Magic Printer prints pages from an iPhone
Wellala has released a remote printing app for the iPhone and iPod touch, Print Magic. The app allows users to print content from the mobile device via Wi-Fi, without the need to first sync to a computer. It can print directly to network printers that support the Internet Printing Protocol (IPP), along with any printer capable of sharing from a Mac via Printer Sharing. In order to print content, users simply copy the data into the application or, when printing web pages, copy the URL.
Print Magic also allows users to print pictures that are stored in the iPhone or iPod touch library. The app interface provides tools to pinch, zoom or crop the images before printing. Supported photo sizes include 4x6 and larger, with output automatically optimized to fit the desired print size.
Print Magic is available to download directly from the App Store for $7. An upgrade, expected to be released soon, will expand support for additional printers.
