MiKandi on 3.8 Million Devices

mikandi

We’re happy to announce today that MiKandi, the world’s leading adult app store and mobile streaming subscription service for adult entertainment, is now installed on 3.8 million devices worldwide, with 1 million registered customers.

Launched late 2009, our first-of-its-kind app store was met with tremendous support from Android users and developers who needed an adult-friendly app store to distribute their applications. In less than one week, MiKandi was downloaded over 80,000 times. That number jumped to 2 million by the beginning of 2012 with the launch of MiKandi Theater, the subscription-based mobile streaming service of adult content. By July of that year, we launched the HTML5 version of MiKandi Theater for all smartphones and tablets, including iPad, iPhone, and Windows Phone. MiKandi Theater is currently available worldwide to any adult with a connected mobile device.

The fact that we grew to this size organically, without any advertising dollars, is especially inspiring for us. It goes to show what happens when you focus on offering great customer service and treating adults like adults. We’re thankful to all of our customers and fans who’ve supported us over the past three years.

Android users can download MiKandi for free at http://mikandi.com, no registration required, and browse the adult app store’s catalog of thousands of applications. Alternatively, non-Android users can access MiKandi Theater, dubbed the “Netflix for porn”, on their smartphone or tablet by visiting http://mikandi.com/theater. All new customers enjoy a free 7 day trial with no registration or credit card required.

Google bless the U.S. of A(ndroid)

Wooo-wee!  Americans love them some Android.

For the first time since Q4 2007, RIM is not the top-selling OS in the US.  Q2 2010 belongs to Android OS, taking in 33% of the market.  RIM accounted for 28% of the market, followed by iPhone at 22%.

Based on US consumer purchases of mobile phone in Q2, the top 5 Android smartphones were as follows:

  • Motorola Droid (Got it!)
  • HTC Droid Incredible (Want it!)
  • HTC EVO 4G (Got it!)
  • HTC Hero
  • HTC Droid Eris

According to  the NPD Group, who released these findings today, “Verizon Wireless has maintained its lead among top carriers for the last three quarters comprising a third (33 percent) of the units sold in the U.S. mobile phone market in Q2, followed by AT&T (25 percent), Sprint (12 percent), and T-Mobile (11 percent).”

Jailbreaking your iPhone determined legal in U.S. – WIN!

Ho.  Lee.  Cow.

A major win for third party iPhone app developers, app stores, and app users.  The U.S. Copyright law has determined that it is NOT illegal to jailbreak your iPhone.

Every three years, the U.S. Librarian of Congress reviews copyright laws in order to make revisions and exemptions.  The purpose of this is to determine “whether current technologies that control access to copyrighted works are diminishing the ability of individuals to use works in lawful, non-infringing ways.”  (copyright.gov)

On Monday, the following six classes of works are now exempt from prosecution (from CrunchGear):

  1. Defeating a lawfully obtained DVD’s encryption for the sole purpose of short, fair use in an educational setting or for criticism
  2. Computer programs that allow you to run lawfully obtained software on your phone that you otherwise would not be able to run aka Jailbreaking to use Google Voice on your iPhone
  3. Computer programs that allow you to use your phone on a different network aka Jailbreaking to use your iPhone on T-Mobile
  4. Circumventing video game encryption (DRM) for the purposes of legitimate security testing or investigation
  5. Cracking computer programs protected by dongles when the dongles become obsolete or are no longer being manufactured
  6. Having an ebook be read aloud (is for the blind) even if that book has controls built into it to prevent that sort of thing.

To get you up to speed, earlier this year Apple complained to the 2009 DMCA triennial rulemaking committee concerning jailbreaking the iPhone, and asked for the action to be deemed illegal.  This was in response to a grant filed by the EFF asking that jailbreaking be allowed and kept legal as it improves the overall capabilities of the iPhone.  In essence, Apple telling you it’s illegal to jailbreak your phone would similar to Honda telling you it’s illegal to purchase and install non-OEM parts (hypothetical example).

Obviously, this news touches close to home, as many of you have been asking when MiKandi will be available for iPhones.  As you know, MiKandi is on Apple’s radar, and we know better than to poke a sleeping giant.  It was never our intention to alienate our iPhone fans, but our plans were thwarted until today’s decision was made.  While I can’t say that we definitely will or will not pursue a MiKandi iPhone market either way, I can promise that we will investigate our options.  It is our vision to treat all of our fans, developers, and consumers as adults, and deliver quality adult-themed apps to numerous platforms.

Cheers!

Android Phone is For Porn

Google Android outsells Apple iPhone

Analysts have been predicting this for quite some time, and if you’ve seen our presentation “Taking Advantage of the Emerging Multi Billion Dollar Mobile App Market“, you would have seen the figures there as well.  The forecast: Google Android will outrank Apple iPhone by 2013.

Reports have been trickling in that Android has already begun to fulfill the prophecy.

Today from Mobile Beat:

Smartphones based on Google’s Android mobile operating system have outsold Apple’s iPhone in the U.S. during the first quarter of 2010, according to a report by research firm The NPD Group. The data places Android, with 28 percent of the smartphone market, in second place behind RIM’s Blackberry smartphone market share of 36 percent. Apple now sits in third place with 21 percent.

Between that and dem fightin’ werdz from Apple CEO Steve Jobs, it seems like there’s a war a-brewin’.  What side will you be on?

No porn apps on the iPhone? Think again!

Remember when Steve Jobs said it was Apple’s “moral responsibility to keep porn off the iPhone“?  He’s gonna hate this!

A few weeks go, hacker David Wang announced that he found a way to get Android on the iPhone, and posted this how-to video.

This morning, a MiKandi iPhone user sent us a photo of the MiKandi App Store on his iPhone.  And we gotta say, this is pretty exciting.

Thanks for sharing, Laurent!

If you’re running Android on your iPhone and have installed the MiKandi App Store, send us a photo at mikandi@mikandi.com.

Installing MiKandi on your iPhone

Our previous request for screenshots has been answered… and then some!

KeeMan has a brilliant idea for what to do with those useless iPhone 2G’s- install MiKandi.  iPhoners rejoice!

From KeeManXP:

Thanks for the great efforts by @planetbeing the first generation of iPhone (2G) can now runs Android OS and soon 3G. @Planetbeing has successfully ported the Android OS to run smoothly on iPhone 2G and the project has been named as iDroid/iPhone Linux. Now, to those who are thinking of throwing away or replacing your iPhone 2G (since you can’t really enjoy the benefits of the new iPhone OS), you might want to try installing iDroid. The primary reason is because you can now enjoy MiKandi (a.k.a My Candy) App Store, the world first adult porn application store on your iPhone. Well, make sure you’re 18 years old and above! It’s also not safe for work unless you work in the “relevant” unrestricted industries.
