While we've been talking about the increasing popularity of Google's Android operating system, Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 has managed to garner more than 30,000 apps in its marketplace! Though Microsoft has still got a long way to catch up with Apple and Google, it's evident that Microsoft's App Hub is certainly gaining some ground. Confirming the figures, Microsoft has posted several charts on its blog, showcasing the steady growth of the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace.
Games occupy nearly 17 percent of the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace share. There are some 12,393 free apps, 5152 paid apps with trial and 8701 paid apps. The top five paid apps presently on the Marketplace are Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja, Sonic the HedgeHog 4: Episode 1, Need for Speed Underground and Cro-Mag Rally, all of which are games.
The 30,000 figures may easily be overshadowed by Apple App Store's over 500,000 apps and Android 's 250,000 app numbers. But, the increasing number of apps is a clear indication that Microsoft's new mobile OS is set to take huge strides in near future.
