Free gay video site, RocketTube.com is first to offer iPad compatibility.
“There are no adult tube sites listed on Apple’s list,” notes RocketTube spokesperson Sha Prewitt, “but if there were, we believe RocketTube.com would stand alone as the first and only fully iPad compatible tube site online.”
As soon as the new iPad was available, RocketTube.com began tweaking its code to ensure compatibility with what some have called the greatest porn delivery device ever created. The testing phase was completed this week and now that the new code has gone live, iPad users automatically get a version of the site that uses HTML 5, instead of Adobe Flash, to deliver streaming video.
“There are several adult tubes that claim to offer mobile versions, but in reality they simply redirect mobile users to co-branded or third party sites that charge for access,” says Prewitt. “We’ve seen mobile traffic grow consistently over the past year, and when the iPad was announced we knew the time had come to really get in the game. I’ve heard estimates that there may be upwards of 100 million users on the iPhone and iPad platforms alone by the end of 2010, which is an astonishing number, but for us, the initial success of the iPad is especially exciting,” he said.
Prewitt expects that other tube sites will eventually make the changes necessary to serve this potentially huge audience, but for now he’s excited that RocketTube appears to be the only tube site, straight or gay, that’s compatible with the new device. “Our office is filled with Apple fanboys, but we hope that the success of the iPad spurs other manufacturers to produce new and compelling devices,” he said. “Anything that makes viewing our product, and the products of our sponsors and advertisers, more portable and convenient is certainly a welcome development,” he said.
To help promote its new features, RocketTube.com plans to give away an iPad to the lucky winner of its “Tweet your way to an iPad” contest, which runs through the month of April. When any Twitter user Tweets the phrase ‘@RocketTube works on iPad’ during the month April, and follows @RocketTube from their Twitter account, they’ll receive one entry to win the brand new iPad. Each mention of the phrase counts as an additional entry, and the winner will be selected at random on May 1st.
RocketTube.com is one of the fastest growing gay adult sites on the Internet. Launched in mid 2008, it already serves millions of users each month, and is the 3,339th busiest website in terms of traffic in the United States, according to Alexa Internet, Inc.
