    Hi, I just got a new WiFi printer, I am wondering how I can print anything such as emails photos from my iPhone? Right now I rely on a piece of software installed on my Mac Pro (The one that connected to the printer) the problem is that the Mac Pro has to be on all the time for the iPhone to print. Is there an app the allows me to print without going through the Mac Pro?

    The printer has to be Airprint compatible if you don't want to print directly from your phone. I think HP may have an app that would make any networked printer compatible but it's not very good. Here's a list of supported printers.
