There was a time few months back, when Windows Phone store numbers were not growing that fast and it does look as if apps momentum has ceased for the WP store. But in last two months, we have seen a wave of nice and good quality apps making their way in quick succession to the store. It was easy to see that the app momentum is really building up!!
So now great news coming form a really cool live info graphic posted by MS called “Microsoft by number” that the WP store now has more than 170,000 apps and games.
This is really good to see the apps and games numbers moving faster towards that 200,000 milestone. Though numbers alone don’t tell the full story and there are many quality apps and games addition to store in recent times. There have been some awesome exclusives like “Halo Spartan assault” and many others like “Temple Run”, Voxer, MarketWatch, XFINITY TV Remote, Walgreens and ABC News etc.
In most wanted apps only official Instagram is missing though you have full-featured 3rd party apps like Instance and soon “6tagram” may be yet another great Instagram client. Nokia’s efforts have made many big names like Hipstamatic, Path, Vyclone, SNAPCAM, Panagraph, Yelp, CNN, Foursquare making apps for Lumia 1020. Flipboard & Vine are coming too.
