Hi, I'm 15 and I'm a android app devolper. I know this is a forum for game development but hey its java.

The idea is you have this app which allows you to create your own business card within the app. If you want to add other peoples business cards you can transfer your business cards via NFC. You could then see all the business cards you have and can email, phone or add to your contacts via the app. If you are intrested email me at tobydrane@gmail.com and say what you can bring to the team (well me)

To avoid this thread collapsing like all the other similar ones, you should make sure you show what you can bring to the team. ('ideas' or 'management' do not count)

Well I am just looking for a little help. I have a tiny skill in programming and can help with that but also have the developers license and admob account. I can take care of the manaent and promotion of the app.

But thanks for trying to not make it fall through

Aha thanks I wonder about that but surely I can use this as proof that it is my idea.

So basically, you have an idea, and you want to manage a team to make it happen then?

May I suggest posting up some work you may of previously done Pointing Just shows what you're capable of and people can get a generally idea of what could be involved. The best of luck!

Well yes and no. I will program it as-well and all im looking for is someone who knows a bit about android development and Java - I think I am in the right place. I haven't got a budget but thats the fun, trying to make it big from nothing. *cough* Nick D’Aloisio *cough*. I have a bit of knowledge and will help, but the only proper app I have released was a torch. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.idkstudios.toby.torch

You seem like a nice guy or gal, so can I offer some advice based on my limited experience?

You're approaching this from the wrong direction.

You say you've got some development experience, and that's awesome. Use that. You've already taken an Android app to market, so you've got a lot of the hard work done.

Instead of trying to look for a developer to work for you (more on that in a second), take a deeper dive into the development yourself. Break your entire project down into much smaller individual pieces. What's the absolute smallest, very next thing you know you need to do? Figure out how to do that, then do it. Make a bunch of tiny example programs that just do one thing, and when you get stuck, post that example project here, and we can help you along.

Because what you're looking for doesn't really come cheap. You either want a tutor or an employee. I know you think you're just looking for somebody to have fun and program with, but that's not really how any of this works. You're either not going to get any takers, or you're only going to get people who make the whole thing more difficult.

Any developer who can do the things you're talking about probably has his or her own personal (or professional) project that they're working on. They probably aren't going to stop and try to take on your vision as well. We don't have enough time for our own ideas, let alone everybody who emails us with an idea for an app.

Instead, you'll have to build a prototype. Get the basics in place. When you have something up and running and can show people, then you might attract other people who want to work with you. Maybe.

Ideas are cheap. Managers are cheap. People looking for a team are usually in over their head. The best thing you can do for your project is to get your hands dirty and just start working on it.

Here's a list of similar threads that I got from putting the word "team" in the forum's search box. I'm sure I could find more. Notice how many of them went anywhere.

I'm not trying to discourage you. Quite the opposite, in fact. The best thing you can do is just get to work. Post updates. Post questions. But looking for a team is one of nails in the coffin that seem to doom novice projects like this. Good luck.

Yeah okay thanks for that I was going to carry on the development whilst I wait, but hey lets go for it.

One quick question I want to have a login screen that remembers your username and password on the internet. I also want it so that if you log on from another phone it remembers all your information so like details of your business card. What would I use to do this.

You might start by posting to the Work-In-Progress Board whenever you have something for us to check out.

Well, you're talking about a database here. That's an entire field in and of itself, and it can get pretty complicated. You might start out by learning some basic SQL (W3 Schools is a great place to start), and then move up to things like JDBC.

That doesn't count at all.
I don't want to be rude but nobody cares about it as the law doesn't protect ideas. Some people believe that ideas are protected but no, they aren't.
Indeed not even patents are really protected, big companies can easily steal your ideas because you don't have the money for a lawsuit.
Nevertheless only stupid people don't share their knowledge and asking for advice or help will be worth the risk because noone will clone an idea that isn't already hyped Smiley

I appreciate the op. Kev, as per usual had dimmed in on this with the exact same (good) advice he gives every other thread like this.

The difference? The op didn't go full asshole and throw it back in his face.
