the apps have been running decent for me, i use teamviewer to remote in and play the next app when it's done. 60sb/day easy. on the desktop i play the watch video playlists (30-40sb/day) and the engagme videos (~15-20sb/day). I've easily hit 100-150sb/day spending max 10-15min accumulative time, mostly in my spare time.

I'm still using them.

Anyone having problems with the apps should try updating them. I've had "invalid link", etc, issues with sbtv, movieclips and entertainnow for a while. Decided to try updating on my tablet/phone this morning, and....wow, huge difference! Back to steady advancing of the clips and, so far, no 45 second breaks in between. Usually, I avoid updating as long as possible with sb because I've found it's caused more problems than good...this time, so far so good. Only thing is, if you get "bonus rounds", it's "Watch 26 more vids blah, blah, blah" for sb...which is twice the normal viewing! Meh.

the only issue I am having is with Entertainnow - there's a Nestea ad that keeps getting stuck

Did a search this morning and was surprised to get 100 SB. I didn't think there was one. The most I've ever got for a search was 50SB.

Congratulate me I just got 4...which I find to be the norm more or less.

Keep getting this...."Oops. Looks like that one got away The playlist you are looking for is no longer available" when I go to Watch videos now.
We're all bozos on the bus until we find a way to express ourselves...

Failure is always an option...just not the preferred one!

Watch isn't working for me either right now.

I got a 100 sb search win just over a week ago. I think that was the first time I ever got one.

Is there some written or unwritten rule that prevents the sharing of what was searched in order to get the 100 SBs?

I think it is all random...hmmm just happens that the word I typed in to search that won 100 SB's was "randomizer".

I honestly don't remember what I was searching for to get the 100, or I'd post it,

it doesn't matter what you search for. how it works is their system generates a number of how many searches need to be completed before you get the search win.

example, first search win of the day might be 12 searches. so you search for the 12 things, doesn't matter what, and then you win. you will find that if you have another account, that other account will win on exactly 12 searches as well. the number changes daily though, but usually hovers between 8-15 searches. then once you win, you wont win anything until the next search time period starts. then same thing, but it could be 11 searches before you win. etc...

i'll try and find the times for the max 4 search wins per day.

Yes, here is the list I have about times...

3AM ET-10 AM ET: You'll earn up to 1 total no matter how much you search
10 AM ET - 4PM ET: You'll earn up to 2 total no matter how much you search
4PM ET - 10 PM ET: You'll earn up to 3 total no matter how much you search.
10 PM ET - 3AM ET: You'll earn up to 4 total no matter how much you search.
