As expected, Apple has added a 'Kids
' category to the App Store. Users can view content geared for specific age groups, such as "Best for Ages 5 & Under," with a primary focus on educational apps. The listings also include popular games for kids, along with rankings for top paid apps, top free apps and top-grossing titles.
Parents can quickly navigate to additional curated groups that focus on interactive stories, science themes, creative play, informative entertainment, and words and numbers.
The new section joins 23 existing categories, ranging from weather apps to games and productivity titles. Apple maintains a separate listing for general education apps, with a broader range of content that includes apps for college students and other adults.
