Airprint

How to make any printer work with AirPrint on the Mac

AirPrint is a great feature that lets the iPhone or iPad print to any compatible printer right over Wi-Fi, no awkward cables or frustrating drivers required.

Foldify lets you craft folded paper art... right from your iPad

If you own a printer, Foldify will make it fun again. If you don't own a printer, Foldify will make you seriously consider rushing out to get one. The reason for that is Foldify's ability to project itself from the iPad, where the app runs, to the real world, where the app's results live.

The execution is even more remarkable, because the developers managed to keep the app as simple as the idea, and that's no easy feat.
