App Store opens 'Food & Drink' category, boasts 2,800 apps

updated 10:39 pm EDT, Thu July 12, 2012

Leaves diet, food shopping, coupon apps out of section

After announcing the change to developers 10 days ago, Apple has taken the new "Food & Drink" category of the App Store live. The new section, accessible from the main page, features some 2,800 apps related to cooking, recipe management, cocktail, wine and spirits guides, restaurant ratings and related matters. Previously, such apps were relegated to either the "Lifestyle" or "Travel" sections, and some food-related apps remain there.

Among the food-related apps not yet found in the new section are food-related games, grocery-list type programs and other "shopping" type apps, and dieting programs. Among the selections to be seen in the top paid and free sections of the new category are the intriguingly-named Dracula's Cookbook, an app for tracking down local foodtrucks, and several guides to the use of Absinthe in mixed drinks.

Among the top paid apps in the US store for the category are Food Network in the Kitchen and FastPaleo, an on-the-go guide for the popular "caveman" diet. Top free apps include Starbucks, Urbanspoon (a community-sourced restaurant review site) and OpenTable (local reservations).

    I am asking for this post to be deleted, since I don't seem to have the option to do that myself.
