Last month, Microsoft launched Office for iPad which attracted over 12 million downloads within the first week. The first update for the app was released yesterday and comes with new features. Microsoft wrote on its blog yesterday that "we're releasing the first update which includes printing (your number 1 request), SmartGuides in PowerPoint, and several other improvements." This is obviously a in response to users' popular demand.
This means iPad users can now send to printer right from their iPad. This is indeed a good development as users will now find it a bit more comfortable to work from their iPad with the mind that they could easily print their work.
