Actually, when you look at your phone, you probably think about spending money rather than making it. Your handset almost certainly cost you a pretty penny, whether in up-front cost or on-going monthly payments.

Thankfully there are plenty of apps to be found in the Google Play store which can help you recoup some of the costs.

This is how to make money with Android apps.

1.Google Opinion Rewards

It may come as little surprise to learn that Google has an app of its own that you can use to make money.

With Google Opinion Rewards you earn Google Play credit by completing surveys.

You’ll receive a notification whenever a new survey is available, and you just need to spend a few moments answering a series of questions – nothing too taxing.

Once you’ve completed a survey, you earn Google Play Store credit that you can use to buy apps, music and other things.

Many of the surveys have a deadline for completion, so make sure you don’t wait too long to complete them.

2. PiniOn

Use PiniOn to earn money with photos, opinions about services, brands and products and research.

The application offers tasks that are quick and easy to perform. You may have to leave the house, but it does not have to be bad.

You can narrow your tasks to a set address, participate virtually or book missions.

The more you participate, the more missions you receive and, therefore, more money can earn.

You can request redemption of your money to your bank account or a PayPal account.

3. Freelancer

Freelancer is not quite an app to make money online in minutes, but to find freelance jobs to earn an extra few dollars.

Employers have projects and freelancers makes proposals on execution time and the value of their services.

In the end, the freelancer is hired if their proposals match customer needs.

4. MintCoins

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.

5. AppCasher

If getting paid to test out apps seems like a great way to spend your time, AppCasher will be right up your street.

You can earn credit for installing and launching apps, and these credits can then be converted into gift cards that you can use to buy things from Amazon or iTunes.

You can opt to have cash transferred to your PayPal account instead.

You can also refer your friends to the app and, providing they use your special code, you’ll earn extra credit for each person who signs up.

6. Foap

Have you thought about making money with your photos? Foap allows the user to upload photos by following all required parameters, and put them for sale.

All images are open to buyers.

You can redeem your money once you reach $5.

7. CashPirate

CashPirate is an application that turns points into cash.

The registered users can test applications, participate in surveys, play games and invite other friends to join.

1000 points correspond to $1, which can be converted to buy items in the Play Store or be transferred to a PayPal account.
