick math, that means I have made about $.15 a hour from using app flame. Time to earn on a given game increases exponentially. As you can see in the first screen shot, I have to play 26104 seconds to earn just 124 coins. In my other two games only a faction of that (1,000 or 3,000 seconds) is needed. With that in mind, I probably will uninstall the app after I can cash out. The first $2.5 was quite easy to earn. If you are probably going to game on you mobile device anyways, I would recommend trying it out and getting that easy $2.5.

If you are interested in trying the app, here is my referral Link you will get 4444 coins as a start-up bonus.
