The truth is that good ideas are a dime a dozen, the real work is in implementation. That applies to almost everything, from writing novels to starting businesses.
Having gotten that out of the way, if you really want to pursue your idea you need to get rid of the "I don't have time" mentality; that will not cut it. You are the one with the vision, you can't hire someone to have it for you. You can on the other hand find someone to partner with, but that doesn't mean tossing your idea over the fence and walking away untill it is done.
If it were me, I would start by developing a plan for the APP (probably a series of Powerpoint slides) demonstrating what the APP does, its intended market and any other particulars, as well as mockups of screen visuals.
This will serve several purposes:
1) It will refine the project in your mind
2) It will help in recruiting a partner
3) It will serve as a roadmap for the project
BTW I am not a developer, but have managed and sold many engineering projects through the years, so take the above FWIW.
Thanks for your response Razor! Actually I am looking for a partner. True, I have the vision, but with a day job it is difficult to do it myself. And also, a professional that makes Apps can work more efficiently than I can since they already have the knowledge and experience.
I believe there is a need for the App I want to create since I have not seen one like it yet. And it is for a particular niche: Math Teachers. I am one myself. I do not want to give too much away...lol
A bit off the subject, is there a mock-up app you recommend? I want to create one for starters.
