I like how they mention "abusing" Apple's IOS development program, as if writing software for their platform was a privilege. And there lies the problem: Apple has too much power over what apps the users can install. The right to decide which apps you use on your devices should be yours, not Apple's
Also, to label this one app as "risky" is a rather moot statement, since mobile phones always have malware installed right from the moment they leave the factory. If anything, it's the underground hackers (the "pirates") who are ensuring the security of mobile devices: to remove the malicious pre-installed apps from your devices, you usually have to download a tool that will crack you OS, so that you can become a root user, which is necessary to remove pre-installed apps. Otherwise, you'll be stuck with four different Amazon apps (at least that was the case the last time I bought an Android phone).
