Well that didn’t take long. Nice to see a number with 5 zeros after struggling with 3 and 4 zero numbers from the WP Marketplace these past two years. And that’s not all. ARMED!, a Windows Phone game passed 200,000 downloads as of October 30th, a mere five days after Windows 8 & Windows 8 RT was launched. Calc4Win, another app that I have downloaded, also has seen 80,000 downloads since launch.
With millions of new Windows 8 users coming online every day, the potential for growth is unprecedented. And if the big players don’t see that through their iBlinders, then I don’t know what to say. Sure, these are all FREE, but apps like ArcSoft ShowBiz, YouTube RT and Clever Photo are all beginning to draw attention. A Game, Twitter or Productivity app for 0.99 that hits the right nerve will turn into some serious earning opportunity in no time. How can anyone “not” realize the potential.
