Got Something for App Genres List?


If you’ve got something for our app genres list, we’d love to hear about it!

You can find an app in any genre.

You can find an app for any interest. There are apps for art, business, health and fitness, travel, and more. You can find an app about almost anything you can imagine.

There are also apps for every niche. If you’re into cooking or baking then there are thousands of recipe apps available on the App store. These recipes will give you step-by-step instructions while also providing pictures to help guide you along the way until your meal is ready to eat!

We’ve made a list of categories for you to choose one. You can change them later or add new ones. The best practice is to select at least two types for your app. The app will fall into one category, but you can also choose to list with other related and unrelated categories. Also, look at the top 25 rankings we provide in this report to see how you compare against others in your chosen categories.  Don’t forget to suggest one if you can’t find one here.


We would love to hear from you about what you think about the different app categories and their importance for making decisions in your mobile app development process. Let us know in the comments below or reach out to us on social media about your thoughts!
