    I'm not a dev, but I'm curious as to how much a positive WP Central review can benefit the devs...

    How many apps have you downloaded and use because you read about it here on the WP Central site?

    I can blame Rubino & Company for:

    Another Case Solved
    Nokia's App Folder
    Camera 360
    Car Dash
    Channel 9
    Dream of Pixels
    Fresh Paint
    Glance Background
    Movie Maker
    Nokia Camera Beta, Creative Studio, Storyteller
    Office Lens
    Pictures Lab
    and of course, WPCentral

    I'm pretty sure I first heard about all of these here on WPC. And yeah, it seems I'm a camera app junky. So my count is 22. Bing apps aren't included because I was watching for those. Probably not a record, but I do appreciate the effort it takes to analyze and describe new apps and updates. BTW, free is good, but in most cases, I'll pay a buck or two (sometimes 3) for apps that work well. It costs so little to encourage devs to keep doing what they do.

    How about you? Do you tend to scan the QR codes after reading a review here?

    Fully 90% of the apps I have on my ICON and those I tried and decided not to keep came from WP Central. The editors that review apps are good to point out some of the not so obvious pluses and make an app more useable.

    Adobe Photoshop Express, Amazing Weather HD and Metrotube are the ones that stand out to me. I'm sure there are more but I'm not sure ;)

    Hardly 6-7 apps.... Because I search store more than WPC....
    And I am not including those which I wanted but the news of their release was given by wpcentral. Eg. 4shared
    Only those which were highlighted by WPC....
