San Francisco, Calif., September 28, 2011 – TheFind (www.thefind.com), a leading mobile, tablet, and social commerce innovator and search engine, today released version 1.5 of its popular TheFind: Shopping mobile app for Android smart phones.  Already used by millions of shoppers, TheFind: Shopping for Android version 1.5, adds the ability to browse popular catalogs and weekly circulars from retailers such as Crate & Barrel, Best Buy, Nordstrom, Zappos, Saks, J. Crew and more than 70 others.  This new functionality complements the app’s existing search, barcode scan, and local shopping capabilities.

“Mobile shopping is most useful when it can be your in-store companion, reassuring you about the price, providing additional information like product reviews, and helping you locate nearby stores which may also offer the same products,” said Ramneek Bhasin, TheFind’s VP & GM of mobile.  “Today we are taking this concept a giant step further by making it easier to discover new and showcased products from popular retailer’s catalogs while you’re out and about.  More practically, we are making it easy for you to bookmark the products you saw in print, tablet or smartphone based catalogs while you were shopping at home.”

 

Available for immediate download in the various Android app marketplaces, the catalogue browsing functionality is limited to larger screen Android phones.  These models include the Google Nexus-S, Samsung Galaxy, and HTC EVO phones.  More information can be found at http://www.thefind.com/apps.
