Napster hiring for iPhone, Mac apps?

Napster Wants iPhone App

Napster is likely to be hiring for possible iPhone and Mac OS X apps based on a job listing at Craigslist. The Los Angeles software engineer position would require both experience with OS X iPhone elements, such as Cocoa Touch, as well as Mac OS X-specific features. What projects the recruit would work on are unclear, but Napster says part of its goal would be to have its products "work more effectively and natively" in Mac OS X.

Napster has recently taken steps to make its service more platform-independent and just last month introduced a hybrid streaming and MP3 subscription that lets both Macs and Windows PCs stream unlimited music online as well as keep five unprotected songs each month. None of these would require a Mac developer as-is; possibilities include a Mac app to sync downloads, an iPhone app to stream music, or both. [via Gizmodo]
