    Oh, that's great stuff, it actually prints into the air ;)

    Ok, seriously, an airprinter prints over the air, it especially enables you to print right from your iDevice without first sending it to yourself by email or so. Also you do not need to have a computer connected, as the printer gets the printjob directly from the iDevice wirelessly (therefore over the air - airprinter).

    Do you need an app, and I am assuming you need a wireless printer

    I don't mean to jump in, but on this topic, are there any more trusted apps vs. others for the new iPad?

    You just need an airprinter - most apps you can print on airprinters directly.

    I have the HP Photosmart 5514 printer and print from all my iDevices with no issues and no app required. I use Atomic web browser, added "print" to my action menu option and can print from any room in my house.:) Easy Peasy.
