Mobile Printing - Technology Tip #2

A question has come up many times to me about printing from the iPad/iPhone. While I am not a big fan of printing from these devices, there have been improvements to iPad printing. First of all, not all apps support printing from the iPad, but most of the office documents, google documents, pdf's, and web pages will work.

So, if you need to print to a network printer inside your district and you have Canon Networked Printers or Samsung Printers, then below are some steps for you to print to a network printer. If you have other networked printers in your district from a different vendor, then you may want to search the Apple Store to see if they have a mobile printing app.

Here is how it works.
  1. Go to the App Store
  2. Search for Samsung Mobile Printing or Canon Mobile Printing
  3. Find and install the correct app
  4. Set up the printer - it should search the network and find the printer - note that you must be on the same network as the printer is on. If not, then the app will not be able to find your printer.
  5. Try to print a document - I did print to both printers using the app.
