We’re all looking forward to a little free time over the holidays. Our words of wisdom: Don’t get sucked into hours-long sessions of Candy Crush. Instead, make yourself useful.
Spare5 is a new free app that gives you tasks to complete in exchange for a few extra dollars a day. It's basically an on-demand work platform that breaks large, corporate, operational problems into bite-sized jobs that practically anyone can complete in their spare time--things like adding descriptive tags to photos.
Think of it like Task Rabbit, except you can do it on the train, in your room or while you’re waiting for your caramel macchiato. And just like that, you’ve earned yourself some cash. It's definitely better than getting a high score by clearing “jelly” off the board.
