App Categories Coming in 1.2

If you’ve logged into your Developer Dashboard today, you’ve noticed a new management feature for your apps. With the upcoming 1.2 release for the Boxee Box, we are going to be introducing new Categories for apps. Up until now, apps have been categorized solely by Video, Photo, and Music. With 1.2, we’ll be helping navigate our exploding library of apps with a whole mess of new categories, including:

  • Adult
  • Education
  • Entertainment
  • Film and TV
  • Gaming
  • Kids
  • Lifestyle
  • Live
  • Music
  • News
  • Photo
  • Sports
  • Social
  • Tech

You don’t have to adjust anything in your application to get ready for this new release. Just log in to your Developer Dashboard, click on Apps, select the app you wish to categorize, and choose three from the list above.

1.2 drops in a few weeks, so get your apps categorized with a quickness!
