Best apps for making money on Android

When you look at your phone, you probably think about spending money rather than making it. Your handset almost certainly cost you a pretty penny, whether in up-front cost or on-going monthly payments. Thankfully there are plenty of apps to be found in the Google Play store which can help you recoup some of the costs. This is how to make money with Android apps.

I would like to try playing games with a TV box.

Google Opinion Rewards

It may come as little surprise to learn that Google has an app of its own that you can use to make money. With Google Opinion Rewards you earn Google Play credit by completing surveys. You'll receive a notification whenever a new survey is available, and you just need to spend a few moments answering a series of questions – nothing too taxing.

Once you've completed a survey, you earn Google Play Store credit that you can use to buy apps, music and other things. Many of the surveys have a deadline for completion, so make sure you don’t wait too long to complete them.

Use PiniOn to earn money with photos, opinions about services, brands and products and research. The application offers tasks that are quick and easy to perform. You may have to leave the house, but it does not have to be bad.

You can narrow your tasks to a set address, participate virtually or book missions. The more you participate, the more missions you receive and, therefore, more money can earn. You can request redemption of your money to your bank account or a PayPal account.

Freelancer is not quite an app to make money online in minutes, but to find freelance jobs to earn an extra few dollars.

Employers have projects and freelancers makes proposals on execution time and the value of their services. In the end, the freelancer is hired if their proposals match customer needs.

QuickCash is another of the applications that pays you to test new applications and websites. In the app, 1000 points equals $1. After reaching the value you want, you can transfer the money to a PayPal account.

The minimum to make a transfer is $1. And it's not that hard to get to $1 as points per test of an application range from 23 to 3,000.

Rather than store credit, MintCoins gives you the opportunity to earn cold, hard cash. You can gain virtual coins by downloading free apps, watching videos, registering with websites, completing surveys and referring friends to do the same.

As soon as your balance hits $1, you're free to withdraw your earnings to a PayPal account, or you can wait and let it build up for longer if you like.

If getting paid to test out apps seems like a great way to spend your time, AppCasher will be right up your street. You can earn credit for installing and launching apps, and these credits can then be converted into gift cards that you can use to buy things from Amazon or iTunes. You can opt to have cash transferred to your PayPal account instead.

You can also refer your friends to the app and, providing they use your special code, you'll earn extra credit for each person who signs up.

    And I recommend AppLike apps to android. Several of these types of monetization applications have already tested and this is the best one and you can trust it. In addition, it is the fastest and easiest way to earn. Well, they are paid out!
    This is because through this application we install from Google Play suggested applications or games and use them (also firing them through applike), that is simply enough that the application is fired and every few minutes are added points. The longer the longer. It is best to leave such applications switched on overnight, or even for a whole day. I get this way around $ 1 a day. The fees are already from $ 0.50 (or 4,999 points), including paypal. It is worth to add that we have 4,444 points on the start, so the first deposit can be done after a few minutes.

  • Hi everyone. I have 4 android smartphones and plenty of time in my possession to dedicate on this as I'm now unemployed..and would appreciate your guidance on this : is it possible to use multiple phones with different Gmail accounts/phone numbers, so as to earn a reasonable living? Like 300$ per week for 16 hours a day spent on this? Which are the right applications for that purpose?

  • Hello everyone, I have found a great Android app called Earn!, which will give you sign up bonus of $0.5 and rewards you for doing offers / watching vids. They pay to PayPal and Bitcoin, which is great and minimal payout is $5. Please use my ref link P7ZW4. App here: [bitly] /2lCQwem

    There are several apps that are not mentioned above. One that works and has paid out is Adme. It is for android phone only , as of last check. And all you do is use your phone like normal, when it reaches $10.00 cashout.

    My referral code is 7TVoSBP6Ma. I have a couple others that also pay out.
