Seattle, WA (PRWEB) October 15, 2013
MiKandi, the largest mobile app store for adults, is pleased to announce MiKandi Mint List, the world’s first third-party Chrome app store. The Mint List Chrome app store, while still in beta, promises to deliver the best of the adult web, curating HTML5 apps, themes, and extensions from premier adult brands around the world.
“MiKandi’s mission is to aggregate and deliver the best adult experiences on mobile. While we’re fully committed to Android and the power of native apps, Mint List is our push into HTML5,” shares MiKandi CEO Jesse Adams. “The majority of our visitors, including many non-Android users, discover MiKandi from the Chrome browser. Further, the interest in HTML5 apps from industry leaders Google and Samsung made it clear to us that this is a space we need to explore now.”
MiKandi extended their mission of openness and innovation to Chrome earlier this year when Google announced Sundar Pichai would replace Andy Rubin as head of Android. Today, Pichai oversees Android, Chrome, and Google Apps. “For months, we saw signs that Google intended to converge their services, technologies, and devices,” continues Adams. “This became all the more evident to us with Google Glass and Chromecast, both of which unify Android and Chrome through HTML5.”
Chrome Apps have evolved from browser dependent to fully functional offline desktop applications. By utilizing the device’s hardware and new desktop-inspired user interface designs, Chrome Apps open up the previous limits of online-computing and allow for heavier applications. These apps take advantage of cloud computing by updating and syncing across devices online, and remaining available offline in some cases. Because they are built with web technologies, such as HTML5, Java, and CSS, Chrome Apps offer a lower barrier to entry to develop apps with near-native experiences.
This year, South Korean mobile giant Samsung backed Tizen, a Linux-based open source mobile OS. Tizen application development is based around the same web technologies as Chrome Apps and a look at Samsung’s 2013 Devcon schedule confirms the company’s interest in HTML5 (http://www.samsungdevcon.com/).
Studios, performers, and developers interested in featuring their adult HTML5 apps, themes, and extensions on Mint List are encouraged to email MiKandi at mintlist (at) mikandi (dot) com. The promotional video for Mint List is available on the company’s YouTube channel (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4YaDDvOTN20).
MiKandi made headlines this summer when the company launched the first adult application for Google Glass, Tits & Glass. Shortly after, MiKandi teamed with adult performers James Deen and Andy San Dimas, and adult industry news source XBiz to film the first adult video recorded with the innovative device.
