    Out of all the apps on the app store, how many do you think are AirPrint enabled?

    Just curious

    Lots. If an app can email something, then its as easy as a checkbox to make it AirPrint enabled..

    Oh hey, I have another question I was hoping someone could clear up while we're on the topic.

    If an app is priting-enabled, does that mean it is also airprint-enabled? I'm not referring to apps like PrintCentral, but rather basic apps like a sketch app.

    AirPrint is the ability for apps to use iOS printing API to print to many printers. This is how most iOS printing is done. PrintCentral printer to AirPrint printers and non-AirPrint printers using its custom drivers.

    Cool man, thanks. I wish there was a way to search the app store for only airprint enabled apps. :(
