Document Printing Now Possible from the iPad Using Readdle

Just over a month ago, Apple announced that an I-operating system update scheduled for November 2010 would make it possible to print documents from the iPad. But, developers are not willing to wait till then before unlocking further capabilities of the Apple iPad. Readdle; which already has two popular apps in the App Store is scheduled to release a printing app known as Readdle Printer Pro. Its other popular apps include the Readdle Docs and the PDF Expert.

Readdle, the company which has launched a massive campaign to give the Printer Pro exposure notes that the app will be able to print from all file types and in different formats. It will also be able to seamlessly interface with a number of iPad applications so that you can print things like e-mail attachments or photos directly from your gallery. So, printing will be possible from anywhere on the iPad because it will be available through the “open in” tab of the different applications.

As we write this, the Readdle Printer Pro is already available through Apple App Store and goes for just $6.99. Your i-operating system just has to be running on the version 3.2.2 or later in order to use this application.

For greater functionality, Readdle Printer Pro is capable of supporting printing from a Windows based or Mac computer when connected via USB and wirelessly through enabled printers. Two great options available with this app are the cloud computing integration and “open in” function. For cloud computing technology, it is possible to call up files directly from cloud services like iDisk, MobileMe and Dropbox when you need to print them. The “Open in” function is always on in integrated apps including several mail clients, ReaddleDocs and Dropbox.

So, it can be noted that while Apple has wasted too much time of providing a printing solution for the iPad, Readdle has risen up to the challenge and would be the first to reap revenue from iPad printing applications. If Apple would dislodge the Printer Pro by the time it releases its own app, it must be able to give much greater value at same or a lower cost as the Printer Pro offers. Anyway, November is just a few days away from now, so let’s sit back and watch how it plays out when Apple comes to the market with its printing solution.

Finally, Readdle is aiming big also at the regular computer segment. Currently, it offers the Printer Pro desktop as a free download on its website, thus making it possible to perform these actions while on your desktop.
