Samsung closes the Tizen App Store

G6218th

Sad … but happens …

?

Too many vulnerabilities in a user interface written using the ’90s method. EFL, which Tizen was based on, was nice to show in its day, but that was a long time ago when the film “Hackers” was state of the art. I can’t believe anyone in the 21st century tried to create a modern interface based on this steaming heap of garbage. Maybe if they pawn the entire pile, but I don’t think Tizen has been hardened heavily, if anything, and Promise only kills the offensive app, which is unexpected behavior for the overwhelming majority of technically illiterate smartphone users.

That’s sad. You stopped trying to make it successful

Oh no ……. On other news

Color me surprised. When I see how it went with BadaOS I’m actually surprised it lasted for so long … Which begs a question, Tizen is used on ALL Samsung TVs. Does this mean Samsung is laying off Tizen and installing Android TV on all of its TVs from now on?

Samsung is better prepared to be enslaved.

Then just wait for Google to force TizenOS to revive.

Does that mean Samsung is really moving to Fuchsia OS gradually?

It’s sad because another operating system has failed and is moving closer and closer to just 2 caged monopolized ecosystems.

FOUR BLUE, 3 hours agoSamsung would either have to create an operating system from scratch or Tizen for low and … moreThe whole world has been dependent on Windows the longest. I think behind the scenes they might know that Google could replace Android with Fuchsia so they could work with Google to develop it.

Anonymous, 3 hours agoI thought they were still working on Tizen in the background like Huawei was working on HarmonyOS … moreShutting down doesn’t mean they’ll give it up completely. I’m sure it’s in the storeroom somewhere just in case what happens to Huawei happens to them too.

The people here are misinformed or just lying.
Samsung has restructured its business over the past few years. Much of it was at the expense of Tizen. If you had carefully followed them, not only have their Tizen phones been released less and less, but they’ve also scaled back their Tizen software update.

What they are doing now is relying 100% on Google for AndroidOS for their watch, phone and tablets. And the entire software department at Samsung will be working on their “Samsung Experience” user interface, which will be ported to their devices. The good news is that Samsung can ensure their devices get 3 year updates, which is far better than the rest of the market that usually doesn’t have updates (budget) or only 1 year updates (mid-range), or around 2 – Years update (high-end).

What is in the works for the future? Samsung will also be discontinuing its Smart TVs and switching to AndroidTV, possibly with a Samsung Skin. They will try to sell Tizen, which they probably will not succeed in doing. And probably in the end the whole project is open source. This is great news for the Linux distro community. People think it’s moronic, but webOS on Palm / HP was superior to Android in many ways in its heyday. And on TVs, webOS is the best smart TV experience, it’s much smoother than the competing Sony and Samsung devices I’ve used. In fact, I’ve seen some Chinese mid-range unbranded TVs that are also shipping with webOS this year, so that’s far from dead.

In my opinion, the best future for Tizen would be if it becomes open source AND is taken over by Huawei. The Chinese government has been looking for alternatives to American dependence, so this would be an important path. Just like the takeover of the GPU division of ImaginationTechnologies, the slow expansion of the lithography capacities of SMIC and the use of ARM CPUs (currently access to Cortex A76). If you are interested in this topic, take a look at the JingOS or the JingPad A1, it is the best open source product that has been released.

GregLu, 5 hours agoSince they brought Tizen together for Watch and Wear OS, G. probably issued a check or promised … moreThey bought access to Tizen. If you look at all the sub-details in Wear OS 3, it is Tizen. Identical. This is not something you skin. I suspect Samsung has kind of vetoed what the future of the operating system will be. I mean, Google clearly needs the guide. The only thing they’re really good at is selling fake news. It is a shame for the world in general and for technology in particular that fake news always wins if you control it as much as Google.

I thought they were still working on Tizen in the background like Huawei was working on HarmonyOS. But shutting it down feels like a big middle finger for Z4 buyers.

Constipation, before 3 hoursSamsung Smart TVs are the worst just because of this damn operating system. The availability of third party apps is … moreIt’s not the worst, it’s on par with LG web operating systems and definitely better than Vidaa, Opera, Roku and other TV operating systems, only Android TV is better in my opinion.

Tizen in tv is fluid and one of the few operating systems that allow IPTV players (you can load your own playlist sideways from TV).
