App: Foap – Free
If you are interested into selling stock photography, this new app will interest you: Foap is an app that will turn your iPhone photos into dollars. The formula is simple: you upload your best iPhone photos without filter, pass through an approval stage and if they are good enough, you will earn 50% of the revenues, which is roughly $5 per sold photo. The app is at the moment a bit unstable but the concept is great if you want to make money with your photos.
