On June 21, 2011 Epson released Version 2.0 of their iPrint. Though I’d not say this is actually an implementation of AirPlay, it does appear to let you print from your from your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch. Overall this App has a great rating so I’m guessing it works. This app is really using WiFi so AirPlay or not, it should work well.
These new quasi AirPlay compatible printers from Epson will let you print
- Operate Scanner of applicable Printer/Scanners
- Print documents
- Google Docs
These extra printing capabilities go well beyond AirPlay and really make this app work.

Epson has still to announce an AirPlay compatible printer. They did release an App back in December that allowed users of iPad’s and iPhones to print photos but not documents. Given the growing demand to print from your iPad or iPhone you’d think this large printer company would have something available by now.

So Apple has anointed 10 printers, all HP, to be the first to get Apple AirPrint. Imagine my disappointment to find out that the 7 month old HP all-in-one I have won’t work with AirPrint! Here is the list of AirPlay AirPrint compatible printers.
