According to data from Flurry, a mobile apps analysis company, App Store downloads for the iPod Touch increased by 1,000 percent on Christmas, as new iPod Touch owners got their first taste of the mobile app world.
The iPod Touch surge helped to lead the App Store to a 51 percent increase in downloads from November to December. Compare that to the 15 percent month-over-month from October to November and it’s clear that it was a merry holiday season.
Not quite as overwhelming as the Apple’s Store news, but equally positive, Motorola’s Droid captured 49 percent of Android app downloads on Christmas. Android apps enjoyed a 22 percent month-over-month boost between November and December.
note: It’s important to remember that this data isn’t sales data, so of course many of the extrapolations are conjecture. It is plausible that the gap between the App Store and Android Market does not in any way relate to handset sales.Nonetheless, it is likely that the sale of the device would trend alongside app sales.
