do they have a App Store "wish list" to buy later?

    ya know maybe it's just me...

    now i know lots of apps are .99; however, they all add up... especially the $5, 10, and $20 apps...

    I wish they had a "wish list" so when you are browsing the app store and find some you'd like to buy you can put them in a "wish list" so you can purchase them later......

    maybe I'm just a cheap a$$ on a budget.....(budget and iphone is a oxymoron i know!!)

    ok... that looks good... just wish it was kind of "native" within the app store... kind of a "cart" that you can add apps to then check out when you want...

    thanks... i'll start using that in the meantime....

    CHEERS!

    That would be pretty sweet. Like Amazon. Maybe we could throw a suggestion to Apple?

    I've often wondered why there wasn't something like this available too. Or even a way to bookmark a page in the App Store.

    I just take a screenshot of the thing and stick in a folder called GetItLater.

    use [app]appminer[/app] or [app]pandorabox[/app]

    another is app sniper but it costs .99 and apparently haven't been working well (read reviews)

    i have appsniper but just a cart like the above mentioned amazon has.. i emailed them a few months ago about it...... seems kind of an obvious thing to do in the "store"... I always forget the apps i want to buy when i go back to the store.....

    I use a similar thing for lots of purchases, also makes you search it out again which can be another step against impulse purchases!

    I just drag the app's link from the iTunes Store page to an "App Store Links" folder. It'll create a "web location" file for the link.

    Appshopper is great, and I have always used it to keep track of what new apps are released. You can search by category (games, medical, etc.) and never miss a new release. It's so much more convenient than looking directly in the app store for new releases. And now that it has the option to create a "wish list" and receive emails when prices drop on the apps you are "watching," I don't know why anyone would use anything else.
    It's not an app, of course, but it sure beats any of the available apps for tracking what games you are waiting to for a price drop to buy.

    In that case, it's the power and home buttons (quickly). Sends the pic straight to your Photos.
