When we are bored many of us kill time by browsing social media sights and playing games on our smartphones. While doing these activities is great, none of them will put any money in your pocket. So, if you are interested in making the most out of your spare time, and padding your pockets in the process, consider downloading an app that you can use to earn some extra money.

Although this may seem too good to be true, it really isn’t. There are a ton of legitimate and free apps that will give you the opportunity to make money by sharing photos, secret shopping, watching videos, completing surveys, and more. Most of these apps don’t pay much but they do give you the ability to earn money whenever your schedule is free.

Is curiosity killing you? Keep reading for our selection of the top apps to make money:

If you own an iPhone or an Android, this app can give you the opportunity to earn magazine subscriptions, airline miles, gift cards and more, all for doing some quick (15 to 20 minutes) surveys. Once you’ve downloaded the app, simply provide a little information about yourself to help it match you to future surveys. With this option, you can answer as few or as many questions as you want, but the more that you do, the more that you can earn.

Most of the surveys on this app pay one dollar, but there are some where you can earn up to $10. Once you’ve accumulated $35 in your account, you can request a payout. iPoll is free to download and available in both the App Store and Google Play.

You can redeem these points for gift cards from stores like Walmart, Target, and Amazon. However, if you would prefer cash, you can also redeem your points for PayPal cash.

Did you know that you can earn up to $15 a month simply for putting ads on your Android phone or tablet? Every time you pick up your phone, you’ll see a card with a promotion or new story. You can either slide left to learn more, slide up to see another card, or slide right to use your phone normally.

Whether or not you engage with the content has no bearing on the amount of money that you get paid. In other words you won’t have to do anything at all to receive your money. When it’s time to get paid you have the option to keep the money that you earned or give to one of several charities available. The app is free to download and available in Google Play right now.
