Flipboard launches shopping catalogs

11

There’s something curiously addictive about skimming through catalogs of the latest fashions and electronics sales when they arrive at your door each weekend, and Flipboard is now trying to tap into that very experience. In an update today on both iOS and Android, Flipboard will begin to allow users and companies to create shopping catalogs complete with bright red price tags that link directly to where an item can be purchased. When a product is added to Flipboard, the service will now begin trying to detect what its price is, and itll automatically display that information right beside it on the page. It’s easy to imagine that one day Flipboard might know your credit card number and let you make purchases from directly inside of a magazine — it’s a terrifying thought for impulse shoppers, but something that Flipboard says isn’t on the roadmap (not yet, at least).
