ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- There's a new app that will earn us gift cards and coupons to local stores and restaurants while reading the Rock River Times.

The app is called AdsOrTails. All you have to do is log on through the app or the website, look at a couple of ads that were in the Rock River Times, give a response about what you read, then play a game. If you win you get either a $15 gift card or a coupon.

The games creator says it's a good way to give advertisers feedback about who's really paying attention.

"We're trying to make ads not a nuisance, but fun. Give people an incentive to stop, give them a look and win a reward that might allow them to go into a place that they wouldn't otherwise," App Creator Paul Fowler, said.

The AdsOrTails app is free. You can find it in the Apple App Store or on Google Play. For those without smartphones, you can visit the website at
