Cricky, once you get started searching for work the emails come flooding in. I have just received one this morning that raises my suspicions. It has come from applause.com inviting me to apply for a project. However, I haven't registered with applause only with UTest. The issue I have is that to apply they have sent me a link to click on. Being a naturally suspicious person I am loathed to do this. So my questions are:
1) Has anybody else registered and worked with applause?
2) Does it look familiar to people getting an invitation to applause through UTest?

Applause.com and uTest are the same. I think uTest is an offshoot of Applause. If you look at both sites, and scroll down to the very bottom, it's both the same address.

Yeah I didn't realise its from UTest, and thought it was spam in my emails. I got a test invite to do with my gov.uk account, which sounds really fishy

I saw this project on the board on utest. You shouldn’t worry too much with utest, as they works with all the big companies. Sometime even ask to transfer money or make a payment. But it is absolutely real, and you will get the money back as they promised. And it will let you know what to do. You don’t have to do if you don’t feel comfortable. But mostly this kind of project pays very well for very little amount of work. As far as my experience, utest works with a lot of big name companies.

yeah i second that. got that invite as well about the gov.uk account thing. even though it seems like an easy job i don`t really wanna link any gov stuff to my online work for now. but otherwise utest and applause are the same thing and it looks like quite a trustworthy site to me, lots of cycles and projects everywhere in the world.
