There are a bunch more kids games on iOS than WP and that is a big miss for me. My kids need some distraction at times, like airplanes, and I basically only have angry birds for them. No quality kids educational games.

Apps are important to many people, even if they don't use that many. They just like knowing that they're there. And often times, like with banking apps, all it takes is that one app's availability to make a decision for them.
That's why Microsoft's strategy with unifying the cores of Windows Phone and Windows 8 was so important.
MS knows that Windows 8 will sell millions and millions. Even a "bad" Windows 8 launch would still sell many many millions.
Devs know this, and they want to design apps that appeal to a large base.
Because of the shared cores, and a very similar development environment, WinRT apps will be able to be ported to WP8 fairly easily. This will cause a huge jump in developer support, and in return, a huge jump in app availability.
