Did you know that you could actually make money by simply using your smartphone?
There are more and more apps that allow you to make extra cash. Sure, you probably won’t become rich but you certainly can make a few spare dollars, with little effort. I will suggest a few apps, for both iOS and Android. However, you should remember that there are many other apps that offer some kind of payout or rewards.
1. Surveys On The Go
Surveys on the Go is exactly what you expect it to be. It’s a survey app. User (you) can answer surveys with rewards from $0.25 to $5 per survey. However most surveys will pay about a dollar. This app is great for the times when you are bored; waiting room, bus ride, etc.
Surveys On The Go is available for iPhone and Android.
GigWalk attracts a lot of users because the payout vary from $6 to $200+. The “tasks” to complete are more complicated and serious than filling out surveys. This app acts as a middle man between a business and You. Businesses need small jobs done for them – and you will be the one doing these jobs. You might be required to go to a shop to take pictures, become a mystery shopper or do some other work. The jobs are available in USA and some parts of Canada. If you have a lot of free time you can make good money with this application.
GigWalk is available for iPhone and Android.
CheckPoints doesn’t give you cash but allows you to earn gift cards for Amazon, Target, Walmart and many others. You will have to complete simple tasks as watching videos, responding to quizzes, searching for things online, etc.
CheckPoints is available for iPhone and Android.
4. Gym Pact
Gym Pact (or simply Pact) is a very interesting and useful app for those who go to gym or want to go to the gym. When you get the app you make a pact. Example of a pact: I will go to the gym 4 times this week. If you respect your promise, you will get paid $0.50-$0.75 every time you go to the gym. If you do NOT go to the gym, you will have to pay that amount. So who pays you? People that don’t respect their pact. Get healthy and get paid for doing it.
Pact is available for iPhone and Android.
tTap is the app for the lazy. This Android app acts as a screen lock for your phone. Whenever you are about to unlock your phone you will see an ad on your screen. You can swipe up to unlock the phone to swipe left to “click on the ad”. You will get paid regardless if you click on the ad or simply unlock the phone. No work required since you unlock your phone anyways whenever you need to use it. The payout is also very small. Many claim to be making less than $10 per month.
tTap is only available for Android and may not be available in your region.
As I mentioned earlier there are many other similar apps available for android and iPhone. Unfortunately these apps often change their rules, availability and payouts so you need to stay updated.
