At the moment, it seems that there are 130,892 apps in the Windows Store, which represents an increase of 1,959 apps in just one week. Slowly but steadily we are approaching soon half a million apps. But it’s pretty hard to keep up with so many new launches, and that’s why our job here is to keep you reading only the best Windows 8 apps that we discover.
