Are 125,000 Windows Phone applications enough?

WP Applications

Microsoft Windows Phone platform has been playing the catch game to iOS and Android for a while, but still hasn't caught up in terms of total marketplace apps.

All About Windows Phone (AAWP) reported today that the Windows Phone Marketplace has topped 125,000 published applications, a drop in the bucket compared to Android's 500,000, or the more than 700,000 apps in Apple's iTunes store.

The store has grown since its inception in February 2011, and even more once Microsoft's Windows Phone 8 was announced in June, when about 100,000 apps were available to the smartphone owners. Now there are at least 126,530, according to AAWP, which said that new content is being added to the marketplace at a rate of 215 apps per day.
