The company has announced that it has more than 50 million users at the moment – which is more than Windows Mobile and BlackBerry combined.
That is not bad for an outfit which started out as a simple ROM for Android devices which started out as a hobby by current CTO Steve Kondik in 2009.
The outfit was incorporated as a company in 2013 and now provides its Android-based software as pre-installed Cyanogen OS in devices like Yu Yureka and Yuphoria.
While Cyanogen OS was also originally pre-installed on the OnePlus One, the bitter falling-out between the two companies last year has resulted in OnePlus going with their own version of Android called Oxygen OS with the newly-announced OnePlus 2.
Cyanogen is basically Android without Google products and services. Recently it added a default email and calendar app.
The company has also teamed up with manufacturers to preload their software, such as OnePlus and India’s Micromax.
