Houdah Software has announced the release of ACTPrinter for the iPhone and iPod touch. It’s available for $1.19 from the App Store.

ACTPrinter operates as “virtual paper” for the iPhone, giving you a place to store electronic tickets, boarding passes, bar codes and other data. You can take e-mails, Web pages, letters and more with you when you leave. The resolution is high enough that you can scan bar codes directly off your iPhone’s display, according to Houdah.

ACTPrinter lets you print from any Mac application to the iPhone or iPod touch, and integrates with Mac OS X PDF Services. The Mac and iPhone synchronise using Bonjour zero-configuration networking. It operates in both landscape and portrait viewing modes, and supports pinch zoom.

System requirements call for Mac OS X 10.4 or 10.5 and a Mac with an AirPort card. The Mac client software, ACTPrinter Mac, is available for free from the Houdah Software Web site.
