If “lack of apps” is the main reason why you haven’t switched to Windows Phone yet, it won’t be an excuse for much longer. It has just been reported that Microsoft’s mobile operating system’s app store, the Windows Marketplace, has broken yet another milestone hitting the 60,000 apps available mark today. A pretty impressive feat considering that the store hit 50,000 25 days ago.
While it still has a long way to go before it hits Android’s 400,000+ or Apple’s half a million apps, it’s still very promising for a platform that’s not even two years old. At this rate it should hit the first 100,000 before the end of the year. What apps would you like to see available on the Windows Marketplace?
