A number is just that. I get it. But this is what the spin is:
The 100,000 is still fractional to Android and iOS. I know 700,000 apps mean more undiscoverable apps. I know we’re not talking about quality. But from a perception perspective it’s a gap that won’t be bridged soon and will continue to be cited as a flaw of the OS for the next year. And there are still top name apps missing. None has moved me from the platform, but MS has to keep pushing this envelope or the media will keep hitting them over the head with it.
