Did you know that you can download some apps to your phone that will let you earn substantial extra money just by doing little odd jobs and answering surveys, etc.? I have reviewed one of these on this blog — Field Agent. But lucky for you there are a few other apps like Field Agent you can check out.
It stands to reason that if you download and use all these apps regularly, you could make more than just a little chump change each month! I have heard of some people making a couple hundred extra dollars per month thanks to task-based apps.
Here are four task-based apps you can try:
Task-Based Apps That Earn You Money
#1 – Mobee
This app is for iPhone and Android users. Find “missions” near you to complete. Usually these are restaurant and shopping missions. If you complete the missions successfully and answer the follow-up questions, you'll get points from Mobee that you can then redeem for gift cards and various prizes.
#2 – Gigwalk
This app is for iPhone and Android devices. Basically this is one of the most popular apps like Field Agent. You may be using your smartphone for audits, photography, or other things depending on the needs of Gigwalk's clients.
You must have Paypal to get paid. Tasks range from $3 to as much as $90 dollar, although I'm sure that $3 is closer to the norm.
Go here to sign up for Gigwalk, or read our Gigwalk review first.
#3 – Easy Shift
Earn money with your smartphone by eating, shopping, and exploring your city. Again, very similar to the two listed above. You do little odd jobs in stores and around your town and get paid.
You need Paypal to get your money, and it can take about 48 hours before your payment will process. Easy Shift appears to be available for both Android and iPhone users.
Go here to sign up for Easy Shift.
#4 – Swagbucks App
Unless you've been living under a rock, you've probably heard of Swagbucks. They have a website and a mobile app that allow you to earn money many different ways, including playing games, watching videos, listening to music, answering surveys, and more.
You can cash out with just 500 SB (Swagbucks) and request your earnings via Amazon or Paypal. They are a legit site and have paid me many times.
Of the apps listed here, this one is the least like Field Agent. It's more of a rewards app where you don't have to leave your home to earn. With the apps listed below, some of the missions you do will require going somewhere. So if you don't want to leave your house, this one is ideal for you.

So there you have it. If you already own a smartphone, you can download these apps and start taking completing tasks and getting paid!
With the latter three, jobs are on a first-come, first-serve basis, so you'll need to be fast if you see something pop up that you think you could do.
Do you know of any other good money-earning apps? Please share below!
I’ve done some work for Field Agent. I’ve also done some work for Easy Shifts, which I recommend highly. Field Agent is VERY picky–you must EXACTLY follow the directions or else. For example if they say the entire display and your picture leaves out the bottom left, well, you aren’t getting paid. I find this very frustrating to say the least–they seem more intent upon finding small reasons to NOT pay you for your gig rather than paying. I will continue to work for them, but I won’t go out of my way to drive for a gig any more and risk that I won’t get paid for some minor reason.
My husband and I have been doing Field Agent for awhile now and I have only had one job turned down and that was because I didn’t read the directions correctly. They don’t seem to be extra picky, just do the jobs the way they ask and you get paid! We have made a decent amount of money with Field Agent.
My experiences with Field Agent have been very similar to that of Anne. I would advise people to be very careful when working with this company. I agree, they are extra picky, even if you do read the directions and do things supposedly the way that they want. I googled this company and found that there are a lot of complaints similar to this in regards to this company.
What about store owners and employees? I would think they would pick up on this and tell you not to do it.
Do you mean while you’re shopping in a store? I’ve never had anyone say anything. Nowadays so many people have their smartphones out anyway while they are shopping that no one really even notices.

Specifically, each step of your job includes a Request and Instructions. The Request is an outline for that particular step of the job, such as taking a photo of a product. The Instructions field will provide a list of information in regards to the Request. Using the previous display photo as an example, the Instructions field might tell you to go to a department in which you should find the product and the type of display on which it should be present.
