Windows and Windows Phone app stores combined now feature over 400,000 apps25
In addition to that statistical update, Microsoft can now also brag about having over 14 million daily app downloads (combined for the Windows and Windows Phone stores), a growth figure that developers will definitely be glad to hear about.
Windows Phone has established itself as the third-largest ecosystem, but it still has a lot of catching up to do with the dominant iOS and Android ecosystems. Both the Apple App Store and Google’s Play Store feature over 1 million applications, four times more than the 250,000 apps available for Microsoft’s mobile platform.
We expect to hear more updates on Windows Phone stats during the keynote, so stay tuned.
