The first great app orgy of consumption

The last month of 2011 was, for the app sector, the most astonishing time it has ever witnessed. According to analytics form Flurry, 1.2 billion apps were downloaded in the last week of December alone, as people unwrapped millions of iPhones, Androids, iPads and Android tablets all over the world during Christmas.
The US gobbled up half of the downloads, followed by China and the UK. The UK had 81 million downloads followed by Canada (41 million), Germany (40 million) and France (40 million).
“Looking forward to 2012, Flurry expects breaking the one billion download barrier per week will become more commonplace,” said the company’s blog.
It is estimated nearly seven million Android devices and iPhones were activated on Christmas Day 2011 alone. Now that’s smart.
