iPhone Apps I use to Make Money

I use tons of apps to make a little extra money, including survey apps, task-based apps and shopping apps. Using a combination of all these apps I’ve managed to earn £100’s this year; either from my sofa or while I’m out and about – thanks to my smartphone!

smartphone apps


BeMyEye is a task-based app that pays you to complete easy audits such as identifying coffee machines, taking pictures of creative sales displays & uploading receipts! I usually earn £4-£8 per task – the tasks take less than 10 minutes. In total I’ve earned over £90 now.


Roamler is another task-based app that pays you to complete easy audits such as checking sales displays of certain products! Earn £4+ per (5min) task!

Field Agent

Field Agent is very much a mystery shopping type app, the tasks you often get from Field Agent are reviewing particular shopping market displays. Earn £4-15 per task and be in with a chance of winning a bigger cash prize (usually £100-£150). I’ve earned over £100 in total now!


AttaPoll is a survey app that pays you to complete easy surveys on your phone. Surveys are fairly regular but remember to check it regularly. You can earn 10p-£2 per survey. Cash out at £5. Additionally earn points for referring friends.


Vypr is a really easy to use opinion app. Vypr is great if you hate long surveys as most Vypr tasks are between 1 to 5 questions.Every 1000 points = £5 straight to your PayPal.


VoxPopMe is a video survey app that pays you to record yourself reviewing a brand/service/ad. You only need to record yourself for a minimum of 15 seconds. You can earn 25p per 15 second recording. Cash out at £10.

One Pulse

One Pulse is very similar to Vypr in that it’s an easy to use opinion app. Again, it’s great if you hate long surveys as most tasks are usually 3 questions. You’ll earn around 35(cent) per (paid survey), cash out at $5/£3.50


Swagbucks is a website/app that pays you to complete easy surveys as well as watch videos and complete offers on your phone (and online). See my Swagbucks blog post for tips on earning more from Swagbucks. I can earn £5 a week from Swagbucks! Make sure to collect your daily bonus to get a big payout at the end of the month. Most surveys pay around 75 Swagbucks (around 50p).


Hold rewards students for not touching their phone. You get 10 points every 20 minutes that you keep off your phone. You can redeem these points for a range of rewards including Costa vouchers, cinema tickets and sweepstake competition entries. 

Curious Cat

Curious Cat is a survey app that pays you to complete (mostly) easy surveys on your phone. Surveys are fairly regular but remember to refresh regularly. You can earn 10p-£3 per survey. Cashout your earnings straight to your PayPal as soon as you earn £1!


People.io is probably my favourite opinion app. They send you around 10 questions per day that you can swipe (left/right) to complete in quick concession. 1 point per swipe, 600 points if you connect your email. 6000(ish) points = £10 gift card (including Starbucks and Amazon).

Job Spotter

Job Spotter is completely different from anything mentioned above. It’s an app that allows people to upload local job vacancies, if you spot a poster advertising for staff, snap a picture of the advert & shop and you’ll get rewarded! You’ll earn 5p-£1 in Amazon vouchers per job advert uploaded.


Sweatcoins adds value to the distance you walk/run outside. The app rewards you points based on how far you walk (outdoors) each day. You’ll earn 1 ‘sweatcoin’ for each 1000 steps you walk/run. There are tons of offers on the app and they usually have a cash option too!


Shoppix is an app that rewards you for uploading receipts. You’re only allowed to upload 1 receipt per store per day but if you remember to do it every time you shop it soon adds up! That’s £5 per 106 receipts. Additionally, you can earn points in prize draws and by completing quick surveys too).

Checkout Smart

Checkout smart is very similar to Shopmium – it gives you cashback on your shopping (including groceries and toiletries). You can bag tons of free and discounted shopping!


Shopmium gives you cashback on your shopping (including groceries and toiletries), there are loads of freebies on there but also money off & buy one get one free offers! Expect lots of free food, drink, and cosmetics. Combine these offers with coupons and you can actually make a profit from buying freebies!

Airtime Rewards

Airtime Rewards is an app that offer you cashback everytime you shop at a selected retailer once you’ve connected your credit card. You can them use this money to pay your next phone bill! It’s a slow earner but definitely one worth having, you’ll also get 50p for every friend you refer! Use code D4E3EPAA for a 50p bonus.

ClickSnap by Quidco

ClickSnap is exactly the same as SmartCheckout, only the credit goes into your Quidco account so you’ll need a Quidco account. You can also get the odd freebie and tons of money off offers from ClickSnap!


I’m sure that everyone’s heard of ebay right? Like, Depop, ebay also has an app where you can easily sell your used items from your phone (or online). Earnings depend how often your listing items for sale and how much money you make from each of them. There are tons of people who work from home by selling items on ebay!


Bulbshare is an online community where you’re asked to get creative and help brands with logo, slogan, and marketing ideas. You’ll need a code when you sign up (I used “Kindness”). On day one of downloading Bulbshare, I manage to earn £5! You get paid £5 (UK) or $7 (US) for every 3 completed tasks.

I’ll keep adding to this list every time I find a new money making app so be sure to check regularly for new money-making opportunities! Have you found a fab app that helps you to make some £££’s? Let us know below!
