Default Windows Store surpasses 35,000 apps

The Windows Phone Store might have surpassed 150,000 apps today, but that isnít the only app store milestone that Microsoft is celebrating. The Windows Store has managed to swell to 35,000 apps in the two months since Microsoft launched Windows 8.

While the Redmond devices and services company hasnít officially confirmed this figure, a number of third-party websites have managed to uncover it through the use of special tools like MetroStore Scanner which crawl the Windows Store. Right now, there are 22,000 apps in the US version of the store and 35,000 apps worldwide.

Windows Phone, by comparison, took roughly a year to break the 35,000 barrier. Itís safe to say that the Windows Store is growing much faster than the competition did. What apps are you looking forward to downloading on Windows 8 or Windows RT? Do you have any favorites so far?
