If you’d love a few extra dollars in your pocket but you’re sick of babysitting your neighbor’s young hellions, the solution may already be resting in your pocket. The next time you have a spare moment, there are several mobile applications that can help you pad your wallet by performing simple tasks that range from doing odd jobs at local businesses to scanning items at the grocery store. You may even be able to make some money by keeping up with healthy habits. Here are the best apps to help you earn a few extra bucks.
GymPact will help keep you in shape while also putting a few extra dollars in your pocket. Every week users set a workout schedule for the next seven days and make a pledge of between $5 to $50 per missed workout. At the end of the week, everyone who skips workouts has to pay, and this money is split between the users who kept their pact to hit the gym. GymPact verifies workouts using check-ins and geolocation and it can also connect to the popular RunKeeper app.
