[WM] Nearly 71,000 apps published in Marketplace

post #1 of 11

There are currently 250 apps being published to Marketplace each day, slightly slower than January, but Marketplace is still on tract to pass the psychological milestone of 100,000 apps by July 2012.

AAWP also notes the spammy category of ebooks have reduced from 14 to 12% of the market, indicating hopefully that Microsoft has gotten on top of the problem and that 8.5% of apps in Marketplace now have a 5 star rating, vs 6.6% 6 weeks ago, possibly indicating that the quality of apps are also improving.

No you freaking didn't just say that.... I guess you don't own an Ipod Touch 4, Iphone 3GS, and Motorola Photon 4G to compare the apps do you? Dude most apps on Android are the same apps you can find on the apple store. Guess what? Did you know I can find a really great calculator app for...FREEE! While EVERYTHING in the apple store cost a dollar even if it is total garbage it cost a dollar... and yes we have a refund button on Android if you don't like the app you fool -_-. I'm not just talking because I use all three devices all the time and carry them around all the time...Can't believe you just went there just to troll. I have never really found an app that I didn't like on my Android yet and if something went wrong with it I could refund it... easy... on my apple Device well ha ha ha... you are stuck case closed no refund.

Wow someone needs a serious dose of valium... On a related note, this is awesome. I'm loving the progress that wp7 is showing thumb.gif

No point in releasing apps if adoption rate for the phones is so piss poor..

A large portion of the ones on Android are pretty worthless. But it's FAR better than whats available on iOS.

I am extremely excited to see how WP does. I'll be happy to leave my 4s for a WP based phone. I'm tired of being limited by Apple.

I'm tempted to hop over into the WP territory. I love how its interface is designed, it's a breath of fresh air from iOS and Android (Both of which copy each other all the time).
