The latest numbers from analytics firm Flurry suggest that Android and iOS flourished in the last week of the 2012. The firm previously estimated that roughly 17.4 million Android and iOS devices were activated on Christmas Day, leading to an estimated 1.76 billion mobile application downloads and more than 50 million activations for the full week. The latest numbers represent the highest number of device activations and app downloads of any week in history, an increase from 20 million activations and 1.2 billion downloads during Christmas week in 2011. Flurry estimates that in 2013 the trend of one-billion app downloads per week will become more frequent and by next December, more than 2 billion apps will be downloaded in a single week.
