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."
