You don’t really need to be programming wizard to start making money with iPhone apps. Here are some apps anyone with an iPhone can make some extra cash with.

With the release of iOS 5, the iPhone has become able to do more than ever. However, few people are actually aware that iPhone can earn you a paycheck.

1. Gigwalk

Gigwalk is a free app that can get you started making money no more than 5 minutes. Simply download and install it from the App store, complete a brief registration form and you are all set to go.

Gigwalk uses your iPhone’s GPS receiver to show you nearby “jobs”. A typical job in Gigwalk may involve buying a drink and noting whether the clerk asked for ID visiting, a restaurant and taking pictures of the menu or photographing red-light cameras at a specific intersection. These jobs typically pay between $3 and $10.

However, not all jobs are paying — some give you “streetcred” points, and others require streetcred points to access them — a way of rewarding industrious Gigwalkers with special jobs. Some of the non-paying include picking up trash to beautify a park and stuff like that. From an ecological point of view, there are worse things you could be doing with your time.

Gigwalk isn’t yet available everywhere, but the list of Gigwalk cities is constantly expanding. Payments are sent through PayPal.

2. Field Agent.

Supposedly “the first app that pays you,” FieldAgent is similar to Gigwalk and came out a year before it. There’s a wider average range of pay here – “most jobs pay between $2 and $8. Tasks are offered all over the country, and some are surveys that can be completed anywhere.

Another advantage over Gigwalk: FieldAgent handles PayPal’s transaction fees, so you get the full face value of the task. But it can be more competitive than Gigwalk – when a nearby task is announced, users get a notification by phone or email and the first person to accept the task has two hours to complete it. There’s also a priority system where better-ranked agents (users who get jobs done on time and don’t make mistakes) get first dibs on new tasks.

3. WeReward

Simply put, WeReward pays you to become an advertisement. You get paid points (worth a penny each) to photograph yourself at local businesses and with products you’ve purchased – like 50 points for you with a cup of coffee at Starbucks. You can still earn points with check-ins without photos, but you get fewer points for it – and you need to earn 1,000 points before you can cash in.

4. AppRewards

You get paid for trying and reviewing other iPhone apps. In some cases, you don’t even have to try an app, all you have to do is watch a promotional video for it. You need 3,500 points for a $10 PayPal credit, and there are gift card options too .

5. Create an app

No, it’s not nearly as difficult as you might think, and doesn’t have to involve any programming whatsoever. Sites like appmakr let you create an iPhone app in no time, especially if you already have a blog, website, or a YouTube account.
