Windows 8 Store Has Three Times as Many Downloads as Mac App Store

New data shows that Windows 8’s Store is growing bigger quickly

There are approximately 20,000 apps available in the Windows Store right now, but download statistics clearly make everybody working for Microsoft smile.

According to a report released by research firm Distimo, the Windows 8 Store has three times more downloads than Apple’s very own Mac App Store.

Several publishers are already pretty popular among Windows 8 users, including Rovio, Google and Wikipedia, Distimo’s report shows.

“Looking at the first findings about the Windows Store it is clear that there is a lot of potential. This is not only because the number of potential customers will quickly grow because of the reach of Windows, but also because Microsoft seems to have copied a few best practices from its competitors and implemented them well,” it is mentioned in the report.
