GigaOM, App downloads hit record 1.76 billion over holiday week by Ryan Kim (@oryankim)
New data from Flurry shows that mobile app downloads increased to 1.76 billion, up from 1.2 billion a year ago, in the final week of 2012. This figure proves just how fast the app market is growing. However, these numbers are no surprise as mobile usage is on the rise with over 50 million iOS and Android devices activated over the last week of 2012. The United States leads the way with 604 million downloads, followed by China, the U.K. and Germany. The increase in application usage for mobile devices is good news for advertisers as it presents more opportunity for them to engage with consumers via mobile.
