Pirated movies and TV shows app, disguised as Sudoku game, climbs App Store charts [update: gone]

Update: The app has been removed from the App Store.

A free-to-play app called Zoshy+ has been gradually climbing up the Puzzle game charts on the App Store. Based on its screenshots and app description, the app looks like an innocuous Sudoku client.

However, actually launching the app reveals a very different experience.
