Apple revealed this week at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas that App Store customers spent over $10 billion in 2013, with $1 billion of that total paid out in the month of December.
"We'd like to thank our customers for making 2013 the best year ever for the App Store," said Apple's senior vice president of Internet Software and Services Eddy Cue.
"The line-up of apps for the holiday season was astonishing and we look forward to seeing what developers create in 2014."
Apple gave special mention of the biggest hits of the year including the games Heads Up, Impossible Road, Candy Crush Saga, Puzzles & Dragons, Minecraft, QuizUp, and Clumsy Ninja.
The company also said that App developers have earned $15 billion to-date since the launch of its App Store in 2008.
