Nokia planning HERE apps for iOS and Android according to job postings
According to a report published on Sunday, Nokia could be looking at offering native iOS and Android HERE mapping applications. This is based on a pair of job postings for iOS and Android software engineers found on LinkedIn. One opening is for an iOS/Android developer for a team that produces industry leading mobile SDKs. The person for this opening should have experience "shipping" one or more iOS or Android apps in the App Store or Google Play Store.

The second opening is for an Android  Mobile App Developer for HERE crowd mapping. This positions requires the person getting the job to meet with developers, product managers and work across the entire life cycle of an app: concept, design, build, deploy, test, release to app stores and support. The job also requires one to keep up to date on the new mobile technologies. The reference to crowd mapping indicates an app similar to Waze, that would use reports from users to help determine the fastest traffic routes to a specific location.

In case you didn't know, HERE is one of the divisions that remains in Finland, now that Microsoft has closed the acquisition to purchase Nokia Devices and Services. It looks like Nokia is going to become very aggressive in an industry where it is considered to be one of the best mobile mapping application providers.
