Last week the Windows Store passed the 100,000 apps frontier, underlining strong app momentum for Windows 8. New top apps are coming to the Windows Store each day including OpenTable, Rhapsody, Rockmelt, Time Out and Vevo. We’re also excited about partners that are committed to building for the platform such as Facebook, Flipboard, Foursquare and new titles from Disney.

The Windows Phone Store today counts +160,000 apps, including all your favorite apps, plus some exclusives.

Thanks to the Microsoft developer community in Belgium both Stores also include a variety of local must have apps – the crème the la crème of which can be found in Johan Peeters’ Belgian tiles app (download here for Windows 8 | Windows Phone).

Today we’re kicking off a series of blog posts to highlight new additions to the Store, made exclusively by app builders in Belgium. Here we go!
