New Upgrade to NETGEAR Genie App enables iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch Users to Print to Any Printer

SAN JOSE, Calif. - NETGEAR®, Inc. (NASDAQGM: NTGR), a global networking company that delivers innovative products to consumers, businesses and service providers, today announced the release of a new NETGEAR Genie® App upgrade that enables printing from an Apple® iPhone®, iPad® and iPod touch® to any networked or USB printer. With the NETGEAR Genie App upgrade, iOS device users are no longer restricted to a narrow range of AirPrint-compatible printers. The NETGEAR Genie App upgrade dramatically overcomes previous AirPrint compatibility limitations to give users the freedom to print to any USB or networked printer.

The NETGEAR Genie, available for PCs and MACs, provides a home network dashboard that enables consumers to monitor, connect, and control their home networks and also diagnose and automatically fix network connectivity issues. Now, with this upgrade, the NETGEAR Genie App also renders any printer AirPrint-compatible, whether connected wirelessly to the home network, USB-connected to a PC, or connected through a USB port to a NETGEAR ReadySHARE® print-capable router. While a PC or a Mac is on, the NETGEAR Genie App enables printing from iPad, iPhone and iPod touch devices on the same network.

"Before today to print from an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch the user needs to buy a new AirPrint-compatible printer," said Sandeep Harpalani, senior product line manager at NETGEAR. "Now, with the NETGEAR Genie App upgrade, you can simply print to your current printer at home from your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch as you do from your PC and MAC."

Pricing and Availability
