iPhone App Ideas

Whenever I introduce myself to someone saying I'm an iOS developer, they immediately feel the urge to tell me they're amazing, never heard before, guaranteed money making iphone app ideas.
I don't mean to be cliché but, most of the times, they are not worth the time. (Not) surprisingly, these people are always looking to partner on their iphone app idea business and share revenue.
If you're truly convinced you have a solid iphone app idea, why wouldn't you pursue it and invest what's necessary to make 10x or 100x? As you'd say in Italy, you're cutting your own legs.

iphone-app-ideasI've talked extensively about why I will not "steal" other people's iphone app ideas (if there is such a thing), the reason is simple: ideas aren't worth anything alone, it's execution that counts.
In addition to that, I already have, literally, pages of iphone app ideas that I'd want to develop and put on the market, that I believe in but do not have time for meaning they'd take too long to pay back for the time they took away from other paid projects.

What surprised me, however, is that there are many threads on Quora or even entire websites, dedicated to providing and gathering iphone app ideas. I assume this means that people are looking for iphone app ideas and don't know what to build next?
I love solving problems with iphone apps. What I do was a passion way before it became a job. With all this in mind, I'm going to share some of my iphone app ideas that hopefully someone will like and be willing to put the effort to put them on the App Store.
Alternatively, you might see this as an investment opportunity and pay me to develop them (then they are yours, including generated revenue).
