The iPhone is probably your constant companion, and you might as well make some money out of it. You know, maybe to offset the amount you spent on it – even if only by a fraction.
There are apps which allow you to earn real-world rewards, such as Shopkick.
If, however, you want to receive cold hard cash then you’ll want to check out Erli Bird.
This platform has been in existence for several years now, and they’re recruiting new iPhone (and Android, actually) users to be beta testers for apps.
The idea is to reach out to early adopters who want to test out new apps before they are launched. Early adopters who sign up can earn up to $10 for their feedback.
From the other end, startups and dev shops launch their “campaigns” so they can connect with the early adopters that are part of Erli Bird. Based on the feedback they receive, they can tweak, fine tune, and make sure their apps are user ready before launch.
In addition to apps, early birds can beta tests sites and gadgets, so there is a lot of potential here.
So, if you are interested in making a few bucks here and there, sign up to be a beta tester.
