I think it's fantastic when a hobbyist uses their skills to solve a real world problem in their current job. I mean, it's one thing to create a spreadsheet, but an app (of course I don't have any idea what it does) that someone is willing to pay you for is something else. Congrats! Thumbs Up | :thumbsup: Now you have some decisions to make. Of course it all depends on the money.

If you have any intentions of making money on this app you need to:
0: form an llc - this protects you from personal liability should something go terribly wrong
1: insure your llc for double protection, specifically errors and omissions
2: keep control of your source code!
3: create a EULA - there are samples all over the place. Find one you like and change the names.

As for what to charge, some money up front should be expected, but imho an annual contract is the way to go...recurring revenue are an incentive for you to maintain and improve the app.

Also be prepared for them to ask for exclusive rights. (hint: this is your leverage in the deal) Good luck! Smile | :)
