My friend Wes Miller from WindowsAppUpdate is reporting that the number of apps available in the Windows Store has risen to 7873.

An excerpt:

As of today, there are 7,873 Windows Store apps available worldwide. Of these, 88% (6,964) are free – mirroring the percentages first seen much earlier this month. The number of apps added per day has been rather significant, and includes 459 apps worldwide that have been added since I polled yesterday.

Almost all applications are available in both x86 and x64 architectures. Only two apps appear to solely target Windows RT (ARM), 31 target only Windows 8 x64 and don’t have Windows 8 x86 or Windows RT  support.

Not bad at all.

Windows 8 will be released with about 8000 apps.

I will be interested to see how many apps are available in January of 2013. That will be the really pertinent and interesting stat.
