The new categories include:

So quite the list of changes category-wise which will be good not only to keep the market a bit more organized but also to help developers have their applications and games discovered a bit easier. While on the subject of convenience, AT&T customers got a little boost thanks to AT&T carrier billing now available for them. Now you’ll be able to buy all those games you’ve wanted and charge it to your phone bill instead of your credit card.
