Playbook MANIFEST.MF Question

I'm putting together a Financial Application using the Marmalade SDK.

In the MANIFEST.MF file the Application-Category defaults to core.games.

Obviously I would like to change that to an appropriate category.

Although I'm not sure I believe there is no Financial Category and the only thing available would be the Business category under Apps.  Firstly I would like to make a suggestion -- Please if there is not one already please create an Apps / Finance Category.

Now to my question -- If I'm stuck with the Business Category how to I state this in the Manifest.mf file.


Would it be:

Application-Category: core.apps.business


if not please give me an example.


Also who do I have to bribe to get a separate Finance category Smiley Wink
