App downloads surge to 1.2 billion over Christmas

Mobile apps were a big hit for Christmas with more than 1.2 billion downloaded to smartphones and tablets during the festive season.

Mobile analytics outfit Flurry tracks downloads on iOS and Android devices and revealed in a blog update that 20 million new mobile devices were activated, 6.8 million on Christmas Day alone. It was this surge of new users that burst the one billion downloads a week barrier.

The company said that a billion downloads a week would become more commonplace in 2012 while also revealing that the UK was the third largest market for downloads worldwide, behind only the United States and China with twice as many downloads as the next highest Canada.
