App requests from users

Hello. I am proposing a few feature.

problem: user can see a proprietary app in app stores and can’t really find an foss alternative. Then user has no option other than using that proprietary app.

solution: If there is a place user can request app with certain features just like app in app stores. and when a developer did see this request and build an app. this user will be notified about this newly built app.

all these app requests can be shown somewhere in a website so that devs can see them.

Please let me know , if something like this already exists or anything need to be altered

Do you really think there are developers somewhere sitting and waiting for your request? Not entirely impossible, but usually free software is made by enthusiasts because they need this software themselves or companies because of their business needs.

Newbie developers sometimes request ideas for a new app, but even if they make it, you probably won’t like the result.
