Epson and Thinxtream's collaborative PrintJinni mobile printing app is catching on with the current hot trend of the moment: cloud computing.

The latest upgrade to the PrintJinni app comes with support for mobile printing from the cloud - not just information stored directly on iOS devices anymore. Thus, users can retrieve and print files from Apple iDisk, Box.net and Dropbox.

Supported file types for printing include PDF and Microsoft Office documents (Word, Excel and PowerPoint) as well as Apple Mail messages and browser web pages. Users just need to connect an enabled Epson printer to the same network as the iOS device.

Other updated features include a grayscale printing option, the ability to select five favorite printers and the usual improvements to the user interface and navigation .

The PrintJinni app, which became free late last year after the $6.99 price tag was dropped, is available to download from the iTunes App Store.
