Android Printing App

Android Printing App

The Android mobile operating system is the world’s most popular device operating system. Many users not only use it for personal productivity and personal apps, but they use it as their primary mobile business device. With this comes the need for cloud printing solutions. But how does Android printing work exactly?

With PrinterOn cloud printing solutions, you only need to download the PrinterOn Android mobile printing app to have immediate access to thousands of PrinterOn-enabled printers around the world or your office printers.

The mobile printing app provides several methods to quickly locate a specific printer from among the thousands available:

  • Search by location:
    Use your device’s Location Services to locate nearby printers, or search specific geographic locations.
  • Search by keyword:
    Search the PrinterOn Directory for a printer with specific printer name, or search for a hotel name.
  • Search for network printers:
    You can also use the network discovery features to scan your local network for available printers.
  • Search for secured printers:
    Configure the mobile app with server and user account information and you can restrict your search to those printers you are authorized to access.

Secure Release Anywhere

Release any print job from the PrinterOn Android mobile printing app from any printer that is part of a Secure Release Anywhere™ pool regardless of submission method. Jobs can be submitted via web, app, email or desktop.

Print Preview

The PrinterOn Android mobile printing app now provides server side previews which enables you to view documents such as Microsoft Word and Excel files. The print preview feature lets you view your document before submitting it for cloud printing, making sure it is exactly what you want before hitting the print button. Choose which pages you want to print and how many copies you need.

QR Code Release

Your PrinterOn service creates a unique QR code for each printer that you can print out and attach to enabled printers within your organization. After submitting a document for printing, you can scan any QR code on any PrinterOn-enabled printer inside or outside of your organization. This will bring up the release screen that will allow you to print your documents at your printer of choice.
