The next web reports that the daily download figures in the Apple App Store increased by 87 percent on Christmas Day 2012 and the daily revenues showed a slightly lower increase of 70 percent. Of course this has to do with the fact that people give a lot of iOS presents in the holidays. The iPad was a very popular gift, since iPad apps saw an increase in downloads of 140 percent. Also iTunes gift cards help increasing these numbers.

TheNextWeb writes: Flurry said Christmas Day 2012 was a record download day, beating every other previous day in history. Interestingly, Distimo noted that last year it reported downloads tripling on Christmas Day compared to the December 2011 average, while this year the jumps didn’t even double. It’s possible that Android app download made up for this difference, and apps for Google’s mobile operating system took off.

Distimo also listed the top 10 iOS apps, excluding those made by Apple, on a worldwide level (top 40 countries) in terms of downloads. These were as follows: YouTube, Google Maps, ElfYourself by OfficeMax, Where’s My Holiday?, Skype for iPad, Subway Surfers, Flow Free, Furby, Instagram, and Emoji & Unicode Icons – Special Symbols For Messages & Email.
