All About Windows Phone (AAWP) recently reported that the Windows Phone Marketplace had triumphantly surpassed the 40,000 application mark. IdentityMine is extremely happy to hear the news and is glad to have contributed several applications to the Windows Phone Marketplace (and there is more where that came from). AAWP has a tracking system that found that Windows Phone "content is being added at the rate of 165 items per day. In the last 30 days, 85% of submissions were apps and 15% were games; 68% were free, 23% were paid and 9% were paid with free trial." The Windows Phone platform seems to be a hit with application developers, and with the recent release of Nokia's Lumia devices we can expect the Windows Phone platform to be an even bigger hit with consumers. Just look at one of our previous posts about Microsoft's marketing efforts in New York.
Take a look at the graph below to get an idea of the Windows Phone Marketplace growth rate. Pretty astonishing!
