Print n Share is one of the most versatile and popular printing apps on the App Store and has long had direct integration with Microsoft’s OneDrive (formally SkyDrive). It is because of this tight integration, customers can now quickly and easily print any document or file they make in the Microsoft office apps in just two taps. There is not even the need to download the document or file first – it can be printed directly from within OneDrive on the fly.
All of Microsoft’s iPad based Office apps have a feature that enables customers to auto-save documents, spreadsheets
or presentations they create to OneDrive. Once finished editing, all the customer simply needs to do is open Print n Share, tap on OneDrive (SkyDrive), choose their file and tap print!
Print n Share supports printing to all printers, not just AirPrint printers. This means that even if a customer has older model printer, they can still take advantage of being able to print from any of the Microsoft Office apps on the iPad.
Ian Schenkel, CEO of EuroSmartz comments: “Print n Share is one of the top selling printing apps globally and was the original “over the air” document transfer, viewing & management apps. Now with the release of the new Microsoft Office apps for iPad, Print n Share again comes into its own by providing a quick and easy way to print documents & files to any printer. This more than ever means customers can fully utilize the mobility of an iPad and print while on the move.”
Print n Share is a universal app for iPhone and iPad and is $7.99 in the App Store. It requires your devices be running iOS 5.0 or later.

If you are an Evernote fan and a Mac user, be sure to check out the latest update for Evernote for Mac. The update, which is available now in the Mac App Store, brings a new natural language search engine aimed at making it easier to find notes or specific content of your notes.
The updated search in Evernote for Mac gives you three new ways to get more refined searches done in the app. The first is searching by location. Evernote for Mac, iOS and Android stores your location information with the note itself. Now I can search by those locations. For example, yesterday I was in Madrid, Spain. I can simply search for “Madrid” and find all of the notes that I took while I was in Madrid yesterday as well as previous note made in that city.
The popular Evernote note taking app and service has been updated for iOS. The new Evernote for iOS app sports a host of changing, most notably a completely customisable Home screen and new light and dark display themes. The update comes on the heels of some background updates the company made to their servers which brought up to four times faster synchronisation.
The new Evernote for iOS Home screen does not have a substantially different look than it did before but now you can customise the layout of that screen to better suit your personal usage of the app. By tapping the settings (gear icon next to your name) and selecting “Customize Home Screen”, you can arrange or hide elements that are on your home screen. For example, you may want your notebooks ahead of your notes in the order on your Home screen or you may want to hide the Tags section. It is a far greater level of customisation that Evernote has ever had in their iOS app.
