Microsoft: 160,000 apps in Windows Phone Store Microsoft has announced today that there are now over 160,000 apps in the Windows Phone Store.
Additionally, the software giant has temporarily dropped that annual registration fee paid by all developers who publish in the store to $19 from $99.

The offer is only good for the next 60 days for developers wanting to publish to the Store.

As a relatively new platform, the 160,000 apps is quite a large number but it is small compared to the 800,000 seen in both the iOS App Store and the Google Play Store.

Finally, Microsoft says transaction volumes in the Store has reached 200 million per month and daily revenues have grown 250 percent since launch.

Am I the only one that nearly lost it when they mentioned their sales have only went up by 2.5x's since launch day? So only about twice the people use 8 now as opposed to when it launched 6 months ago? Ha.

No one tries to make a 3rd because there is no point .

Hack a bit, invest a bit, work a bit, jerk a bit
