Help yourself pay for that $30 a month data plan by putting that iPhone to work! 🙂 New iPhone app GigWalk pays users to take pictures of specific objects, record audio/video, or verify something live in person. For example, client TomTom asked folks to take pictures to help with their GPS service. Gigs start at $3 but go up to $90.Via Gizmodo via Techcrunch.
It kind of reminds me of Amazon’s Mechanical Turk, which uses crowd-sourcing to perform small tasks that are very difficult to automate and thus is best done with humans. Currently, there are Gigs only in the following metro areas: Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco Bay Area, Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia, South Florida.
