MiKandiHere’s something that won’t be coming to the iPhone any time soon – an app store for Porn.

Apple keeps ‘adult-only’ content off the iPhone. On Android there are no such restrictions and one company has taken that to its natural conclusion by launching the world’s first mobile store for porn.

Although you won’t find MiKandi in the official Android Market you can download it from MiKandi.com. Once installed, the app gives you access to all sorts of over-18s-only apps. Categories include ‘Fun and Games’, ‘Adult News’, ‘Erotica’ and ‘Eye Candy’.

No matter what you think of pornography, there’s no doubt that it’s a huge business. Regardless of the technological breakthrough; videos, software, mobile phones – the porn industry has been quick to take advantage of it. The biggest surprise here is probably that it’s taken so long to for an adult app store to arrive.

MiKandi is only just starting out and is currently Android-only. It has plans to expand (check their jobs page: “self-righteous, ignorant and/or annoying people need not apply”). Support for more platforms is coming in the near future – just don’t expect to see it on the iPhone any time soon.
