Google has the answer for those who read...Catalogs

http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2011/...th-google.html

Quote:
The Google Catalogs app features digital versions of catalogs across many popular categories, including fashion and apparel, beauty, jewelry, home, kids and gifts. We’ve partnered with a variety of top brands including Anthropologie, Bare Escentuals, Bergdorf Goodman, Bloomingdale's, Crate and Barrel, L.L. Bean, Lands’ End, Macy’s, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Pottery Barn, Saks Fifth Avenue, Sephora, Sundance Catalog, Tea Collection, Urban Outfitters and Williams-Sonoma, just to name a few.

How about auction catalogues ? In UK most reasonable size houses have their own on-line, or you can pay for a targetted search facility.

Yeah, or even an HTML5 version - catalogs seem like a good fit for a simple web approach.

Interactive auction catalogs? Seems like a great opportunity for someone- you could link them to people's calendars, etc.

I haven't flipped through a catalog in...jeez, I can't even remember. I'm not sure how useful this is going to be, considering there's several sites I can go to that fill the "catalog-void" quite nicely.

That's why it's odd that it's an app you have to go download, I think. Surprised Google didn't just make it a site you could link to from any browser/device.

Anything that could possibly cut down on the amount of catalogs that go through the mail would be a step forward.

The blog says the Android version is 'coming soon' - but why would GOOGLE put out an iPad app before an Android one?

I'm having cognitive dissonance.

They did this with Boutiques.com as well last year:

Taking don't be evil a little too far?

Catalogs?

I remember poring over my mom's ladies' underwear and swimwear catalogs. Ah, those were more innocent times when nekkid women weren't just a few clicks away.

Google has just released Catalogs for Android:

Starting today, Google Catalogs is available for Android tablets, as well as the iPad, giving you a new way to shop from the comfort of your couch. With rich product images, videos, and the ability to curate your own personal collages to share with friends, Google Catalogs makes browsing your favorite mail order catalogs easy, fun and interactive.
Just in time for the holidays.

Doesn't everyone have their catalog online already? Everyone I shop at, does.
