Google might have decided to kiss Google Dictionary goodbye, but that does not mean Google has no new additions up their sleeves to keep computer users happy. Having announced Google Catalogs earlier this morning, this free application will target tablet owners who love to do nothing better than to browse through digital versions of their favorite print catalogs. Basically, you are able to do your part in saving the environment with Google Catalogs as this application will let you subscribe to paper-free versions of your favorite catalogs, and you will be kept up to date whenever there is a spanking new issue in the pipeline.

Needless to say, Google Catalogs delivers a new level of interactivity that you cannot find in traditional paper-based catalogs, where you can opt to zoom in on particular products to get up close and personal, tap on tags to learn more about it, or even watch a video that performs a demonstration. Among the vendors whom you can check out on Google Catalogs include Anthropologie, Bare Escentuals, Bergdorf Goodman, Crate and Barrel, L.L. Bean, Lands’ End, Macy’s, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Pottery Barn, Saks Fifth Avenue, Sephora, Sundance, Tea Collection, Urban Outfitters and Williams-Sonoma.

Of course, there is one thing traditional paper catalogs can do which Google Catalogs can’t – you can always use it to wrap fish from the market, or to recycle it in other creative ways. With Google Catalogs, you can’t do any of that apart from turning your waterproof tablet into a coaster.
