    If this is impressive how what words can they use to describe Rim's bb10 app count on the day of release?

    Windows Store passed 40,000 apps today, growth moderating

    "Thus, today is the day when the Windows Store hit the 40, 000 apps mark, with 158 apps above that threshold, to be precise, which is a bit short of what Microsoft was expecting, but still an impressive growth nonetheless, compared to all other application stores in the three months after their initial launch.*"

    Doesn't look like that is the case, according to the article. I don't think they're experiencing the growth they were hoping for.

    Good God! Can you say, 'Smoked by BlackBerry 10!!!!!!!!!!"??
    And yet they're saying, "Well, that's pretty impressive! ". Then they'll turn around and say, "well, how can BlackBerry hope to compete with the 700,000 apps of Android and iphone, and the Impressive Growth of Windows 8?".
    We'll see who's suckin' canal water!!!!!!!!!!
    Why 10? 'Cause it's 10 X as good, 10 X as productive, 10 X as much fun, 10 X as...

    Trying to develope for that platform is a huge pain in the arse. The approval process is long and cumbersome if they deny it. A few other developers got fed up and left after being denied for no real reason Microsoft gave no help to resolve it.

    The tools are horrible from Microsoft and why I am not even bothering for the platform.

    It does, at least. This is about Windows, not WP.

    I thought they had an android app player. I know I read a story a few months ago about them getting a pile of android apps. I think it was for the desktop but I figured it would end up on the phone as well.
