As you can there are currently over 1,200 apps available to be added in! You can also expect this number to grow rapidly.

Office 365 provides a standard platform to develop and use apps. This is appealing for both users and developers. Other cloud platforms make lots of noise about all the third party add-ons they have. 1,200 is s good starting point that will only increase. You just watch and see.
