Is there an iOS app that tracks prices and sends notices for sales?

Sorry if I opened this in the wrong forum.

I'm looking for an app that can track game prices and alert / notice you (directly on the iOS device) when the games on your "wishlist" go on sale? (Kind of like the Steam wishlist)

Is there such an app for iOS?

iPhone 5S 32 GB * iPad mini Retina 64 GB

I use appsfire, but I don't think that's available any more, it sends you notifications when an item goes on sale or goes free, you can also check price history and stuff.

The ta app is good as it also tells you about updates a game receives but I dint think it sends you a notification, I've not seen one anyway, but I could have disabled them.

A lot of people like app shopper.

Yeah it gives you notifications if you tell it to do so in your settings

The best one is the old AppShopper app which Apple banned from the store for no good reason but it still works for those of us who still have it installed.

The replacement is AppShopper Social which is a pail shadow of the original, but still does the job. Alternatively you could use the AppShopper website which will send you emails if an app on your wishlist drops in price.

AppZapp has always been my strong preference. The original app was pulled. They apparently have a new one out, but I'm not familiar with it since I still use the old one.

It's too late.
