At last! Your iPhone can make you money as well as just costing you, because someone has come up with an app that pays you to use it. OnePoll is a survey app from market research team OnePoll.com that pays you to take surveys on it: anything from 10p to £5 a go.
Users can take as many surveys as there are available at any given time. Sign-up takes less than 30 seconds, and most surveys contain between 10 and 20 questions, according to MobileMarketing. The surveys look quite boring, but - that's not the point.
When you accumulate £40, OnePoll transfers the cash directly into your PayPal or bank account. A pretty sweet deal. Mobile micropayments have been in use in Africa where people with mobile phones can perform small tasks like tagging pictures and get paid small amounts that accumulate.
Web users of OnePoll.com can transfer their accounts to their mobile. An Android app should be coming out soon.
Kevin Smith, research manager at OnePoll.com, came up with the idea for the app. "Not only will it allow OnePoll to take the research industry forward by providing a viable method to conduct mobile research, but (it will) also present an opportunity to iPhone users to earn cash on the move.
The app's free if you're wondering.
