Normally, when you print a receipt from a mobile device, you have to develop the printing application to meet the OS of the mobile device, and then install the printer driver for each device.
A web application on a mobile device using ePOS-Print API can print directly byXML data to TM-i, TM mobile printer or to TM printers through TM-i. This means that, using ePOS-Print API, you don't need to install a printer driver on each mobile device, and you can control the receipt printer simply and easily.
