Following years of speculation, Microsoft finally unleashed a trio of Office apps on iPad a few weeks back, with Word for iPad, Excel for iPad, and PowerPoint for iPad all offering good-to-great touch-enabled takes on the long-running productivity favorites. Curiously, though, all three launched without printing support, which made them not-fully-ideal options for users looking to untether from a traditional computer. Luckily, that oversight has been swiftly corrected, as Microsoft announced today via its Office blog that all three apps can now print over the air to any AirPrint-compatible printer.
iOS has been crafted into the ultimate mobile work station, especially with the addition of the iWork mobile suite for the iPad. You can create and edit documents in Pages, make a slideshow for an important meeting in Keynote, and put together graphs and stats with Numbers. When you're finished, you can print everything out with AirPrint. Clearly, you don't need your Mac with you to get work done on the go.
But, not every printer is AirPrint-compatible, which is a serious bummer for the serious worker bee, or student who needs to quickly get their paper printed out before deadline. That's why we're going to help: whether your current set up supports AirPrint or not, we'll show you three ways to get those digital documents into tangible paper form one way or another.

It's here, it's here! iOS 4.3 dropped and it's ready for your iOS devices. But like most Apple updates, the update is full of features that Apple either doesn't advertise, or can be difficult to find if you don't spend the day rummaging through an entire iOS device's menu system.
On the iPhone you can now share nine photos, Copy five photos, and print, well at least 250 photos, we got tired of tapping on pictures. On the iPad you can Email five photos and Copy and Print, well, we stopped after 300 photos were selected. Bad news for printing, you still have to have an AirPrint-enabled HP printer or use AirPrint Activator.
Wireless all-in-one inkjet printers are all the rage these days, and from a quick glance at the specs, you’d be led to believe that they’re mostly the same.
