Start Making Money for Free Today!

It cannot be denied that smartphones have changed the way we live today. We can easily create travel and budget plans, locate the nearest gas station with the cheapest prices, learn new healthy recipes, come up with new workout routines, and so much more with the help of smartphone applications. And to make things more interesting, it is now possible for you to make money with apps anywhere and anytime you want to.

Here are some money making apps you should definitely try.

1. Gigwalk

Gigwalk is one of the easiest apps to make money with today. It is a crowdsourcing platform where you can find various work assignments or “gigs”. There are different tasks to choose from at Gigwalk such as taking pictures, checking prices, testing new apps, verifying data, and so much more. In order for you to be able to work on these gigs, you’ll need to apply for them. If the client chooses you, then you’ll be given a certain time limit in which you need to complete and submit the work. If the client likes the outcome, he may give you a positive feedback. Positive feedback from satisfied customers will make you qualify for high-paying gigs. Gigs usually pay around $2-$5. However, some tasks pay as high as $100. Payments are made through Paypal.

2. Mylikes

In order for you to make money with this app, you’ll need to have your own accounts on various social media sites such as Youtube, Twitter, and Tumblr. To start, you need to setup an account with mylikes and then connect it with your accounts on the mentioned social media platforms. Afterwards, you need to choose from the different campaigns available on the mylikes page. Make sure that the campaigns you will choose suit your social media profiles.

Once you’ve chosen the relevant campaigns, it’s time for you to share the video or text links provided. Your income depends on the number of clicks or views that your links receive during the duration of the campaigns. When it comes to payment, you have two options. Either you can choose to receive money through PayPal, or you can opt for gift cards from Amazon.


3. iPinion

If you’re fond of taking online surveys, then this money making app is perfect for you. iPinion is free for download and is very easy to use. For you to make money with this app, you’ll need to complete your profile first, entering some basic personal information such as your address, employment status, birthday, gender, etc. If there are surveys that match your profile, you’ll be notified. Once you complete a certain survey, you’ll be awarded with reward points. These reward points are convertible to cash and can be claimed through a Paypal account. 100 reward points is equivalent to 1 dollar. You’ll need to reach 500 reward points or $5 before you can request for a payout.

4. EasyShift

This smartphone app, like Gigwalk, is a crowdsourcing platform. It requires its users to complete certain “shifts” or tasks before payments can be made. Just like Gigwalk, there are various types of microjobs to choose from at EasyShift. However, the assignments that are high paying typically require you to go to a certain location to carry out the tasks requested. Payments can be as low as $2 and can be as high as $20. Payments are made through Paypal.

5. Gympact

If you want to make some cash while keeping yourself physically fit, then this app is perfect for you. Gympact is a mobile platform that allows its users to come up with a workout schedule for a given week and to create a pledge in which they are required to pay as low as $5 to as high as $50 if they missed a workout. At the end of the week, those users who missed a workout are required to pay their pledges. The total sum is then divided to those who faithfully followed their workout routines. Gympact verifies the data gathered from its users by using geolocation as well as check-ins.

So what are you waiting for? Start making money for free today by downloading some of the smartphone applications listed above. They may not make you instantly rich, but they sure are a great way for you to earn extra cash on your free time.
