Select Windows Store apps see 1 million downloads, more overall apps than OS X store

Windows 8 now has more apps than OS X In its two years, Apple has managed to bring OS X’s app store up to 13,000 apps. This means that Windows 8 has almost double the apps of its main desktop rival. Besides the actual number of apps, Windows 8 also has more Store users actively downloading apps right now. The top 300 apps on Windows Store have three times more daily downloads when compared to the top 300 on OS X. Before we get too caught up in all this, it is worth noting that these two stores have some really big differences. The biggest difference is that OS X users have a selection of mainly paid apps, with 84% of the Mac App Store requiring some kind of fee. This means that most OS X users probably only grab a few key paid apps and then never touch the store again. In contrast, Windows 8 is constantly adding new apps and only 14% of them cost anything. As far as pricing is compared? The few Windows 8 apps that do cost seem to be pretty close to the same kind of pricing averages that are seen with OS X. Do you own a Mac and a Windows 8 device?
