Print to iPad with ClickBook for Windows (But I have a Mac)|
Don't look stupid carrying sheafs of paper - print to your iPad like a piece of paper.
Anything you can print, you can take with you on your iPad, iPhone, or Kindle.
Use it for maps, directions, statements, books, articles, coupons, news, etc.
Have it with you, even when you don't have an Internet connection.
How it works: You print to 'iPad' from any Windows application. An e-mail shows up on your iPad with the pages attached. You can read them from there, but if you want the pages available when you have no Internet connection, just tap on the pages and choose 'Open in iBooks' and they'll be stored in iBooks and available when you need them.
Take a minute and set it up one time.
