Already reduced once from $9.99 to $6.99Epson and Thinxstream have decided to drop the fee all the way for their joint PrintJinni app for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

Compatible with iOS 3 and higher, the PrintJinni for Epson app allows users of these iOS devices to print attachments (i.e. PDFs and JPEGs) to Epson printers wirelessly.

This app is still priced at $6.99 in the iTunes App Store, but it will be free in the United States and Canada by the end of the month.
