Apple has reportedly hired the iOS developer behind the popular MobileNotifier app for jailbroken iPhone devices.
The MobileNotifier is generally regarded as a huge improvement over Apple’s existing notifier for the iPhone and Apple seems to have realised that.
Apple, which is expected to announce the iOS 5 platform today, has hired Peter Hajas to improve the notification feature on the upcoming platform, The Redmond Pie (opens in new tab) reports.
In a blog post (opens in new tab)on his website, Hajas announced that he is taking a break from working on MobileNotifier and other products for the time being.
“I can't say why, but it's worth it. Trust me. If you look around hard enough, you'll probably figure it out,” he said. Although he does not mention his new employer, some investigative work by The Redmond Pie revealed a tweet sent by Hajas in which he says that he will be going to California to work for a ‘fruit’ company.
Meanwhile, the reporters over at Mobile Crunch (opens in new tab) dug up Hajas’s Facebook page where he has listed himself as an intern at Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino. Updating Apple's notification system in time for today's preview doesn't seem possible, but hopefully iOS 5 will show Hajas's contribution once it is officially released.
