Apple plans to enhance iPhone and iPad apps on iCloud in 2012

According to a recent job posting on Apple’s corporate Web site, the company is reportedly planning to expand its number of iCloud-based applications for iPhone and iPad.

The post, which was discovered by AppleInsider, reveals that Apple is looking for “proactive, creative-minded engineers to build the next generation of cocoa-based client applications that integrate tightly with a set of cloud based services.”

Candidates for the job must have a bachelor of science in computer science with 5 or more years of experience, strong object-oriented programming and design skills, as well as experience with Cocoa and the iPhone software development kit.

The iCloud was launched in October, as a substitution for Apple’s previous MobileMe and it includes services such as Find My iPhone, Mail and Contacts, Documents in the Cloud, iTunes in the Cloud and others.
