The Next Web notes, via WinAppUpdate, that there are now more than 10,000 apps in the Windows 8 store, being added at a rate of 500 per day.

This rate is likely to increase exponentially as the number of Windows 8 PCs, already expected to be more than 4 million in number, rapidly increases over the next few weeks, and developers see more opportunities.

Microsoft has also announced at BUILD that the official replacement for Metro-style apps will be ‘Windows 8 Store Applications’ which is a rather typically uncool but descriptive Microsoft nomenclature.

Has any actually cool applications hit the Windows 8 store recently? Let us know below.
