Windows "More than 100,000 applications have now been published in the Windows Phone Marketplace and new content is currently being added at the rate of 313 applications per day. At the time of writing, 100,145 applications have been published. Of these, 26,493 were added in the last three months and 9,391 were added in the last month. These applications come from just over 23,825 different publishers." Is there anybody out there who still places any value on these numbers, whether they be for Android, iOS, or WP7? Considering virtually all Android, iOS, and WP7 applications are useless, ugly, buggy crap (with only a few being somewhat tolerable - never actually good, because good software doesn't exist), I honestly don't really care. But hey, another check mark on the list of PR talking points.

What's 100,000 apps compared to the millions for Android and iOS? They're way, way behind.

Seriously, it doesn't matter. Most people use a handful of apps (Facebook, Twitter, banking, finance, news) and a few games. Nearly all of the most essential apps are already present on the WP7 App Store. So, really, whether or not WP7 has XYZZY-New-App is irrelevant.
