Canon Mobile Printing App provides ease of use and places traditional print
functionality at the fingertips of today’s mobile worker.”

The Canon Mobile Printing App features the following innovative tools:

OpenIn Compatibility Improves Efficiency

The Canon Mobile Printing user experience becomes seamless with the
integration of OpenIn, a feature that allows users to capitalize on the
functionality of the mobile app while navigating through files located
elsewhere. The OpenIn feature allows users to easily navigate to Canon Mobile
Printing directly from the application they are in, giving the customer more
ways to access printing.

Variety of Supported Document Types Enhances Usability

Designed with the end-user in mind, the app supports a variety of file
formats. Users can print Microsoft Office files (doc, docx, xls, xlsx, ppt,
pptx), iWork files, PDF, JPEG, GIF, BMP, PNG, TIFF files, photographs, and web
pages can be printed directly through the app.

Wide Range of Compatibility Provides a Satisfying End-User Experience

also supports most imageRUNNER and imageRUNNER ADVANCE enterprise
multifunction office systems and includes support for the next generation
imageRUNNER ADVANCE multifunction devices. In addition, the app supports
compatible imageCLASS printers and imageRUNNER LBP printers.

Intuitive Printer Communication

The app can search for and identify Canon printers within a wireless (Wi-Fi)
broadcast range – and automatically save these devices for future use. If the
Canon printer cannot be found within a wireless broadcast range, users can
manually enter the IP address of the Canon device to list it as one of their
available print devices.

Opportunity to Choose Print Settings Optimizes Workflow

The app offers a variety of built-in printing options to enhance control and
performance. Users can tailor print range, paper size, color output, and
number of copies directly from the app. Depending on the finishing features on
the printer, documents can also be stapled directly from the menu.
Additionally, users can instruct the app to feed paper automatically or via
the device manual bypass.

Preview Modes Support Enhances Ease of Use

printing to determine the ideal settings for a specific print job. Items with
