PlayBook OS 2.0 Print To Go Helps You Go Green by Eliminating Printouts

 Print to Go

One of the coolest new features in the BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 update is Print to Go. The new software allows you to print from any application on your PC directly to your PlayBook. That means instead of printing out that 40 page PowerPoint or Word document or even website you can now simply read it on your PlayBook by printing to it. The way it works is you install the Print to Go app on your computer as a printer and when you print you just select the Print to Go printer. It will then ask you for your BlackBerry ID and password to send the document to your PlayBook. Its that easy!

Check out Print to Go at or see a demo in Flash here. and here are a bunch of knowledge base articles on the subject:

I am loving what RIM has done with Print to Go. I am just hoping RIM also makes it bidirectional so you can print from your PlayBook to your PC’s printer. Ofutur even suggested that RIM allow you to print to a group so you can send the documents to a friends PlayBook.

  1. Print2Go does seem useful, but I wish they had also included a way to print from the Playbook.

  2. Definitely some use to it but I do think it overlaps some with the file sharing capability, if on the network just drag an drop. And as for accessing the Playbook, same thing, you can drag and drop to your harddrive, copy & paste, open, etc. I’m sure we’ll eventually see (BB10 devices) a Print2Go app for devices which will basically provide BB users with a personal cloud (since you are “printing” to your BlackBerry ID).

  3. This is RIM obsession with security again. I tried it and nice feature but as stated only useful if your company has made drag and drop difficult.
