With still less than 1000 apps in marketplace, the service has already seen some second order analysis, beyond just the number of apps in the store.
Numaris, who makes 3 apps in the Marketplace (Speeddial, Jotto and Number Slide) have done all of the hard work of counting the number of app, and have the results presented on their website here.
They reveal that, like in other stores, games dominate the marketplace, and that paid apps outnumber the free ones, yet most are only $0.99.
They also reveal Shazam, the music ID app, is the highest rated app, with a score of 9.25/10 out of 75 votes, with Netflix not far behind.
The Silverlight site also reveals marketplace already has 3 tip calculators. Do we really need any more?
Play around with the figures at Numaris here.
Thanks Dariel for the tip.
