Apple App Store Adds Food and Drink Category

July 16, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Grouping apps into different categories makes downloads from the App Store easier. Though there are a whole bunch of apps which help you manage recipes, find top restaurants, and other food, they were spread throughout the App Store.

Now, Apple has added a new Food and Drink category which will house all such apps.

This section of the App Store will contain apps from restaurants and some recipe apps among many other things.

The new section already has more than 3000 apps covering drinks, recipes and cooking, among others. However, the Food and Drink section doesn’t have apps for things like dining, shopping, or coupons.

In this section, you will come across applications for some of your favorite restaurants such as Starbucks, Pizza Hut and Fridays, among others.

In an email, Apple has told developers that the new category will include apps to help users cook and bake, mix drinks, manage recipes, find new restaurants and bars, and learn what their friends like to eat and drink.

There are apps even for calculating the tip and drinking games. Log on to the App Store to check out the new section.
