Like clockwork, the Marketplace for Windows Phone has hit 7,000 apps. Not bad for being just three and half months after launch, no? The last milestone was on January 11th meaning we're just over that two-week average that Microsoft is real good at maintaining (see the other dates here).
And yup. We're gonna keep doing this till we hit 10,000 at which point we'll only report on...we dunno...every 5,000 new apps. Cool?
But serious question: What are your thoughts on quality of the software these days? We really like all the 2.x app updates we're seeing more live tiles and generally we're happy with the way things are going. But of course we also see room for improvement, like anyone else. Sound off in comments.
