Windows Phone Marketplace offers up more than 50,000 apps

Although it isn't quite the size of the App Store or the Android Market just yet, Microsoft's Windows Phone Marketplace has just passed the 50,000 apps mark. 

At the time of this post's publication, the Marketplace has 50,126 submitted apps. I say submitted because there are about 6,000 apps less than that currently available, possibly due to deletions by either Microsoft or the original publisher. 

Still, the average app additions per day has risen to 265. And in the past 90 days, there has been 17,276 new apps added. That's pretty impressive, but it wasn't to be unexpected; after all, WP7 has sold better in its first year than Android did, so the popularity and demand for Microsoft's mobile OS has been fairly high, resulting in the 50,000 apps that have been written for it.

I hope to see WP7 expand even further in 2012, before Windows Phone 8 "Apollo" is released.
