AdultSpace now plays friendly with smartphones [NSFW]

We’ll go ahead and make it clear, for the sake of those who missed the headline: This post is not something you want to peruse in your cubicle. We’ll try to keep the post itself pretty clean, but clicking through just about any of the links within will lead you to pages packed with boobies, wing-wongs, and hoo-has. And yes, I did just use those words on TechCrunch.

Back in March, adult social network AdultSpace (who, we have reason to believe, spent at least 13 minutes coming up with their name) got a hot cash injection of $1.3 million from various angel investors. At the time, AdultSpace disclosed that one of their primary goals was to get into the mobile space.

Five months later, that goal has been reached — to some extent, at least. AdultSpace has now launched the mobile version of their site, opening the door for users to share pictures of their junk wherever they may be. Users can access the mobile site from any smartphone by pointing their browser at the normal AdultSpace.com URL, allowing them on-the-go access to member profiles, pictures, videos, blogs, forums, and classifieds.

Alas, it’s still all browser based. It’s convenient, but not cutting edge. AdultSpace’s goal here is to cut into AdultFriendFinder‘s lead, but the latter has had a mobile site for some time now. Neither has managed to pull off a native application on any of the major smartphone platforms yet – which, of course, isn’t really their fault. Plenty of folks will argue handset sales numbers to death here, but the only platforms truly worth developing for at this point are those with centralized app stores. That is: Android (App Market), iPhone OS (App Store), BlackBerry (Blappworld), Palm webOS (App Catalog), and S60 (Ovi). Of those, the only store that such apps would even be considered for is Android’s App Market.

It’s too bad, really. The ridiculous popularity of premium “Semi-clothed chicks standing there looking sexy” applications proves that people are less reserved on their mobiles than most would have assumed. There’s money to be made in portable flirting (portaflirting?). Booty-calling is on the way out; it’s all about Booty-browsing, now
