Just In Time For Christmas, Wishlists Arrive In The Google Play Store


After laying dormant for weeks now, Google has finally flipped the switch enabling the bookmarking of apps, music, movies, and books in the Play Store. This is a “feature” I’ve been clamoring for since the dawn of the Android Market (I have an app addiction, one that needs to be sorted), and comes as a welcomed update.

Well, the wait is officially over and while you can’t share your Wishlists with friends and family just yet, it is a nice place to tuck away apps you would maybe wanna try out later, or save for until after the Christmas season (once you’ve accumulated enough Google Play Store giftcards from relatives). There’s no need to hunt or look for an updated version of the Play Store, it’s already there. You just need to wait for Google to enable it in the current version, 3.9.16.

Let’s hope Google has more goodies in store for the Play Store hopefully revealing more at their October 29th press event in NYC. It’s a good time to be alive and reppin’ the green robot, folks. Let us know if you see Wishlists in your Play Store yet.

Thanks, Ricky!

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.
