Do you know that you can earn real cash and rewards from using certain Android apps? Yes, you could earn cash or rewards by using certain Android apps.
Today we’re going to talk about android apps that will actually pay you for using them regularly, doing things you already do – shopping, playing games, watching movie trailers, videos, etc.
When you look at your phone, you probably think about spending money rather than making it. Thankfully there are plenty of apps to be found in the Google Play Store which can help you recoup some of the costs. Earn money apps are now more popular than get paid to sites as you can earn money while on the go.
This is how you earn real money from using apps(In this Part-I I have included only Android apps. In Part-II I will include only IOS apps). I’ve avoided ones that seem to be attracting a lot of problems and shield away from apps that require you to endlessly watch video ads or fill out long surveys to earn cash. Check out our list of #8 best ways to make money with an android phone that you didn’t know. Try out the apps you feel will be suitable for you and start earning.
#1 Google Opinion Rewards
From the company which owns the Android operating system, comes an amazing app called Google Opinion Rewards available only for Android.
The app gives you Google Play reward points but no cash, which you can redeem only on Google services like downloading Android Apps, Music, Movies, Books, etc. from the Play Store.
Once you install and sign up, Google gives you few 20-30 surveys every week to complete. You need to give your opinions and reviews about the products, which in turn will be given to the companies for insights. Credits vary from few 0.1 cents to 2 dollars. But the main point to note is this service is from Google whom you can trust and try with your eyes closed.

#3 CashPirate – Make & Earn Money
CashPirate is one of my favorite apps. It has been consistently in the top 5 with a 4.5-star rating in past years. However, the app and its payouts remain reliable. At the start of 2016 Users were earning $15-50 per month and this still remains the case.
With this app, you can earn PayPal cash, Bitcoins and Amazon vouchers. The minimum payout is $2.50 PayPal cash.
Points are earned in this app by downloading new apps and completing offers. You earn by watching videos but the number of videos available for you to watch is now limited. The referral program is probably the best of all apps as you get 10% of your referrals earnings and 5% of the referrals’ referrals earnings.
The reason it remains on our list is the fact that CashPirate does pay on time when you request. We have never had any bother regarding payments from CashPirate.

#4 MintCoins – Earn Money
MintCoins is consistently considered by us as a good reliable app. Rather than store credit, MintCoins gives you the opportunity to earn cold, hard cash. You can gain virtual coins by downloading free apps, watching videos, registering with websites, completing surveys and referring friends to do the same.
As soon as your balance hits $1, you’re free to withdraw your earnings to a PayPal account, or you can wait and let it build up for longer if you like.
MintCoins is well worth a try if you are looking to make money and pass the time.
#5 Pact – Earn Cash for Exercising
Pact is one of the more unusual money-making apps in the list in that it focuses on getting you to stick to your exercise regime. You sign up to the commitment you’re comfortable with (based on food intake, how often you plan to work out, etc.) You get rewards for sticking to your new regime – somewhere in the region of 2$ per goal – which comes from other users who have failed.This is all tied together in a swish app that links with your fitness tracker for accurate results and authentication.
Pact’s proven incentives have helped its members hit over 95% of their goals, resulting in over 20 million healthy activities.
The only downside is it could end up costing you your earned whole heap of money if you don’t stick to your goals.
