Canon Australia today announced an iPhone app that will allow users to print photos directly from the smartphone. The Easy Photo-Print App is already available in the US, UK and Canada, and can be downloaded for free from the Australian iTunes Store from tomorrow.

The Easy Photo-Print App for iPhone and iPod Touch is currently compatible with the Canon PIXMA MP990, PIXMA MP640 and PIXMA MP560 inkjet multifunctions. Other wireless Canon printers like the PIXMA MX860 and multifunctions that don't have integrated Wi-Fi are not yet supported.

Once connected to a compatible printer, the Easy Photo-Print App will allow users to print existing photos on the iPhone or iPod Touch's camera roll, or shoot a photo and send to the printer from the app. Basic print settings like media size, type and borders will be available for configuration, but not print quality.

"Canon continues to make the photo printing experience as seamless and easy as possible with the addition of new technologies such as the Canon Easy-Photo Print Application," said Beryl Thomas, Canon Australia's PIXMA brand manager. "Now everyday images captured instantly can be printed from almost anywhere to be shared with friends and family."

HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
