How We Discovered the Underground Chinese App Market
Rachelle Lee stashed this in China
This is eye opening -- I had no idea how big this is:
The underground Chinese App Market brings more than $10 million a year in revenue from Stolen Apps
We discovered our apps on iPadIpa.com, a Chinese clone of Cydia.
Then we came across KuaiYong(aka 7659.com), an app market that allows users to install iOS apps without even jailbreaking their phone.
The site even uses geolocation to hide its store from users outside of China.In 2012 42% of iPhones were jailbroken in China
That’s thirty-four million jailbroken devices with access to apps stolen through illegal app stores.
