Cyanogen and Boxer have announced a partnership in bringing Boxer’s email app to Cyanogen OS. The company’s next update, Cyanogen OS 12, will be the first to feature Boxer’s app as the default.
Cyanogen’s motive is to offer alternatives to Google’s stock Android apps, as it is not satisfied with the manner in which Google controls the platform. This is also to provide a better solution than its own. It needs to be said: this is not CyanogenMod-built but a partner app.
While some Cyanogen users may be taken aback by this, there is an upside. The app will come with all of its premium features, including Exchange support, multiple accounts, and quick replies. Also, the user can customize what LED color corresponds to which email account and specify how left and right swipes on messages work.
Boxer will be available in Cyanogen OS 12, which will be coming to the OnePlus One and the Alcatel OneTouch Hero 2+ in a few weeks.
