Printing Done Right, with Simple Cloud Printing!
Many users routinely view and edit documents on their phones and tablets. Despite this, printing applications for mobile devices are not extremely common.
Thanks to XDA Member vivekkalady, those of us who need to print on the go now have another alternative with his latest application: Simple Cloud Printing. The application’s strongest point is its simplicity. According to vivekkalady:
First browse for the file. It will show a simple file manager (list View). Select the file and then select the type of file. Then it will show the web view of Google Account.
You can login into your account, so it will show the list of printers and you can start printing.
The application works using Google’s Cloud Print service, so make sure your printer is associated with your Cloud Print account. Having tested the application on my Galaxy Nexus, I can say that it does exactly what it’s supposed to, which is refreshing. It will even print PDFs, JPEGs, text, and word documents.
Head over to the original thread to give the application a spin.
