    i want to wirelessly print from my IPads and iPhone. I'm looking at Printer Pro, though I'm curious to hear from others regarding other options or this one?

    I use AirPrint. It's built into the OS. You don't need any extra apps for printing, unless you are using a printer that does not support air print (most do these days).

    If it's a printer without AirPrint I download the free app by the company (HP Print for the HP printer, etc). It usually enables scanning too, and it will offer all the functions on the printer.

    The Printer Pro app requires you have a local computer that is on to pass the printing through (assuming it's the same app I have). I do use it, but for printing things when I'm away from home to it.

    Printer Pro *supports* AirPrint and adds a lot of layout options and so on which make the printing experience a lot more like printing on a desktop. I wouldn't say most people need it but for some it's really useful regardless of what model printer you own.
