Why Add Print To Your App?

Adding print to your app increases engagement and makes users more likely to use your app again and for longer periods of time. In fact, many users of top apps want to print, but can't, for example:

  • • Homework
  • • Medical Records
  • • Email
  • • Boarding Passes
  • • Coupons
  • • Event tickets
  • • Reservations
  • • Recipes

Questions about the Mopria Print Service?

"For printing, as with any feature, what is important is defining what is the value I am getting from adding this feature and what is the price I need to pay to developer it. So we have tried really hard to make the entry point easier…. I think printing will get more and more used in the future."
