Hi to all.

I have a few ideas for apps that I feel will be profitable.

I need to find someone who is willing to do meet and discuss if this is feasible or not. This person would be able to code across platforms like Android, Apple and web based.

Once that is done I would like to start up a company that will assist others developing apps. Many ideas go undeveloped because most cannot afford to take the development to the next level. 

Is there anyone out there that is interested in getting involved?

Suggest you go to startup weekend . They will teach you how to make your idea into a business, if possible. You will also get to meet a bunch of devs who are interested in working at a startup :)

Next auckland one is November. I'll probably be there. (I'm not a dev though)

Be prepared for the fact that your idea is probably either terrible, or been done better already. That is the case for 99% of amazing ideas people have.

Thanks I will definitely look into this.

One of my strengths is taking something and finding ways of doing it better. I agree there are many apps out there, but most of them are lacking in some way, mostly usability. You need to have an edge. The funny thing is some really strange apps have made some money and some really good ones haven't. So many factors are involved. 

But if you don't try you will never know.
