Luxembourg – Houdah Software today is proud to announce the immediate availability of ACTPrinter 4.4 for iPhone and iPad. This update to the popular virtual printer adds the ability to create PDF from web pages, documents and the clipboard – right on iPhone or iPad. ACTPrinter also includes a document scanner feature to be unlocked by an in-app purchase.

When we released ACTPrinter back in 2009 we thought of it as a paperless repository for travel documents, reservation confirmations, electronic tickets and boarding passes. Soon our customers found it many more uses. They were printing all sorts of documents from their Mac to their iPhone. Many even printed whole books.

ACTPrinter has since seen many revisions. These brought support for iPad, sections for organizing printouts, and more. A big step forward was the addition of a Windows printer driver. Not so long ago ACTPrinter 4.0 brought a fresh design to allow more rapid access to existing feature. More importantly though it created room for new features.

At its core, ACTPrinter remains a virtual printer: Save paper. Print documents, electronic tickets, travel plans, web pages, … to your iPhone or iPad. Read on the go. Be prepared and have your documents always with you.

ACTPrinter 4.4 gives users even more option helping them to save paper:
* Web printer: save web pages as PDF printouts
* Clipboard printer: copy text or images in any iOS application. Save the selection to PDF in ACTPrinter
* Document printer: convert many popular file formats to PDF printouts
* Transfer documents between instances of ACTPrinter on iPhone, iPad, Mac or Windows PC

* Print to printers attached to a Mac or Windows PC
* Print to Apple AirPrint enabled printers
