"For me, Gigwalk is a metaphor for life: you get out of it as much effort as you put in... I meet new people, get to explore new parts of the City and I find the work incredibly rewarding."
"Gigwalk has been very helpful in matching us with usability subjects, and we are excited to have found an alternative to craigslist."

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!
Fails to Meet Expectations
Don’t be fooled by the positive reviews of this application. As a CPG professional, I’ve used both the consumer and enterprise versions of this app. In fact, I’m not quite sure which of these three issues is worse: (1) The overall poor performance of the application; (2) the across-the-board unresponsive “customer service” from Gigwalk via zendesk; or (3) the general disdain for Gigwalkers by clients who routinely enter incorrect data, lead with poor instructions, and hold Gigwalkers accountable for their own mistakes. Look, if you have the time to drive 30 miles to a gas station to take pictures of potato chips for $3 (that is, on the rare occasion when there are gigs on the app ), and don’t mind application bugs, snippy clients, or whether or not you’ll be paid: by all means, download this app. Otherwise, don’t waste your time.
I applied for a gig. Got accepted, did the gig, got paid. Simple as that. People just be sure to follow the instructions! Read beforehand and read during the gig walk, my gig required me to take a photo 10 ft away but I didn't see it until I reviewed the instructions/ tasks during the gig walk, so just be sure to read instructions beforehand and open the app during your gig walk, go over the tasks to see if there's anything else they might want you to do.
