Gigwalk allows you to use smartphone to earn cash

ATLANTA -

Isn't it about time your smartphone started paying for itself? Well, there just may be a way with an app called Gigwalk!

When Alpharetta resident John Flie is on his iPhone, it's probably not personal but business.

"I'm a single dad of two little boys so extra money is always key," said Flie.

He says he's discovered the perfect side gig. It's called Gigwalk.

"You just walk in, do the gig, answer a couple of questions, take a picture or two, send and within a couple of hours, you get paid," Flie said.

Gigwalk turns you into an on-the-ground inspector for big companies. After you download the app, you complete tasks like verifying street signs, or checking inventory. The gigs pay anywhere from $7 to $90 a piece. Flie says it's paid off for him.

"I've made close to $1000 over the almost year I've been doing it," said Flie.

The app shows you a map of available gigs near you.

"So, if we're on the way to grandpa's house, I can just pick a couple of gigs along the way, take an extra 20 or 30 minutes to get there and make an extra $20 or $30 on the way to grandpa's," Flie said.

Flie says he does one or two gigs a day. A gig at a local sports store paid him $10 to verify the music levels inside the store. It took him a total of two minutes, and the money is in his account within a matter of hours. His next gig -- checking the quality of a local bagel company.

"They pay you to eat and they pay for your food. So that was an easy one, I've got to eat," said Flie.
