Telerik RadControls for WP7 is the most widely used commercial UI suite on the marketplace. Says who?
Says Justin Angel. The man kindled the WP7 dev world with exciting Marketplace statistics. He has downloaded all Windows Phone 7 XAP’s using the Windows Phone 7 marketplace API’s and has answered a bunch of questions that preoccupy a lot of Windows Phone devotees’ minds.

Justin found out that 97% of the apps on the Marketplace are not obfuscated and that the Silverlight platform accounts for 90% of the WP7 apps compared to 10% for XNA. There is a very interesting piece of information about the cloned apps and the publishers’ contribution to the overall marketplace.

Our team is very proud, as according to Justin’s analysis, Telerik RadControls for WP7 is the most popular commercial UI toolset on the marketplace, with over 560 apps using Telerik tools! It also comes at # 18 in the overall top assemblies chart after the various Microsoft libraries as well as free helpers and frameworks, which wouldn't be possible without all our customers. Thank You!
