Your iPhone can make you money — if you download Gigwalk, today’s leading Fresh App. After signing-up and applying, users can go around seven big cities, gathering small bits of information for companies to pull in a little extra scratch. Sound like a dream gig? Get all the details on Gigwalk and more below; just don’t expect your iPhone to become your principle source of income.

Gigwalk (iPhone) Free

Turn your iPhone into a means of making a little extra cash with Gigwalk, an app that lets business owners ask iPhone users to provide information they might find around their neighborhoods in seven cities. Right now, the app’s usage is limited to Los Angeles, New York City, the San Francisco Bay Area, Philadelphia, South Florida, Boston and Chicago. Gigwalk works by zeroing in on your location and allowing you to track down nearby information — for example, going to a specific intersection to find out if a road is blocked, or checking out a restaurant’s delivery options and reporting back.

The more gigs you fulfill, the more money you’ll earn and the more “street creds” you’ll rack up, which can land you bigger and more important Gigwalk gigs. Gigwalk is a bit selective in who it allows to become a gigwalker, and the gigs aren’t paying huge amounts of money, but still — it’s a free app that can let you earn a little something just for using your phone.

iEditor – All in One (iPhone, iPad) $1.99

Code junkies — take your computer coding on the go with iEditor, an iOS app that lets you type out and test computer programming code wherever you are. The app comes with a slick and easy-to-use interface that lets you try out code with multiple input data.

There are 50 different programming languages that are supported by iEditor, with a full list available in the app’s description on iTunes. And iEditor makes life easy on you by automatically saving any code you write into it, allowing you to pick up and load your work from earlier for each of the different coding languages.

Adobe Story (iPhone, iPad) Free

Writers will find a lot of use in Adobe Story, an iPhone and iPad app extension of the script-writing software available from Adobe. The app allows you to remotely access your Adobe Story documents and receive notifications on documents shared with collaborators whenever they are changed or receive comments.

You can review changes to scripts from your iPhone or iPad, make your own comments to share with collaborators or to jot down ideas, and sync all of that information back to your Adobe Story account online.
