App Store Wish List Alternatives: Creating Wishlist of Apps Remains Seamless

Unhappy with the removal of Wish List from iOS 11 App Store? Don't be disappointed as there are some great App Store Wish List alternatives for iOS 11 that can let you make a special collection of apps and track them with the desired flair!

I know many of you are missing App Store’s Wishlist that no longer exists in iOS 11 or later. Though I would like to get it back sooner than later, I’m not losing sleep over the absence of this significant feature. Guess what? There are quite a few pretty fine App Store wish list alternatives for iOS 11 that can come very handy in getting your job done seamlessly.

It turns out, and you don’t need to look beyond the Reminders or Notes app which you can use to keep an eye on the apps you want to download in future. Unlike the erstwhile Wish List feature, you can add both paid and free apps as well as games to your exclusive roaster. Just in case, you want to look beyond; there are some third-party apps as well that can stand up to the task fairly well.

Best App Store Wish List Alternatives for iOS 11

Quick access


The first and a more capable alternative is the stock Reminders app for iOS. What makes this app a better option is the ability to make a great list with ease and get timely reminders to download your favorite apps.

Another notable advantage of this app is that you get the option to set location reminder. Supposing you have found a great travel planner app that you want to explore after reaching home, you can set the app to alert you to download it when you reach your locality.

Moreover, you have the option to prioritize your wish list as well. For instance, if you don’t want to miss out on a particular app, you will be able to put it on top of the radar.

The second in line is the equally impressive app named “Notes.” You can create a new App Store wish list in this app and include all of your favorite apps in the collection. Once you have crafted a fine lineup, you will be able to keep an eye on your stuff without any hassle.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could sync the list across your devices? You can use iCloud to sync the collection with other devices connected with the same Apple ID to access it from anywhere. Another obvious benefit of using the Notes app is that you can share it with your friends and family members to collaborate.

Lookmark – The Finest Wish List App for iOS

I have found Lookmark an excellent wishlist alternative. It makes the process of creating a roster of apps more seamless.

Aside from being an able option for iOS, it also allows you to add iTunes content from Safari on macOS. To get it done, take the utmost advantage of its browser extension.
