I have more ideas than time, so i want to share these ideas for apps with the community.

SQUAD: you get connected to five random people based on your interests. you can choose to keep chatting or to leave. each time the room adds people to make up for those that left until you decide to vote to become a "squad" and you will have a permanent private chat for the final 5 that can audition new membersto your growing online group.

SWIPE APP: tinder based shopping. load cash into the account as a credit, and show them categories of items to swipe left or right on. based on what they have in their account, it shows them stuff they can instantly buy with a swipe.

NAMEWAR: based on what your name is, find out the most popular people with your name and age brackets, and fields of study to compare your life progress and to connect in new ways.

Birthday app: similar to namewar but for birthdays, letting you connect with a person that shares your birthday for one day to connect and learn about each others lives on a 1-1 chat.

Mavencard: The digital yelp/bbb for freelancers and remote workers. It would show they work history,testimonials imported from all marketplace sites, behance and dribble portfolios, github,resumes, social media accounts.

basically its your Maven Card. your passport to better credibility and jobs.

HOMELY: a machine learning assistant that learns your home preferences and acts as your realtor to find you houses and apts to rent or buy.

I have plenty more.......is there a career path for this sort of thing?

      depends on what you mean by 'make it.' MVP could probably be done in a weekend but making it production usable could take a few weeks to iron out bugs.

    • How much $ would be required to make it production usable?

      1 month of work = ~20k min. could pobably get it done for 5k if you used some offshore eng firm. but would not recommend unless you are going to start from scratch later on

      I can see squad being a really interesting education/work platform networking around skills and passions.
      make it. introduce it to companies as an internal networking tool (ie. big companies like Amazon etc). watch it break out of that into the real world once you've hit a tipping point of dau.

    some of them I have heard of at least a couple startups doing similar things.

    ideas aren't worth much. It's all about execution

    if you believe in one, then you should throw everything you got at it. statistically you will have ~10% chance of getting to series A.

    if you really believe in it, then the 10% is all you need.

    Homely has already been developed here in Utah. And ironically it's called Homie!

    I'd say maybe. if you can execute on making one of these happen, yes. Ideas are easy. Getting the details figured out and executing are much harder and the difference between a dreamer and a doer.
