Fortune already told us that the Apple is the most valuable company in the world by leaving all the giants behind. Apple is the most revenue generating machines if we talk about mobile app world. It is mentioned earlier by the Apple developer has raised more than 700 billion from the App store since 2008. Every App maker or developer wishes to make its app more visible App store to generate acquire the maximum figures. Recently analyses were done by the App Developer Johnny Linn revealed the name of the company creating maximum revenue.

During the Analysis, Johny found top 10 iOS apps those are generating the maximum revenue.The list includes the name of some big fishes like Dropbox and Evernote leading the charts. But there is relatively an obscure app which ranked no. 10 among the Top 10 highest -grossing apps in App Store.This app named "Mobile Protection: Clean & Security VPN" from very little-known developer Ngan Vo Thi Thuy is generating a revenue of $80,000 every month.

This less-known app is creating a huge amount of money from the app store and made a place in top 10 lists. John the researcher on the topic have some dubious feeling about the application, how the making this amount of revenue. John starts using the app, the app claims itself as the security app which ultimately improves the performance of the phones. He mentioned a suspicious behaviour of the app when the app asks the users to share their contacts with it. Further, when John continues using the app want him to charge $99.99 for a seven-day subscription to its virus scanner. If the user agrees to that the user would have paid $400 a month for the virus scanner.

The is a security program which also serves to funnel Internet traffic or you can say users are sending all the internet traffic through the app. There is nothing bad in the program there are plenty of apps in the Appstore offering such service. So the question is what driving this much business to the application. According to Johnny app uses the App Store search ads to move on to the top of the search result when the user put relevant query.

Mobile protection: Clean & Security VPN has a three-star rating in the App Store review along with some great reviews by the users.Some of the user mentioned using the app increased the iPhone performance and works faster. While some others highly recommend the app to other users.

The authenticity and safety concern of the application can't be trusted as all the applications go through Apple’s inevitable standards. Apple makes sure the every app submitting in the App Store are safe and secured from all point of view for the users.But the Mobile Protection: Clean & Security VPN app once again proves that App Store is a potential revenue generator for the developers.
