Importance of category?

Hi,

I am quite close to releasing my app "Pocket Nature". It's a collection of interactive nature based scenes, where some are mini games (like matching colored ducks in a pond), summoning a unicorn by spawning flowers, a music mini game where you collect autumn leaves to play music.

Now I am not sure in which category to put my app. It's not really a game, but more a digital toy. So I was tending to put it into the entertainment or life style section. Does anyone know of any data or research if some categories are better suited for app visibility?

In short I'd like to know if there are any recommendation on app category choice or whether this matters at all. Game is tempting because it's the most popular category but also the most crowded one.

Any input is appreciated, Thanks,
Gottfried

Thanks for your tipps. I've done as you suggested and will start with Entertainment as primary and Games as secondary. Let's see how it goes.

LinkPal looks interesting BTW.
