Printing and sharing photos from your smartphone is easier than ever with LifePrint. Just open the LifePrint app, select any photo from your camera roll, and hit print. The photo will wirelessly print in about 60 seconds over your data network or Wi-Fi connection. Users can also receive and print photos from friends who have the app, making it more than just a printer.

Robert Macauley, creator and Vice President of LifePrint, said: “Let’s face it; life’s just too awesome to be confined to digital screens. With LifePrint, you can recapture that wonderful feeling of holding life’s moments in your hands, and then share that feeling with friends and family in a way that’s much more special than just clicking “like” on a screen.”
