Calling all smartphone and internet users who download and install mobile apps on your phone and want to make extra money.  There are a few new websites and apps, I found online that are paying people good money for doing very simple tasks in their spare time.  I encourage you to give these apps a try so they can help you make close to $500 or more a month.

Tips When using Apps for Cash 

  • Please be sure to download and use more than one app so that you can elevate your income for the month.
  • Check your apps regularly to ensure they are working properly and to look for new money-making opportunities
  • Try to keep your phone charged and updated so that you wil always be ready to participate.
  • Sometimes companies with apps have a physical website for members to log in and use that have additional money-making tasks.
  • Also note that some people will be offered more tasks and money based on their demographics alone.
