Technology has made things interestingly easy today and everyone who doesn’t embrace it is doomed.

Numerous things today depend on technology to be successful and almost everyone today has a smartphone.

When you look at your smartphone, you probably think of ways you can use money instead of the ways you can use the phone to earn.

It’s wrong to tell you that you will stay at home and do absolutely nothing and get paid.

When people talk of working at home, some of the things they do are online.

Personally, I tend to think that money is a reward for something done well.

So if you are willing to do something with your phone, the reward might come in handy.

Android users today boast of having the most smartphone users globally.

This gives app developers a platform where they give people a chance to earn using mobile appsdownloaded on their mobile phones.

So which are some of the best apps you can download and make money using them:-
