Whether you fancy a quick flutter on the Champions League, getting rid of your unwanted possessions, or earning some extra money shopping, there are loads of mobile apps on the market that you can earn or win money off.

Here’s my run down of seven (7) awesome apps that let you earn money right from your smartphone. Although all these apps are free to download, some require in app purchases to earn or win money. If you are strictly looking for a no risk way to make some extra money however, I’ve covered that too with the likes of Swagbucks, Streetspotr and YOOBIC. 

1) Swagbucks (iPhone and Android) – Swagbucks is free to download, but users have the opportunity to earn points for watching videos, completing surveys and shopping for deals. Users can then convert their points to gift cards from their favorite shops to spend.

2) Ebay (iPhone, iPad and Android) – Free to download, the Ebay mobile app makes it easier for sellers to upload new products and manage their account on the go. The barcode scanner allows items such as books and DVDs to be uploaded almost instantly and if you’re browsing the charity shops or car boot sales looking for Ebay inventory, you can easily search for the item on the app to find out if it’s worth purchasing.


3) Bwin Sports (iPhone, iPad and Android) – The Bwin Sports App is free to download, but users must input their payment details in order to place bets and receive any winnings. In addition to covering more markets than other betting providers, the statistic menu allows users to research odds and keep a tab to monitor favorite teams and competitions.  Please note you must be 18 years or over to participate.

4) Streetspotr (iPhone and Android) – Free to download, this app lets users accept tasks in their area and pays within 30 business days when completed. Typical jobs include buying something in a shop, uploading photos of restaurant menus and checking shop displays.  If you find yourself shopping regularly, this is an easy way to earn money as part of your usual routine.

5) Foxy Bingo (iPhone, iPad and Android) – From the UK’s top online Bingo site, the Foxy Bingo App is free to download and offers a bonus of £60 when you deposit your first £10. Users can play both 90 ball and 75 ball games for cash prizes as well as instant win slot games where prizes include holidays and concert tickets. Users must be 18 years or over.


6) Vegas Paradise Casino (iPhone and Android) – The Vegas Paradise Casino App is free to download, and users can experience all the games in the app’s ‘Free Mode’ without paying a deposit. The ‘Real Mode’ version allows users to play their favorite casino games with real money and is currently offering a 100% bonus up to £200 when users make their first deposit. Popular games include Tomb Raider, Mermaids Millions, Roulette and Blackjack, created by top developers such as Microgaming, Genesis and NextGen.

7) YOOBIC (iPhone and Android) – Free to download, users can get paid for completing simple tasks on their mobile like taking photos of marketing displays in shops and uploading the requested information from the brief. Some users have complained about the lack of tasks available, but when they are available users can typically earn £4-£8 ($6-$12) for a 10 minute task.
