Hewlett-Packard on Monday launched an application that allows users to print pictures wirelessly from an iPhone.
The application, iPrint Photo, allows pictures stored on an iPhone to be printed using HP’s inkjet printers attached to a Wi-Fi network.
Users can launch the application on an iPhone, select a photo by touching it, after which a print command is sent to the inkjet printer over a Wi-Fi network. The software also runs on the iPod Touch device.
Currently, the software enables only 4-by-6-inch (10-by-15-centimeter) photo prints and resizes images accordingly. The application is available for download from the App Store for free.
The software has some limitations. Only JPEG images are printed by the application, and it does not support any other image or documents formats for now. The printing may also be cancelled if a user receives a call or a text message on the iPhone.
