Microsoft Windows Phone Platform Supports 10 Million Transactions and 500 Apps per Day

Instagram and Waze just entered the fold of the Microsoft Windows Phone 8. This filled a gap that had long been present at Microsoft. Microsoft's Michael Stroh announced this addition officially on Windows Phone blog. He said, "I’m happy to announce that Instagram and Waze are now available in the Store for Windows Phone 8."

Bill Gates’ empire recently issued a report on its growth figures. The Windows Phone platform has been the site of three billion downloads. While this is a large sum, it is dwarfed by iOS’s 60 billion downloads. Ten million application transactions take place on a daily basis. 

That adds up to about 300 million per month. In September, the rate was 9 million per day and way back in June it was just 6.66 million. Some progress has therefore been made since then. Then there are the 500 odd applications which are snapped up each and every day

The Windows Phone 8 has been launched and is a litmus test for the conglomerate. The monthly paid application revenue shot up to 181% since its inception. The time period that has elapsed in the past year has also boosted application downloads by up to 290%. While this does not match with some other hefty figures of more successful ventures, it is in its own way satisfactory. 

Microsoft is making progress bit by bit and does not necessarily need to keep up with the Joneses. The impetus and initiative is there for a move towards future times that will be better than today. The only sure thing is that there is cause for hope provided hard work is done in the present.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
