HP All-in-One Printer Remote

 

Recently I was talking with someone from the HP printer group about some of the Android applications HP has written to support printing. He showed me one that actually has a number of uses called: HP All-in-One Printer Remote. It incorporates some very useful technology:

It does the things you would expect a printer tool to do like check status of your HP Printers and All-in-One devices that are attached to your Wi-Fi network. It supports HP printer with “ePrint” on it.

Status like:

  • Is it out of paper? Is the device busy?
  • How much ink and toner are left.
  • The name and number of ink cartridges and toners my printer uses?
  • Scan from your scanner, from glass or document feeder.

It also lets you do some interesting things with the camera on your phone:

  • Scan document using the camera on the phone, and enhance it with HP’s mobile scanning technology.
  • Save and Share scanned and camera captured document to cloud and email.
  • Create multi-page .pdf file from scanned images and camera captured images

Have you ever had to take a quick snapshot of a business card and it comes out looking more like a trapizoid than a rectangle. This little app can fix that and make the business card look quite nice, finding the corners, squaring up the letters and equalizing the color background… It even removed some stains from the card I tried it on. Sorry I had to blur out some of the details, since we can't be too careful now a days.

The original version was at an angle with the top 20% smaller than the bottom. An interesting tool to have around.
