2011 Broke The Billion App Download Barrier

The app industry is bigger than ever, especially with the rise in app sales during the last week of 2011. This could be the year to put a little more attention into the app you use to promote your business or start an app company of your own.

In its most recent report, Flurry estimated that a record-breaking 6.8 million iOS and Android devices were activated on Christmas Day, along with an equally record-breaking 242 million application downloads. Studying the data from December 25 – December 31, additional records were set, now for the highest number of device activations and app downloads of any week in history. Over the holiday “power week,” Flurry estimates that over 20 million iOS and Android devices were activated, and 1.2 billion applications were downloaded.
