iPad version available now; Honeycomb users have to wait
We'll ignore, for the moment, the fact that this Google app hits iOS before Android, and instead focus on how much easier the Google Catalogs app appears to make shopping. The tablet app aggregates some of your favorite catalogs in a single app. Tags in each catalog bring up photos and video of an item. You can search across catalogs, and favorite items for later, and save items across catalogs.
A sampling of the catalogs included in the app are: Anthropologie, Bare Escentuals, Bergdorf Goodman, Crate and Barrel, L.L. Bean, Lands’ End, Macy’s, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Pottery Barn, Saks Fifth Avenue, Sephora, Sundance, Tea Collection, Urban Outfitters and Williams-Sonoma.
We're a long way from dog-eared pages, eh?
