A staggering figure of more than a billion apps have been downloaded for the first time in a single week, this according to analytics firm Flurry who said 1.2 billion apps were downloaded in the last week of December.

The US was responsible for nearly half of the figures accounting for 509 million, followed by China with 99 million.The UK alone was responsible for 81 million which easily surpassed Canada with 41 million, Germany and France who each downloaded 40 million.

Flurry estimated that nearly seven million Android devices and iPhone were activated on Christmas Day. Apple does not disclose such figures but Google confirmed that more than 3.7 million Android devices were activated over the Christmas weekend.
