Windows Phone Store now with over 300,000 apps Microsoft has confirmed that its Windows Phone Store now has over 300,000 apps and games with "hundreds more" being added on a daily basis.
The company hit its last milestone, 200,000, in December 2013, so the growth rate has certainly increased in the last year.

Windows Phone is still missing many of the more popular iOS and Android apps, but the gap has been closing. Both of the bigger stores have over 1 million apps and games and are priorities for developers.

Yet no F'ING CANDY CRUSH!

Windows apps while often better than the Android counterpart, are few and far between still.

300,000 nonsense and useless apps for the most part.
