How would you like to get paid to use your phone? A new mobile application, Locket, says it does just that. Locket takes advantage of your phones lock screen.

They ask you to allow them to place ads, targeted to you, on this unused real estate in exchange for a penny per swipe. Swipe one way to view the ad in more detail or the other way to go directly to your phone. Either way you get paid.

In other words, Locket will give you a penny every time you swipe your screen to unlock. The pay out is limited to 3 cents per hour for now.

We are bombarded with ads everyday from every direction. Would you be willing to get paid to see them?
