Apple just pushed out iBooks 1.2, a modest update to their universal e-reader app for iOS which lets you organize your e-books into Collections, print PDF documents and notes directly from the app via AirPrint and more. Here’s a look at what’s new!
Airprint Hacktivator--a small but brilliant program that makes any printer connected to your Mac AirPrint compatible--has been updated to Version 1.7, making the invaluable system workaround less intrusive to your Mac's OS X operating system while at the same time maintaining the same level of awesome. For those of you who have been pining for a way to wirelessly print from your iOS device, you're going to want to download this free piece of software as fast as your internet connect can manage it.
Wednesday was a day of disappointment for many -- at least those of us currently rocking the iOS 4.2 gold master who were looking forward to using the new AirPrint service, which was widely believed to require yesterday’s Mac OS X 10.6.5 release. But where there’s a will, there’s a way.
If you’ve been waiting anxiously to get your hands on iOS 4.2 to take advantage of the highly touted AirPrint functionality, you may want to sit down while reading this -- Apple may be delaying the feature “indefinitely” for Mac and Windows PCs, meaning it will only work with a handful of newer printers from HP.
Printing is finally coming to iOS with an update in November, but third-party developers clearly feel that Apple’s official solution leaves something to be desired. Among them is Readdle, who is bringing full-featured printing to the iPad with a new app expected imminently.
Developers are a lucky lot. They get to play with Apple's latest iOS before the rest of us. Of course it's beta software and they're expected to write apps based on it, but it's still a pretty cool gig.
Well developers, today Apple announced the immediate availability of iOS 4.2 beta.
