Microsoft’s Windows Phone Marketplace has now reached 15,000 applications.

Marketplace trackers windowsphoneapplist.com is currently tracking 15,054 apps in the U.S. Marketplace. WP7applist is tracking 14,895 applications and explains 957 of them are inactive, 39% are available for free and the average price is $1.73 per paid application. Microsoft’s Windows Phone Marketplace is growing at an impressive rate. The software giant added 3,000 applications in April alone after reaching its 12,000 milestone in late March. WP7applist says that 155 apps are updated on average each day. In the last 24 hours, 75 apps were updated and 81 were added.

Luigi Violin, who founded WP7applist, says he expects the Marketplace to reach 30,000 applications in time for its birthday in October. “If I had to make an exact average of daily new releases, the Marketplace should hit 25K in the first days of October, but as the trend is slightly increasing I’d guess we’ll be well over 30K,” he said in an email statement to WinRumors. “It’s still growing at a nice rate, and even at a noticeable increasing rate lately so it really looks in full shape,” he added.

That's a nice milestone. Though I don't know the quality of the applications(compared to Apple's App Store apps), but it sounds good so far.

I'm surprised they got so many so quickly, as you say not sure what they are like though.

Also, I hope Microsoft are taking good actions in ensuring these applications will not damage their consumers PC.
