handyPrint: Print from an iPad without AirPrint Printer

Apple’s AirPrint technology makes it very convenient to print directly from an iOS device, without any hassle of configuration or driver installation. However, if your printer is not AirPrint-enabled, you can still use your existing printer to print from iPad or iPhone by taking advantage of a number of 3rd party softwares available for this purpose.

HandyPrint is one such application for Mac OSX that enables you to use non-AirPrint compatible printer from iPod/iPhone/iPad, running iOS 4.2 or above, via Mac.

Install HandyPrint on Mac and ensure that the Mac and iOS device are on the same Wi-Fi network. Any printer connected to the Mac will now be accessible from your iDevice! There is no need to install any extra app on your iPod/iPhone/iPad; however, the Mac must remain turned on for the attached printer to be available to the iOS device.

HandyPrint is donationware and is available for free trial download.
