Report: Apps Hot For Holidays

The volume of apps downloaded to Apple's iPod Touch saw a nearly 1,000% jump on Christmas Day, according to mobile app analytics firm Flurry. Overall, the App Store saw a 51% increase in downloads from November to December -- downloads only increased by 15% from October to November. Christmas also marked the first day that iPod Touch app downloads surpassed iPhone app downloads, which makes sense to the MobileCrunch blog because the iPod Touch is a more common gift than an iPhone.

The Android Market, meanwhile, saw a 20% bump in app sales as well, sparked primarily by an uptick in downloads from the Motorola Droid. According to Flurry, the highest number of Android App sales came from the Droid -- in fact, 49% of all Android Apps sold on Christmas day came from that one handset.
