handyPrint™ is a 64 bit Mac OSX application that allow you to print from your iPods, iPads and iPhones on printers that do not support the AirPrint protocol.
handyPrint v4.1 is, yet again, a major upgrade from our past versions. I can say that it is our most significant update so far. Most of the application has been re-written to offer better handling of AirPrint jobs from your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
The most significant change is the new print engine. We have totally changed how we do printer sharing. You will no longer need to share your printers for them to be made available via AirPrint. You only need to have them available on the Mac running handyPrint and they will automatically be shared.
The second big change is the introduction of unlimited virtual printers. You can now have multiple virtual printers to “Save as PDF to folder…” and also to “Open with application…”:
To add a new virtual printer simply click the “Add virtual printer…” button below the list and select the virtual printer you want to add. You are not happy with the name? Either right click on the virtual printer name and select “Rename virtual printer” or click the “Manage printers…” button and select the “Rename virtual printer…” option.
To remove a virtual printer either use the right click option or select it and click the “Remove virtual printer…” option under “Manage printers…”. It is that simple. You can watch the short youtube video below that demonstrate the feature:
