Windows Phone Marketplace has over 125,000 apps
Good news for Microsoft just before the release of its next mobile platform, Windows Phone 8. The last count of apps in the Marketplace disclosed that there are currently more than 125,000 apps – and increasing – although there are only 113,170 ready to download right now from 60 countries.
It has been a long and interesting developments in just over two years when the operating system went from 2000 Applications to this remarkable figure, despite having a higher growth rate than the App Store sometime this speed was reduced and reversing the trend ended. Keep growing faster than Google Play, anyway.
A constant theme is troubling on any platform downloadable material quality: According AAWP figures, 13.8% of the total number of apps are considered “quality” in markets like the U.S.. This refers to applications evaluated at least 5 times with 4 or more stars.
Of the applications, 69% are free, 22% is paid and payment is 10% but provides a useful trial to assess whether or not we want to acquire.
