An intriguing job listing suggests that Apple could be planning to roll out Apple Maps further, taking it to the web.
In other words, it seems as though Apple wants a web version of its popular app, presumably to compete with Google.
The upshot of this is that we could soon be browsing Apple Maps on Android and Windows phone devices - as well as Windows PC as a web-based app. The advert specifically calls for coders who have a "solid understanding of the performance and compatibility issues that arise when delivering a cross-platform web solution".
Apple Maps received much criticism when it launched in 2012, because it was "really terrible" (source of that quote: me). Despite Apple's hubris and some slick presentation, the app didn't have the underlying accuracy or detail of Google's more reliable product. There have been improvements since - but Apple seems to have realised that if it really wants to compete on Maps, it needs to compete on all fronts.
If you're interested in applying, the job is a full-time 40 hours per week deal, and is based in Santa Clara Valley, California - which Apple Maps tells me is just off the coast of Paraguay. [Twitter]
