Cartoon HD

I'm surprised this is on the Apple store but essentially it allows you to watch a shedload of movies, shows (and loads of cartoons) for free.

I don't think it is in applestore - it installed without going anywhere near it. But it works.

Looks suspicious to me.

The application installs without using the AppStore, as it has been signed with a corporate key designed to allow companies to distribute their site specific apps in house without placing them on the AppStore. It's against Apples terms of service to distribute apps generated with such a key elsewhere, so it's likely that the key it uses will be revoked very shortly.

As the app hasn't gone through Apple's verification procedure, it's possible that the app uses programming features outside of Apple's strict guidelines. Consequentially it may be able to get hold of personal information unavailable to standard apps.
