    Who knows anything about applications development?

    I don't, but I've got an idea that doesn't seem to have an ap yet. I'm not sure how that could be be, does anyone know anything about developing aps to see if it's worth pursuing?

    Rumor has it that the break-even on an iPhone app is about 50,000 users. That's what's required to cover the cost of the build, your lawyer and the ongoing support of all the people that spent $0.99 and now think you owe them 47 bug fixes and upgrades to every new version of iOS. Getting builds accepted by Apple can be a tough, re-iterative process. What a lot of people do instead is get a decent IP lawyer to protect your idea up front, then shop / outsource the idea to existing coding shops that have infrastructure and workflow for existing platforms.

    What do you mean by, is it worth pursuing? we need to know the idea

    Do you need any support infrastructure like servers? or can this idea run purely on the phone? you may do better with an ad supported app an giving a developer a portion of the revenue.

    I've got an idea, and that's about it. I created one webiste, and that's all the programing I want to do. Which is why I'd need a lot of help (and in more ways than one.....)

    I am working on developing two apps at the moment. But I don't know how to answer your question because anything that a client pays us is worth perusing You could perhaps just do a simple mock up and run a pole to see if people are interested. What is your target audience? Is it a game, educational, self help, promotional, social... etc?

    I'm developing an app to steal other people's app ideas.

    It's a productivity idea, aimed at people who use lists.

    First you should make an app that guards other people's app ideas from being stolen, and sell that. Then people will pay you for guarding them from yourself.
