The rate at which developers are submitting apps to the Windows Store has picked up after slowing earlier in the year.
This store is the source of all the software that can run on tablets running Windows RT. Devices with Windows 8 can access them as well, through the Start Screen.
The store opened last fall, and submissions were fairly strong for a time, but then slowed last winter to the point where only about 140 apps were being submitted per day, according to MetroStore Scanner.
Developers have picked up the pace considerably since then, and in June are averaging 580 apps per day.
The total number of titles in the Windows Store is over 97,000.
The dearth of good, third-party software has reduced interest in tablets running Windows RT like the Microsoft Surface RT. With the numbers creeping up, as well as the upcoming release of Windows 8.1 RT, there might be more interest shown.
