Windows Phone apps hits the 20,000 mark

Microsoft recently approved over 1,200 apps, bringing the total current number of Windows Phone app on the Windows Phone Marketplace to 20,000.

Last week, at the launch of Windows Phone Mango, Microsoft announced that it had 18,000 applications in the Windows Phone Marketplace. This growth rate shows that Microsoft is doing well with its app momentum.

Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 Marketplace has taken 219 days to reach 20,000 apps since launch. Apple’s iPhone App Store took 215 days and Google’s Android store took 419 days.

According to Tom Warren of Winrumors;

Windows Phone 7 launched on October 26 with 1,000 applications available. Six months later and the platform has increased impressively. Microsoft appears to be building up a good momentum amongst application developers. Microsoft says it now has over 32,000 Windows Phone application developers, who deliver an average of 100 new apps per day. The Windows Phone Developer Tools have now been downloaded more than one million times.
