My good buddy Wes Miller is doing a valuable public service on behalf of the Windows 8 community.
On his site WinAppUpdate.com, he’s keeping track of how many apps are available in the Microsoft store.
From his site today:
As of today, the Windows Store has 3,610 Windows Store apps available for purchase or free download. This is a non-trivial increase, and I’ve been seeing an average of 118 apps per day, but it ebbs and flows. Nothing so far matches the huge increase seen on 9/13, but during three days of the last week, over 240 apps hit the store each day. Charted with the earlier data, here is the result:
…Pretty strong growth. If you trend that out, the Windows Store will indeed be at over 5,000 apps by launch day.
118 apps a day isn’t bad for an OS that nobody has really heard of.
I’ll keep you posted as the count changes…
