LONG BEACH, Calif., Dec. 8, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Epson America, Inc., a leading provider of superior performing desktop printing solutions, and Thinxtream™ Technologies today announced that the PrintJinni™ for Epson® mobile printing App will be available for free and offers native support for the Apple® iPad™, making it easier for Apple mobile device users to print documents on the go.
PrintJinni for Epson allows Apple iPhone®, iPod Touch® and iPad users (iOS 3 and 4) to easily print Microsoft® Office, PDF, and JPEG attachments from Apple MobileMe(SM), Gmail™, Microsoft Exchange, and AOL® e-mail accounts to any Epson wireless all-in-one, including WorkForce®, Artisan® and Epson Stylus® NX models(1).
"Whether you're printing a document at home or a presentation for an important meeting, PrintJinni for Epson allows you to preview and print to any Epson wireless all-in-one near your Apple device," said Gregg Brunnick, group product manager, Consumer Ink Jets, Epson America, Inc. "Epson is committed to delivering superior printing performance to mobile device users, that's why we are also happy to offer expanded iPad printing capabilities and make the App free to our customers."
