Yesterday we reported that Cyanogen were laying off around twenty percent of their staff, we also reported that the company may be pivoting to apps and according to the Company’s CEO, they are not pivoting to apps.
Kirt McMaster revealed on Twitter that the company will remain an OS company, you can see his tweet below.
Cyanogen NOT pivoting to apps. We are an OS company and our mission of creating an OPEN ANDROID stands. FALSE reporting was outstanding.

The company’s co-founder and creator of CyanogenMod Steve Kondik also revealed on their blog that they are not going anywhere and that they will continue to develop the OS.
I wanted to quickly address the circus of misinformation which has sprung up recently, particularly for everyone who uses CM or has been involved with the project.
tl;dr: CyanogenMod isn’t going anywhere, nor has Cyanogen Inc. discontinued it’s efforts towards the goal of bringing it to a larger audience.
You can see Steve Kondik’s full post over at the company’s blog at the link below.
