I have a small project, get Airprint working with an IPAD 2 and a wireless printer.

I believe that I have been told that the printer is on the list of approved airprint printers.

I thought that I had read somehwere where it will just print pictures and images, Not documents.

Before I proceed, any gotchas that anyone has run into?

You can find a list of supported printers on the KB article from Apple Support --> http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4356

As for printing just images and pictures, that is not true. You can print documents, emails, etc... from the iOS device so long as the app you are viewing the documents in supports printing.

Make sure the printer's firmware is up-to-date.

so the printer itself does not need to be wireless?  just on the same network (ip address scheme) as what the IOS device gets - correct?
