It’s long been known that “there’s a porn store on Android” and “folks who want porn can buy an Android phone.” (Steve Jobs) While that still rings true when it comes to porn apps, it appears we need to make an amendment.
Folks who want porn can buy an Android phone and download MiKandi, the porn store on Android.
Google Play: “We love boobies…. SYKE!”
Since the transition from Android Market to Google Play, Google has beefed up its policy around adult material, and has begun to drive developers of adult apps out of their market. Last week, the market banned the app Reddit is Fun for violating its content policy. Read more on Pulp Tech at ZDNet. We’ve reached out to the developer to ask him to share the app in MiKandi, where we will hug it and pet it and squeeze it and name it George, but we haven’t heard back. Andrew Shu, if you’re reading this- we want you!
While we’re sad to see Google Play follow Apple’s path, we understand why a mainstream market would want to keep adult material out. You don’t want a market that appeals to kids and adults. At least Google gives adults the option to get the apps they want by downloading them from third party sources (e.g. MiKandi, the world’s first and largest adult app market.)
Focus is good
Joining the world’s first and largest adult app market has its perks. Developers in MiKandi report higher relevant downloads and installs in our market because our audience is specifically looking for adult apps.
In the past week, we’ve received many requests from developer driven out of Google Play to join our market. And we take them with open arms. It may be the other markets’ “moral responsibility” to keep porn off phones, but at MiKandi, it’s our responsibility to treat adults like adults.
