7 Legitimate Passive Income Apps That Pay!

Learn How You Can Easily Make Over $300 A Year By Simply Installing These 7 Apps On Your Smartphone and Other Mobile Devices!One of my favorite ways to make money online is through passive income opportunities, such as blogging. But there’re many other ways to make passive income, and you can even make a passive income on your phone.

Today I’d like to share with you seven legitimate passive income apps that you can install on your smartphone to make money. The best thing about these apps is it requires a few minutes to download the apps up front, after that there’s nothing you need to do to keep earning.

All of these apps do some sort of “tracking,” whether it be location or browsing history, you’ll be giving out information in exchange for some extra cash.

If you’re not comfortable with the tracking, I recommend checking out other ways to earn an extra income.

These passive income apps are a great way to earn a small income each month, but if you’re looking for a full-time income these apps won’t give you that. If you want a large online income, check out My #1 Recommendation, it’s how I made over $13,000 online last month!

Let’s get started here’s 7 passive income apps that actually pay!

Scam Free Passive Income Apps That Pay

Panel App

I’ve used the Panel App for about a year now, and although it’s not a huge money maker I installed it once and haven’t touched it since. The Panel App pays you points leaving the app installed on your mobile device. You can earn extra points by answering surveys about where you were at a specific time, but it’s not required.

You can redeem your points for Amazon Gift Cards starting at $1 or purchase sweepstakes entries for gift cards and PayPal payments.

The Panel App is available on Apple and Android mobile devices. This app does track your location.

Savvy Connect

Savvy Connect is part of a well-known survey site called Survey Savvy. It’s a browser extension and app that can be installed on your computer or mobile devices. Installing Savvy Connect earns you higher paying surveys and unlocks projects that pay much more than surveys.

For example, all US members are invited to a Gold Project that pays $60, all you need to do is leave the app installed on your device for 90 days.

Savvy Connect pays via check and has no minimum cash out amount!

Nielsen Mobile will pay you to download their app on your phone. It tracks how you use your browser and how you interact with videos on your mobile device.

Depending on your demographics you can earn around $50 a year by keeping this app installed.

Media Insiders

Media Insiders is a company that will pay you $5 a month for having the app installed on your device. You can install the app on up to 3 devices earning you a maximum of $15 a month.

The app tracks information about how you use the browser on your phone and also has a feature that can track what TV programs you’re watching for extra cash.

After you earn $5, you can cash out for rewards like PayPal and Amazon gift cards.

Screenwise Trends  Now Cross Media Panel

Screenwise Trends is a browser extension that also lets you download an app on your smartphone and tablet to earn more.

If you connect all three devices, you’ll earn $6 your first week and $1 per device each week after.

You can cash out your earnings once you reach $25. Amazon gift cards are available plus a few other charity donations.

SmartphoneMate pays $3 for smartphones and $5 for each tablet per month. The app pays via e-gift cards to Amazon.

DataCoup is a relatively new company that offers an app that you can get paid to download but also pays you to link social networks.

The amount you’ll earn per week is based on how many profiles you connect. If you link all your accounts, you can earn $50-$100 a year.

The app pays via direct deposit after you earn $5.

      Thanks for reading and sharing (just so readers know I have not reviewed or done any research on the site linked above, join at your own discretion)


  1. Hi Brok,

    I agree that these are one of the best apps to get legitimate passive incomes, but I think you didnt needed to focus only on the ones that give money from using web and one problem with few on these list is that you can do it only if you are in USA but for example Im not. There are great new projects that I have seen one of them are FluzFluz that makes passive income from your own and other people purchases. Basically with every day things like UBER or going to Amazoon you can get some extra bucks. This is the most legitimate that I know and the company’s that collaborate with them really are good. But there are others as well for example Dosh but well this isnt so profitable and not so useful but in general I think these kinda of apps are better to get some passive income but doing nothing more then you would do either way.
    Here are links to them if someone wants to chek it out:

  2. I received only 10 points a day and 50 point a survey on mobile performance meter app so pleas check you information

  3. Add smart panel. Pays $5 and pays $5 per month you keep it. So $60 a year. Also pays loyalty bonus cash every 90 day. Also on a network in offer vault.

  4. Hi Brok, I’m from the Philippines. Are the above-mentioned “passive income” opportunities applicable in my country? Thank you.

    • Gerardo,

      Your best bet is going to be Savvy Connect. The parent company, survey savvy, accepts members around the globe. When you sign up they should have a drop down menu that lists your country.

      With that being said, I do not know if there’s any high paying opportunities outside of the US.

      Hope this helps,


  5. Hi Brok,

    Thanks for the information, I’ll definitely check these out. While not making a fortune off of them, every little bit counts, right?

    Do you know why these companies are paying people simply to install their app and let them track? Does it serve a specific purpose?


    • Hey Kris,

      Thank you for checking out this list of passive income apps. Yes there’s a reason they’re paying you to collect information. The info gets thrown into a huge lump of information along with thousand others and paid for by companies. It does raise privacy concerns for some, but the information is supposed to be untracable back to you!

      Hope this helps,


  6. Hi Brok. I’ve had Screenwise Trends Panel on my devices for awhile now and love it! All I have to do it check in with a browser once a week and they do the rest. They recently updated their service too and cashing out payments is much faster now, which is great. I haven’t heard about Smartphone Mate but am definitely going to check it out now. I tried Media Insiders panel and didn’t like it very much at all. The system seemed more complex than I liked. And their app kept crashing on my phone. So maybe it’s just my phone because it’s not a top-notch iPhone or Samsung. Thanks for this list!

    • Awesome Sarah Thank you for reading!

      I also have been using Screenwise for a few years and the new companies is WAY better! I just got reminded I had $75 in my account a was able to immediately cash out for Amazon gift cards!

      Thanks for sharing your experiences on the other apps, I know that it screws up some peoples phones every once and a while so some aren’t always the best option!

      Thanks again for sharing
