Cyanogen CEO Refutes 'pivoting To Apps' Reports, Says we Are An OS CompanyBy cheatmaster 10:37 Wed, 04 Aug 2021 Comments
Just days after there were reports that alternative Android Operating System (OS) developer Cyanogen has laid off about a fifth of its workforce and is planning to create a shift towards app development, CEO Kirt McMaster has refuted the reports, especially the app development part.
Here's what he assumed in a tweet:
Cyanogen NOT pivoting to apps. We are an Operating System (OS) company and our mission of creating an OPEN ANDROID stands. FALSE reporting was outstanding.— Kirt McMaster (@cyanogenone) July 25, 2016
As for lay offs, he confirmed the news this past weekend, although there was no word on the number of employees that have been let go.
really sad we had to let go of some wonderful folks this week. startups and disruption are brutal.— Kirt McMaster (@cyanogenone) July 23, 2016
Co-founder Steve Kondik also tried to clear the air. "CyanogenMod isn’t going anywhere, nor has Cyanogen Inc. discontinued it’s efforts towards the goal of bringing it to a larger audience," he assumed in a blog post.
"Cyanogen Inc (including myself) will still be sponsoring the project and will continue to have an active role in it’s development. Contrary to popular belief, we are not 'pivoting to apps' nor are we shelving CM," he added.
