Developers can now get their Windows Phone 7 app download stats from Microsoft

Quick word to our readers who are also developers for Windows Phone 7: you evidently can now grab your download stats for your application from Microsoft's APP-HUB website.

For context, recently a few developers became vocal at the lack of analytic tools available to them regarding app downloads. In turn, they did not know if their app was selling and as a result, whether they should invest time and money for "push" services. Microsoft had been candid with developers in this regard, noting that payments and these tools will come "later" understood to be February. Perhaps in response, it looks like Microsoft may have decided to get those tools out now.
