    Ok so I had an idea for an app to fix an unconscionably irresponsible decision the Google devs have made with maps navigation on android. I really think it could have the potential to make money IF it worked and word got out about it. The idea is so simple yet so elegant I'm surprised no one has done it yet. Problem is I have no programming experience so I don't even know where to begin. I do however have a talent for understanding and learning quickly. Can anyone suggest some steps I could take or some tools I could download that would get me started?

    First you have to learn programming. Start with Algorithms and Data Structures the best programming course ever written. (No, I didn't write it - the man who did is more than just a genius.)

    That's just to get started.
