Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 Marketplace Continues To Grow

According to one report, Microsoft’s app store known as the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace may now have 25,000 applications. In comparison to Apple’s App Store, this figure may not sound like much.

The Windows Phone App List claims the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace has 25,076 applications. According to WP7applist, however, the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace only has 24,878 applications, and 4,044 of those applications are “inactive.” Regardless, one thing is clear: the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace is growing.

When Microsoft launched Windows Phone 7 last year, the marketplace had only 1,000 applications. By March, the store had reached 11,500 applications. Although the Windows Phone 7 platform may not have as many applications as iOS or Android, Microsoft has repeatedly focused on quality over quantity.

I am amazed people care about how many 10's or 100's of thousands of apps are available. I would rather have a small marketplace of quality apps to browse through than some over bloated market of crap.

I have to totally agree with you JimmyJamesRoS. So it is nice to hear that Microsoft is concerned about quality over quantity. I know with Android there are usually at least 10 Apps that do the same thing some better than others.

The thing that really gets me about these huge app markets is I have an android and do not just browse the market. I usually need something specific or hear about a specific app and go download it. I do not browse and look for something unless I need or want it. As I said when this is true I look around to see what the most applicable and solid app is for what I am wanting.
