Are There Apps to Make Money?

| Updated on February 28, 2024

Considering the number of apps that exist to scam people nowadays, it is not wrong of you to think whether there are any apps that can be used to make money.

By this, we don’t mean apps that can help you land a job or find work on a freelance basis. Instead, we mean apps that can either make money for you in the background or require little effort on your end to generate cash.

Thankfully, many such apps can help you make money easily and legitimately. We will be looking at three such apps, starting with Honeygain.


Honeygain is the easiest app that you can use to make money. The concept is simple: companies constantly demand access to publicly available worldwide web data. Therefore, they need it to be without location-based restrictions, which actually could make data inaccurate (f.e prices might differ depending on the location), or even more cases like brand infringements or verifying the apps. 

The best thing about Honeygain is that once you download and set up the app, you can continue on with your daily life while the application is earning you money. What is important is that the application has set the minimum threshold ($20). You will be free to withdraw the earnings as you see fit, or if you like, hold until you feel the need to withdraw. There are two payment methods available – PayPal or BTC. 

How to Earn from Honeygain

The app is built on simplicity, and setting it up is as easy as you can imagine. Here is how you can use the app:

  1. Go to the Honeygain website and download Honeygain (the app is available on Android, Windows, macOS, iOS, and Linux).
  2. Setup your account and open the app. Remember that the more devices you add to the app, the more earnings you will incur.
  3. Invite your friends.
  4. The app will generate money for you in the background. Once you hit the withdrawal limit, you will be able to withdraw the cash.

Tips to Increase Earnings From Honeygain

Here are a few tips that you can use to increase your earnings on Honeygain:

  • Use multiple devices.
  • Earn credits by opting into the social media polls and research surveys.
  • Enter their “Lucky Pot” lottery by opening the app daily. The winners of the lottery get a random number of additional credits.
  • Invite other people to Honeygain (you make 10% of their lifetime earnings).


Foap is an excellent app for people who like to take photos and videos on their phones. Foap essentially allows you to sell those photos on the web and get paid for them.

This app is ideal for people who love to travel. Whenever you go to a new place, you will probably take many photos. Why not upload some of the good ones.

Photos on Foap usually sell for anywhere between $5-100. The rate at which they sell depends on the quality and relevance of the picture. The fee is then split between the user and Foap.

The great thing is that you do not need to pay attention to Foap to make money actively. Simply upload any photo that you think other people will be interested in. Eventually, you will make money from the app as someone somewhere will be interested in purchasing your photos.

How to Earn From Foap

Foap is a great app to make money for people into photography. All you need to do is to download the Foap app on your phone. After that, register an account and start uploading photos.

Once a photo is sold, the payment will be deposited into your account. You can then use a PayPal account to withdraw the payment.


This is the last app that we are looking at. Slidejoy pays you to show you ads. The app will put ads on your home screen. This could be a problem for many people, especially as it may take up space from important notifications. However, if you think this sacrifice is worth making a little extra cash, this app is excellent for you.

Sadly, this app is not available for iOS users as the lock screen on iOS is not customizable. However, Android users can look at as many ads as they like to increase their earnings.

How to Earn From Slidejoy

Simply download the app and enable the ads only on our home screen. If you have a little bit of time on your hands, you can swipe up on the ad to view another one. This is an easy way to increase your earnings from the app.


As you can see, you can find apps to make money without much difficulty. However, just make sure that you do not use apps that require you to put in a lot of effort without much reward. From all the apps to make money, Honeygain is our favorite, as it pays you to be connected to the internet literally. However, Slidejoy and Foap are also great alternatives.
