Monday was a great day if you had an iOS device, as the latest 4.2 firmware update was made available. I feel like I have been talking about AirPrint (one of the feature updates) too much, but there are things that need explaining. The first was how to use the new feature; the second was what were the compatible printers. Now I have something that I know you will want to know, Printopia for the Mac will make every printer compatible.
My HP printer is over a year old, and it is for that reason that it will not support the new AirPrint feature; this either meant purchasing yet another new printer or not worrying about printing from my iPhone 4 or iPad. So you can imagine how happy I am about Printopia?
If you have a Mac and an iOS device, then Printopia could be the best piece of software you have ever installed – ok I am making more of this than what it is. 9 to 5 Mac tells us not to worry about installing the software, as it will not make any changes to your file system.
The only downside I can see is having to pay $9.95 to be able to use AirPrint with all printers – some might say that is a small price to pay. I will not try and tell you that you should download this software, but I will say that spending $10 is better than spending 10 to 20 times that on a new printer – would you not agree?
