“The selfie phenomenon appears to have won a certain measure of legitimacy from Apple,” Steven Musil reports for CNET.

“Apparently geared toward expediting the satisfaction felt by many people when they take photos of themselves and share them with others, the company on Thursday added a special section to its iTunes App store devoted to apps that cater to the need to selfie,” Musil reports.

“Mixed in with popular selfie apps such as Snapchat and Justin Bieber’s Shots, the “Sharing Selfies” section also includes selfie diary app Picr and selfie portrait-editing app Facetune,” Musil reports.
