- Windows Phone Marketplace
The published applications in the Windows Phone Marketplace are already over 60 000 according to a recently published statistic. This means, that less than one month (25 days to be exact) were needed for the Marketplace to grow from fifty to sixty thousand apps (which means 400 apps were uploaded daily), whereas it took 40 days to get from forty to fifty thousand (265 apps per day). This means, that Microsoft’s platform is actually very popular, at least for developers, and now has the third largest Appstore (after iOS and Android, of course). It’s another story with the quality of the applications, but that’s something no one can judge objectively and is actually more or less an issue with every application store out there. B. A.
