Congratulations Microsoft. According to MetroStore Scanner, there are currently 50,304 apps available from the Windows Store now. There has been an average of about 279 apps developed daily in March alone. In fact, March is the first month in quite a while that saw an increase in app development. Since November, app development had been on a sharp decline.
Microsoft is offering developers $100 per app they develop for Windows 8 or Windows Phone 8. They can develop up to 10 apps per OS for a total of $2000. The contest began on March 8th, and will end on June 30th. There will only be 10,000 apps accepted.
Microsoft is also offering developers a 80% split for revenue generated by their apps. That’s 10% more than what Apple and Android offers. This is a great way to get even more apps in the store.
