Microsoft has affirmed that, as of September 30, 2014, the total number of Modern UI-based applications in both its Windows Phone Store and its Windows Store have arrived at and crossed over in excess of 500,000.
The turning point was initially noted by Microsoft quietly on its By The Numbers page. Venture Beat got some extra information by means of a Microsoft representative, who expressed, “There are more than 527,000 apps in the Windows and Windows Phone Stores combined.” About 187,000 applications are accessible in the Windows Store, as per Microsoft, and the Windows Phone Store now has around 340,000 applications. The store crossed the 300,000 application point of reference in August.
These numbers take a swing at something of a defining moment for Microsoft regarding application improvement. The Microsoft has officially proclaimed plans for only one application store for the promising new mobile and PC launch of Windows 10. It’s additionally attempting to get developers to make widespread applications that will permit users to buy a Windows Phone application and get the Windows 8 version for free of charge, and the other way around.
Will we see more Modern-based applications once Microsoft dispatches a universal store for those applications?
