As per the app title suggests, PrintJinni is a printer-wizard app to aid in printing jobs directly from your iOS device. PrintJinni is smart enough to automatically detect all printers associated with your connected network.
With my iPhone plugged into my home WiFi connection, the app was able to recognize the two machines connected to my home network automatically without any prompts needed at all. Printing documents was also a breeze with the extremely easy to use user interface.
What I like about PrintJinni would be the ability to print directly through different sources ranging from social networks to cloud storage systems like Dropbox. Users can also print webpages out directly from the app. This saves users from the hassle of having to screenshot their images before manually printing them out, offering plenty of convenience indeed.
PrintJinni requires an account to set up with a free trial of 30 days being given at the start. After which, users have to pay a nominal subscription fee of $0.99 for 50 days or $3.99 a year to continue with the usage of this app. Users can also opt to use the completely free but restricted version, which only allows for the printing of JPEG images.
Hence, PrintJinni is extremely handy for users to frequently print items and do not want the hassle of having to manually hook up with their printers.
Would I Buy Again:Yes.
Who Is It For:Users who handle paperwork frequently.
What I Like:The ease and convenience of use.
What I Don't Like:Annual subscription fees rather than one off payment.
Final Statement:Convenience but at a price.
