SEATTLE — MiKandi, a leading adult app store and mobile streaming subscription service for adult entertainment, is now installed on 3.8 million devices worldwide, with 1 million registered customers, the company announced Tuesday.

Launched  late  2009,  the  first-of-its-kind  app  store  was  met  with  strong  support  from  Android users  and  developers  who  needed  an  adult-friendly  app  store  to  distribute  their  applications. In  less than one week, MiKandi was downloaded more than 80,000 times, the company said. That number jumped to 2 million by the beginning  of  2012  with  the  launch  of  MiKandi  Theater,  the  subscription-based  mobile  streaming service  of  adult  content.  By  July  of  that  year,  MiKandi  launched  the  HTML5  version  of  MiKandi Theater  for  all  smartphones  and  tablets,  including  iPad,  iPhone,  and  Windows  Phone.  MiKandi Theater is currently available worldwide to any adult with a connected mobile device.

“The fact that we grew to this size organically, without any advertising dollars, is especially inspiring for  us,”  said  MiKandi  CEO Jesse  Adams. “It  goes  to  show  what  happens  when  you  focus  on offering great customer service and treating adults like adults.”

Android  users  can  download  MiKandi  for  free  at  Mikandi.com,  no  registration  required,  and browse  the  adult  app  store’s  catalog  of  thousands  of  applications. Alternatively,  non-Android  users can access MiKandi Theater, which the company said has been dubbed the "Netflix for porn," on their smartphone or tablet by visiting Mikandi.com/theater.  All  new  customers  are eligible to receive a free, seven-day  trial  with  no  registration  or  credit card required.
