Do you want to print from your BlackBerry?
Isn’t it great that work colleagues and business associates can send you documents straight to your Blackberry smartphone? You can even view your airline boarding pass on your smartphone, but what if you could print up a copy as well while you were on your way to the airport?
Now you can with Cortado Workplace, a new free BlackBerry (and iPhone) app from ThinPrint AG.
The app lets users store e-mail, e-mail attachments, computer files and photos of documents in the company’s cloud server, and then print them from their smartphone to a printer that is on a local wireless network.
- 1 GB free online storage space.
- Web Explorer for managing files from a PC or notebook
- Puts documents and files at your fingertips anytime and anywhere.
- Print directly from your BlackBerry smartphone.
- Workplace file manager for your BlackBerry smartphone
Pictures of documents taken with your smartphone can also be turned into PDF files for storage, e-mailing or printing. The company offers 1 gigabyte of free storage, and each file can be a maximum of 3 megabytes. Later in the year (2010), the company intends to offer a fee-based upgrade without the file size limits and with much larger cloud storage.
It could be useful, for instance, to print a document sent by a colleague at a hotel’s networked printer, or your running late for drinks with friends because you are waiting for that important document. Now there is no need to wait because once you have received it you can use any wireless networked printer to print it. Or you can print a file received on your Blackberry without having to boot up your home computer. And procrastinators can rejoice: you can even print up that business presentation in your client’s lobby just seconds before you’re ready to start the meeting.
