Apple says no to piracy?

Earlier, Kimi was trending and even defeated Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime Video in Apple's charts.

This, as watching pirated movies using an iPhone was made easy through the Kimi app. Without the need to shell out any money or register an account, users could easily watch movies.

Some of the movies included on the platform were Poor Things and Killers of the Flower Moon, as well as TV shows such as RuPaul’s Drag Race.

It was not clear, however, who was the mobile app developer.

Last 2015, a similar app called Popcorn Time gained tons of traction in the App Store.

With Popcorn Time, the complexity of BitTorrent search engines, trackers, clients, seeds, decompression, playback, and storage is reduced to a single click, Security reporter Andy Greenberg said at that time.
