Today HP announced an iPhone ePrint Service application that supports the company's effort to send jobs wirelessly to the latest HP networked printers using Apple iOS 4.2-supported devices and HP ePrint Enterprise server software.

Drivers are traditionally a printer's worst enemy, so HP hopes that ePrint and the accompanying iPhone app will encourage users to materialize their presentations, e-mails, appointments, notes, and more from their mobile devices using ePrint. As with the online version of HP's ePrintCenter, all documents sent from the iPhone will go through an initial screening process by HP ePrint Enterprise Administrative Server software to keep data safely stored within the Internet network.

Additionally, if you download the HP ePrint Service app, you'll gain access to a directory of publicly available print locations including FedEx Offices, retail stores, hotels, and airport lounges. You can use the iPhone's GPS to source these printing locations and make rush printing more convenient.

The HP ePrint Service App for iPhone is available now as a free download in iTunes.
