Gigwalk Pays You to Explore Your City With Your iPhone

iPhone owners looking to make some extra money need to check out Gigwalk, a website that pays users for completing crowdsourced odd jobs.

The odd jobs in question range from scoping out a store's staff to checking the laws on a certain street. All of the jobs are crowdsourced and pay between $3 and over $50.

Not everyone can start out making the big bucks: to earn the high-paying Gigwalk gigs, you've got to build up your "Street Cred" by completing tons of lower-paying jobs. This provides an incentive to consistently use Gigwalk. It also, as the company says, provides you a reason to get out and explore your surroundings. Gigwalker is currently available as an iPhone app and is only available to residents of the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York City, South Florida, San Diego and Philadelphia.
