Discuss with a friend or family member what would make a good app. What makes the best apps so popular? (Angry Bird, Paper Toss or NYTimes). Write up your findings.
Write down as many different ideas as you can, either a brief description or a name. Sketch up a couple ideas to support your descriptions.
Conduct research using Android Market or iTunes to see if anything already exists to make sure that you’re not copying. If you are stuck for ideas spend a few minutes looking at what is available and hopefully you will get some inspiration.
