Earn Some Extra Money With These 7 Apps ( Yes Really)

There is an app for just about everything these days, and most probably anything you could ever want from your smartphone or tablet you can find with just the simple click of a button. You may see certain apps as painfully addictive and annoyingly time-consuming but what if I told you that you could actually be making money from a selected few?

Gone are the days of having to scrape together the odd bit of change just to make some extra cash, now it can be done with just a few clicks on your smartphone or tablet. Your App Store is full of genuine, innovative and wonderfully brilliant ways of earning a little extra money, all it takes is knowing where to look! Here are 7 of the best apps for making a little extra.

1. Textbroker

Getting paid to write content is most people’s dream job, there is nothing better than being rewarded financially for your talent and Textbroker makes that possible. The site pays authors who produce content for adverts, websites and newsletters. Although you won’t be earning millions you can gain great exposure and experience and be paid whilst doing so, it really is a win-win situation.

2. Task 360

Imagine getting paid to carry out mundane and simple tasks in your spare time. With the help of Task 360 that is now a possibility, you are shown several possible tasks to undergo on a map around your local area and whichever one you choose, provided you carry it out, you will be paid for. The tasks include anything from checking that billboards lights work to seeing if a company is still selling something in their shop.

3. Depop

You’ve heard of Ebay and Etsy but what about Depop? A new and exciting app that allows you to sell an item with just one simple image. You can then share that image on Facebook or Twitter and wait for someone to purchase, it really is as simple as that.

4. Mobee

Every fancied trying your hand at being a mystery shopper? Mobee is an app that will pay you to go undercover and rate your local stores in term of their cleanliness and customer service as well as a few other simple things, its as easy as that and you get paid to do so.

5. Pact

If the thought of getting fit and healthy is not quite enough to make you put down the pizza and hit the gym for a serious workout then perhaps earning some cash could persuade you. Pact is an app that tracks your time in the gym, if you stick to your agreed schedule then are rewarded with up to $5 per week from other users who didn’t succeed.

6. Slicethepie

If you’re an opinionated music obsessive who is just itching to get your opinion out there then Slicethepie could be the perfect money making app for you. It allows you to write reviews on all different genres of music by unsigned artists, the lengthier and more detailed your review the more money you could potentially earn. You have to be willing to put in the time and effort but the more of a reputation you gain the more money you can earn.

7. Gift Hunter Club

The easiest app for earning money, you can earn by watching videos, completing polls and entering competitions, it really is as simple as that. The average amount you could earn each week is around $8, not bad for an easy days work.
