Default Google Plays 'Add to Wishlist'

Am I going effing crazy or what? I can't add hardly anything to my wish list anymore. For over a week now.. It is getting quite irritating as I love that feature. I am always adding stuff to my wish list. Its an awesome bookmarking utility whether it was intended as one or not.

I can maybe add one or two things to the list a day, and when I do they are pretty much only paid apps.
That is exactly how Apples appstore works. You can only add paid applications to your wish list.
If they are planning to change that to only paid apps I'm not gonna be happy. That would be very counterproductive.
Sure you could just install it real quick if its paid, but I don't need apps I don't need right this minute wasting space and other resources. And also I will find a good app for my tablet while browsing on my mobile. So I will add to wish list then download on my tablet.

Every time I try to add something it simply says 'could not add "some app" to wish list'. Am I the only one having this problem because I don't see anyone else complaining about it anywhere. Nor even a section to contact Google plays support team about it.

I apologize. Your reply went unnoticed till now. But I just tried it. First I tried adding to wish list an application on the Google Play Store app on my Nexus 5, it gave the usual 'could not add appName to wishlist'. I then opened the link by sharing to my browser and sure enough it said 'An error occurred, please try again later.'

So unfortunately looks like its happening on both. So am I alone here? Are others able to add free applications to their wish list still? Are you able to Lesalloum? If so must be an issue on my account. But this is the only issue I am having.

No I don't believe so. I can look in titanium backup and see if there is any by that name. Is it a user or system app? Can't find it on store.

Its a user app that messes with google play.
It was a blind guess though..
I'd try a factory reset if I were you
