If you own an iPhone, iPad, or iPod and a Brother multifunction printer, now you can print and scan from one to the other. Specifically, Brother iPrint&Scan lets you send photos from your device to your printer over your home Wi-Fi network. You can choose an existing photo from your album or snap one on the spot with the camera.
The app also supports full-color and black-and-white scanning from your all-in-one to your iPhone. That's a great way to capture photos and documents for on-the-go viewing. Scanned items can be saved to your photo album, e-mailed in JPEG or PDF format, or opened in other compatible apps (which aren't listed anywhere that we can find--on our iPhone, iBooks and Stanza were our two available destinations.)
iPrint&Scan is a snap to configure and use. It quickly and effortlessly detected my Brother MFC-490CW printer (one of 17 compatible models), and with a few taps we were printing and scanning photos. The app gives you control over basic settings, like paper size, media type, and number of copies. Best of all, iPrint&Scan is free. If you own a compatible Brother all-in-one, it's a must-have.
And don't overlook more-universally compatible print apps like Print Magic, which can handle not only photos, but also Web pages and the Clipboard.
Brother iPrint&Scan is a free application that enables you to print from and scan to your iOS device (iPhone / iPod touch / iPad). Use your local wireless network to connect your iOS device to your Brother printer or all-in-one. Using a Google account you are able to print from anywhere with the remote print function.
