Millions of men, woman and children awoke on December 25th to find a smartphone or tablet under their Christmas tree. After opening these gifts, users are typically quick to fire up their new devices and download the most popular apps. Keith Shepherd, founder of Imangi Studios, announced on Wednesday that the company’s Temple Run game saw unprecedented attention on Christmas Day. The executive revealed on his Twitter page that the Indiana Jones-esque “runner” game was downloaded more than 1 million times on iOS, more than 1 million times on Android and over 500,000 times on Amazon’s Appstore during the 24-hour period. Earlier this year, Temple Run was the top free and top grossing app on Apple’s (AAPL) App Store with over 40 million downloads and 7 million daily active users.
