AirPrint Through A Mac

If you don’t have an AirPrint-compatible printer, you can still print on your iDevices with the help of a Mac. Of course, you’ll need to keep said Mac on while printing :P

You have several options: Printopia ($20), Handyprint ($5 donation), and NetGear Genie (FREE). Free is good so NetGear Genie is it. It’s also the easiest to set up.

On Mac OS X:

  1. Download and install Genie.
  2. Start Genie and go to “AirPrint”. Select the printer you want to make available for AirPrint.

On your iDevice:

  1. On the pertinent app, select the “share” button.
  2. Select “Print”. This will take you to the Printer Options screen
  3. Select Printer
  4. Set the number of copies if you want
  5. Select “Print”

That’s it.
