I had the same problem. Go to the Mail app on the iPad. Once you open Mail app, they should be sent. Otherwise, in any case, the emails should be in your outbox of the account you're using. Definitely a bug.
The wish list is a good idea, but careful! because it links to a purchase, not a rental.
Well, I must admit that I Don'tUnderstandMyIpad either, sir. Before, when I would send those "tell a friend" app notices, I could hear like a "whooshing" sound as if it was being delivered and it was. But come to think of it, that stopped at about the same time I noticed I wasn't receiving these emails anymore! I'm sure that goes hand in hand!Originally Posted by DontUnderstandMyIpad
I did download the AppShopper earlier and gave myself a good amount of time to use it before I posted back here. The AppShopper is a wonderful alternative to "my problem" that I've been having. It also allows you to put in apps that you already have, hopefully so as not to be repeated in future searches. What I did notice, as I did in the Apple store online, was repetition and lots of it. So I guess I'll have to deal with that, too. I also noticed that by saving future apps this way, it did add in a few more steps for me.....but beggars can't be choosers and I am extremely grateful to you, "I Don'tUnderstandMyIpad" for telling me about the AppShopper!

I'm not sure I totally understand what you mean by the dropdown arrow of the app. Could you clarify this for me? Thanks in advance!
robogobo, Have tried your suggestion many times! First of all, it sounds too easy and too good to be true. Secondly, it doesn't work!Originally Posted by robogobo
I just tried the method of reminding yourself about an app,tell a friend, and it worked fine for me.
I got the e mail whoosh as you described and it was immediately in my mail box. I use gmail.
Next to the price of any item in iTunes is a small downward facing arrow. Click on the arrow and you will see a number of choices that you can do with the app, album, movie, etc. One of the choices is "Add to Wish List" If you click on this the item will be saved in your "Wish List" in iTunes. To access your Wish List click on the downward facing arrow next to your user name or e-mail (upper right hand corner) and click on Wish List to be taken to your personal Wish List. Any item you've previously tagged is now stored there. My wish list currently has about 85 items. I won't purchase all of them but things I find interesting are now saved so I don't have to worry about trying to find them later.Originally Posted by peacebaby21

I'm not sure if you're talking about purchasing via iTunes or the App Store. The way I purchase my apps is to click on the blue button that says App Store and do it that way or use the app shopper as someone so nicely suggested earlier. I just tried it through iTunes and it didn't seem very easy nor very possible. I'm still not sure what you mean about the arrow in your first sentence!Originally Posted by The Alternative
