Google offers money earning opportunity using mobile phone.

 Google Task Mate is still in beta testing mode. 

Image courtesy:

Google Task Mate is an app that we can download on our mobile (not yet, folks). Understand it as a 'crowdsourcing' technology.

Those who need some task to be completed but cannot do so by themselves will post their requirement in this app. 

Task completion will be done by anyone who has the skill and time to complete the task.

From the article I read in "Business Insider", I understand the task will be given to those who are located nearby the task poster. The article says the small tasks can be posted by Google itself or businesses owned by Google.

Types of tasks:

It can either be something you do without leaving your home. This is called a 'sitting task'.

A 'field task' involves going to a location nearby shop or another landmark that you can see as a 'pin' in Google map. Maybe you can take a photo of the location or find out if there is any other facility such as parking space, etc.

Users should use their mobile phones to complete the task. Since all the tasks are done using a mobile phone, the tasks must be very simple and payment for each completed task may not be attractive.

This is just my understanding. I may be wrong.

Read the article for better understanding of Goog's Task Mate.

Mobile apps that pay you to use.

 I am again wandering in my familiar zone. It is about money earning opportunity by using your mobile phone. 

Thus far, I always introduced absolutely genuine online income opportunities. This is the first time I am blogging about mobile apps that pays money or gift for doing some simple tasks.

If you are on your mobile several hours a day, you can try as after all, there is no money upfront at all.

The online tasks include searching the web, shopping online, answering survey questions, playing video games, selling your photos & videos, watching a movie or web series trailers, etc.

Here are the mobile apps that can fetch you small money for using them.

1. Swag Bucks (

As soon as you open the website, the following lines stare at you.

"Get Free Gift Cards & Cash for the everyday things you do online. Here's how…". 

You earn points for shopping online, watching video clips, searching the internet, and taking surveys.  You can either redeem the points earned to by goods or simply ask for the cash to be deposited in your PayPal account.

Try it as you have nothing to lose.

2. LTI Ipoll ( )

You can also download the app from the Google Play store.

This app pays users to answer surveys. Please note that surveys are very few generally. In addition, the available surveys totally depend on your profile and your online purchase history. Don't expect to leave your job and earn a thousand dollars a month by answering surveys.

The minimum payout via PayPal is $35.

3. Clashot ( )

The app pays for the photos that you take with your mobile phone. The photos you upload for selling can fetch you a minimum of 80 cents. The photo can be of appetizing food, or cool picture of a bird or any natural scene, etc.

4. Slidejoy (

This mobile app is pretty cool to use and milk money. If you are interested to earn $10 to $15 per month, please read on.

It works like this: Cash paying slides will be shown to you whenever you are on your mobile phone. You just view the slides and you are credited a small amount for that.

You need not even click on the slide to earn. However, you can still click on the slides to learn more about the content. It is up to your interest.

I reproduce a small portion of the content from their website. It explains how the app works and how you can earn money.

"Once you register on Slidejoy, every time you unlock your phone, you will get a card with news or a promotion on your lockscreen.

‐Slide UP on your lockscreen to see more news

‐Slide RIGHT on your lockscreen to unlock your phone and go to your home screen

‐Slide LEFT on your lockscreen to get more information on the content

‐Slide DOWN on your lockscreen to access your notifications and app shortcut menu".

Seems interesting and easy to earn gift cards or money.

5. Loot 

You can search the Google play store and download the Loot mobile app.

In this app, it is basically pictures of products that you need to share on your social media. I read you can earn 1 or 2 US$ per day. After downloading the app, read the onscreen instructions, and follow them to make money.

6. AppTrailers

I think this mobile app will surely kindle your interest. You get paid for viewing video clips of new mobile apps, Do It Yourself (DIY) videos, celebrity news, etc. You are awarded points to watch these videos and the earned points can be redeemed with gift cards or PayPal cash.

There may be more such mobile apps that pay users money by completing various simple actions. I liked these 6 apps that pay you.

A retirement community on the banks of Kaveri.


A retirement community on the banks of Kaveri.

It is known that senior citizens’ gated community or retirement homes in India are in big demand for the last 20 years.

Ever since the Indian computer engineers started deserting India, leaving their parents to tend for themselves, a spate of retirement homes has started springing up here and there.

Initially, the demand for taking refuge in a retirement home was centered around big cities such as Bangalore and Chennai.

Now, the trend has changed fully.  Senior citizens community homes are now being developed in villages assuring pollution-free environment and fresh vegetables and fruits.

One such retirement home for older adults is now functioning in Goovindapuram, a village near Kumbakonam, Tamilnadu.

Kumbakonam is a highly preferred place among older adults because of several temples nearby. Besides, the cost of living is considerably cheap.

Kumbakonam is well connected with rail and road networks.

‘Srivathsam’ is the name of the old age home in Kalyanapuranm, near Govindapuram, Kumbakonam.

Here is an aerial view of the gated community for senior citizens.

You can see the river Kaveri flowing adjacent to the apartment complex.

The gated community for elders is fitted with all the necessary facilities such as a library, medical care, and sattvic food.

I personally am a bit confused about its location. Is it located in Govindapuram or Kalyanapuram near Kumbakonam?
