Top 10 Gig Economy Apps To Make Extra Money

As most of the world transitions from a production-based economy to a service-based economy, gig economy apps have become a new way to find and make a little extra scratch on the side. Check out this list of these top ten apps that will help you make money with a side hustle.

10. Eatwith

Eatwith connects aspiring chefs with those who want to have a good meal by allowing chefs to plan and prepare dinners for guests. It is like the Airbnb of meals, as you get a chef-prepared meal in the chef's home. Eatwith vets all their chefs before they are approved to use the service, so you can guarantee you are going to get a quality meal.

9. Etsy

Etsy is an online marketplace for anyone who makes hand-made goods. It does not matter if you crochet, woodwork, make soap, whatever your hobby if it produces an item you can sell it on Etsy. You will need at least ten items to open a store on Etsy, but it is the best online marketplace for selling your hand-made items.

8. Rover

Stop leaving your canine friend at home alone while you are at work all day with the Rover dog-sitting app. It connects you with vetted sitters in your area and allows you to book your favorite sitters with just the touch of a button. For dog sitters and walkers, it can dramatically increase the number of job offers you receive.

7. Soothe

Nothing works better to help you relax than a massage, but making time for visiting the massage parlor can be enough to negate the relaxation. Soothe solves this problem by hooking you up with licensed massage therapists who are willing to come to your home for the ultimate relaxing massage.

6. Fiverr

Fiverr's unique premise is that you can post micro-jobs for just $5. Some examples include voice actors for video and other media, graphic design work, and programming and website help. It is a robust marketplace filled with gig economy professionals who are willing to work for a nominal fee.

5. Dolly

There's nothing worse in the world than moving, but Dolly aims to make that easier by connecting people who have trucks and can move things with people who need them moved. Instead of turning to a sketchy moving company, consider hiring either a Truck or a Truck & Muscle to get your stuff where it needs to go.

4. Takl

Have a few things around the house that need to be serviced, like a broken gutter or a leaky faucet? You can book professionals to help you with household tasks using the Takl app. One of the main benefits is that you pay what the app says instead of unreliable estimates from contractors.

3. Postmates

Need something delivered quickly? It does not matter if it is restaurant food, groceries, dry cleaning, alcohol, or anything else, the contractors that work for Postmates will get it to you. It is in limited availability across the United States but continually expanding to new markets.

2. Airbnb

Airbnb has turned the hospitality sector on its head as more people opt to stay in homes and guest suites than forking out for an expensive hotel. It operates in all 50 states and connects homeowners with interested short-term renters.

1. Uber

Uber's gig driving service is what sparked the gig economy apps revolution, so it makes sense that it has taken the top spot on our list. Uber operates in hundreds of cities across the globe and provides a safe and reliable alternative to traditional taxi services by employing vetted drivers who have passed secure background checks.

Component prices of iPhone X is $415

It's no secret that the iPhone X is one expensive phone to produce, but how much is Apple exactly paying? Chinese industry watchers have apparently investigated the matter, and have calculated the total cost of components present in Cupertino's latest phone. Apple announced the iPhone X with an exaggerated price of $999 on September 12. The sum is $412.75, or 60% cheaper than the retail price.

Unsurprisingly, the most expensive part of the iPhone X is the Samsung-made 5.8-inch Super Retina display. It’s price is $80 per unit. Other sources have suggested that the cost is even greater at $100-$120 per unit. The NAND memory, acquired from Toshiba is $45 for 256 GB. The 3 GB RAM is half - only $24. Aside from that, Apple's powerful new A11 Bionic chipset costs $26, while the Qualcomm modem that's built on top of it stands at $18. The 3D Face ID sensor is worth $25, while the front glass panel costs $18.


One might argue that a 59% profit margin is quite a respectable achievement. Well, that's not exactly the case. There are a bunch of extra expenses not included in here, such as logistics, manufacturing, the cost of producing the software, and most importantly Research and Development.

Diageo to Reignite Virtual Reality Efforts with Experience Focused on Dangers of Binge Drinking

Beverage Alcohol Leader Deepens Commitment to Responsible Drinking in Second Installment of Groundbreaking VR Series

NORWALK, Conn. (August 30, 2017) – In time for Labor Day – one of the most popular days for alcohol consumption in the U.S. – and back-to-school season, Diageo, a global leader in beverage alcohol, today announced plans for a new virtual reality (VR) experience that will immerse consumers of legal drinking age in a first-person, multi-perspective story about the dangers of binge drinking. This initiative represents the company’s latest effort – and its second leveraging VR technology – to inform consumers about the importance of responsible decision-making when drinking.

Within the innovative realm of VR, the new program follows Diageo’s successful October 2016 launch of “Decisions,” a first-of-its-kind 360° experience that placed consumers in the front seat of a fatal drunk driving crash. In the four months after its introduction, “Decisions” accumulated almost 14 million views. The experience made a significant impact on consumer perceptions with 73% of viewers surveyed after watching the film saying they are now more likely to stop other people from drinking and driving. In addition, 75% of viewers said they will prevent drinking and driving by planning ahead with a designated driver.

The new program around binge drinking is once again being spearheaded by Diageo’s Digital and Technology Partnerships teams. Joining Diageo in the effort will be Jaunt, the immersive cinematic experience company, who will help with the creative vision, production, development and distribution of the experience.

“We made the choice to break into VR with our social responsibility program because it gives us the proper medium to explore numerous dangerous drinking situations in a very real way,” said James Thompson, Chief Marketing and Innovation Officer, Diageo North America. “Telling people about the effects of irresponsible decision-making when drinking is one thing – but giving them the opportunity to see, hear and feel what can happen because of even one bad choice is a potential game changer. ‘Decisions’ and its portrayal of the impact of drunk driving stuck with viewers, even after they removed their headsets. Now, we’re aiming to prevent binge drinking with the same high impact intervention.”


Diageo is focused on reducing binge drinking, drunk driving and underage drinking. Recognized globally for setting the standard in social responsibility and responsible marketing, Diageo views the newly announced binge drinking experience – and its ongoing VR series – as the latest initiative to remind adults to drink responsibly. Whether it’s pioneering Safe Rides Home designated driver activations or leveraging apps, such as Lyft and Uber, to remind consumers there are alternatives to getting home if they’ve been drinking, Diageo is continually looking for new and inventive ways to reach and impact consumers via emerging platforms and technologies.
