FingerPrint from Collobos makes AirPrint printing easy

Boot Camp feature for Friday, March 22, 2013

You don’t need a new printer to print from an iPhone or iPad.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    If you have an iPhone or iPad and haven’t been able to use Apple’s AirPrint with the printer you have now, one of the easiest and most affordable solutions is called FingerPrint from Collobos Software.  How does it work?   CEO Scott Herscher says you download and install FingerPrint on your Mac or PC…

“It will then find all of the printers you have connected to your Mac or PC and those can be USB printers, they could be wireless printers, it doesn’t matter as long as you can print to them from your Mac or PC.   And then it will perform a little bit of magic and make them show up on your iPhone or iPad.  You could kind of think of FingerPrint as an AirPrint server.”

The price?  About twenty dollars.   You can find it at Collobos.com.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.  I’m Fred Fishkin.
