It’s something that Google have probably lost patience with their user base asking for, now it appears that wishlists are starting to appear in Play Store updates around the globe. At the time of issuing this post, there’s no reports of this inside Australia, which makes me fear that this may become another Google Music fiasco.
Like most electronic wishlists, when you find something you want but don’t want to buy it right now, you can tag or bookmark it into your wishlist that you can refer back to later. There’s scarce little information floating around the web right now about the function but all reports suggest that
- It’s only for your reference right now
- No (obvious) way to send it to anyone
The good news if we ever see this in Australia is that you can not only tag apps, but books, music, magazines, movies and TV – Anything you can buy in the Play Store you can add to your wishlist.
Now to keep our fingers crossed for a quick delivery into Australia!
