Advancement of network technologies, restructuring of revenue-sharing pattern, lowering of mobile data usage cost, growing adoption of smartphones, and increase in application usability have contributed to the growth of mobile application adoption globally. Apart from this, the mobile application advertising opportunity has allowed publishers to partly (by allowing discounts) or fully subsidize (make application free) applications; this has helped increase the adoption of mobile applications. However, the surge in the number of applications has increased the risk of data theft through delivery of phishing and spyware in applications.
