Application for halfbakers, that collects data about place(home, work, bathroom, etc), time(morning, day, night), and many other circumstances, where idea was created. This data could be used for understanding the nature of idea creation, and to achieve a new level of producing ideas.

       "So, after crunching the numbers, it turns out that the best place to have an idea is equidistant between a bedroom, a bar and Cape Verde, whilst drinking a mohito with a splash of coffee and spirulina, having just eaten a MacDonald's with a cabernet sauvignon and a side of spinach."

       A majority of mine have happened while driving.   

       hmmmm, maybe it's every time I cross a Ley line or something...   

       ^Maybe the shallow subconscious gets to look at the global mullings because the rote subconscious is doing all the heavy lift while driving.

       Would the app help you remember what the idea was in the first place?

       Maybe, first glimpse may be the most visionary end exciting. A sense of fuzziness at the same time gives a sense of depth.

       Ideas have a lot of parameters, like methods of creating: combinations of abstractions, solutions for deep self problems, looking through the prism of theory, semiotics, interpretation and translating something into the language of other thing, increasing of perseption, etc

       A majority of mine have happened in extreme situations, or in different alternative states of mind...

       Solution(idea) depends on how the question is asked, so to change idea you have to deformate a question. Researching of minds of thinkers, and how ideas were produced is inspiring topic. "An essay on the psychology of invention in the mathematical field" by Jacques Hadamard is a great book.
