FaceTime and iMessage are two of the most popular features of the iDevice’s, but they are quite simple, it works and that’s all. In market there is a bunch of related services and applications that provides much more features than iOS stock apps such as WhatsApp Messenger.
The ads states:
“You will be responsible for implementing new features to our existing FaceTime and iMessage applications as well as developing complex applications from top to bottom (user interface design to design and implementation of supporting frameworks)”
Apple is looking to significantly improve FaceTime and iMessage for the release of its next mobile operating system iOS 7. Both applications are extremely popular among users iOS, and for this reason Apple wants to bring them to a higher level.
Surely there is considerable scope for improvement, especially if we consider FaceTime.

The company is expected to unveil iOS 7 during the WWDC in June, and only then we will know all the features implemented.
