+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

If there is one thing that people in the United States know how to do, it is shop.  Whether your preferred method be via retail store locations, online, or even by mail, we Americans know how to do it, and do it well.  This is why it should come as no surprise that with the recent explosion of smart phones and pieces of hardware like the iPad, that mobile platforms are now accounting for ten percent of all purchases within the country.  But what if we had the ability to combine the best of mail based retail and mobile together into a single app, that could handle everything at once?  With this specifically in mind, the new iPad software Catalog Spree was born.

What the app attempts to do is make use of the iPad's widescreen form factor to emulate the appearance of the same catalogs that would appear in your mailbox.  Futher more, from within each retail magazine, users would have the ability to zoom in and view specific items in more detail, share them with friends via Facebook, or even purchase it using the built in browser.  This truly aims to be the one stop solution for everything shopping related.  Don't take my word for it though, check out their trailer for the new tool below:

Most importantly, you should really consider how much paper could be saved by viewing your favorite catalogs of choice in this app.  So not only is it saving you time, but also the environment as well.  That is a win-win scenario if I have ever heard one.  Be sure to give this free tool a download and do your part to re-stimulate this American economy.  Every little bit helps, and when it is this easy, you would be crazy not to!
