Apple opens up Games category for Costa Rica, Qatar iOS app stores

updated 11:52 pm EST, Thu December 12, 2013

Already-approved games available now for first time in the two regions

On Thursday, Apple notified developers that the iOS App Store in Costa Rica and Qatar has finally opened a Games category, making the dedicated section available in the two different countries for the first time. "All apps in the Games category that are cleared for sale [in the two regions] will be automatically available," Apple said in its email. Developers should check territory availability settings if they do not see an approved game available on either of the two stores.



While Apple says in its email (above) that population of the games will happen on its own, developers who had previously excluded either or both of the countries will need to change settings in the Rights and Pricing section of the Manage Your Apps module in iTunes Connect, reports AppleInsider. A look at the individual stores reveals that the expected latest and updated titles, along with localized recommendations, are already present in the new section.

The email did not offer any explanation for the previous lack of a Games category. Game apps themselves had been available previously, but there was no dedicated section for it beforehand.
