Catalogue -- another free catalog app for the iPad

In an earlier post, I pointed you to Catalog Spree, an attractive app with about a dozen catalogs from major vendors. And now comes Catalogue by The Find (free), with over 40 catalogs — Williams-Sonoma, Crate & Barrel, Sephora, Nordstrom, Saks, eBags, Sundance, Uggs, and many more. The developer expects to have around 70 catalogs total within the next two months. These aren't simply pdfs of the paper catalog, but an attractive presentation tailored to the iPad. Features include the ability to search the whole collection, and a My Catalog area that lets you create a space with your favorite products from the various catalogs.
