Thanks to the growing popularity of food and drink-related apps, Apple is adding a dedicated section for the category to its App Store. “Food & Drink” joins other app categories such as education, entertainment and finance as a part of an effort to help Apple device users find programs based on their area of interest. The section lists the Food Network app as its top paid app, followed by Allrecipes.com, Fast Paeleo and Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. Apps from companies such as Pizza Hut and Starbucks are also listed in the section. Apple is no stranger to adding new categories to the App Store. In March, it added a Catalogs section for visually-rich shopping catalogs. Read the full story at Mashable.
