App to manage my backlog


I am looking for an app to manage my backlog.

What I want is an app that I can add apps into that I want to potentially play later. I have a huge backlog so keeping all of them on my device is not possible but I fear them getting lost in the "purchased" tab on the App Store. The TA app does not show me what apps I already own and not all of them are apps that I want to check out later.

Advice is appreciated thanks!

Huge plus would be a categorization that I can make of my own so I can separate my mifi games from the rest.

You could always use Appshopper Social and use the My Apps tab for any games you've bought but not played yet. If you don't want to use the Wishlist tab as an actual wishlist, you could use it for your mfi games.

I tried it but it is not available for iPad and a bit tricky to use for I want (as you explained). Hope ther is something more fitting out there

Gave up on it as it just kept growing and growing! lol

I use Pinterest to organize various aspects of my life. I made private (because no one needs to know the insane number of apps I buy ) Pinterest folders for various game categories. I have the Pinterest app on my iPad, so I can add app links straight to the appropriate categories from the action icon in the App Store. Right now I'm using folders called "Apps I Want," and "Apps I Own." I intend to narrow focus by adding folders for specific genres as well. This works very nicely for me, and I was very glad I'd begun this when all my App Store wish list saved items vanished a few months ago.

All nice and well, when I finish a game mostly in a week it goes straight to Delete Land, no worries, no headaches, just a happy gamer with now not more than 4 games on my device, I salute you all, don't make life harder or more complicated than it allready is.

I agree entirely.

I have a notebook, and write a short description of each game in it. This way I've effectively got it in a favourites folder and then just re-dl. Only problem is if the game stops going.

I use Google Drive for that. A Games folder and docs for have, want, etc.

So there really is no good app for that? Hm a big pitty. Would be cool if TA app would have a sub function for it. If anybody knows anything else much appreciated
