Print From Anywhere with Your Apple or Android Mobile Device

  • Wireless printing is widely available
  • Print directly from a mobile device even without an internet connection
  • Works on most wi-fi enabled printers

Back in 2012, Apple added a software update known as AirPrint for their MacOS and iOS devices. The update made it so Apple products could print wirelessly through Wi-Fi with compatible printers. However, when it was first released, the number of printers were few and far between.

In the six years since its release, AirPrint has come a long way through quality-of-life updates and the addition of compatible printers. While it was originally only capable of working with a few specific HPs, it now operates within a large library of printers from brands such as HP, Canon, Brother, Dell, Samsung and more– resulting in over 1,100 compatible printers as of 2014.

It’s safe to say a great deal has changed in that time. For Apple users, AirPrint has become a staple for everyday life. With AirPrint, you can use your iPhone, iPad, and Macbook to easily print any documents you may need on the fly.

The technology behind AirPrint is reliant on Apple Bonjour. According to Tech Target’s, Margaret Rouse, Apple Bonjour is a group of networking technologies designed to help devices and applications discover each other on the same network. Bonjour is typically found on MacOS and iOS devices such as iPhone and Macbook; however, if a user downloads Apple software, like Safari or iTunes, they can have it on their Windows machines.

Android device users shouldn’t feel left out. Wireless mobile printing apps offered by many printer and mobile device manufacturers will allow most phones and tablets to print via wi-fi. HP’s multifunction printers can even allow documents to be emailed directly to the printer. Google and Samsung both have wireless print solutions for Android phones, so there’s no need to use the Apple solution if you don’t wish to.

Since the introduction of AirPrint, many third-party applications have begun to take advantage of the feature and technology as well. While companies such as HP, have created applications that let users print from their mobile devices, there are also companies in the reconditioning business that let you print wirelessly.

With companies like AMT taking advantage of the technology behind wireless printing, reconditioning businesses’ lives have gotten a lot easier. While AirPrint became the benchmark for wireless printing, AMT’s native applications like ReconPro and Repair360 provide a way for you to print anything from orders to estimates, invoices, and more– in-app, and at the click of a button.

Management software that lets you print wirelessly from your computer or mobile device minimizes the amount of time you spend on the little stuff when running your business. It’s excellent for printing invoices and receipts, managing technicians and vendors, tracking vehicle processes, and alerting you to bottlenecks and problem areas on both your desktop and mobile devices– all while being able to print and manage information in-app, even without an internet connection. That’s right, no need to rely on Internet or mobile data connections. As long as the printer is wi-fi enabled, your device can connect and print whatever you need,
