Windows 8 App Downloads Increasing + Over 5,000 Apps Available
Windows 8 will be unleashed on the general public tomorrow and I thought it would be a good time to review some of the numbers I have been tracking over the last month. Downloads of Windows 8 Apps have been steadily increasing over the last month. Below is screenshot from the App Summary page for my Windows 8 app. The blue line is my app, while the orange line is average for the top 5 apps in that subcategory.

Windows 8 Store App Crash Logs
