Terribly sorry if this is in the wrong StackExchange site, but it looked closest to my question.
I have an idea or two floating around in my programmer's brain for mobile apps on Android or iOS. Thing is, I can't spend months programming it after my day job just to see someone else go to market first. In the same vein, I don't want to dump tens of thousands of dollars to pay someone to do it outright. I know that in other industries, you can often get paid by offering up the idea as intellectual property, allowing another company to do the work while you collect royalty checks for coming up with the idea in the first place, assuming the developing company went ahead with it and it became successful.
Does such a thing exist in the mobile application development world? If so, any recommendations for trustworthy companies? Let's assume that it actually IS a decent idea, is well vetted out and planned, and does not exist in the marketplace yet.
