is an iPhone App Non Disclosure Agreement
(NDA) and Do I Need One?
An NDA, or non disclosure agreement,
is a legal and binding document that protects
your idea or your "intellectual property".
If you are concerned that your idea may
be taken by an iPhone developer
you speak with, then you'll want to get
an written NDA in place before disclosing
any specific details of your idea.
All iPhone Developers in the iPhoneAppQuotes.com
National Network are accustom to signing
NDA's and most should not have a problem
executing one prior to speaking about your
project. Becoming familiar with a non disclosure
agreement sends a signal to the iPhone
developer that you are serious about moving
forward with your project, as well as protecting
While executing a NDA is generally good
practice, it sometimes
may not be
necessary. For example, you can probably
speak at a high level with iPhone developers
about functionality - "this app will
connect to an external database, use GPS,
mapping, calls to web files and utilize
some 3.0 functionality like push notifications,
will be a paid app". Speaking in terms
of functionality, you haven't given away
anything, yet you are giving the iPhone
developer a good idea of what to expect.
