In this episode of Tech Time with mikebed96, I demonstrate the Print n Share app, available for $8.99 on the Apple App Store. This app allows you to print from your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad to ANY printer, even USB printers! (In order to print to USB printers, you must download the free WePrint program onto your computer.)
Even though AirPrint is coming sometime this month with the release of iOS 4.2.1, you must have an AirPrint compatible printer or a Mac with AirPrint capabilities. If you don’t have either of these, then Print n Share is a GREAT app! You can print just about any document your device can view, any email, any webpage, and any image. It can also print out a page with a contacts information on it taken right from your Contacts app.
(Please note, the documents usually do not take as long to print as they did in this video. I believe that my WiFi router was being used in other parts of the house and was slowed down a lot. In past experiences, the files usually print really fast, even when going through the WePrint program on the computer.)
You can print to Wi-Fi printers, Bluetooth printers, networked printers, and USB printers*.
*Must have the free WePrint program on computer to print to a USB printer.

iPad Users: Here is a video showing some features iPhone and iPod touch users received in iOS 4.0, but iPads did not. My iOS 4.2.1 video only shows features new to iPhone and iPod touch. Here are some other features iPads will get: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6-KcwYKeoNs

Upcoming video… Documents To Go review! Documents to Go is a cheaper alternative to Apple’s Pages, Numbers, and Keynote apps. The entire iWork suite is $30.00!! To get a version of Pages, Numbers, and Keynote can cost only $15.00 with Documents To Go. Also, Documents To Go supports Microsoft Office, both older versions and the newer versions, while Apple’s apps only support their fellow Mac programs. If you try to export to Microsoft Office, you loose all formatting. STAY TUNED FOR THE RELEASE OF THE REVIEW AND DEMONSTRATION!
