    Anyone know of an iPhone app that allows you to print an e-mail, phot, etc that's on the iPhone directly to a WiFi printer without use of a PC or Mac?

    I'm thinking that as teh iPhone and WiFi printer are on the wireless network in my home there might be an app to send the print job from the phone to the printer. I don't really want to leave my Mac booted up all the time.

    I've found a couple of apps that do this as long as the Mac (or PC) is running with some middleware. Any app that does this without another computer involved?

    supposedly only works with printers that support the internet printing protocol (IPP), which a number of networked printers do not.

    Brand new app Print suppose to be able to print to any printer on any computer (Mac or PC). Looks promising!

    Canon has a free App. Works with only Canon printers though.

    It appears to be US only at the moment, but don't get too excited, it only supports MP560, MP640 or MP990 printers. Nothing else supported, including my comparably ancient MP210...sigh. I've been waiting for ages for Canon to release an app, and now, when they do, it supports 3 printers. Well done Canon.

    Another option you might want to try is ePrint. Try the free version first to test it out. I couldn't get it to work with my MP210 connected to my airport express though. It seems pretty feature rich, if you can get it to work.
