So just in case you missed it somewhere down the line, I left Windows Phone about 3 years ago out of frustration and started another site, AlliOSNews. Now I like iOS but it isn’t magical. I like the iPhone 5s as well but again, it isn’t magical. To me, the magic was in Windows Phone. But there was a glaring hole in the platform and that would be the app store. When I left a few years ago there were less than 25,000 apps in the app store. That was at a time when Apple was pushing some 300,000. Yeah, it puts it into perspective that the Windows Phone Store has just now hit the 300K marker.
As I wrote in my first post here a couple of weeks ago, there were two main reasons I came back to the Windows Phone community (besides missing all you peeps of course!). One was the improvements that Microsoft had made in Windows Phone 8.0 and 8.1 and the second was the Windows Phone Store was finally getting the attention it need from big developers.
