    i m 17 years old and I have come up with an app idea and the design of it. I want to create a working prototype and I have no idea how to do this. Which software s do I use? Or do I need a specialist to do this for me, if so, who?

    Well, it's a very vague question that you have asked. But, I'll try my best to answer it.

    1) Do you have any prior knowledge of Programming?
    1.1) If yes, then do you know either Java(for android), objective C or Swift(for IOS)?
    1.1.1) if yes again(you are already quiet ahead). Try to learn how to develop an app in these platforms, for the begining may be just take one.
    1.1.2) If no, well you might want to learn them and figure it out. Or as you said find a person who knows this.
    1.2) If no, well then
    1.2.1) if you are willing to learn then go ahead and start learning Android and Java development for Android; others stated above for IOS.
    1.2.2) If no, go and find a person just like in case 1.1.2...

    That covers the major things that you can do. The worst case thing is to put the idea for a later day(which I wouldn't ask you to do). Hope these things help you out.

    What seekbigger said. But seriously, apps don't just pop out of the sky. You need to think about which platform you want your app to be on and take it from there. I'd recommend Android, because the SDK is free. This video is a guide to installing the SDK and beginning to create your first app. If you get stuck on an idea, try reading up on the Java language, or ask on a programming forum. You could always pay someone to do it, but that could be expensive and you could learn to do it yourself instead. Hope this helps you

    If you're only wanting to design prototypes and not actually get in and do some programming I'd highly recommend Justinmind's prototype software: http://www.justinmind.com/

    I've used that to do a couple of application mock ups in the past.
