Spotify app beta now available for Windows Phone 8

Windows Phone has taken flak for having less apps available for its platform than available for the iPhone or Android Phones.

But when Microsoft launched Windows Phone 8 last fall, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer said the platform had 120,000 apps in its store, including 46 of the top 50 apps.

Another top app joins the list today as music-streaming service Spotify joins the Windows Phone Store. (The official Windows Phone blog notes that the rollout of the app — which is still in beta test form — is starting this morning so it might take several hours before it’s available for download in all locales.)

The app is free to download. There’s a 30-day free trial for the service, after which it costs $9.99 a month.
