Windows 8 Store hits 100,000 apps

The Inquirer spreads word that Microsoft's Windows 8 Store now houses a whopping 100,000 apps. The Windows Store has seen a remarkable growth since its launch seven months ago, it took Apple around 14 months to get 100,000 iPad specific apps into the iTunes Store, while it took Google 18 months to hit the 100,000 in its Android store.
However, it's worth noting that not all 100,000 Windows 8 apps are particularly high quality, and Winbeta notes that there are "numerous" apps that are little more than spam.

The website said, "As I monitor the Windows Store on a daily basis for new app releases, I am surprised to see so many useless apps being approved in large quantities. Why is Microsoft approving these apps? Is the race to have so many apps in the Windows Store such a big priority for the software giant?"

There are also still many big name apps missing from the Windows Store, including Microsoft's own Office suite.
