This tutorial covers two topics at the same time. First; Google’s Cloud Printing Service, Second, how on earth can we print from an Android Tablet. Quite long post, but you can read only the parts you need as the article was written in such a way that you can skip certain parts or read only those you like. Enjoy – iRshaad 🙂
Having a tablet is really cool; you can play Angry Birds, watch videos on Youtube, browse the WWW and lots more. But for the office guy out there, creating/editing/viewing documents on a tablet is simply awesome. No need to switch on the PC to read a document unless you already own a smartphone with an office suite. But lets not compare the smartphone and the tablet for document viewing as the tablet will take it all with its larger screen providing much better reading ease. But now, there’s another problem, what if that document needs to be printed and you are not on your PC that has a printer hooked to it? :S Well, worry not, today with the advent of cloud computing, printing through the clouds too is possible. Here’s how to do it 🙂
Recently I had to transfer files from my Android Tablet to my PC for the purpose of an article. The simplest way was to use a thumbdrive as the tablet has a USB host feature, but to each time look for a thumbdrive, copy, disconnect, reconnect, browse … as lazy as I am, I had to find another solution which took lesser time and lesser moves. I could use Skydrive discussed in another article on my blog but I wanted a simpler method, that of a folder on my PC that pulls contents for a cloud location and that very same folder can be edited too from the tablet. I heard of Dropbox and upon reading its features, I was without any doubt that Dropbox was the solution I needed. So I decided to gave it a try and to write an article about it too.
Youppi!! I got my android tablet after waiting for almost three months. Its a Penta Internet Tablet IC103C running Android 4.01. The first I installed was Avast Mobile Security from Play Store. Then I browsed the store for other applications and found loads of very interesting apps but also an amazing number of applications that I call Fake Apps or Fooling Apps.
