iTunes Store doesn’t have wish lists! Or does it?

If you’re like me, you find lots of music you want to buy on the iTunes Store every time you go. Neither of us, though, allow ourselves to buy everything we see, right? Some of it is a “maybe” or a “compare to something else” or whatever.

iTunes doesnt have a built in wishlist function... or so it seems

The point is iTunes doesn’t have a button to save a list of songs you want to buy later! I’d wished for this feature since the early days of iTunes, but it wasn’t until I took a step back and wondered… “What is the most intuitive way possible to do this? If Apple put this in and didn’t tell anybody, how would they have done it?”

Well, a testament to their utter simplicity and over-the-top sensical nature… Apple has hidden this feature in plain daylight.

Ready?

A wishlist is the same as a playlist. Just make one and drag songs from anywhere, including the store itself, into that playlist/wishlist thingy. It’s that simple!

PS: how many people reading this have already discovered this one somehow? If so, I’d love to hear how you came across it, or who told you. I doubt it was Apple.
