Apple has added a fresh new section to its App Store, dedicated to apps that make it easy to share â€œselfiesâ€. For those who arenâ€™t aware yet with this term, it describes self-portraits taken with smartphones, cameras and other devices (letâ€™s hope that tablets are excluded). Selfies are associated with social networking, and services like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter have contributed to the rise of the â€œselfieâ€ phenomenon. Even more, Oxford Dictionaries legitimized the selfie by declaring it the Word of the Year for 2013.
Now Appleâ€™s gone and created a whole new â€œSharing Selfiesâ€ section in the App Store. The selfieâ€™s domination is complete. Apple likes to stay trendy and thatâ€™s probably why the Cupertino giant has recently added the new â€œSharing Selfiesâ€ category for those who feel the urge to take photos of themselves and share them.
The sectionâ€™s selection of â€œselfieâ€ apps is available on both the mobile and desktop versions of the Apple App Store for iOS devices. Some of the featured apps from the new section include the following titles: Picr, Frontback, Everyday, Snapchat, Samba, Selfie Cam, 1 Second Everyday and others. The new category joins other App Store lists like â€œBest New Appsâ€ and â€œSpectacular Stories: Games.â€
