Windows Store now serves 4 million app downloads daily

During the Mobile World Congress, Microsoft revealed that the Windows Store now serves four million app downloads daily.  As TechCrunch points out, the Windows Store has grown by 134.6% in app downloads since October 2013. That’s more than 100% growth in less than six months. Comparatively, the Apple App Store averaged 5.5 to 6 million app downloads daily just last year. As of March 2nd, there are 146,813 apps in the Windows Store. While the Windows Store still has a ways to go, this four million app downloads figure is promising and shows that Microsoft can deliver an enticing platform for developers to create apps.
