Windows Phone Marketplace hits 100,000 published apps Although their devices control just 3 percent of the global market, devs are flocking to the Marketplace, which has now seen its 100,000th app published.
AAWP says apps are being published at a rate of 313 per day.

Over the last three months, alone, 26,493 apps have been added. Overall, 23,825 different publishers have submitted apps.

Of the over 100,000 published, there are 88,371 apps live (available for download, across 60 countries).

Surprisingly, the market hit the milestone faster than Android did but slower than iOS.

AAWP also notes that "it took Windows Phone 14 months to reach 50,000 apps, but only another 5 months to double that figure to 100,000. The 50,000 app mark was reached on December 27th, 2011, the 60,000 mark on January 22nd, 2012, the 70,000 mark on February 23rd, and the 80,000 milestone on March 26th, the 90,000 milestone on April 30th. It has taken an additional 33 days to reach the 100,000 mark."
