Lexmark launches Mobile Printing app for iPhone and Android

Print from a smartphone or tablet that's connected to the same Wi-Fi network as a printer

Lexmark has unveiled an app for Google Android devices as well as Apple iPhones, the iPod touch and iPads, that allows users to print to any printer connected to the same Wi-Fi network as their device.

The Lexmark Mobile Printing App, which is free to download from Apple's iTunes Store and the Android Market, works with "most Lexmark laser printers introduced since 2005" as well as the firm's Pro715 and Pro915 inkjet printers.

Lexmark said the app makes it easy to 'locate' a printer on a network, add it to the list of preferred devices, and subsequently send pdf, tiff, or jpeg files to be printed. The printer manufacturer also believes the app, has simplified wireless printing to meet the needs of any size business.

"Lexmark understands the influence that cloud-based technology is exercising over tablet and smartphone users, both on a professional and personal level," said Tony Lomax, the product marketing manager at Lexmark UK and Ireland.

"Our new Lexmark Mobile Printing App provides Android and Apple iOS smartphone and tablet users with added flexibility to send selected files for on-demand printing whilst their device and Lexmark printer are on the same Wi-Fi network. This promises a better connected worker, irrespective of where they are in the office."

The Printer manufacturer already offers a range of Smart Solutions apps that enable users of Lexmark's Platinum, Pinnacle, Prestige and interact web-connected all-in-one (AIO) printers, as well as its newest device, the Genesis S815, to print documents, information and photos as well as access social networks and other websites,  direct from the device, without the need for it to be connected to a PC.
