Microsoft’s Windows Store has reached an important milestone of 100,000 apps yesterday. This is a impressive feat because it took just over 7 months to reach this point. For comparison, Windows Phone Store took 18 months to have 100,000 apps, so did the Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store took 16 months for the same number of apps.
Thanks for a great \\build! Just passed 100k apps in the Windows Store.
