  1. I hope that Argos has given significant thought to the implementation of this app, and isn't just seeing it as a gimmick. However, the signs are promising as the current multi-channel marketing efforts of the Argos catalogue are very effective indeed, eg: check and reserve. I just hope that Argos don't forgot about those of us without iPhones who would like something similar for other platforms, eg: Windows Mobile or Android.
