SEATTLE — MiKandi has confirmed that AT&T Android users can now access its adult app store by simply checking a box for “Unknown Sources.”
In an email to GeekWire, MiKandi co-founder Jesse Adams said that users can access the company’s adult apps, as well as the Amazon Appstore just by ticking the checkbox.
Previously, users had to go through a “sideloading workaround” to use the MiKandi store.
According to a MiKandi blog, AT&T Samsung Android Infuse 4G customers are the first to benefit from the new development.
“Currently most AT&T Android devices still restrict third party apps. For those customers, you can sideload apps onto your device with the help of Android Central’s Sideload Wonder Machine — no rooting required. Those of you with rooted Androids can now get the full MiKandi experience by downloading and installing premium adult apps from directly in the mobile app market — no sideloading necessary,” the blog stated.
In celebration of the new development, the MiKandi team also noted on its blog that the news alleviates concern over AT&T’s proposed T-Mobile USA acquisition.
“This serves as promising news given the recent announcement of AT&T’s acquisition of Android friendly T Mobile. Many customers and developers shared valid concerns over whether or not the acquisition would affect access to and distribution of third party applications,” MiKandi said.
AT&T recently expanded beyond the official Android market allowing third-party app stores for Android devices by way of Amazon.com’s Android Appstore, the first of which was the Infuse G4.
GeekWire reported that other existing devices to be updated with the capability are the HTC Inspire 4G, Samsung Captivate, HTC Aria and the LG Thunder.
