Mobile PDF printing is possible with native Android and iPhone (iOS) functions without the need to install any applications. However, the printer must be compatible with Google Cloud Print or AirPrint technology. Also, in the case of an Apple phone, the device must be Wi-Fi and be connected to the same network as the smartphone. Printer sharing settings must also allow other devices to print.
