I know i can go to companies to have my app idea put into reality and im fairly certain the cost ccan range from 100,000 and up but not much more than a few hundred thousand.

What are yearly operating costs ?

Does the company that I initially paid maintain it for the operating costs?

Would i need any employees?

Would i need servers?

I know I could charge a small fee ($1.99. Or $2.99 etc) for purchase of the app so that would be some revenue building.

How much initial capital should I have to get this app up and running.

And then there is marketing it....

This is the only question we can answer. The answer is no.

For the rest, it's impossible to give you an answer without additional information about your app idea. Your best bet is to get someone who is familiar with tech business operations and have them sign an NDA. Then ask them these questions.

There's a lot of us here that are familiar with it. The point is that without the details of the actual idea, it's impossible to answer your questions. Some ideas can be built in a garage with a few people, others need quite a bit more. Which is why I suggested your find someone you are willing to sign an NDA with.

The alternative is to type of the idea here so we can better help you. Good luck!

Actually it’s not as simple as no - some apps hitting a database really need a back end server.

I think this is a fair assessment. If you plan on having the scale of, say, netflix, with petabytes of data being accessed at any given moment, you will need servers. Otherwise, you simply don't. As with the previous poster, you need to know the idea to really answer these questions.

If you can’t give away the specific idea you will need to provide a better general idea. Change the vertical industry or user base.

But without any more information it’s impossible to provide any more guidance.
