This year's hottest new tech toy - the iPad - had our team touching, flipping, and spinning their way around the web.
We've been the leader in the online catalog industry for 14 years, and almost immediately our imaginations arrived at the same conclusion: The iPad is where catalog shopping needs to be, now! We want to see catalogs that update constantly, we want to have pages that flip, buttons that zoom and a simple interface to stores' shopping carts.
So we built it: an ingenious (now patent pending) catalog app that makes the most of the iPad's revolutionary touch technology. We poured our inspiration into a destination that puts catalogs on the iPad in a really cool, interactive shopping experience.
This is our new mantra: Catalogs you'll flip over.
"Hey Troops! This is a great site for a dyed-in-the-wool, card carrying, black belt, catalog freak! I placed you in my favorites section." Don N.
"I am a catalog junkie. I LOVE ordering stuff from catalogs and I now have a place to find them. I don't have to search all over the web! This is a great site!" Nicole J.
