I need to know the right way to take my groundbreaking software concept from idea to reality.

I have an incredible idea (lets assume it is groundbreaking for the sake of this question). The idea is in the realm of personal budgeting and there is nothing like it.
I want to turn my idea into a simple and elegant iphone app and start an "on the side company" with the goal of it becoming a full time venture.
So that said, I am an idea person and have a vision but need (obviously) a programmer.
What should I do guys? My thoughts were to ideally find a programmer and make him/her a "co-founder" and 50/50 partner.
I know once I shared my idea and vision I could get any person on board with me but where do I find the talent? Craigslist?
Where can I get exposure to devs?
Or is that the wrong way to go?
I do not think this is a good idea but since I have this earthshattering concept and idea - should I approach an already established company with it (any ideas on one that would not steal it and boot me if so?)? One that is already in the related industry?
Assuming that whoever hears this idea will love it, what is the best path to take? And if the first, where can I find devs / get exposure to them so I can present this idea!!
