Are all of the application available in the Appstore safe?

The reason why I'm asking this, is because I was looking for a VPN to access US netflix and I found one in the Appstore called "VPN ONE CLICK", which is free for the first week but is it safe? I mean I've heard many proxies are just scams to steal your information. Can I rely that this app is safe because is in the appstore?

For VPN services I would rely on established services available on Internet. On the other side if the vendor of the app you mentioned has some other stuff around and has a history, why not.

For your own security you can of course isolate the app a bit more and prevent access to contacts, images etc. other data you never know ...

Apple can't check for all possible back doors ...

Yeah, I'd much rather trust something that others use and trust. Here's a great list from Lifehacker.
