App ideas?

Have you ever thought, 'I wish there was an app for that'? Just being nosey, not trying to steal ideas :p ;)

How about an app that allows you to blog on any of your favorite sites, but blocks the post if you are being a **** douche bag?!

An app that makes all photos square and washed out. Would be a cool April Fool's... oh, wait... darn!

How about an app that lets you message people for free, is incredibly secure and you can base a whole platform and niche delivery around it, forget about it, focus on other things, then give it away for free to all the other platforms out there... oh, wait .... lol

1st though, an app to interpret what you were trying to post vs what you ended up posting.

I love it when people create accounts just to be... well... douche bags :)

On a serious note, I do have an idea for a game rather than an app, that I personally think could be the next big thing, and I can't believe it hasn't been done properly. People have attempted the game on the Play Store and app store l, but they have not been made very well.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to who I can contact and present my ideas to? Or does anyone have any good development skills on here? Pm me if you do, thanks.

Good point - who'd post a truly good idea right here and in public?

Actually, why not? There is no such thing as good idea - it's all pretty relative. Steve Jobs proved that you don't need any good ideas to sell overpriced gadgets. All you need is to take a lot of bad ideas and implement and market them correctly.

Let's generalize it a little. App that allows you to communicate across all platforms without NSA and GCHQ spying on you?

CTPAHHIK,

Steve Jobs proved that you don't need any good ideas to sell overpriced gadgets.

That is a bit generalising. Even for you:p :p
Having said that: there's a misconception as to what IS innovation.
There's nothing wrong with stealing ideas and making them work. You can still be innovative. Take literature. Nothing was invented in the last 4 hundred years when it comes to novels. But there are plenty of innovative approaches to narrative structure, style etc etc...
The first guy/s who carved a stone wheels - yep, they were inventors. Even innovators, maybe. But additional innovations and inventions that made tires possible that you can use to drive 300mph
are also innovative.
Apple didn't invent touchscreen phones, but they sure as sh*t were the first to launch a mass produced gadget that combined a usable touchscreen with a fingerfriendly UI. THAT is innovation. So much so, that Android handset alliance brothers ditched dozens of early prototype that were ALL qwerty devices... To focus on touchscreen devices.

That app is called the Far Far Corner of Your Backyard where you talk person to person in
an obscure Navajo dialect.

You are confusing innovation and ideas. Usable touchscreen with finger friendly UI is an idea - it was tried before Steve and failed. Making it work is implementation and innovation. MasterMunt's idea is neither good or bad, useful or useless - it's what you do with it and how you do it. In his mind it sure is brilliant, but in real world it could be far fetched.
Here is a wheel invention.
