Printing From Your iPad: Three Options

PCWorld: Printing From iPad – Three Options

PCWorld reviews three iPad (and iPhone/iPod Touch) printing solutions: PrinterShare, ePrint and DocPrinter. None is perfect, but they work.

“It may not be easy to print from your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, but it can be done–provided you seek out the help of a third-party app. But which one should you turn to for help? Here’s a look at three apps vying to assist you with all your mobile printing needs.

PrinterShare is an awkward app to set up; besides installing it on your Mac, you also have to register an account. After that, on your Mac, you have to specify which printer (or printers) you want to share, whether you want to hide your printer from search results (more on this in a moment), find the remote printer as registered online, select the printer (which is now displayed in two panes of the main Mac application window, and then configure the printer (paper size, “notify me on job completion,” encrypt or not, and so on). In addition, a third window appears when you click on the Mac application’s “incoming” button, and that provides you with a variety of options, including setting default permissions (automatically download and print from approved users, wait for approval, remove, and so forth).”
