Now more than 13,000 apps in the Windows 8 store

imageThe Windows 8 Store is growing apace, with WinAppUpdate declaring that yesterday there was 12,895 apps in the store, and presumably more than 13,000 today.

The store is currently growing at around 362 apps per day, a bit slower than a week ago, when it was closer to 500 per day, but this may have been the BUILD effect, with developers polishing their apps with the latest advice.

New apps include a Slacker App for Windows 8 and the Shazam app amongst the latest entrants.

Hopefully the slow-down is just transient, as what the store really needs is an acceleration to reach a respectable 6 figure number as soon as possible. Hopefully recent success stories such as 100,000 downloads by Metrotwit and 200,000 by ARMED will serve to do just that.
