Hardly anyone can still be surprised by the number of apps available on the App Store. They are created for all needs and purposes that one can imagine. Some make your life easier by providing advice, some make your life more fun with entertainment.
There is, however, a category of apps that can help you make some extra. The methods of how you earn on them vary, but they all surely bring some income. These are the 4 apps that help you make money with your iPhone.
Sweatcoin is a popular app for earning some money by simply taking a walk. If it sounds like a joke, it is not. This app does pay you for the steps you take each day. The idea behind Sweatcoin is to incentivize people to be more active and to promote a healthy lifestyle.
The app uses your phone’s GPS to track your steps and converts the distance you walk or run into Sweatcoins. The number of Sweatcoins you earn per day is limited, so the idea is to encourage users to be consistent in their physical activity rather than trying to earn as many Sweatcoins as possible in a short period of time.
The Sweatcoins you earn can be exchanged for various discounts and other goods provided by different vendors on the Sweatcoin Marketplace. It is available on the app itself, meaning you do not have to go through loops in order to cash out on your activities. Taking just 7000 steps a day could bring many benefits, so why not earn taking them?
Acorns is a personal finance and investment app that aims to make it easy for people to save and invest their money, even if they don’t have a lot to start with.
The app allows you to link your credit or debit card to your Acorns account and then round up your purchases to the nearest dollar. For example, if you buy a coffee for $3.75, Acorns will automatically invest the remaining $0.25 in your investment portfolio. This way, you can save and invest small amounts of money without even thinking about it.
Once you have linked your cards and set up your investment account, Acorns will invest your money in a portfolio of exchange-traded funds (ETFs) based on your risk tolerance and financial goals.
You have a choice of five different portfolios, ranging from conservative to aggressive, and Acorns will automatically rebalance the portfolio to ensure that it remains aligned with your goals.
Honeygain is an app that allows you to share your unused internet bandwidth and get money for it. It is a passive income app, meaning that it minimizes the activities that you have to do in order to earn. In Honeygain’s case, all you have to do is create an account and install the app itself.
The earnings system on Honeygain is rather simple. As the application works in the background and shares your internet traffic, you receive 3 credits for each 10 MB of bandwidth that is shared.
1000 credits are the same as $1, and once you reach $20 worth of credits, you can payout using PayPal or JumpToken. The aforementioned method is a cryptocurrency that was created by JumpTask, a get-paid-to website that partnered up with Honeygain soon after it was launched.
The app is safe to use as it does not collect any personal information, nor does it require any special permissions to run. The bandwidth shared is used for SEO research, price aggregation, ad verification, and similar use cases.
Speaking of get-paid-to (GPT) apps and platforms, InboxDollars is exactly that. On this app, you can earn by completing simple tasks, such as completing surveys and watching videos. The tasks are always simple enough so that anyone can complete them.
The earnings on this app depend on how much time you spend using it. That is, the number of tasks available is always somewhat large, meaning that you can spend as long as you are comfortable with. And with more tasks you complete, the more money will accumulate.
The earnings you get on this app can be exchanged for various gift cards, a rather common occurrence on GPT platforms. You can also receive a PayPal deposit, get a prepaid Visa card, or opt-in for other payout options.
All in all, some apps may require you to do small activities in order to earn, whereas others help you monetize your everyday activities, such as walking. The bottom line is that regardless of which earning type you go for, you will surely earn some extra income. Needless to say, none of these apps will make you a newly-minted millionaire, but they will provide some money for small expenses.
