Mobile Safari Developer Tells His Story

The original Maps application was developed in a two-week marathon session leading up to the original iPhone introduction at the Macworld Expo in 2007. Jobs decided near the last minute that the iPhone needed the app, so Tolmasky’s teammate Chris Blumenberg was told to get it working. “That was the kind of effect Steve could have on you,” said Tolmasky. “This is important, this needs to happen, and you do it.”
