Last night, I was toying with an app idea and I've basically figured out the design and the concept.
Only problem is, I have no experience with app development. Of course, I can always just study and do it on my own, but that will take a lot of time.
My question is what is the best way to go about this? How do you "sell" an app idea to a developer and a designer? And what will the ownership of the app be like?
Also, if there are developers out there who are interested to hear me out and looking for an app project, I am willing to collaborate. I am a software engineer myself, but I only deal with embedded systems programming.

But I think your question is what I am also seeking. I want to have an initial assessment from actual developers.
A bit of an update though: I realized that I actually have a friend who develops app for a living (for iOS though). I've already written down the basic specifics of my app idea and shared it with him. I am just waiting for his reply.
Actually I see the app to be cross-platform but I specifically mentioned to my friend that I want a simultaneous release for iOS and WP at least. :p

Are you a developer? Do you have apps published in the store? :)

That is not the entire function of the app though. Its only a part of it.
I am just having a hard time on how to describe it. If I do it vague, it would look like a copy of another app, if I tell all the details, then I'm just putting it out there for free.
I am not being cocky though and thinking this is the next big thing. But it could be so I created this thread. What is the correct process in collaborating with an app developer?

I would check out local startup meetups and mobile developer meetups. I know in Dallas, where I live, there are more than a few of each kind that can be found on meetup.com. Go and try and build a personal rapport with a developer(s), that will probably be the only way you will get the trust level needed to lay out your vision in detail. Good luck with your idea.
