Ecamm has announced Printopia, system utility that runs on your Mac to share its printers to any capable iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. Printopia will also add a virtual printer, allowing you to save print-outs to your Mac as PDF files.
Wireless Printing To Your Mac's Printers
Whether you have an inkjet printer plugged into your Mac, a laser printer plugged into your router or even a network printer, if your Mac can print to it, Printopia will share it. Printopia translates for your printer, allowing it to speak to your iPhone or iPad even if it's not an AirPrint-compatible printer. Printopia even supports many password-protected printers.
Easy, Instant Set-up
Ecamm puts ease of use first. Double-click to install Printopia, and within seconds see most any connected printers on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. You'll also see Printopia's "Send To Mac" and "Send To Dropbox on Mac" virtual printers. That's it!
Save Paper With A Printopia Virtual Printer
Printopia adds a "Send To Mac" printer to your network. This virtual printing option will save a PDF or JPG file directly to your Mac. No need to waste paper next time you need to print a confirmation page.
Print To Your Mac's Dropbox Folder
Dropbox.com users can print PDF and JPG files directly to the Mac's Dropbox folder. Dropbox will take care of syncing your printouts for access anywhere you go.
Works With Leopard and PowerPC Macs
Leopard (Mac OS X 10.5) and PowerPC Mac users won't get left out in the cold. Printopia is happy to serve you.
No Need To Modify Your Operating System
Beware of printing solutions that re-configure your Mac's printing system. Printopia runs independently from printer sharing, and and does not modify your Mac or iOS operating system in any way.
You can purchase Printopia for $9.95 or try the demo version free for 7 days.
