Get Paid to Test Web and Mobile Application

I mentioned that get paid to use mobile apps in last post. You also can get paid to be a tester of software application or mobile apps. Application/app developers not only need quality assurance tests for the software development, but also need user acceptance tests (beta testing) and feedbacks from general user populations.

To become a software application/app tester, you will need to have a working computer with Internet access and/or Smartphone with Internet. To test a software application/app, you will need to download and install the application/app to your PC or Smartphone and follow the test instruction to perform the test. After completion of testing, you will need to go through a post test survey or write your feedback, and then you will get paid for the testing work.

There are companies offering software testing works:

uTest offers it testers opportunities to test their client’s applications/apps. Here is how it works:

  1. Sign up as tester
  2. Create a profile based on your testing skills, environment and location
  3. Get invited to Test Cycles based on information in your profile, your tester rating and customer demand
  4. Review the scope and instructions before you start testin.
  5. Grading points are assigned for every report you submit, which factors into your tester rating. The higher your tester rating, the higher your payout rates are, which results in more money per approved report. Improve your testing skills by exposure to various testing assignments and become a better tester.

UserTesting offers its testers opportunities to earn $10 per website test and $15 per mobile test. Here is how it works:

  1. Must be at least 18 years old to sign up

  3. Use the screen recorder to record your screen and verbal comments as you browse a sample website
  4. Fill out a one-page form with your demographic information (gender, computer experience, etc.)
  5. Own one or more of the following devices: iPhone, iPad, Android phone, Android tablet, Windows phone for mobile testing

MyAppRating offers its tester opportunities to rate apps on an iPhone, iPad, iTouch, BlackBerry or Android device. Here is how it works:

  1. Sign up as tester.
  2. Select app from categories of its publishers' apps
  3. Walk through a series question to rate the app
  4. Get paid for each app that you rate

Get paid to test web and moblie application is fun way to earn some extra money. But it will not make you rich in any way. To verify if an application test site is scam or not, you can check online through review sites such as or do research through Better Business Bureau.
