Printing from iPhone?

I have the iPlanner app on my iPhone5 that contains all my work shifts for 2013 in the form of a year planner. There is an option within the app to print out the year planner but im not sure how to do this.

What do I need to be able to print out this year planner from my iPhone? Do I just need my printer to be connected to my home network, or is there a way of connecting a cable from my iPhone to my printer?

Thanks

You need either a fully Airprint compatible printer ( I have the Epson 535W) which will seamlessly print form both iphine and iPad, or a workaround, as you say, connecting the printer to your network and printing from there. I can recommend the Epson, easy to set up, and no cables at all. It prints from all 3 Macs as well as my phone and iPad.

If you don't have an AirPrint printer like mentioned above, there is an app named Printopia that works really well too with any printer.

You do not need a printer with "airprint" capabilities. Many companies that make wireless printers make apps you can download and print from them. Like Brother for example. It does not have any airprint or special functions, it is just a regular boring wireless printer. They have a free app in the app store and it lets me print web pages, pictures, pdfs, screen shots, etc.

Thanks for everyones help. Ive managed to send my yearplanner as a pdf email to myself, so I can print it out that way.

But I would like to set my printer up so I can use it with my iphone, so your answers are helpful.

I installed the 'AirPrint for pc' mod on my pc. It makes any non wifi printer 'AirPrint' enabled. However, your PC has to be on for an idevice to see it.

Printer Pro was free a few weeks ago. Found my non-wireless printer (connected to my wife's iMac) immediately. No set up required and works like a charm.

The good thing about the AirPrint for PC is that it works with the native AirPrint. No special apps required.
