Printer Pro 1.5 Improves Printing from iOS Devices
- By Dian Schaffhauser
A Ukraine-based development company has just come out with an updated app that lets users print from iOS devices. Readdle, which has multiple apps for the iPhone, iPad, and Mac, has released Printer Pro 1.5, a new version of its program for printing e-mail attachments, annotated documents, Web pages, photos, and other types of media.
With the new version of Printer Pro, user can manually set up page ranges and page margins and preview the text layout before printing. It also allows the user to print PDF documents with markups, hand-drawn notes, signatures, and embedded forms from a mail or PDF reader.
The app can print to a WiFi printer or a printer connected to a Mac or PC via a free "helper" application that runs on the computer and lets Printer Pro share the computer's default printer. A free "lite" version of the app allows the user to test a given printer with the program before purchasing the full edition.
The iPad version of the utility is $6.99. The iPhone edition is $4.99.
Readdle is the developer of Scanner Pro, a popular four-and-a-half-star-rated scanning app for the iPhone.
