After months of development and testing, we're thrilled to announce that BreezyPrint is now available in the Android Market. The download is free, and current users can add printing support to their Android phones at no extra charge.
Search for 'BreezyPrint' in the Android Market to download, or just scan this code with your Android phone:
In addition to the same email attachment and file printing support you've come to expect from our BlackBerry client, BreezyPrint for Android also lets you print:
- Webpages - just enter the URL of the page you want to print
- Clipboard contents
- Files from your Dropbox
We'll put up some demo screencasts soon, but for now, the screenshots below should give you an idea of what to expect. Let us know what you think!
Fax support has long been among our most popular customer requests, and we're excited to announce you can now use BreezyPrint to fax any document to any fax number, almost as easily as you can print. Here's how it works:
1) Find what you want to fax, press the menu button and select "Fax with BreezyPrint".
2) If it's an email with attachments, you'll be prompted to select which attachments, if any, you want to fax -- just like when you print.
3) Now you'll need to enter the number where your fax should go. You can paste a number you copied from one of your contacts, or just type it in.
That's all there is to it. Just like with printing, BreezyPrint lets you fax anything in absolutely as few steps as possible.
You'll need to add fax credits to your account by logging in at https://www.breezyprint.com/myaccount.php
in order to send faxes (rates vary, but get cheaper the more page credits you buy at once). We look forward to hearing about your experience with this new feature - let us know what you think!
You can download BreezyPrint for BlackBerry from App World or by clicking this link from your BlackBerry smartphone.
Apple announced today that it is going to bring certain kinds of printing capability to the iPad within the next few months. We're thrilled to see Apple finally responding to the overwhelming consumer demand for mobile printing, but since the announcement does run onto our turf a little bit (and before another hundred fans send us worried emails), we thought it would be worth pointing out a few benefits that remain exclusive to BreezyPrint:
- BreezyPrint works on all your other devices (i.e., not just the iPad), with nothing more to set up.
- BreezyPrint lets you print securely to printers on corporate networks without requiring you to join the corporate network.
- BreezyPrint can handle hundreds of different file types -- so when someone sends you a Visio drawing or some other file that the iPad can't view, you'll still be able to print it with BreezyPrint.
- Our global printer network (details still under wraps, but coming soon) will give you access to thousands of printers all around the world, again with no extra setup required.
In short, the new printing capabilities in iOS 4.2 are a welcome addition to the iPad's already impressive lineup of features - and we're confident that as more people get used to the ease of printing from their iPads, they'll see even more value in a service that significantly expands that capability.
