Microsoft posts Dev Center app for Windows Phone, tops 130,000 total apps


Despite launching the Windows Phone Dev Center months ago, Microsoft hasn't provided an option to run the dashboard on Windows Phone itself. The company is at last introducing some logical consistency (and recursion) by launching a Windows Phone version of its Windows Phone developer console. The app lets registered creators track downloads, crashes and feedback without turning to a computer, and a Live Tile can sometimes save the trouble of launching the app in the first place. Having the Dev Center always on hand may be increasingly necessary, based on Microsoft's own figures -- the Windows Phone Store is up to about 130,000 apps, or 10,000 more than it had in December. That's not quite the breakneck pace of other mobile stores, but it's quick enough to justify hitting the download link.
