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

Me Too!
I am also having this issue. It is not a software issue, it is an account issue. I have two google accounts on my phone, and online. When I switch to the second account, on both the website and the Play Store in the phone, I can add to its wishlist just fine. But I am unable to add things to the wishlist with my primary account.

When I tap the bookmark icon on my phone, the little "Adding to wishlist..." message pops up, but is replaced by one that says "AppName could not be added to wishlist". When I go on the website and click the add to wishlist button, it says "An unexpected error has occurred. Please try again later." I hadn't added things to my wishlist for a while before today, but it's a pretty annoying issue.

It appears that I can install from the phone and remotely via the website as normal.

Problem solved (for me, anyways)
Well, after a lengthy back and forth and escalation to a higher support person and engineers, it turns out that they issue is the fact that the Google Play wishlist has an item limit!!!! There was no notification of this anywhere, and the error messages gave no indication that this was the case. I'm able to remove items and add new ones, but I'm pretty annoyed that this is even an issue, and that the error message don't say what the issue is, since Google Play knows exactly what the problem is.

I've attached screenshots of the error messages I received. After learning that there is an item limit, I tried removing an app. I was able to remove it, and re-add it. I then removed it, added another app, and was unable to re-add the first app.

Pretty ridiculous if you ask me.
