Canon Easy-PhotoPrint

Fancy printing while standing up? Sitting down? We're sure you could even print upside down with your iPhone or iPad using one of these apps.

If you've ever wanted to get some of your iPhoneography immortalised onto paper, here's the easiest way to do it. We've gathered together applications from printer manufacturers that interface directly with their particular models, though there are plenty of third-party apps that will do the job as well. All these apps are available through the Australian iTunes Store and are compatible with the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.

If you're a Canon, Lexmark, HP or Brother owner, and you have bought a new printer recently — happy days! Epson owners will have to sit tight for the time being, though you can use a third-party app which we've also listed here.

Cost: free

Compatible with: MP990 , MP640 and MP560.

What you can do: start the iPhone camera automatically from the application and print the photos that you took directly to paper in sizes up to Letter and A4.

Limitations: can only print photos, so web pages must be printed by taking a screenshot.
