I have an idea for an app that could be used all around the world.
Basically, after downloading the app, the user will be connected with people offering a certain service all around the world. The user can choose who they trust, best price and turn around time for the service. They will pay for the service through the app and only once the job is done, the service provider gets paid via the app.
I would need features like:
User login and profile creation page.
Payment for service page.( Link a bank account to the app.)
Posting a service function.
Notifications for service seekers.
These features will be good for the startup of the app.( Possibly more after chatting to the correct team.) In future I would like to add location and review of service features.
I have the idea and I can market the app. I am not a developer at all.
I would like to know:
How my idea is protected from possible copying or theft?
How much this would possibly cost to develop to a point where I can market it through google play and and Apple stores.
Looking forward to meeting the correct team.
