I have been thinking about buying a Windows Phone more and more lately, but there is something really bothering me. Looking at this it seems like the amount of apps available on Windows Phones is ridiculously low compared to Android and iOS.
What do you (already owning a WP) think? Are you satisfied by the amount of apps already available? Did you find something useful for the tasks you were looking to have accomplished?
And most important question: Should the few apps prevent me from buying a WP?
I don't have a WP yet - currently using WebOS and a Blackberry for work and planning to switch to the Nokia 710 on T-Mobile - and from quickly looking at my must have apps, it's all available on WP and more from it's 50k+ growing collection. The chart shows way more apps on blackberry then WP and yet I feel that BB app store absolutely suck (prices are also too high)...so don't look at the #s, bur rather what apps you want. On WebOS which has just a few thousand apps, it has *almost* everything for me so a million apps or just a hundred doesn't matter unless it has what you want.
Keep in mind too that games are considered apps, and iOS has a ton of those, along with farting apps.
If T-Mobile had the iPhone, the decision for me would solely come down to Windows Phone or the iPhone only.
WP is not bad...of course Android have many more apps availables. I started "work" some month ago with Visual Studio to "try" do some easy app....)))). Finally i have a HTC Diamond 6.1 and one LG GM750 and they work fine. If somebody use Visual Studio i woul like condivide experience with him!! Just i made some calendars apps: http://www.freeapps-pocketpc.com/index.php?cat_id=7
To finish, maybe i will buy a Iphone but...In someway i like Windows Phone. Bye))
