Timmy found an iPad. This is what happened.


He looks proud, doesn't he?

Good news, iPad-enabled Geeks!

Timmy discovers caffeine.

ThinkGeek's catalog is now available via the Google Catalog app for the iPad! Now you can multitouch your way to shiny loot from the comfort of pretty much anywhere. (We recommend a hammock, or a comfy couch.)

Here's how to get in on this goodness:

  • Access iTunes using your iPad and search for Google Catalogs, OR
  • Click this handy link: Google Catalogs.
  • Make with the downloading.
  • Search under "Gifts" for the ThinkGeek catalog.
  • Open the catalog. Marvel at the world of wonder that lay before you.

There are only a couple of things that you might have to look for. The descriptions of each item on the main catalog pages are kind of short, until you click a small tag icon next to an item. Check out a shiny example page here.

Clicking that tag icon takes you to a juicily detailed page from which you can launch yourself to our site if you want to make something yours, or bypass the main part of the catalog entirely and just surf from info-laden page to info-laden page using the icons at the bottom (though you'll miss out on the best pictures that way). Take a look at the fully detailed caffeinated goodness here.

That's all you need to know! Pretty simple, huh?

Let us know if you have any questions or see anything weird, but the catalog should be pretty intuitive for you iPad-enabled ones.

meaningless icon! An outrage! Keeping us aliens away from the Thinkgeek catalog by using an app not available overseas! This sucks.

meaningless icon! @Faffe Sorry! We try our best to make sure everyone can have access to everything, but sometimes there are things that get in our way. Trust me, we're trying very hard for World Domination. Even with the Google catalog.

meaningless icon! So yes there's no Android support, but please send your thx to Google for this first, before making porr lil Timmy feel so bad.... ;-p (Try clicking the download link on this page and witness the awful redirect) http://www.google.com/catalogs/about/## As an Android user (and the hugest BTTF fan there is) I think that as a consolation prize, Timmy should post that freakin awesome TG Catalogue cover *FOR ALL TO ENJOY*!! winky face.....
