Looks like many of us got smart phones as gifts and that has prompted a huge surge in app downloads. According to Flurry Analytics, smartphone users downloaded more than 1.2 billion apps from Dec. 25 to Jan. 1.

Flurry reported last week that almost seven million Android and iOS devices were activated on Christmas day. Flurry also monitored which countries contributed most to the 1.2 billion app downloads last week. The U.S. easily takes the cake with 509 million downloads, or 42.3 percent of the share. Next in line is China with 99 million downloads followed by the U.K. with 81 million downloads. After that, Canada drops to 41 million and the rest slowly decline from there.

Flurry even predicts that the one billion app downloads per week threshold will become the norm moving into 2012.
