The App Incubator is the original iPhone app that gives anybody with a great app idea a shot at getting it made. If your app idea can deliver the goods, the App Incubator will cover the rest and give you a handsome share of the profits.


Using the simple & straightforward interface, the App Incubator will walk you through every step of the submission process. This makes it easy to flesh out the details so you can transform any rough idea into a refined model. It’s quick, effortless and most importantly, safe.

Once your idea is submitted into the Incubator, the next step is for us to review it. Please understand that we receive thousands of submissions every week, so it could take us some time before we can review your idea.
If we feel the idea has potential—and it meets our app quality standards—we will design, develop and market it, and share the profits of every download with you.

Best of all, you don’t pay a single cent. Pretty sweet, eh?

To submit your idea, briefly describe the app and its target audience. After that, you can choose to describe your app according to five factors: originality, functionality, simplicity, profit potential and fun. Filling this out will help us make our decision, so try to be as thorough as you can.

You can also submit your ideas via our website. We offer a free downloadable storyboard template to help visualize your idea. Don’t worry if drawing isn’t your strength—we just want to get an idea of how you see the app working :-)

Your submissions are editable, so making a change to your idea or adding something new is easy. If you decide to withdraw your submission, and we have not already begun to build it, send us an e-mail and we will be happy to do so.


• You do not have to pay any money to submit your ideas.
• You do not have to pay for any design, development or marketing.
• We run updates & maintenance free of charge.
• We handle Apple relations for you.
• If you would like to remove your idea from the Incubator, just send us an e-mail requesting the rights back.
• As long as your app is on the App Store, and sales have passed the break-even point, you get 25% of every download. *

Customer Reviews


So I have a bunch of good, original ideas, ya know? They don't exist on the app store yet and I would love to see them there. But what do I get?
Usually, "Cost outweighs potential".
Or, "Violates Development Guidelines".
And I am really frustrated. Then the last one I submitted (2 years ago) still says, "Waiting for review". How the #@$(! does it take this long? My first ideas literally took 3 days. My last one is still waiting after two years.
And can't we even have an explanation of WHY it "Violates Development Guidelines" or WHY the "Cost Outweighs Potential"???? Is it really that hard to have at least DECENT customer service?!?
This stupid app is about to go...
Good-bye, stupid app.
Good-bye, idiotic developers.

Awesome app!!!!!

Awesome app!!!!! Guys this app is toatally worth your time. I just submitted sn app idea on June 24 and still waiting, but im toatally okay with because because there are millinons of other apps in the world and it may take days,months, or even years to be revied , so all your haters out tgete chill your balls down!

Bad Service

Ok, I get the fact you receive a bunch of ideas. But if that is the nature of your business, don't you think you would benefit more by speedy customer service. Instead, you make us feel like you are running a scam. It should not take two or more months to review an idea. If that's the case, hire some more people because you are loosing good ideas. Or that's what you are banking in. People getting tired of waiting and forgetting they submitted anything to you. Then you just steal the idea. Come on already. Hurry up and fix this.
