I'm willing to wait for a bargain...

Is there an iphone app (or a piece of software, or a widget, or a website, or something) that will notify me when/if there is a change in price on any of the items in my iTunes wishlist?

I've been able to find apps that will tell me what apps are on sale, or are free. I've been able to find apps that review apps or rate them. But I can't find anything that lets me track my wishlist. Any ideas?
(I'm actually using an iPod Touch, though I doubt that matters)
Thank you kindly.

Best answer: I just joined App Shopper which apparently does this. I don't have too many things on my wishlist, and I doubt any of them have gone on sale, so I haven't been able to test if it works - but it sounds like there is an rss feed or an email option for any drops in price.

I use Pandora's Box, which lets you mark apps as favorites and then I just check it occasionally to see if any of my favorites are on sale.

I second PandoraBox - in addition to tracking your favorites, you can browse around for anything that's either gone on sale or dropped down to free. It also will occasionally update its home page badge to let you know if/how many of your favorites have been marked down, though I haven't found that bit to be very reliable.

BargainBin lets you make a wishlist and even set prices to be alerted by which.

I haven't found anything better than checking the normal review blogs like tipb.com and toucharcade.com for sales.

Response by poster: I had been hoping for something that would somehow sync up to my already established itunes wishlist, but ended up recreating the wishlist on App Shopper; it's already sent me notices about 2 items on my list, that I was able to get for free. Thanks, backwards guitar and everyone else who gave suggestions. I will also try bargainbin and if I find a clear winner i'll report back here.
