    When working on the Reinstaller review I was a little surprised how many app's I've purchased since Windows Phone hit the market back in 2010. For those not familiar, Reinstaller compiles a list of all the app's associated with your Windows Live ID and then helps walk you through the installation process.

    I knew I had a healthy number of apps but still I couldn't help but say "good grief" when the final tally hit 678. Other numbers shake out with Rich Edmonds having 199 apps and Dan Rubino tops the charts with 1,078! Granted we go through apps at a faster pace due to the nature of our work but we started to think how many apps you guys and gals have. One thought led to another and a giveaway was born.

    We'll give whomever has the largest list of apps a $50 gift certificate to the WPCentral Accessory Store. Just download Reinstaller, go through the steps to create your app list, take a screen shot or photograph of your Windows Phone showing the number of apps and post it here.

    Let's keep it honest so don't go out this afternoon and download a few thousand free apps to your phone. We'll cut things off this Sunday, February 19, 2012 and put up a braggin' rights post on the 20th.

    I'll be really curious if anyone tops Dan's number.

    Dang, that's a lot of apps. I keep running lists of current/deleted apps in One Note, so I always know where I am at. About 350 right now, with 200 current. Not even close.

    I think I have a problem. I appear to be an app addict. I had no idea my number was so high.Less than half are installed on my focus S right now but I download a ton then delete them if I dont like them or get tired of them. I have had WP since the first day the Focus came out here on ATT.

    I am obviously a little more selective about my apps with 163 and that includes duplication!

    So here's my current AppCount (see attached image).. This is of course the overall count of apps that I downloaded and installed ever since I started using WP7. I have currently around 250 apps and games installed on my HD7.

    53, which includes the HTC and Nokia apps that come with the Titan and 800. Haha, what can I say? I'm picky.

    376 - not even close enough to take the screenshot and submit. What I'd really like is a way to totally disassociate apps from my previously downloaded list. Some of those apps should never show up again because they were not of use to me (then or now). Same for "Trial" apps that I'd bought and then replaced later with a Full version.

    I must admit, a little higher than I expected.

    It would be nice to be able to "forget" apps from the market place... That copy of "Big Boobs" will surely haunt me for the rest of time.. LOL

    I believe there is a bug in 'Reinstaller'. After the app shows the final result, if the phone is locked and then unlocked, the counter starts to go up again. On my phone Reinstaller now shows 8694 apps and I'm pretty sure it's not correct.

    My bad well that is still almost 20 percent of the marketplace. I went into my account purchase history in Zune and counted them all and it totals up to 172 apps since last year (yes I counted every single one...ugg).. that is the most accurate count compared to any app.

    Okay everyone... we're closing this thread and will see who's got the most (keeping in mind the quirk where numbers are inflated) and announce the winner in the morning.
