Recently sites have been noting that the Windows Phone marketplace has passed the 50,000 apps mark. Ironically enough it comes at a time where we’ve seen tech bloggers and posters point out the relatively small number of apps the marketplace has compared to iOS and Android.
What often is overlooked or is failed to be mentioned is that the Windows Phone marketplace is growing at a pace that either matches or exceeds both iOS and Android.
We saw a spike in apps with the added capabilities given to developers and there are still a lot of areas the marketplace can be filled out with the current capabilities. Augmented reality apps haven’t been as prominent as I once thought, for one.
When you add in the fact that 2012 will bring yet another set of expanded capabilities the future is bright and expanding. Say what you will but that is nothing but good news.
