Taking Android Away From Google: Boxer To Be The Default Mail App On Cyanogen OS 12

With a raft of funding and partnership deals, Cyanogen seems to be a strong contender for 3rd place in the OS wars.

Cyanogen has been on a path to reduce its reliance on Google services, appealing to users who’re irked by the giant’s questionable practices such as going through your email.

Starting with the rollout of CM 12, the company’s Lollipop based release, Boxer will be the default email app for Cyanogen OS.
Kirt McMaster, CEO of Cyanogen, has made it no secret that he wants to steal Android away from Google, and in the process become the third largest mobile OS provider itself.
Boxer will replace the current email solution that has been developed by the Cyanogen community, and will include features that the app currently offers on its premium version.
The email app will feature extensive customization options, integrated task management, and integrations with apps such as Evernote and Dropbox.
