These money-making apps that we’ve come across will not make you the next Bill Gates, but free money is always a welcome, right?

DietBet – Weight Loss Games

You can find apps to help you lose weight for dime a dozen on the Play Store, but how many of that help you earn cash while doing it? Essentially how the app works is that you pool in money with a bunch of other players and bet on yourself to lose either 4% of your weight on the Kickstarter program, or go for the Transformer program to lose 10% of your body weight in 6 months. All of this is backed by photo verification, algorithmic auditing and referees to monitor your weight loss, and you win your share if you meet your weight loss goal.

Money App – Cash for Free Apps

The money app offers you cash for watching videos, playing free games, answering surveys, giving opinions, performing free trials or simply answering surveys. Simply perform new tasks and earn rewards for the same.

One can try it to earn some extra money but that means you have to spend a lot of time watching videos and perform various tasks for the same. Definitely try it if you have some spare time to kill and get some reward points in return. However, the only way to cash out is PayPal that may come out as inconvenient for some users.

Make Money – Free Cash App

The make money app gives you to earn some extra money by completing certain tasks given in the app. Though this app has a decent rating but that’s partially due to the developer’s trick of asking users to review the app with a five-star rating, which is clearly stated by users.

  App asks to rate 5 stars in exchange for credits. I just didn’t want to sugarcoat or lie about the rating. Points/credits/coins is life when you’re using money making apps. There, i know you get the idea.

So its certainly better to try the app on your own but yes the rewards you get for completing the tasks is definitely not feasible for the time you need to invest in earing it.
