Cyanogen Inc. dismisses a quarter of its staff




Cyanogen Inc., the developer of the famous Android ROM CyanogenMod, performs a layoff by. It would be 30 out of 136 employees. Possibly the startup’s attention in the future focus on the development of applications.

The news Friday initially came out over the sources of Android Police and then was also confirmed across from Re / code. The layoffs would occur with offices in Seattle, Palo Alto, as well as smaller offices in Lisbon and India. The latter two could possibly be fully closed. Many of the cases were dismissed on the open source side of the project. Possible follow further redundancies in the near future.

One of the sources of Android Police speaks even that the company would shift its focus to steer development to app development. However, this is at the moment not sure. The company has long been working to develop an app package to serve as a substitute for similar counterparts from Google. Think of your own email app and a dialer.

The company took last year an investment in order to compete with Google in 73 million. It is even supported by, among others Microsoft. The problem of CyanogenMod will not be possible due to lack of popularity of the open-ROM. Cyanogen Inc. earn money to his version of the Google operating system to persuade manufacturers to deliver on their smartphones. However, this has not succeeded in large numbers. The OnePlus One is a famous example of a phone that was shipped with an operating system of the company, but OnePlus later again abandoned . Furthermore, there are not many examples of phones that run from the manufacturers to a Cyanogen-os.
