    Hi ya'll, I'm working on an app at the moment and I'd like to know if it's possible to patent my idea? If so, how do I go about it? Thanks for your time.

    You dont patent an "idea." You patent a "method" or "process." For example, google couldn't patent Android, but the were able to patent the method of implementing their face unlock technology. Furthermore, I hope you realize that patenting is not expensive. Even the simplest software patent can hold a price tag with 4-5 digits.

    Thanks, I've since googled a little on IP so I'm certainly realizing that it's more a lot more complex than I thought it would be.
