I am about to look at both Leapforce and Appen after updating my CV, does anyone have any advice on which is better? I would say I am fairly proficient with my computer skills, but no coding or programming experience. Would be grateful for any advice guys thanks.

Coding isn't anything to do with it so don't worry about that

Leapforce is more Web Search Evaluator work focused, Appen is more microtasks I would say

What are microtasks as in what types of things would you be requested to do? I get put off them with the fear of lack of knowledge and knowhow

Well Leapforce is just helping a search engine produce better results

Appen tends to me tasks around improving social media experience and helping bloody OK GOOGLE etc

Ah I see, I have joined Leapforce and working my way through the first tasks still but will give Appen a miss unless I can start up an anti social media site and they work with that :D

Can you sign up for both? I thought they were part of the same group? Do you generally get more work with one or the other?

Leapforce has one client as a search engine and Appen has another...

I've applied for both, just waiting for leapforce to finalise everything to start with them. Appen don't have anything available for me at the minute but I did get that recording job from them this morning.

I've just applied to Leapforce. How long does it take for them to confirm if you have been successful at the application stage?

i will have a look at Appen next...

I think it varies. I was responded to within 24hrs but others have had much longer to wait. I think I just got lucky with a quick response but now it's been 2 days after I did the first task and it's still being processed.

It's over 5 years ago now, but it took me several months from applying before I was offered the exam. Looks like I started the application process in mid February and was accepted as an agent on 10th July. I know it can be much quicker as well but that was my experience.

I have applied for both, Leapforce back in April/May time, and even emailed to see if there was a problem with application to no avail, and then Appen last week some time, but not heard anything yet. I'm disappointed because I really would like something semi-regular, and about 20/25 hours a week.

Am I right in thinking that Appen and Leapforce have both now merged? So only Appen is available now.
I applied to Leapforce a few months ago and was accepted but never got any tasks.

I registered with Appen quite some time ago but after no end of problems I gave up hope of working with them. I can only vaguely remember the issues, one being that I wasn't able to log in and was advised that my email was not associated with any accounts. This despite them sending me emails, to that email address, regarding job roles.

I would like to attempt this again and wondered if anyone could advise if I'm best to simply re-register from scratch?
