Apple has hired iPhone hacker, Peter Hajas, presumably for his work on MobileNotifier, a refreshing update to the painfully annoying notification system iOS currently offers.
Hajas confirmed his new gig at Apple via Twitter, which has since been deleted:
@brittaahh I’m glad you like it! I’ll see what I can do 🙂 I will be back for a few weeks, then I’m off to work in CA at a “fruit” company.
Apparently he “loves working and living in California” since his relationship with Apple started about a month ago.
MobileNotifier has a popover style alert that allows the user to continue phone interaction, unlike the current state of affairs. It also has an “alerts dashboard” for management of all notifications. This is a big improvement which allows the user to “park” notifications to address later.
