15. Print from Your iPad

Chapter 15. Print from Your iPad

In many respects, the iPad can substitute for paper—instead of carrying around a bundle of dead trees, you can store thousands of documents on your iPad in handy, searchable formats such as PDF. Be that as it may, you may still need to print from your iPad.

Printing is an area where the iPad's non-computer nature is evident. There's no way to physically attach the iPad to a printer (via USB or Ethernet, say) and it lacks a system-wide printing infrastructure—it has no printer drivers, and its apps have no Print command.

Does that mean printing is impossible? Not at all! Industrious third-party developers have created a wide range of solutions. I discuss some examples in this section.
