With its app development situation improving, Microsoft (MSFT) announced this week that it has expanded its Windows Phone Store to 37 new markets around the globe, bringing the company’s app store presence to 191 total markets. Alongside the new regions, Microsoft also revealed that its Web Store is accessible in 112 markets. Coinciding with the new market launches are new features: Universal search to make content discovery easier, app installation to SD cards (for when an Internet connection is not available), and a new reinstallation feature that makes transferring account information less troublesome.
