Google Paid Tasks

This won’t get you direct cash but for Android users you can get Google Play credits with Google’s own Opinion Rewards App.

Once you download and set up the app, you’ll get a notification on your phone when a short and relevant survey is ready for you, and can receive up to $1.00 in Play credits for completing it. Questions can range from, “Which logo is best?” and “Which promotion is most compelling?” to “When do you plan on traveling next?”
