Lake Success, NY—Canon USA released the Canon Direct Print and Scan for Mobile application for iPhone/iPad and a version for BlackBerry smartphones. For iOS devices, the app provides users with a mobile print and scan solution that integrates their iPad/iPhone with their Canon imageRunner and imageRunner Advance multifunction (MFP) products.

The iOS app provides communication between Canon MFPs and an iPhone and iPad so users can perform print and scan functions between the devices, such as scanning from the MFP to an iOS device or printing from them to an MFP.

“The Canon Direct Print and Scan for Mobile application allows our customers to manage their printing needs on the go,” said Sam Yoshida, vice president and general manager, Marketing, Business Imaging Solutions, Canon USA. “The user’s workflow process is streamlined through instant access to important documents along with the ability to utilize Canon’s renowned printing technology for high-quality results.”

The Canon Direct Print and Scan for Mobile application for iOS devices is available for free from the App Store on iPhone and iPad or at itunes.com/appstore.

For BlackBerry smartphones, the Canon Direct Print and Scan for Mobile application is a combination of two separate applications: a multifunctional embedded application platform (MEAP) app that runs on Canon’s imageRunner MFPs; and a mobile client app that resides on BlackBerry smartphones. Together they provide communication between Canon MFPs and BlackBerry smartphones, enabling users to perform print and scan functions between the two devices. This server-less, driver-less solution provides flexibility for on-the-go mobile users regarding their print and scan needs.

The mobile client app is available as a free download from BlackBerry App World; the MEAP app is available for purchase from authorized Canon dealers.

With the new apps, Canon imageRunner Advance or imageRunner MFP customers will now be able to print emails, PDFs and photos from an iOS/BlackBerry device to a Canon MFP, scanning hard copy documents from a Canon MFP to an iOS/BlackBerry device, and remotely manage Canon MFPs, print finishing features and scan options from an iOS device (e.g., select paper size selection, select scan resolution, duplex printing, color vs. black and white, select number of prints, collate and more). usa.canon.com
