That’s right, 1.76 billion apps were downloaded in one week for iOS and Android powered devices. This all occurred over the course of the holiday.
According to FA, more than 17.4 million iOS and Android devices were activated on Christmas day and 328 million apps were downloaded across both devices as well. That’s insane! It’s like everyone who received a smartphone decided to instantly boot everything up and head straight to the app store to grab as many cool apps as they could find.
What’s more is that between Christmas and new year’s day more than 50 million mobile smartphones were activated. And, of course, between that time the 1.76 billion app marker was reached.
