Apple’s Broken Promise, aka Siri, has a lot of problems, and Apple is trying to fix them. There are two new job openings for iOS software engineers to work with Siri’s user interface team:
We are looking for an engineer to join the team that implements the UI for Siri. You will primarily be responsible for implementing the conversation view and its many different actions. This includes defining a system that enables a dialog to appear intuitive, a task that involves many subtle UI behaviours in a dynamic, complex system. You will have several clients of your code, so the ability to formulate and support a clear API is needed.
It’s good to know that they are actively searching to fix Siri. It’s still not good that they released this incomplete piece of software as a major feature in a final product, even with the “beta” tag. [Apple and Apple via 9to5Mac]
