Apple hires jailbreak dev to work on iOS notifications?

Apple may have hired Peter Hajas, the developer behind the jailbreak replacement notification system Mobile Notifier, to work on iOS’ notification system. Redmond Pie reports that Hajas indicated in a recent Twitter update that he would soon be going to work for a “fruit” company in California. In a follow-up blog post, Hajas wrote that we couldn’t say why he was stepping away from app development, but that “it’s worth it,” adding that “if you look around hard enough, you’ll probably figure it out” before finishing the the line “stay hungry and stay foolish,” a reference to the phrase Apple CEO Steve Jobs used to close out his 2005 Stanford University Commencement speech.

I’ve long thought that Apple would implement notifications similar to the way Hajas created them; but this was kinda unexpected for me.

Peter Hajas is a genius. I really love what he did for notifications in iOS. Mobile Notifier has had been downloaded like 230,000 times, so I would say that I am not alone in my thinking. Great for Peter, I wonder how he felt when he was approached by Apple. If it were me, I would feel like I had just received my golden ticket (that’s from Charley and the Chocolate Factory for you youngsters out there).
