Adam4Android is in limited availability on the android market due to what Adam4Adam considers Trademark infringement. I believe because the yellow icon says "A4A". but the last A was suppose to stand for 'Android'. I think they could've just said "hey change that icon" but whatever. I'll work on a new icon. In the mean time check out this petition...

If you would like to see adam4android again and better than ever, SIGN THIS PETITION.

Quoted from petition:

Reason #1 
In a world where online communities are expanding exponentially, is lacking a key component that most online 'social' services are using to expand their appeal to other online services and individual developers while offering their customer more options. This key component is an open API.
Ever used TweetDeck or Seesmic for Twitter or Facebook? Or how about any app on the app market or play store that is not a sites "official app"? Search any app store for the words instagram, tumblr, facebook, twitter, etc. and you'll find 100's of app for any given service. This is made possible because these services offer whats called an open API. What this does is allow any independent software developer or software developers from other online services to create unique experiences catered to the end-user's (frequent users of the site) choice of device/interface and preference of engaging experience.
Reason #2
While does offer its own set of mobile applications for its service. These apps are lacking and falling behind today's competing dating apps. i.e. jack'd, okCupid, Grindr, POF, etc.
I'm starting this petition because has been around since early 2000's, that's before MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, and even Youtube. It's no reason why this service should not be competing with today's online services and applications.
Allowing an API to be open to the public not only open a online service up to mobile devices but pretty much any internet connected device you can think of. Which, in essence, grows the business itself.
If you want's totalitarian business model to change into something heading in the direction of democracy, SIGN THIS PETITION.
This change is simply a change in legal documentation and end-user agreement.
