When you're opening an app in the Play Store, you may notice that there's a bookmark-like icon at the top of the screen. It's called a Wishlist icon. If the Wishlist icon in certain app is displayed with the Plus sign means the app has not been added to the wishlist, while if it's displayed with the Check mark icon means the app have been added to the wishlist. You can use this icon to add or remove an app from wishlist. An advantage of using wishlist feature is an easiness to find and track apps you have been added to the wishlist.

Below are the steps to do so:
  1. Open Play Store.
  2. Tap the Search icon and then enter your search term.
  3. All apps that match with your search term will be displayed here.
  4. If you wish to add an app to the wishlist without reading the app detail, tap the Three dot icon in the right side of the app's name and then select Add to wishlist.
  5. If you want to read the app detail first before adding the app to the wishlist, tap the app and then tap the Add wishlist icon.
  6. The selected app will be added to the wishlist.
  7. To see all your wishlist apps, while you're in the Play Store's main page, swipe the screen from left to the right and then tap My wishlist. All your wishlist apps will be displayed here.

  2. Swipe the screen from left to the right.
  3. Tap My wishlist to display all of your wishlist apps.
  4. If you wish to remove an app from the wishlist without reading the app detail, tap the Three dot icon in the right side of the app's name and then select Remove from wishlist.
  5. If you want to read the app detail first before removing the app from the wishlist, tap the app then tap the Remove wishlist icon.
  6. The selected app will be removed from wishlist.

If you're like me, I usually use this feature when I accidentally found an interesting app but having no time to read the app review (FYI, I always read the review first before installing an app). Next time, I can easily find the app through My wishlist menu to read the review and then decide to install the app or not. So, have you ever used this feature? Has this feature helped you?
