Apple’s Free iOS App of the Week: Printer Pro


Printer Pro by Readdle is Apple’s free app of the week. The app normally retails for $7.99 and is free for this week only.

The app allows users to print to any printer, which is Wi-Fi enabled or connected to a PC or Mac, from their iPhone or iPad. Readdle has included detailed print options so that you can print your documents exactly the way you want.

Once installed, Printer Pro appears in the “Open In…” list on your device. This lets you print documents from Mail, PDF Expert and many other applications on your iPad that supports this function. Using “Open In…” approach you can print files from many popular online storages: Dropbox and Google Drive. It just a matter of several taps to download your file via free Dropbox or Google Drive application and send it to printer.


To print a web page, just change “http” to “phttp” in the address bar in Safari and tap Go. The page will immediately be opened in the Printer Pro with print button right above your finger. You can print web based documents as well using this approach.

During the first day of being offered as Apple’s promotional free app of the week, Readdle’s marketing director Denys Zhadanov said the app has been downloaded 631,000 times.

Printer Pro is available as a free download (normally $7.99) from the App Store. The app requires any iOS device running iOS 7 or later, and it has been optimized for the iPhone 5, 6, and 6 Plus.
