1000 Windows Phone Apps Thumb.png Microsoft may be behind Apple and Google in terms of apps submitted per day, though the company announced that the Windows Store across its desktop and mobile operating systems broke 1,000 apps.

With Windows Phone 8 bringing simultaneous app development across the flagship operating systems, we’re have reason to be hopefuly.

Yeah, Skype for Windows Phone 8 is arriving

If you’re worried about Microsoft’s operating systems not getting the developer support, the company is keen to say that isn’t the case. It announced the Windows Store, covering Windows 8 even though it isn’t publicly available, broke 1,000 apps.

The version of Windows 8 signals the operating system is finished temporarily. It is being rolled out this month, accompanying release in August, to partners including IT organizations and developers notable. If you’re a TechNet subscribers you can also get your hand on the build, and you’ll be paying around $120 for basically Microsoft’s products. IT’s good value if you’re going to get the use.

Microsoft released the release to manufacturing (RTM) build last month, signalling the operating system is now available to developers and IT organizations notably IT’s not being rolled out to the public until October, though if you’re a TechNet subscriber you can pay around $120 a year for basically all of Microsoft’s program and the crucial RTM build of Windows 8. IT’s good value for money if you get regular use of of Microsoft’s programs.

Get Ready For Support – Desktop Apps And Modern UI Apps

Exactly 1,004 are available in the Windows Store; desktop apps and Modern UI apps are available from the store and included in the findings, so Microsoft isn’t fragmenting the operating system by offering two types of apps. Of course the experience will be different, though that’s a different discussion.

Windows 8 launches October 26 so we’re still waiting on how the operating system perosm when it releases. Microsoft is pushing developer support for Winodws hard. It wants developer to be behind Modern UI, considering it’s revolutionary move away from the classic Windows experien — the experience you’ll still find in the desktop environment of Windows 8. Personally, I’ll be embracing Metro and see how Microsoft refines the operating system throughout its life. I’m betting support won’t be going away anytime soon; in fact, I’ll bank on it.
