New Food and Drink category now live in the App Store

Earlier this month, several iOS developers reported receiving word from Apple that it was adding a new category to the App Store called Food and Drink.

The new section would showcase a number of applications regarding the topic, that previously got lost in the gigantic Lifestyle section. And now it’s live…

As noted by 9to5Mac, the new Food and Drink category is now live in the App Store. Users can use the new section to find a nice mix of food and drink recipe apps, cooking aids, and local restaurant finders.

To give you an idea, top paid iPhone apps in the new category include Food Network in the Kitchen and MapMuse’s Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives Locator. Top free apps include Starbucks and Urbanspoon.
