The new iPhone app, Brother iPrint&Scan, is free to donwload and allows users to wirelessly print from iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, just so long as they have the latest Brother multifunction inkjet printer.
Speaking about the new smartphone app, Phil Jones, Sales and Marketing director at Brother UK, said:
“Smart phones are becoming an essential modern day business tool and we are pleased to be able to offer even more convenient features for our customers.”
All of Brother's latest multifunction inkjet printers, introduced in 2009, should be compatible with the iPrint&Scan app through their wireless interface. Network interface printers will be compatible with the app when connecting to their wireless network.
Brother is also developing other versions of the app with Google Android 1.6 (and above) smartphones soon to be released.
Phil Jones added:
“iPhone users have been waiting for an app like this for quite some time. We’re really pleased to be at the forefront of innovative printing technology, providing businesses with the means to succeed.”
The iPrint&Scan application is avavailble right now in English, but plans to introduce French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and Dutch versions by the end of 2010 are in the pipeline.
