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.

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.
