2014 was a record-breaking year for Apple's app store.
The tech behemoth announced Thursday that billings rose 50 percent and apps generated over $10 billion in revenue for developers last year.
And what's more, that strength is continuing in 2015. Apple said billings from the app store set a weekly record for the first week of January, with customers spending nearly half a billion dollars on apps and in-apps purchases.
New Year's Day 2015 marked the single biggest day ever in app store sales history, according to the company.
"This year is off to a tremendous start after a record-breaking year for the app store and our developer community," said Eddy Cue, Apple's senior vice president of Internet software and services.
"We're so proud of the creativity and innovation developers bring to the apps they create for iOS users and that the developer community has now earned over $25 billion," he said in a statement.
