"To Buy" Wishlist?

With so many games out there and continually coming out...
How do you guys keep track of what you want to buy, even though you can't (or don't want to) purchase them just yet.

I'd like to keep track of a wish list of sorts. There is probably something already out there for this purpose, but I am not aware of it.

This would be a wonderful feature if they built it into iTunes.

This is all I need:

Nice idea though, pariculary if you are waiting for a lot of apps.

There are definitely a lot more important things on my priorities list that I have to keep track of over "apps i want for my iphone".

And generally there are probably 10 or more apps that over time I wouldn't mind getting right now.

At first, I used Zenbe Lists (any other note taking or list app will do actually) but it was too painful to manually enter each app.

So now I just bookmark the corresponding threads from TA. lol
It works good for me so far. I discover the games and apps I wanna buy from TA anyway. So why not use the browser's bookmark bar?

Too bad app sniper sucks these days. A lot of new apps aren't in its system.

Ive recently removed it from my device.

I use an Excel spreadsheet that I have spent way too much time enhancing and populating. Of course, I have more than 500 apps on my "wish list", so that's just a bit more than my simple brain can handle

I've always thought that Apple should put a "snipe" feature on the mobile Appstore. Right now I keep a wishlist in the "Notes" application for Vista.

I usually keep my sights on about 5 at the very most. Most recent ones were Circuit Strike.one and Real Racing. I'm not that much of fanatic to have a plethora of apps that I need. And I kinda wanna get back to my 360, but a new game plus an Xbox live membership isn't that cheap.
