dozingncoding505122d"I'm sorry, I really don't have time, your idea sounds great, maybe you should ask X" (blame shifting in another friend you don't get allong with that well)
EngineerCoding764122dIt takes a lot of time to develop an app, it doesn't magically appear out of nothing. I'm not interested enough to commit to that
myss3441122dTell them yeah, you should learn "this, this and this" technology and I might help you make it.

LilDev183121dI usually dodge these with "You know I have a fulltime job right. Besides that even if we have the application it wont sell itself and it will take a lot more to grow a product." .
Then I proceed explaining how the company I work at had a great idea, built the application but failed to market and sell. In the meanwhile competition gained the advantage on us forcing us to quit.
