It seems every time I turn around Windows Phone Marketplace is hitting another landmark figure for apps in their store. This time it’s the 40,000 apps mark.
This trend does not show any signs of slowing down, apps are being add at a rate of 165 a day! This mean that every two months another 10,000 apps will be added.
While the Windows Phone Marketplace is not huge like the Android store or Apple’s App store..Really how many apps do you need? (Look down at your phone…I know it’s right there check it out, how many apps do you have on it?)
This rate of growth of the Marketplace is nothing but good news for Nokia, Microsoft, and the consumer. These days consumers will not buy phones that don’t have certain core apps and at the 40K mark you as a consumer you are pretty well assured your favorite app is there.
