Acting as a printer driver for Android, PrintConnect makes it simple for developers to add label and receipt printing to their Android solutions.
PrintConnect handles the discovery and pairing process with Zebra’s Link-OS printers via Bluetooth or WLAN connexions therefore reducing the amount code required in your app. PrintConnect supports our Print Touch feature making the pairing process even easier!
Just pass the variable data for your label or receipt to PrintConnect using the Android Intents system and PrintConnect will merge the data with your template and send it on to the printer. PrintConnect supports Cloud storage services so you can centrally manage all your templates. Our free Windows-based, WYSIWYG ZebraDesigner software allows you to design templates for any application.
Developers that prefer to include the discovery, pairing and printing processes in their own apps can do so using our Link-OS SDK.
