The digital world is getting enormous, and paper printing seems to be on the verge of extinction, but it still happens that you need to print something on paper. There are so many quick and easy ways to share information. Thus we expect from a printing process to be fast and simple as well. It seems like Epson have found the way to make printing as straightforward as it’s possible.
The Epson iPrint app is designed to make your printing experience better. After installing this app, you will be able to work with your printer as you would work while standing in front of it. And all of these will be available to you from the iOS or Android device.
Epson iPrint allows you to make connections to Epson printers from your mobile device through any network.
iPrint enables a wide range of wireless operations between your Epson printer and other devices. With this application you can: print, scan documents and photos remotely; check printer’s status and ink levels; edit paper size and type; configure the number of copies and page range; etc.
The app has an extensive set of features. There's direct access to your device’s camera, so you can take a photo and print it right away. A built-in browser allows you to save web pages for later or print them instantly. With iPhoto you can also print from Cloud-based services like Google Docs, Evernote, Dropbox and Box.net. It’ll let you print not just JPEGs but PDFs and Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents. You can even buy ink or other printing supplies straight from the app.
The iPrint’s interface is designed for the functional convenience of its users. It looks simple enough and should be understandable to everybody. The interface is pleasant, and the menus are easy to follow. The Photo button links you to the Gallery with images grouped in the same order as on your device. The Saved Documents button provides you with access to on-device files. The Edit button at the lower left allows you to specify a directory. The supported documents button brings up a static preview with access to the usual array of printer settings and output preferences.
With all these menu buttons you will be able to control a printing process from such small details as the color settings or orientation to nozzle checking or head cleaning.
Opening iPhoto for the first time, you’ll need to select your printer in setup options. If none is selected, tapping on the top line brings up a screen that will search for printers on the LAN. It’ll allow you to input an IP address manually or access Epson Connect and Remote Print.
After you select the printer, the setup option displays the printer’s name, its status (ready to print) and the amount of ink in the four cartridges. When it’s done, your printer will be ready to work all-in-one: print, scan, fax.
With the Photos option, you can navigate through the photos stored on your device and select one or few photos to print. Rotate them, move around, transfer to center of the desired section or change settings before printing. Everything can be done with your mobile device. Just press the Print button whenever you’re done with editing, and you’ll get a beautifully printed photo in seconds.
Printing the document works similar to printing photos. You select a document and make printer setup selections. Then press the Print button, and it results into a nice printout in just a few seconds.
