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.

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.

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.

It's easy and in your free time you have to play games for a minutes and you will get the reward to play a game for a minute.

  • I've been using Qriket, it was recommended to me by a friend. She says she makes about $25 a week, I haven't made that much yet but I've made almost $10. All you do is spin the little spinner. That's it! To get free spins, you have to watch videos, etc., but if the video isn't available, they still credit you the spin. Not every spin is a winner, but it builds up fast. This is probably the easiest app I've seen for making money on your Android phone. Use the promo code 957F98 and you will get 25 free spins!
