Of course, in order to use AirPrint you'll first need an officially supported AirPrint device, of which there is now a list some 200 strong! However, what if your printer isn't one of those officially supported printers? Ta... dah, dah.... you got it amigo... it's AirPrint Activator to the rescue.
The FairerPlatform itself put it this way:
"......, my Kodak AIO isn’t officially supported by AirPrint yet my family and I can print from our two Macs, two iPod touches, iPad and iPhone, and it’s all due to NetPuting’s AirPrint Activator. This free and completely trouble free OS X (Snow Leopard and Lion compatible) System Preference Pane installs in a flash and, well, it just works."
Personally, my printer, a Lexmark Pro 915, is already AirPrint compatible, but boy, oh boy, do I ever love the idea that no matter what printer I may want or need to use it can now be made, more-or-less, totally AirPrint compatible, whether it is, or is not officially supported.
In conclusion, ink jets have their place, and especially for printing photos they can't be beat, but now I'm planning on buying a multifunction laser printer, like maybe HP's new and inexpensive, HP TopShot LaserJet Pro, and now, thanks to AirPrint Activator, regardless of what printer I end up getting, at least now I know that I have one less thing to worry about, and all thanks to AirPrint Activator.
And that's my 2 cents 4 this rainy, and I wish I were back in Deutschland, Tuesday, May 15, 2012
