Google Catalogs lets you shop your favorite catalogs.

Posted on 8/17/2011 by A.A.I

Today google goes live with their Google catalogs app. Surprisingly this app is available for iOS but leaves Android users waiting. The app aims to aggregate the content of many shopping catalogs into one easy to access app. Drawing from the catalogs of 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 for starters.

Google highlighted a number of the apps features in their blog post.

  • Interact: Zoom in to see products up close, tap on tags to learn more about an item or, in some catalogs, view inspiring photo albums and videos.
  • Find products in nearby stores: When an item catches your eye, instantly find it in a store near you or tap “Buy on Website” to visit the merchant online.
  • Express your creativity: Create a collage of your favorite catalog pages and products. If you need inspiration, you can check out collages created by others.
  • Share with friends: Email a product or collage to all your shopping buddies.
  • Get instant access to new catalogs: Add catalogs to your Favorites and get notified each time a new issue arrives.
  • Discover new products and brands: Search for products within or across multiple catalogs to find exactly what you’re looking for.
With android users having to wait to try out this app i'm lead to think that perhaps the Android app will have a bit more android goodness to offer the user. As we've seen in the past google apps really do run better on Android.  While we wait check out the video below for an Introduction to Google Catalogs.
