Search engine giant Google, has started a new ad campaign that’s asking iOS developers to go work for them. They want to improve the user experience of their apps on iOS devices. Recently, the company released Google Maps for iOS, which was an instant hit among iOS uses.
9to5Mac reported seeing this ad running on their website, asking iOS devs to ‘do cool things that matter’. By cool things, Google means, improvement of their existing iOS apps such as YouTube, Google Maps, Chrome, Search, Gmail etc. It turns out, they have their own iOS app development team, who work hard and actually build the apps themselves. Ever since Apple decided to cut down on Google made apps, they’ve wanted to be more active on the iOS platform.
Google’s apps such as Chrome and Google Maps are, in a lot of ways, much better than Apple’s variants. They now want more iOS developers to make them iOS apps even better. Check out the video below:
Clicking on the ad takes you to a page that explains what the ‘Do Cool Things That Matter’ is all about. It also lists job offerings to be a part of the iOS app dev team. Here’s what it says:
It’s fun. People have misconception that we just copy and paste existing Google products to the iOS platform. But we have a lot of freedom and try to innovate beyond anything that Google’s done so far. We are always working on ideas to push the envelope on mobile search, and we collaborate closely with Google Web Search engineers to implement new features.
