2. Wishlist @ $2

Who doesn’t love to add things to their wishlist when they are shopping? The Wishlist @$2 app not only allows you to integrate wishlists into your site, but it allows you to add a custom Wishlist, so it looks like it was made for your site. Also, wishlist just rolled out the “guest” feature, where you no longer have to be logged in to have a wishlist -- which leads to a higher conversion and engagement rate amongst users.

Why it’s my top choice: It’s the most customizable wishlist app which provides a better UX for your customer.
