The PrinterOn app lets users print from their phone to business, home or public printers in the PrinterOn network. These printers are in hotels, airports, libraries, universities. Yet there are only six in Sydney and four in Brisbane, so the network could be larger. Users of PrinterOn can pay for their print jobs using an existing PayPal account, or by simply entering their credit card information during the printing process.
