Android’s App Store For Pornography, MiKandi, Adds Support For Paid Appliions

Yes, as Steve Jobs likes to point out, Android has at lst one third-party App Store that is dedied to pornography and other ‘adult’ content. No, it doesn’t have anything to do with Google —it’s made by a company called MiKandi (NSFW). And while it draws plenty of snickering and sneers from the faithful, it capitalizes on a fact of life: a lot of people watch porn. And some of them are willing to pay for it.Today, MiKandi has relsed a new version of its adult app store. The company says that it’s been rebuilt from the ground up, and it also includes one major new fture: support for paid appliions. Previously MiKandi apps have been free; now developers will be able to erate revenue through a channel other than advertising.Instd of selling appliions individually (and conducting a different transaction for ch app) MiKandi is selling a virtual currency that can be used to purchase premium apps. This mns that charges can be consolidated under one innocuous-sounding item on a credit card statement, and it also lets MiKandi take advantage of an ‘Offers’ system similar to the ones have been so successful on Facebook. At this point there are no Offers available, but MiKandi says they are coming soon.Yes, I’m sure some of you are shaking your hds, but remember that there are plenty of premium porn sites on the web, and their ubiquity seems to indie that they’re making money. Combine that with the impulsive buying mentality driven by the iPhone’s App Store and Android Market, and it’s not hard to imagine that some of these apps could do pretty well for themselves. And MiKandi has 300,000 installs so far, which isn’t anything to scoff at.If you are ger to give the new MiKandi for a spin, you’ll need to install it from their website (it isn’t in Android Market for obvious rsons). You can get an id of what the store looks like in the below, which does not contain nudity but may still be considered NSFW.
