Have you ever wished that instead of spending all your money on apps, you could actually make some coin off of one? Thanks to the Field Agent app, this is now possible. Think of it as a market place where companies post “jobs” and iPhone users can make money by simply completing them.
What is Field Agent? It’s an app that begins with a Client (who needs information) creating a job requesting specific information via its website. Field Agent then reviews and broadcasts a request to Agents, (iPhone users in the field) who have installed the free Field Agent App. Agents use their iPhones to collect and return information and get paid for the service. Payments can range from $2 to $8, depending on the job’s degree of difficulty.
From what I gather, many of the jobs are of the ‘Pricing Survey’ type, where you have to perform a price check of an item (with photo) and enter the data via the app. There’s even a Rep Score system where you earn points by completing jobs within the allotted time frame. The higher your score, the better the jobs offered. This innovative approach to creating jobs from an iPhone app is still fairly new (currently not a whole lot of job posting at the moment and only in the US), but if it does take off, Field Agent could be great to earn a bit of side money without a whole lot of effort.
