    One of my favorite things used to be the ability to save an app in the App Store to a Wish List. You could tap on the 3 dots and choose Add to Wish List. Maybe it's an app that I'm not sure I really want, or one that I don't want to buy right at this moment, whatever. And this way they won't get relegated to the "Totally forgot the name of that app or even it's very existence" folder in my brain. Well, that function seems to have disappeared!! :mad: :barf:

    It's definitely, officially disappeared. I can't imagine why.

    Fortunately, I copied my wish list to AppZapp so I would be notified when my Wish List apps go on sale. I too, would be very sad if my list was gone.

    I just went through this the other day. I was looking up an app that I knew was in that wish list, but I couldn’t remember it’s name. Thankfully we hadn’t updated our iTunes, so the list and App Store was still there on my laptop.

    After looking through it, I set up a “wish list” reminder list on the phone and now I add anything I might want to look at again into that using the three dots.

    I’m so mad that Apple didn’t at least warn us so we could have made a list somewhere else. :mad:

    Sadly, Apple has been making decisions that don’t make me happy. This failure to provide any warning that a feature was going to be removed is just one more in what I perceive to be failures to really think about all of their user base. Separating us from our money seems to matter more to Apple anymore than whether or not we are truly happy with their products. I wonder if they are thinking they can do whatever they want and our iGadget addictions will keep us forking over money no matter what they give us. I’m stockpiling wood just in case I need to return to smoke signals.

    They might be. :eek: I guess I’m their target market because unfortunately my Apple addiction is strong, and I’m not sure what they’d have to do to make me stop using/buying their products. I’m not generally like that - I can be loyal to a brand but if I find something better I’ll gladly switch - but Apple and Mini (Cooper) are two that could stick with me for life.

    EDIT: Maybe cost. If I’m 70-something living on social security I might not be able to afford the latest/greatest from Apple. That would really suck.

    I am also part of their target market. I’m up to my neck and don’t regret it.

    Sooooo when’s the next iPad upgrade? (Rhetorical, I’ve been watching the Apple forums)
