App Store to soon get new Food and Drink category, relevant developers contacted

As noted by MacStories, Apple will be adding a new Food and Drink category to the iTunes App Store. According to Apple’s email to select developers, the new category will go live in “the next few weeks.” The new app section will cover a slew of food related apps, but not shopping, dieting, or food-related games. Restaurant and bar finding apps, recipe apps, cooking and baking apps will be supported, though, per Apple’s email. In preparation for this new category, Apple is contacting developers of apps that have been deemed fit for the new category. Developers have the option to accept or decline addition to the new section.
