Record breaking activations for Android and iOS

Record breaking activations for Android and iOS

Flurry Analytics tracks 100% of all new Android and iOS activations, and they’ve come up with some very interesting statistics:

From December 1st through the 20th Android and iOS activations averaged 1.5 million per day, but on Christmas day shot up by more than 4.5 times to 6.8 million, totalling in at over 140% over last year’s record with 2.8 million activations on Christmas day. With this incredible rise in activations, of course, came an astounding, if not as impressive, skyrocket of app downloads which Flurry tells us averaged 108 million per day throughout the month leading up to Christmas 2011, and weighed in at 242 million downloads on Christmas day, more than 125% growth, and anticipates over 1 billion dowloads through New Year’s Day, in keeping with the percentage of elevation for that period last year.
