Apple achizitioneaza Embark pentru a ii implementa tehnologiile in Apple Maps

  Embark este un startup al Sillicon Valley pe care Apple l-a achizitionat recent, compania din Cupertino intentionand sa-i implementeze tehnologiile direct in serviciul Apple Maps. Cei de la Embark au dezvoltat o aplicatie care contine informatii detaliate despre rutele de transport public din orasele americane, iar Apple are nevoie de tehnologia din spatele sau. Cei de la Embark au fost finantati inclusiv de catre BMW in luna noiembrie a anului trecut, in acel moment aplicatia pentru iOS avand jumatate de milion de utilizatori.

Apple Inc. keeps snapping up mapping companies. The latest: Embark Inc., a small Silicon Valley upstart that builds free transit apps to help smartphone users navigate public transportation. We don’t know how much Apple paid for the several-person team it acquired very recently. But we heard from people knowledgeable about the deal that the company plans to directly integrate Embark’s technology into Apple Maps. Embark, founded in 2011, builds apps for mobile devices powered by Android and Apple’s iOS with information about transit systems in about half a dozen U.S. cities such as New York, San Francisco and Chicago.

  Desi deocamdata Apple Maps este inutila in ceea ce priveste oferirea de informatii despre tranportul public din Romania, poate peste 10 ani sistemul ne va putea spune cand pleaca/ajung trenurile si cine mai stie ce.
