Time magazine gets official Windows Phone app

On Sunday, the new LinkedIn app for Windows Phone was released. Now, Time magazine has joined the ranks and released its first app for Windows Phone; it's now available for download from the Windows Store Marketplace.

While Time still produces the print weekly magazine, the Windows Phone app also includes videos from the Time.com website along with the extensive and impressive articles and photography that have become the trademarks of the news outlet.

Yet another popular news media outlet, The Daily Beast, has also launched the first version of its Windows Phone app earlier last week.

Finally, WPCentral.com reports that The Wall Street Journal may be the next big media outlet to release a Windows Phone app. Details and a specific release date were not mentioned, although the site claims the launch is "right around the corner."

There's been a surge of recent Windows Phone app releases. The website Windows Phone App List claims that over 82,000 apps have been released for the Windows Phone Marketplace since it was launched in the fall of 2010. It also claims that close to 2,000 apps have been added to the Marketplace in the last two weeks.
