MiKandi launches first adult application store for Android

The adult industry often decides high tech format wars. It is a dirty little secret for those who follow technology trends. The iPhone AppStore and Android Market both block adult content, but Android allows users to install applications from sources other than the official market. MiKandi (pronounced “my candy”) has figured this out and launched the first application store on Android targeted for adults.

Google is sure to frown on this, but because of the open source nature of Android, they can do little to block it.

I have yet to see any real parental control software for Android, so maybe this is the time for someone to jump in. However, I think parents have much more to worry about (than MiKandi) when they provide their children with smartphones. The dangers of sex-ting are well known and I would be scared to death to provide my kids (if I had any) with a cell phone.
