Following a record-breaking 50 per cent rise in billings in 2014, Apple’s App Store has enjoyed a flying start to the new year, with Apple today announcing record figures for the first week of January.Customers around the world spent nearly half a billion US dollars on apps and in-app purchases during the week, with New Year’s Day marking the single biggest day ever in App Store sales history.

Meanwhile, 2014 saw over US$10 billion in revenue generated for developers.

Apple said last year’s introduction of iOS 8 “gave developers the ability to create amazing new apps”, offering “innovative features which proved wildly popular with App Store customers around the world”.

The release of iOS 8 saw the introduction of the new programming language Swift, along with Metal, a graphics technology created to maximise the performance of the A7 and A8 chips, with the HealthKit and HomeKit frameworks, respectively designed for health and fitness and home automation.

To date, Apple states App Store developers have earned a cumulative US$25 billion from the sale of apps and games.
