    How many of you think that Printopia, the app that allows your iDevice to print to any printer, and other applications like Printopia could be obsolete with the next generation of iOS or next generation Mac OS X?

    I ask this because it seems there could be the possibility that full AirPrint would be implemented in the next iOS (my guess, no real proof) and it would seem like then spending $20 to buy Printopia would be for naught.

    Thoughts?

    I paid for Printopia and haven't regretted it. I still have a G5 iMac as my main computer so the hack won't work as you need Snow Leopard. It also lets you print to my Mac or Dropbox folder as a PDF.

    The windows hack, do you need to use their version on iTunes, or can you use the version already installed?

    The price of this went up. It was only $7 dollars not to long ago. At this point I would also try the other version.

    I bought Printopia.

    I like ability to print to PDF/JPG and have those files sent to applications or folders.

    I'm not sure if I would have paid $20 though.
