wirelessprinting122Our mobile smartphones and tablets are becoming a major part of life and our approach to getting work done, it was only a matter of time we would be able to print directly from them.

Of course you can always email a document from your device directly to your desktop computer, and then print it from there. But the vast majority of printers currently available on the market have the capability of receive wireless print jobs from your iPhone or Android Device.

Basically, as long as your phone is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your printer, you can use AirPrint (iPhone) or Google Cloud Print (Android). Some of the latest HP and Canon Printers (MG5660) even allow you to connect your phone to a Wi-Fi hotspot generated by your printer in case you don’t have a sophisticated home Wi-Fi network (If for instance you use a USB Dongle to connect to the internet).

So what if your printer doesn’t have this fancy new Wi-Fi feature but you still want to take advantage of Wi-Fi printing? You still have a few options if you have a Wi-Fi router and your printer is connected to a computer. Simply share the printer through Windows or Mac OS X, the printer will the been available to anyone connected to the network. Print N Share and Printer Pro are another two different applications which also share your printer on your network.

These are just a few of the printing options available to you from your mobile and tablet devices. Just think, you can print from the comfort of your couch or even whilst waiting in traffic! Ask us in-store for more information.
