    Default Orion Catalog App



    I think this will be our future. In the near future there will be no more catalogs at all in the mail. I received an email from Orion this morning announcing their new Catalog App available for my iPad and iPhone. I downloaded it and I must admit, I like it better than the paper version and equally as nice as the website.

    What a dream machine those catalogs were. A while back I bought a couple of very old Sear's catalogs. They are a blast to flip through. That was back when you could get everything that you needed to survive from a Sear's catalog.

    Hi Chuck, Scott, Bill, and Keith. All kidding aside, I remember looking at the Sears Christmas Catalogue when I was very young, and looking at the Lionel trains pictured. Anybody on here remember that?

    Hey all. Speaking of the Sears Christmas catalogue, I recall now, that they also used to list small refractors and reflectors. What a dream book that was for a kid back then.

    Chuck, I have been using it the last few days as well. It seems to be pretty feature rich in that you can do things with it than just flip pages. I like catalogs (paper ones) but this one goes a step further. I thought to myself "yeah, an app that is a catalog....yippie" (sarcastically intoned). I find that I really like this app, I was just going to play with it more before I said anything. It is very easy to use, just as convenient as a paper catalog, and has the interactivity of the website.
    I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one who likes it!
