BEWARE! Don't waste your time
There aren't many Gigs. The one I did get was for a UPS Store. I thought great, and applied for it. I went and did the Gig, but emailed support because one question was to get exterior photos of the store in daylight, but you couldn't get license plates or people in the photos, since parking was right in front of the store. I tried waiting, but it's a busy place and every time one car would pull out another would pull in. So I ended up taking the photos with the license plates and emailed support stating it was impossible. I then submitted the Gig. A few days later, I received an email stating the client might have questions, and I would receive an email if they needed more info. They told me to submit my work, to which I was confused because I thought I already had, so I waited. Today, I received an email stating that I was removed from the Gig, because I didn't complete the additional information needed. Great, I would've submitted additional information if they would've told me what it was! I never got an email with further instruction. So now I don't get paid, and the Gig is back on the map to do, but I can guarantee you, it won't be me that will be completing it. It may have only been 7 miles away, but the $4 payment just isn't worth it to drive back down there for the amount of time you have to put into your Gig.
Don't waste your time. There are plenty of other apps out there that will pay you for your time. Skip this one! Beware!
Too many problems to list
The original version of the app was far better, in my opinion, than the current version. It allowed us to communicate with other Gigwalkers in the community. We had a great time sharing tips and tricks, getting to know each other, and having a line of communication with the Gigwalk staff. But, they've taken that feature away. The current version of the app is loaded with problems that make it harder to do the work. The Gigwalk concept is great, but the app falls short on lots of basic things. It crashes quite a bit when you use the in-app camera. When I add photos from my camera roll, the load wait time is huge! When a gig is approved, the confirmation email no longer tells you what job was submitted or which jobs were approved. It just has a generic name for all Bing jobs. ("Photograph a local business") Gigwalk often sends canned responses to specific questions about jobs. These do nothing to help the Gigwalker complete the work. I used the app quite a lot last summer. But, there was a long dry spell over the last year. Now new gigs are back. But, there are still problems that need fixing. I'm still hopeful they will listen to their users and make some desperately needed improvements to the app and to the gig process.
The client is always right, which is not fair to the user
I've been using this app since January of this year. I saw it advertised on the today show as a great way to make extra cash. I'm a stay at home mom and thought this would be a great way for me to earn some money and explore my area. It has allowed me to do both. However, I don't like that I'm not able to give feedback to the client while performing the task, or pause my time until I get a response for my issue. You see not all tasks are straight forward as the survey asks or I have been sent to a wrong or non existent location. I've tried messaging the client in these instances or answered the best I can at the moment and submitting the work. Instead of a response or a correction on the client's end I've been removed and not paid for the gig which is not fair to me as I do make an earnest attempt to complete every gig I apply to. It's negatively affected my rating. Also, the photo-synth jobs are WAY too picky!!! They've rejected the whole gig for one small error for one question. Then you don't get paid for any of your work which was performed as requested. Not fair! What do they do with the useable content? Overall I'm only moderately satisfied with the app as a way to make $.
