Apple has added a new section to the iOS App Store today promoting apps used to share selfies (via MacStories‘ Federico Viticci). Among the apps included are classics like Snapchat and the Justin Bieber-backed Shots and lesser-known apps such as selfie-editing app Facetune and an app called Front Flash that’s design to make it easier to take selfies in low light…

The temporary section is featured on the front page of the App Store on both iOS and the desktop iTunes application.

If you’re looking for a new app for taking selfies (and hey, who isn’t?), here’s your chance to find the perfect one. Maybe one day soon there will also be a section for finding just the right Flappy Bird clone.

Here’s the full list of featured apps:

    Since one of the goals of the technology integration initiative at Punahou is to put the right device in a student’s hand for any given learning opportunity, the school has also introduced iPod touch for student activities like making real-world measurements on field trips. And Punahou students at all levels are using iPad with specific apps to extend their learning: young children use iPad to practise letters and numbers
