Apps, what would we do without them? Wherever you go today, apps are there and they’e playing a big part in our every day lives. There is an app for almost everything you need, from financial management apps to app that learn you how to play a guitar.

Our lives became easier, ok, they became easier from time to time, I admit that sometimes all those updates can be quite annoying but we like when app saves our time and money.

Why we love apps?

We love them for several reasons:

– they save money and time

– they connect us with friends and family

– they help us to learn something new and to feel special

– last but not least, they make us money.

How Apps Make Money for People?

It’s pretty obvious, people who made apps are now millionaires, most of the new online millionaires came from App business. Some are young, as young as 17 year old can be, or even in their early 30’s, it doesn’t matter. Because whoever came into this field is now a millionaire, or is making a big bucks right now.

They make money by showing advertising on their apps, creating premium features or selling monthly subscription to the app. If you want to make money, it will be a bit harder, but you can do it in two ways:

– find an app that actually pays people for participating in different types of tasks.

– use website like airpush to reach app traffic and promote CPA offers to them.
