Microsoft was the last to join the party app stores with windows 8, debuting a month ago a platform that allows users to download tools such as on their mobile phones, but for the computer. Apple has spent nearly two years doing the same for its OS X operating system, however, was quickly overtaken by people in Redmond.
Because according to the independent analyst firm Distimo, the Windows Store already has about 21,000 applications , far outpacing the mac App Store has 13,000. Moreover, if we take the 300 most popular titles in each of the two stores, we see that the volume of downloads in the Windows Store is three times larger than its competition.
Furthermore, the fact that 84% of the tools in the App Store are payment allows the purchase of tools is five times larger in the ecosystem, in relation to a competition where the market has 86% of applications free.
So, Distimo says that the launch of the Windows Store was the largest ever seen, in terms of milestones surpassing all other app stores during its inception.App Store, Apple, Distimo, mac, Mac App Store, Mac OS X, Microsoft, OS X, store windows, windows, Windows 8
