[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - EuroSmartz(R), the Apple(R) iPad(R) & iPhone(R) application development company, today announced another world first for the iPad and iPhone with the launch of version 1.8 of their flagship apps PrintBureau(TM) and PrintCentral(TM). With the latest version of either PrintCentral or PrintBureau loaded onto an iPad or iPhone, device owners will now be able to print directly to most existing wireless printers from any app that supports AirPrint - without the need for an ePrint enabled printer.
PrintCentral and PrintBureau bring a major break through in printing documents, email, web pages and much more to the iPad and iPhone. To date, direct printing from an iPad or iPhone via AirPrint has been restricted by limited printer support - now with the latest versions of PrintCentral & PrintBureau that is no longer the case.
Not just wireless printers:
The updates do not just apply to iPad or iPhone owners with wireless printers, anyone with a USB, Bluetooth, Network or other wifi printer can use the FREE EuroSmartz Mac or PC printer sharing software "WePrint" in conjunction with the apps to print. By using WePrint a customer does not need to touch or be near their Mac or PC, it is fully automated process and the device owner just needs to tap print on the iPad or iPhone and the printer will print. WePrint running on a Mac or PC also enables printing via 3G from anywhere in the world.
Ian Schenkel, CEO at EuroSmartz comments: "There is an increasing buzz around AirPrint and what it brings to the iPad & iPhone. PrintBureau & PrintCentral as stand alone apps have had the ability to print directly to most wifi printers for over a year. These new updates will combine this matured technology with AirPrint and enable direct printing support to be shared in the background on an iPad or iPhone with any iOS app that has AirPrint built in. This is a major breakthrough in the way people will be able to use and 'un-tether' their devices, making iPads and iPhones more useable than ever in day to day business life."
Pricing and Availability:
PrintBureau and PrintCentral version 1.8 are available now in the Apple iTunes App Store worldwide. PrintBureau costs USD $12.99, GBP 7.49 or 10.49 Euro, and PrintCentral for iPad is priced at USD $9.99, GBP 6.49 or 8.99 Euro. The updates for PrintBureau and PrintCentral will be free for existing customers.
EuroSmartz was founded by two brothers from New Zealand in 1994 and has excelled at developing software products across multiple platforms and operating systems. It was the first company to bring the functionality of printing photos, contacts, web pages and more to the iPhone when it released "Print" in late December 2008. Since that time EuroSmartz has become the number one provider of printing apps for the iPad, iPhone & iPod touch. EuroSmartz' flagship app "Print n Share" was selected by Apple to be featured in the "Office" iPhone TV commercial which aired throughout 2009. In 2010 EuroSmartz' other leading app "PrintCentral" was featured as "App of the Week" in the UK and European iTunes App Stores. Copyright (C) 1994-2011 EuroSmartz. All Rights Reserved.
