How to Send a Fax from the iPad 2

Fax Print and Share Pro allows you to fax documents anywhere in the world straight from your iPad. Here’s how:

  • Download Fax Print & Share Pro from the iTunes App Store.
  • Open the document you’d like to fax. For example, if you received a PD F via e-mail that needs to be faxed, press and hold the attachment icon at the bottom of the message and then tap Open In… Then select Fax Print & Share Pro.
  • Tap Fax in the top bar. Then select a cover sheet option: No Cover, Official, or Simple. We chose Simple.
  • Fill in the fax number, recipient, subject, and note fields.
  • Tap Send. On our test, a faxed PDF was received within five minutes.

Bonus Tip: Fax Print & Share Pro can pull in documents from Apple’s MobileMe iDisk and Set up these options under the Remote Servers tab within the app.

    How does the iPad connect to an analog line? How does it dial out? I don’t get it?

    So much space used not saying anything. How about starting with what you must have to make the system work. What if I don’t want to use pdf format? How about being able to type a note and fax that in the same app.
