The Windows Store had 1.7 million app downloads per day in October


Last month Microsoft released their first major update to Windows 8. One of the apps that has received the biggest makeover is the Windows Store. It has a brand new look and feel, and even some handy new settings like the ability to auto update apps. How have these changes affected downloads?

According to Microsoft’s numbers the Windows Store has generated 1.7 million app downloads per day in October. That is a 38% increase since June. In total there were 51 million app downloads in October (around 97% were free apps). Obviously Windows 8.1, the new Store, and new apps for 8.1 (like Facebook) have helped downloads. The real question will be how long does this last?

Have you downloaded more apps from the Windows Store lately?
