Re: Print to go for Mac book pro

Hello fgarciag and welcome to the BlackBerry® Support Community Forums.

 

Currently the Print To Go® application is available for Windows® based operating systems and is not currently available for Mac® operating systems.

Re: Print to go for Mac book pro

This is ridiculous, why don't you just recompile it for MacOSX + a few changes, it is not very difficult

Mac will not bite you ;-)

We sensible Mac users just produce the documents including pdfs and move thru wifi connection to playbook. What point is there in moving via the web. Thats all this wonder app does. Moves to web then back to the PB next to you on the desk.  The word "print" is misleading. You are missing nothing.

I agree with you TroyTempest, I have been doing that all along since I bought my Playbook on the release day, and except for the fact that some of those PDF file created with PrintToGo are much bigger than those that I create from within Word or Excel, there is no diffrence

Re: Print to go for Mac book pro

and if you are in a McD or somewhere where wifi sharing is not available, email it to yourself.

Re: Print to go for Mac book pro

Hi guys, 

Thanks for the reply. 

 

You're absolutely right, Pdfs are fine. I did not realise the 'print to go' make sense on a PC, where pdf support can hardly be found. 

 

Thank you.

Re: Print to go for Mac book pro

I don't agree. Specially with the Z10/Q10 it would make perfectly sense to be able to send documents to the device without requiring WIFI connection.

 

It's a shame BlackBerry still did not launch print-to-go for the mac ...

Re: Print to go for Mac book pro

I have to agree. It would be a useful feature to have and I would have thought by now they should have developed a download for Macs

Re: Print to go for Mac book pro

I don't understand why they didn't address this yet. After all they did notice mac osx is relevant and have developped BlackBerry Link for BlackBerry 10. Nevertheless there is still no app...
