Would you want to use a software for left handed people to become right handed?

I have a business idea for an app that helps people become ambidextrous through simple and bite sized lessons. Please let me know what you think of the idea and if you would use it.

The idea is an App where people who are right handed can learn to be left handed and people who are left handed can learn to be right handed with simple bite sized lessons that start from writing simple letters & numbers to writing large sentences and paragraphs. People can customize the length of time they want to practice for per day (5 mins, 15 mins, 30 mins). There will also be tons of practice available for people to learn after they are done with the lessons or if they want to practice more of a specific thing. In a way the layout and style would be similar to Duolingo. I think the app would do well because a lot of people want to be able to write with the other hand they are naturally better with but are not motivated enough or don’t have time to practice. The app would remind the user daily to practice and lessons would already be created for the user to guide them slowly to become ambidextrous. Please let me know what you think of this idea and feedback would be appreciated.

This idea's problems

First, you should check originality. A simple google would find that there are already several such APPs on the APP stores. But that is only the minor problem. You are using a wrong approach - trying to ask everyone in the ocean with a message in the bottle approach and see if anyone would 'like". This is missing the target audience, the basic incentive for purchasing, the demo, and the marketing approach. This is definitely an OK idea, but you need to (1) just do it; (2) make it well enough and try to advertise to people. What is the target audience and what is the value? just for fun? why should they pay you? how many copies can you sell? how do you deal with copy cats?
