Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) March 12, 2012
In just 24 hours, Catalogs.com for iPad has already seen a big lift in shopping activity with its inclusion in the new “Catalogs” category in the Apple iPad iTunes store.
Richard Linevsky, co-founder of Catalogs.com, says, “The addition of this new Catalogs category is really the first true shopping department that has been introduced in the iPad app store and we are delighted that it is focused on catalog shopping. It demonstrates just how relevant, important and active online catalog shopping is today.”
In 2010, Catalogs.com was the first company to launch an iPad app for creating, viewing and shopping catalogs. Catalogs.com for iPad is also the only app that can build an iPad optimized catalog for stores that do not have a print catalog. This technology makes an iPad friendly catalog technically and economically feasible for e-retailers and catalogers alike.
“Brands such as Footlocker, Bebe, Perry Ellis, Coors and Company, Hot Topic and Things You Never Knew Existed are engaging customers on Catalogs.com for iPad as a key part of their multi-channel marketing strategies,” says Linevsky. “Although the medium is changing, catalogs are more pertinent and compelling than ever, giving shoppers what they desire: a way to discover new products with every turn of the page.”
Since 1996, shoppers have universally recognized Catalogs.com as a trusted premier shopping service, attracting more than 1,000,000 unique visitors each month. The comprehensive Catalogs.com website, newly launched Catalogs.com for iPad and Catalogs.com online catalogs feature over 740 major and specialty retailers and provide shopping access via web, iPad and mobile phone platforms.
