I almost didn’t feel like posting this this year because I don’t see it as that insightful to developers.  I mean, sure it’s great to know how the App Store is performing in terms of the spikes that historically occur over Christmas up until the New Years, but the truth is – this time around, it wasn’t as dramatic as it has been in the past.  Thanks to the folks at Flurry for sharing the stats with us. As seen in the chart above the growth rate from 2012-2013 compared to 2011-2013 is substantially less.  A mere 25% YOY Growth in Average December Downloads and 11% YOY Growth in...
