    Hello,

    The App submission process requires that we add an entry in the .plist file about the app category (games, productivity, etc.)

    The key is "LSApplicationCategoryType". However, I am unable to find this key in the plist editor. I had to manually add this key and its value using a text editor like this:
    Code:
    <key>LSApplicationCategoryType</key>
    <string>public.app-category.productivity</string> //For productivity category
    
    Is there a more convenient way to do that ?

    Hi-light an item in your .plist file and click the plus next to it.
    This will allow you to add a new item.

    Thank you. I did that, but my problem was that I couldn't find the application category in the dropdown menu.

    The application category is not in the drop down box. (HINT)The next version of Xcode makes this REALLY easy(HINT)
