    Does anyone know of a website or app that will let you save an App search and email you when new App comes out with that tag? Kind of like Ebay's saved search feature that emails you when new products arrive matching you criteria.

    I'm not aware of anything, but wouldn't that be a great addition to the AppStore? Apple, are you listening?

    Yes. You can see new apps, but theres no saved search feature.

    With Appshopper search for any app, when you find it let it load, you are then given the options of Buy, Want or Owning it. Just press Want and next time it's updated or goes on sale you will get an alert.

    Sorry for not getting back, but yes-this is the reason why I bought this app to be alerted if any of my wish list apps go on sale. I have saved a lot of $$ that way.

    Thanks, Leelai for responding back to the OP!

    Does not answer the OP's question. Yes an alert on an app's price is a nice feature, but it can't tell you when new apps come out that matches your tag words...

    No sorry, I haven't heard of anything that will do this. Let's hope someone else has.
