Android Tablets: Using the Google Play Store Wish List

The Google Play Store is chock-full of wonderful apps, some of which may pique your curiosity, but perhaps not to the point where the urge to click that Install or Buy button overwhelms you. For those apps, you can add them to your Play Store wish list. Here's how it's done:

  1. Open the Play Store app and start browsing for new apps for your Android tablet.

  2. Display an app's screen, the one that details information about the app.

    It can be a free app or a paid app — doesn't matter.

  3. Touch the Wishlist icon atop the screen.

    The Wishlist icon looks like a bookmark icon, but with a tiny plus in the middle. When an item is flagged for a wish list, the icon turns solid.

Review apps you've placed into the wish list (which appears here as two words despite the Play Store's insistence that it's one word) by choosing the My Wishlist command from the Menu icon. You see all the apps you've placed in the wish list.

To remove an app from the wish list, touch the Cancel icon next to the app in the wish list. Or you can visit the app's page in the Play Store and touch the Wishlist icon again.

Apps stay in your wish list until you install them or manually remove them from the list.
