The best place to start is Google. You’d be surprised to learn that many people with a great idea don’t do their homework on what the market and the competition look like. Start by going to the App Store, Google Play Store, Yahoo, and Bing to find out whether or not the market has a lot of players. This will provide you with an idea of whether or not you have a chance in the market. Once you have a better understanding of what’s out there, you can then see how to position and differentiate yourself. Before starting to software development that will cost upwards of tens of thousands of dollars, try to do it for free. This way, you can see if you can validate whether or not it’s a good idea. For instance, if your idea is to create an app that locates all cafes with Wifi, you should start by tracking all the locations down yourself, adding them into a spreadsheet, putting them on the map and social media, and building a free or cheap website and app to see if you can gain traction. You have to figure out if this is something people would be interested in.
