Default WP7 Just 60 Apps Away From 10,000 Marketplace Apps, Hits That Milestone Faster Than iPhone or Android

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://wmpoweruser.com/60-apps-away-from-10000-marketplace-apps-wp7-to-hit-milestone-faster-than-iphone-or-android/' target='_blank'>http://wmpoweruser.com/60-apps-away...one-or-android/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"The excitement is palpable as the number of apps in the Windows Phone 7 marketplace edge towards 5 figures. </em><a href="http://www.windowsphoneapplist.com/stats/" target="_blank"><em>WindowsPhoneapplists.com</em></a><em> reports nearly 1200 applications have been added in the last 2 weeks, which is an acceleration on the usual 1000, and should guarantee we pass over the 10,000 mark today."</em></p><p><img height="262" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/wpt/auto/1299866665.usr51221.jpg" style="border: #d2d2bb 1px solid;" width="435" /></p><p>This is quite an accomplishment, and definitely bodes well for the future of Windows Phone.&nbsp; Only 4 1/2 months since it was released to the public, and developers have showered us with great applications faster than we could have imagined.&nbsp; I think the smartphone war is going to heat up significantly over the next year or two.</p>

I'm glad that I could do my small part. Last month I published my first app, a game called "Wild Tiles." Yesterday it was ranked #883.

For years, I have written various games and applications for Windows desktop and Windows Mobile, on my own time and for my own amusement. I never seriously considered selling them because I thought it would be too difficult. Windows Marketplace really made the process easy for me!!

That's pretty awesome Rocky.

I hope to join you in the boat. But first I need to learn C#. So it may be a while.

Ha! I wish they were paying me to learn this stuff.

I'm doing it because I like the platform and I hope to make a little extra to help out in these tough times.
