iPad for Dad #13, Keyboard Update – Next Step Printing
My Dad now uses his iPad keyboard to write on the yellow note pad multiple times each day. Sometimes he just writes, but at other times he taps the letter icon and send his writing off, via e-mail, to a family member or friend. I have received a number of these compositions and get a thrill out of reading each one that arrives.
Now Dad wants to print from his iPad. While I’ve learned to write a lot and print a little, printing is important to my father.
To learn a bit more I downloaded the Print Central app to my iPhone. I checked out a number of printing applications on the iPhone, and this looked most interesting, though it is also one of the most expensive applications that I have purchased. It prints e-mail, pictures, and documents easily, sending the files to my wireless HP printer.
However, as far as I can see, it cannot print from the yellow legal pad, the app that dad us using to write. Instead I’ll need to teach dad to cut and paste. These printing apps can print from the clipboard. I supposed I could also download the Pages word processor and teach him to use it.
I’ll need to do some more looking. Does anyone know anything more about printing from the yellow pad?
