Android users can finally make some money on the pictures they take now that Foap has finally released the app for our beloved Android OS and it is available now in the Play Store as a free app. The iOS users have had it available to them for a while, so we are happy to see that we Android users can now talk advantage of the service.
Foap is a Royalty free stock photo website where you can browse for a photo and pay a one-time $10 fee and use the photo as much as you want - it's yours to do with what you please, with no royalty fees each time it's used. For only $10 you get an unlimited license to use the photo...a pretty sweet deal for people looking for photos to use in an article.
How can you benefit from this you may ask - After you download the Foap app from the Play Store, you simply open it up and register yourself with Foap via your Facebook account or register directly with Foap using your email address and creating a password. Once registered you upload your photos to Foap where they show up in a gallery for users to rate - your photo must have a rating of 2.6 by a minimum of five viewers. Once your photo has received its rating of 2.6 it becomes available for sale and each time someone pays Foap their $10 fee, you earn $5. You will not become a millionaire, but if you take a lot of photos you could make a few bucks. If a company of person wants a special photo, they can create a Photo Mission, where the creator of the Mission can offer to pay an award amount of at least $50; Sony had paid $1000 for one submission.
