Over 100,000 apps have been published to the Windows Phone Marketplace so far
Well, it looks like the Windows Phone camp is seeing some recognition as it appears as though Microsoft’s mobile platform has just surpassed the 100,000 apps mark. Specifically, a report from All About Windows Phone mentions that there have been 100,145 apps published to the Windows Phone Marketplace so far, which is a considerable feat knowing that Apple and Google took 16 and 24 months respectively to reach the 100,000 apps milestones.
Interestingly enough, the 100,145 figure isn’t the exact number for the amount of apps currently available in the Windows Phone Marketplace. Rather, it’s found that 10,357 are no longer there – due to being withdrawn by the Redmond based company or simply by the developer. Moreover, another 1,492 are in limbo, or staging, which means they are either waiting for an update, in beta, or some other unknown reason.
Therefore, the currently tally for available apps in the Windows Phone Marketplace stands at 88,371. Indeed, it’s not a bad figure, even more when it took 14 months to reach the 50,000 apps mark, and another 5 months after that to reach its current tally of 100,000.
