Xerox PrintBack

Xerox PrintBack


Xerox PrintBack enables printing Microsoft Office documents, PDFs, photos and more from your Android-based tablet or smartphone to the default printer on your computer. PrintBack extends the printing capabilities of your Mac or Windows PC. PrintBack uses an online service (Dropbox, for example) to transmit the print job from your device to your computer, where it is printed to the default printer.

By using your computer, PrintBack delivers prints with uncompromised color and output quality – you will see no difference between prints from your computer and from your mobile device. PrintBack supports the types of office documents you most often print from your computer – PDFs, Microsoft Office files, photos and more, and it supports printing email and web content using cut and paste to the clipboard. And, any default printer is supported – regardless of manufacturer, technology, or connection type.

HOW TO SETUP PRINTBACK
1) Download the Xerox PrintBack agent from Xerox.com and install it on your Mac or Windows PC

Jurassic setup What the hell is wrong with you people at Xerox? Any other manufacturer creates an app where the app itself manages the printing and the customer selects any printer available after the app scans it. Why would I want to download an app for if I still have to use a pc with more crapware from xerox? Get real people and get some real devs come up with a functional app.

You have to use Drop Box? What kind of app is this? why can't you just print to the printer, And then you have to set up a print server on a PC? Hogwash.. Brother Printers doesn't require any of this Nonsense...
