    I don't check my figures that often but was surprised this morning to see a dramatic and continuing growth in the number of downloads I am getting for my own Windows Phone Apps.

    I am seeing a lot more people with Windows Phones (outside of my own developer circles where it might be expected! ) so I guess this just correlates to that. 

    Either way it bodes well for the platform.

    does this figure normalize with me re-downloading the same app since i upgraded my Surround to Lumia? Because I don't think those counts as I am the existing user.

    anyway, i am seeing a lot more windows phone ads, which is great. I hope they keep up with advertising frequency to maintain its momentum.

    Leaving WM on 5/2018 if no apps, no dedicated billboards where I drive, no Store name.

    Suspect that a download is counted as a download.  Sadly a download is not the same as a sale otherwise things would be even better!

    Hey Ian you are probably aware of this but your story got picked up by WMPoweruser.

    @BitFlipper:That maybe explains why my blog has been hit so much over the last few days!
