How to Make Money on Android Phone

Do you want to figure out how to make money online? But you don’t have the time or the resources to start your own website or online business? All you need to start generating passive income online is your Android phone. Instead of spending an hour on social media every day, use the following apps to start making a couple of bucks instead. Here’s how you can make money on your Android Phone.

Passive Income: How to Make Money on Android Phone

1. appKarma

appKarma Android

It’s quite easy to make money using appKarma. All you have to do is download promoted apps and use them. You don’t need to sign up for services to start making money.

Depending on the complexity and the money the task makes you spend (as low as $0), you’ll earn Karma points. We’ve seen the app offering as low as 14 Karma Points and as high as 750 Karma points. To earn more Karma points, you can watch trailers and play quizzes.

The Karma Points can be used to get Amazon, iTunes, Google Play, Playstation, Starbucks, Steam, Xbox Live, and Facebook gift cards. There is an option to redeem them for PayPal cash too. Options vary based on the country. Denominations vary for all the redemption options. For example, the Amazon gift card is available in $1, $3 and $5 denominations. PayPal cash is available $3, $5 and $10 denominations.

2. Storm Play

Storm Play Android

Storm Play is like any other rewards app where you get paid for trying new products, games, apps, services and by watching videos. But here’s the twist. Instead of dollars or reward points, you get paid if Bitcoin and Etherium.

You start out in the StormTask tab, select a task, view how many Bolts it’s worth and get started. The description will tell you just what’s to be done and what your goals are. Currently, most of the tasks are US based.

The cool thing is that you can request a withdrawal to Bitcoin or Etherium every 30 minutes.

3. InboxDollars

InboxDollars Android

InboxDollars on Android is an all-in-one app for making some extra cash. First of all, you get a $5 sign up bonus simply by answering questions about yourself. Then you can make money by taking surveys that are relevant to you, installing apps, signing up for services or (and here’s my favorite) for watching videos.

From the TV tab, you can just start watching videos. Some videos can actually be interesting. Videos are sorted based on interests (like technology, food and more). So you’re bound to find something interesting and informational in there. For each video, you’ll earn one or two cents.

InboxDollars is one of the oldest loyalty clubs on the web. It’s been going on since 2006! The payout varies based on your personal information and your location. For surveys which are relevant for you, you can expect anywhere between 1-5 dollars for surveys ranging from 5-30 minutes of your time.

To cash out, you need at least $30 in your account. If you wait till you’ve got $40 in your account, InboxDollars will waive the $3 transaction charge. While the amount varies based on the survey, you can expect to make anywhere between $1 and $5 for a survey that only takes a couple of minutes to fill out.

4. WHAFF Rewards

Whaff Android

Whaff Rewards is another app that pays for installing and using promoted applications. Installing most promoted apps earns you $0.005-0.010. There’s a reward of $0.005-0.020 in case of most apps for using the apps for 1-4 minutes daily.

For some apps, there’s a reward of $0.010/day to even just not uninstall the app for a couple of days. There are higher rewards for completing missions in some games (as high as $0.70). There’s also an option to watch a video ad from two different promoters, which pays $0.005 each.

One thing we really appreciate in the app is that the tasks are valued directly in real currency and the earning is added to the account instantly after completing the task. On the flip side, the redeeming earnings are charged as high as 18.18%.

5. Google Opinion Rewards

Google Opinion Rewards

Surveys are one of the oldest methods of making some quick bucks, and Google does have something to offer in that aspect – Google Opinion Rewards. Google sends a notification whenever there’s a new short survey for you.

These surveys include opinion surveys, merchant satisfaction surveys and services you’ve used, consider a hotel stay for instance. Google pays anywhere from 10 cents to up to $1 for each quick survey on the Google Opinion Rewards app.

Unfortunately, the payment is done in terms of Google Play Store credit. But you can easily earn a couple of bucks a week that you can use to buy apps, books, and movies on the Play Store.
