Lexmark Releases New Wireless Printing App for iPad and iOS

Share This:


Lexmark Mobile Printing is new app that offers wireless printing to Lexmark printers from the iPad and iPhone.

It lets you print PDF documents and photos in supported formats – JPG, GIF, BMP, PNG, and TIFF.

With Lexmark Mobile Printing you can send documents and images directly to the printer on your wireless network. When you are ready to print, simply share it with the Lexmark Mobile Printing application. You will be prompted to choose a printer via network search, QR Code, or manual entry. You will also be able to set print options before sending.

Though this sounds like a useful app for Lexmark printer owners, the app’s description makes it difficult to tell exactly which Lexmark printers are supported. It lists supported print devices as ‘Lexmark printers and MFPs that have IPP and direct image printing’ and suggests visiting suppot.lexmark.com for a detailed list. But that just lands you on the home page for support, with no obvious link to the mentioned list. I searched for ‘IPP’ and for ‘direct image printing’ and a few other terms and still found nothing useful.

Hopefully Lexmark will provide a proper, direct link to the supported printers list soon, as the current link is pretty much useless.

In the meantime, there are existing ways to make just about any printer at all work with Apple’s AirPrint for wireless printing from the iPad.

Here’s an App Store link for Lexmark Mobile Printing; it’s a free app.

  1. Why does this need to exist? Printing on the iPad is streamlined, users shouldn’t need to interface with a separate application in order to print..

  2. RT – that’s weird – did you find it in the end?
    not sure about the lexmark print app, print by eurosmartz seems like a better deal for me
