Filth goes where technology goes: Porn hits the Android phone

1 December 2009

Mucky films and pictures are something that our dirty minded species can't help but embrace. Before we had electricity, people used to fumble in their trousers to the nudie statues in galleries and museums. This makes art-critics a bunch of filth pedlars.

These days, we don't need Brian Sewell dribbling over some marble arse because we've got a dizzying array of ways we can pump porn directly into our crotches.

The latest is that Android-based smartphones now have access to a porn app... something you don't get on the iPhone App Store.

MiKandi, a Seattle, Washington start-up, is offering its eponymous app not through Google's own Android Market, but from its own website, downloadable free when accessed through the Android browser.

Google and Apple vet applications that are offered through their respective online stores. However, unlike Apple, Google allows you to install non-vetted apps at your discretion. This is how MiKandi are playing it, allowing you to get skin-flicks when and wherever you like.

Of course, the adult movie industry has to move with the times like anyone else. Illegal downloads are shafting the industry, not to mention that, thanks to everyone having a digital camera and access to filming videos, everyone is making their own.

It's not like porn hasn't jumped the bones of each new technological advancement anyway... porn was well onto VHS tapes, DVDs and the web without much hesitation. Gadgets can be judged a success on the fact that porno gets involved with it.

So can we assume that the mucky app will propel Android phones ahead of the iPhone in the market place?

Probably not. That's because you can still view adult films and images through the Safari browser on your iPhone. Not that Apple users would debase themselves to do some one-handed browsing... oh no.

    Of course, Android already has Flash installed anyway so you can watch poor quality streaming porn at your leisure, on the iPhone it breaks the T&C's.
