    Print from an iPhone, Touch, iPad over Wi-Fi, it's possible

    The iPhone OS and Android have the first direct printing solutions, without going through the computer. HP is ahead, Canon, Epson and Lexmark are focusing their efforts on Apple. Review of solutions ... and their limits.

    Why print directly from your mobile? Because it is practical, fast, simple and efficient. More and more mobile phone owners are using their device to take and store photos, to read on the internet and check their mail as well. Thanks to these applications it is possible to produce very good quality prints on inkjet printers. Yes, but...

    These applications are reserved for the photo and exclude text files

    Available as a free download, these applications are simple and intuitive. They allow, thanks to a wireless connection, to print the photos stored on their mobile. For now, only photos can be printed. Nothing is planned for documents. Are they really easy to use? Yes. All you have to do is launch the application which directly displays your photo library, and click on "Print".


    Finger cropping, visible here, is only possible on the HP iPrint.

    It is within reach of all hands; a pity that the iPhone's sensor is not always up to a print in A4 format, or even 10x15 cm. On Android, some do better, but impession solutions are still too rare.

    | Lexmark : LexprintCompatible with all models of Lexmark printers We appreciate the software's compatibility with all models in the Lexmark range. However, we regret having to install an additional application on his PC, essential to establish communication between the printer and the mobile device: download on his computer. LexPrint Listener is available in Mac and Windows versions, and the application goes even further than those of other manufacturers. It offers to configure the print quality (draft, normal, photo mode), the print format (8 in all), but also the image adjustment and the desired number of copies.
