Tablets demand love too! 50,000 apps are now available for the Microsoft Surface tablet
In order to spur the development of new apps, which we all know makes a device more attractive to the consumer, Microsoft is offering developers $100 for each app submitted to both the Windows Store and the Windows Phone Store. There is a limit though, as the Redmond based software giant has a cap at 10 apps per OS for a total of $2,000. And Mister Softy, as the company is called on Wall Street because of the MSFT ticker symbol, is giving developers a full 10% higher revenue split at 80%/20% than what they earn with iOS or Android.
