greencloud printer alternative and competitor

Post by Fabrice »

it's an internal post to list all the products "in the market" and in the scope of GreenCloud printer.

http://www.preton.com - ink saving background program only, I never see an effect about it , and doesn't have any user interface when you print.

http://www.ecoprintsaver.com/ - n-up page, ink optimisation

http://fineprint.com/fp/ - the most well know, but I found the interface very old fashion and it is very expensive and limited for the preview part.

http://www.inksaver.com/ I didn't try it yet.

http://www.priprinter.com/ Tried long time ago , look like an office apps, very powerful, but it looks like you exit from office and coming back to Office again.


http://www.printgreener.com/1/ this one seems quite good, with home version and pro version, very american market oriented, no localized version, and no cloud connection to share your doc

http://www.clicktoconvert.com/iprint/ I loved this one, but the company sounds dead, no update, no replies about any kind of partner enquiries, and no bug fix. Also, as other printing program, it doesn't allow you to smartly share your newly created pdf to the cloud storage account.

http://www.ecofont.com , isn't directly a printer software or addon, it's a special font to use in your document. the idea is wonderful, it's easy to setup , but you need to like this font. it used to be free, but not free anymore now. and comes with some tools to make even easier to replace your doc with this one.

I found this new competitor ( not tried yet ) http://www.inkgard.com/ , which seems to be a preton alternative and work to reduce ink cost only ( this feature is supported for free in GreenCloud printer )
