Default Microsoft officially confirms Windows Phone’s 80,000 app milestone

Last week, multiple outlets reported that Microsoft had passed the 80,000 app mark in its Windows Phone Marketplace. Of course, it’s not official until the Redmond software giant officially confirms the figure, which it did on Monday in a blog post by Terry Myerson, the Corporate Vice President of the Windows Phone Division.

According to Microsoft, approximately 300 new apps are added to the Windows Phone Marketplace every day. The Marketplace itself will soon span 63 countries—right now, it’s sitting at 54. The recently released Nokia Lumia 900 has been very well received, but a common complaint is that some popular apps have yet to reach the Windows Phone platform. Thankfully, this generally isn’t too big of a problem, since Windows Phone has some great alternatives to these missing apps. Of course, with the Lumia 900’s current popularity, Windows Phone’s app selection is sure to increase even more in the coming weeks and months.

Are you satisfied with Windows Phone’s current app offering?
