Droid does encourage users to download more Android apps

We took a few days off to enjoy the Christmas holiday with our family, but Flurry was hard at work collecting mobile application analytics.

Flurry compiled all their stats to see how customers behaved on Christmas versus a typical Friday. The Motorola Droid only accounts for about 20% of all Android phones, but nearly half of the app downloads on Christmas day were registered to the device. For whatever reasons, Droid users were the most compelled to try out a new app or game this holiday season.

Other holiday findings from Flurry included:

  • Android Market Growth increased by over 20% in December over November.
  • 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).
