This is the main danger of the App Store

Before WWDC 2017, we had the opportunity to verify once again that the App Store is the most beneficial buy platform that exists with abysmal figures: 70,000 million dollars have been won by the developers throughout its history. Interestingly, it has just been known that perhaps these figures are not as clean as it seems .

And is that in addition to getting benefits from the acquisition of an app, some developers also do in-app purchases and intrusive search ads , so they get you subscribe to unwanted services such as VPN apps, antivirus Or password generators.

Dropbox, Evernote, and Microsoft, and in the tenth position is "Mobile protection: Clean & Security VPN" and a little below "Full Virus, Malware scanner" something Which is impossible since third-party apps use sandboxing for their data , so they can not control native apps. Another even offers subscriptions of 7 days for 99 euros. Specifically this app gets about $ 80,000 a month without doing essentially anything.

And is that the App Store may be safe in terms of viruses and malware , especially if compared to Android, but do not get rid of scammers in your ads . And is that the App Store does not have an evolved algorithm to filter and get rid of them.

Fortunately, this could come to an end with iOS 11 , which will feature a number of improvements in the App Store that will affect search and filtering, among other things, and promise to prevent many more ads.

But the question remains, how is Apple allowing these scams so far? In any case and given the astronomical numbers of the App Store, it would be desirable a little more ethics by the developers.
