Most of the iPhone postings I see in Toronto fall into one of two categories:
- Sketchy: someone wants to do something on the iPhone and isn’t at all clear if they have a job, a partnership, or if they’re just harvesting emails for spam. Too short and lacking in any detail that makes it feel real.
- Partnership: someone would like you to do all the heavy lifting in return for a percentage of the profit. Often, it’s not clear what the poster is bringing to the relationship. Most of the time, I’d say if coding for free in return for some of the profit interests you, you’d be better off setting out on your own, or with people you know and trust, rather than some dude on Craigslist.
This posting, on the other hand, is pretty low on detail, but carries some vague verisimilitude with respect to a job posting. It’s possible that there’s someone on the other end who actually wants to hire you and pay you a salary. There’s nowhere near enough detail to be sure, bu t it’s still a step up from most. There’s still not enough for a full writeup, but if you’ve got iPhone experience and you’d like to move into an iPhone-related employment, this might be worth further investigation.
