How many apps do you have on your Windows Phone 7?

Or on any other smartphone, for that matter?

I just got a Dell Venue Pro Windows Phone 7, and I was shocked to find out that I actually had more than 5 apps, and 5 games on it!

I had 26 apps, and 18 games loaded.

Looking at the list below, you can see that my kids enjoy gaming on the phone more than I do, and that my apps tend to be boring.

For comparison, @ericsiebert has over 400 apps on his iPhone, @erinathp has about 83, and @theromit has over 45. Meaning I am behind the curve…

What apps do you absolutely have to have on your Windows Phone 7? And what apps do you think I should have that I don’t? You can list them here or send me an email at john.Obeto@absolutevista.com. For once, I’ll let other phone OSs and platforms participate.

Probably heading towards 100 apps. Maybe about 30 games, of which I randomly play once in a blue moon, I guess.

Over the years I've had my iPhone 3G, then my iPhone 4, the actual number of apps I've installed would run closer to 300 - but many of those don't make the cut and end up consigned to just my iTunes library.

Do you sometimes go back to the archived apps, Preston.

Or is relegating them to iTunes akin to sending them to Never-land?

And thank you for commenting.

I have 140 on my iPhone 4. I delete one for each new one I buy. I decided that is all I can remember.

@Richard: What is your breakdown of apps to games?

What are you more likely to add: apps or games?
