This is a great entry on the Pastry Box about “the idea person”. You know the person thinks the idea for the app is all that matters and actually means something.
There is no such thing as a quick little app. All apps take a long time. Also, never say this to a designer or developer. Let them say it to you. Remember that you don’t know what you’re talking about and they do.
I know a lot of you do freelance on the side and as you know it’s important to make sure the client understands what all is involved.
