Windows Phone 7 Marketplace Now has 20,000 Apps

Microsoft is seeing some decent growth in the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace. Over the last few days the total number of approved apps has hit 20,000. At the time of writing this there are 20237 apps in the Marketplace and out of those, 1174 are currently inactive. We also lean from wp7applist that 48% of those are free and that the average price of an app is $1.44.

Other details show that in May there was a huge peak in the rate of growth and that over the months, there’s been a steady growth in the number of approved developers which now stands just above the 6000 mark.

Although Windows Phone 7 seems to be moving quite slow, it is still growing at about the same rate as Apple when it first reached it’s 20,000 app mark. However, there’s still a long way to go to catch up to Android and iOS for the device.

Expect to see the rate of growth continue to increase over the coming months and years.
