Droid Smashes others in Christmas app downloads.

 Flurry Holiday Share

The holidays are a great time of the year to spend with family and friends, to share the spirit with loved ones near and far. It is also a time to download as many apps as you can with all that gift money you just received, at least that is what Droid owners think. Flurry app market analysts  released a report on Monday showing the Droid nearly equaling the other Android devices in X-Mas downloads combined! The MyTouch3G in second place showed only 18% of the app downloads with the Hero comming falling behind with 17% and the G1 with only 16%, but nothing can compare to the Droid’s 49% share. 

Other findings of the report;

  • Droid application downloads increased by 93% over previous Fridays in December.
  • Droid accounted for 48% of download volume across the leading Android handsets (Droid, myTouch 3G, G1 and HTC Hero).
  • App Store download volume is more than 13 times greater than Android Market.
  • Android Market Growth increased by over 20% in December* over November.
