    Mobile apps for earning 28th Nov 14 at 8:49 PM
    Hi everyone, sorry if this has been asked before, but I was wondering if anyone has a good list of apps they use for earning, and maybe some worth avoiding?

    I was also wondering how much they affect your data?

    Thanks in advance.

    Anyone got a Roamler sign up Code? I am an eager beaver to get one.

    Can offer sign up codes for field agent, clicnwalk, crowdlab, and market force in return.

    I'm already with Field Agent and Clicnwalk, but haven't heard of crowdlab - are they similar to Field Agent or do you do videos?

    Oh dear, I'm another one!

    Please.....does anyone else have an invite for Roamler? xx

    Also, I'm trying to put in my details for Clic and Walk, and I'm having awful problems with the phone number bit! It keeps saying "you must select a dial code" - nothing I put in works. Any clues?

    Many thanks x

    I don't remember having to enter a dial code and looking at my profile it just asks for the telephone number and automatically shows a country code, maybe first you can you double check if you selected the correct country, then if UK the dial code you might need is 0044 or just +44

    Over on the Money Shed forum there is an invite code thread for Roamler, I got one from the guy that runs the forum there, and also the reps for Clic and Walk, Streetspotr and more post there regularly to help with things.

    Streetspotr have some tasks they want completed ASAP, so they're now paying £15 for each one. I've done two of the HMV ones and they're really simple.

    The locations are:

    Muffin Break - Carlisle, Dundee, Livingston.
    HMV – Blackpool, Gloucester, Llandudno, Swansea, Thanet, Ayr, Canterbury, Guernsey
    I like to make money
    Best wins: £3,000 luxury holiday, holiday in Cornwall, £250 Murad Skincare hamper, angle grinder


    Make £10 a day challenger - it pays for trips to Florida!

    Thought I'd add a summary of my experiences after signing up for a few recommended on MSE.

    Roamler - great, usually plenty of tasks for around £2-4 a time, occasionally up to £9 plus refunded coffees (that was a good week!), can be gruelling/boring/stressful but sometimes fun too...pretending to be a mystery shopper whilst taking photos in a shoebox sized convenience store is quite challenging! The payment comes through within moments of you requesting it (wait until it's over £20 or you'll lose a percentage in Paypal fees) and the team who communicate with you in-app are generally friendly and reasonable - be warned they do sometimes reject tasks if photos are blurry or similar so take care to follow the instructions as closely as you can.

    Clic and Walk - Better than the MSE summary, maybe it's a new development but they often have £5 tech tasks in electrical shops where you mystery shop speakers, remote controls etc, often two different tasks per store so easy to earn a decent whack if there are a few PC Worlds or similar near you.

    StreetSpotr...grr, this one really annoys me. They take around a month to pay you for each task, the app is fiddly and counter-intuitive, the in-app team are rude and inflexible, it frequently crashes whilst on the job and you have to restart your phone (a bit embarrassing if you're supposed to be mystery shopping), it posts requests for tasks which have already been done - as an example, there's been a request to take a picture of Go Pro displays wherever you might find one. Then they went and listed lots of places with Go Pros as specific tasks, you go there to do the job only to find on the map that someone's already done the task under the previous 'find a Go Pro' banner. So now it's stuck in limbo with loads of tasks listed as available, nobody is doing them as they've already been done, yet no new jobs coming through.
    Even worse, they once invited me to buy a hair product in Tesco (phone alert goes off in store, sounds like coins falling on the floor, was right at the end of my shop so had to go back in, annoying) which they would refund if I answered some questions...ok...find there's nothing I want but pick something anyway knowing it will be refunded, do the task and submit it, but they said they had no record so wouldn't pay or even just refund for the product. I had a receipt, but they wanted a screen cap to prove I'd submitted it, which was not something I even knew I could do on a phone. I politely remonstrated with them but they wouldn't budge, said they were a small start up with no budget (yeah right, they seem to cover most of Europe) so ended up £7 out of pocket (admittedly not a fortune, but I wouldn't be doing these jobs if I was loaded!).
    As a contrast when the Roamler app messed up in a similar fashion they refunded me for the product and even added a little extra on top for my time.

    Yoobic - signed up over 6 months ago, never received a single task.

    Task 360 all the way. I am still unable to take it in. I made £28 in 2days doing simple tasks. Some as simple as just walking into a shop as a normal customer and just checking if they had a specific product/brand in stock and taking a photo of it. 3minutes job for £5, not bad at all. I am loving this Task 360 App.
    By the way, I also found inboxforpounds a great money making online destination. Do surveys etc and earn. Ive made £11.52 just this last 8days or so.

    I use something that can earn you money from your mobile. It's not an App but can use mobile phone to earn extra cash. I am new to MSE (avid reader) so doubt I can post links yet. Message me if you want to know more. It's really helped me and earned me way more than anything else I've tried.

    Cheers
    Mike
