How to make $80000 per month on the Apple App Store

It has now been removed from the US App Store (but is apparently still accessible in the Belize App Store) but since it was posted on 14 April, it is estimated by Mobile analytics firm Sensor Tower to have made around $80,000 a month. First one is that it will be necessary for the apps to use the Apple-based review prompt using which users can rate the app without exiting it.

Lin called the App Store's Search Ads product "immature" and said that aside from looking too much like search results, that ads sometimes take up an entire page of search results.

One developer has been able to gross more than 50,000 downloads for one of their iOS apps, notching tenth place on the App Store's productivity board, while making $80,000 per month. Apple takes a 30% cut on every purchase, from the App Store or in-app. But as Medium blogger Johnny Lin found out, the mechanism that Ngan Vo Thi Thuy exploited involves tricking gullible users in the app and spreading awareness of the app through ad listings on App Store searches.

In his article, "How to Make $80,000 Per Month on the Apple App" Lin highlights a troubling trend where search ads are being manipulated to promote unsafe apps. Tapping on the trial offer then threw up a Touch ID authentication prompt containing the text "You will pay $99.99 for a 7-day subscription starting Jun 9, 2017".

Preds leaning on Rinne to force Penguins back to Pittsburgh
On Nashville's side, goalkeeper Pekka Rinne has been a drastically different player at Bridgestone Arena than at PPG Paints Arena. He has a.756 save percentage and 5.41 goals against average in Pittsburgh and was chased from the net in both Game 2 and Game 5.

The notion that something like this appears in the App Store - which Apple is supposed to keep close tabs on - is noting short of infuriating and inexcusable. That was previously one of the biggest drawbacks of submitting an app review.

Tim Cook announced at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) last week that the company has paid out a total of $70 billion to app developers since the App Store opened almost a decade ago, and $21 billion over just the past year. For many legitimate app developers, this is a cumbersome, time-consuming, and capricious process. But there's still the question of how they even pass the review process.

iOS: If you've never checked on your app subscriptions, I don't blame you. Subscriptions are astonishingly easy to opt into via TouchID and exceedingly hard to cancel (PSA: instructions here).

Apple didn't respond to Mashable's request for comment on app subscriptions or whether those who had unwittingly paid exorbitant amounts for app subscriptions would get refunds.
