Windows Phone 8.1 Store

Microsoft has just updated its "by the numbers" page to represent that the Windows Phone Store has surpassed the 300,000 app milestone. That's a hefty number, and even more exciting considering that Microsoft reported it had 200,000 apps on offer back in December of 2013 — at this rate of growth who knows what the app catalog could look like by the end of the year.

With most leading apps now available on the platform, and the back catalog of more obscure apps filling up (as evidenced by this newly-announced 300,000 number), it makes you feel a bit more positive about the direction the Windows Phone Store is headed. Download all of the apps!
