    I have a slew of apps I might pay a couple bucks for but not the current price I see them at. Is there a website that lets me "register" ones I want and get email alerts when the price drops?

    Why not use the AppShopper app. It let's you create a wish list and alerts you, as soon as one of the apps in your wish list drops in price. Btw. AppShopper is free.

    It doesn't list the tomtom nav app. I guess it doesn't work for all? That's one app I'd pay for if the price dropped.

    Fyi


    For some reason the app doesn't always show known apps but you can find them on the website and put them on your wish list from there

    Ok, the reason why the AppShopper does not list TomTom is, that it is configured to only show iPad apps. TomTom is iPhone only.

    So, to make AppShopper app list it as well, follow these instructions:
    -start AppShopper
    -select the Settings wheel
    -select Show->All Apps
    -TomTom and any other iPhone only app will now also be shown in the search
