Fact #3,222 that nobody ever told me about motherhood...once you have children, you will spend at least a third of your waking hours buying things to keep said child clothed, fed and happy. Every once in a while, it even becomes necessary to buy something for yourself. That's where the Catalog Spree iPad App comes in--because we love apps for moms.
Few busy moms actually have the time to do all the legwork needed to procure everything they need in brick and mortar shops, and clicking from website to website, though fun, just takes too much time.
Enter Catalog Spree, a cool new shopping app for your iPad.
One app with more than 200 catalogs from 110+ retailers, including kids clothing from Tea Collection, Serena & Lily, and Hanna Andersson, and toys from American Girl, Hearthsong and Magic Cabin and even some basics like Birthday Express. Because you're dealing with an app, as opposed to a paper catalog, you can even zoom in on pictures and share your finds with friends on Facebook.
I was given a gift card to try out this service, and, I must say, clicking through the catalog and choosing what I wanted to buy was 1-2-3. One caveat though, since this is a new service, there are some glitches--my app crashed once or twice. I was, however, able to send an error report to the company right from the app.
