Apple Adds ‘Food & Drink’ Category to App Store


Apple has added a new Food & Drink category to the iOS App Store. Apple told MacStories earlier this month that this category is for apps that had previously been in the Lifestyle category and is now home to “apps that help users cook and bake, mix drinks, manage recipes, find new restaurants and bars, and learn what their friends like to eat and drink”.

Food & Drink is home to the free Starbucks app, which is one of my most-used apps, as well as offerings from the Food Network, restaurants like Chipotle, Domino’s Pizza and many others, as you’d expect.

The new Food & Drink category is now available here on AppShopper in the category drop-down menu so you can browse it to your heart’s content. Or, you can browse this category right in iTunes through this link. At the time of this post, there are more than 2,800 iPhone apps and 1,200 iPad apps in this category.
