    I am concerned about filling up my iPad with apps. With so many great apps out there, I don't know which to download. Is there a way to book mark them for later review? Or put them on a board like a pintrist board? Sometimes I think I don't want to download the app right now but might want to later or tell a friend about.

    Any suggestions?

    Just a thought but on the AppStore in the top right hand corner of the the app details is a button which will enable you to copy the app link. You could paste this in your notes app (or any other app where you can make a list), then, to go back to it you just need to touch the link.

    I've had the same experience the OP is having and never thought about the posting in app notes
    solution. Thanks for the recommend Gabriel.

    I make a screen shot of the app page while at the apps store. This is saved to the saved photo file or Camera roll. Then create an album called apps screen shots or something similar. And collect these screen shots in the album for reference. If you purchase an app and delete it you can retrieve it later from your purchased apps account in the Apps store. If you have an app like Notebook or Goodreader you can move the screen shot to there and delete it from your Camera Roll to avoid cluttering it up with screen shots.

    You can move the screenshot to your notes app folder, but if you delete it in the camera roll, it will also be deleted in the notes app folder. This is because the photos are only stored once, in the camera roll, the photo in the notes app folder would only be a bookmark for the original photo in the camera roll.

    I use the AppShopper to not only keep track of all my apps but it has a wish list that helps remember the apps I might want to purchase. It also sends me email when an app on my wish list is on sale.

    I'm referring to an app named Notebook not the Notes app which comes with the device. The app named Notebook allows you to select photos from your camera roll and copy them into books (folders), rename them and group them by subject. They then can be deleted from the Camera Roll, and will be retained in Notebook.

    They can be used for other purposes directly from Notebook by copying or using the "open in" menu. They can be emailed or shared from Notebook. Videos, PDFs, Docs, pix, can all be stored and used with other apps. Goodreader is very similar and can be synced with cloud storage or backup. Using iTunes, photos can be moved to an iPhoto or myPhoto album from these apps and synced back to the iOS Photo app.

    I second AppShopper. A wonderful app that allows full app bookmarks for later consideration. And it'll alert me of price changes and updates.

    Shame it's not available universally tho
