Smartphone Apps That Can Make You Money

Looking to make a few extra dollars? There is an App for that, or actually a few Apps to make a few extra bucks. Companies are paying Smartphone users through Apps by having users complete small tasks in their area. It might be taking a picture of the peanut butter aisle at your local grocery store, or liking a page on Facebook.

7NEWS found a Broomfield mother that has been using an App to make some extra money

"You're on a treasure hunt to go into a store to see if they have a certain item," said Donna Baraga, a Broomfield mother who makes money on the side with her smart phone. "And you get paid for looking."

Basically, the Apps walk you through everything you need to do, you complete the task, maybe snap picture with your Smartphone and once you complete the task, money is transferred to you via PayPal.

Here Are Some Apps That Pay

"Every time your phone goes 'ca-ching,' and you make money, you just look at your husband and smile," said Baraga. "When you get $15 and then $15 and then $15, It all adds up."

Some people are making an extra $125 a week for completing small tasks around town. You won't be able to make a living off these Apps, but it's great for some extra cash or fun money. If you make $600 or more in a year, the companies will send you a 1099 form for tax purposes.
