Wireless printing app
« on: October 10, 2012, 05:17:28 PM »
I just bought an HP wireless printer and would love to print from my tablet problem is I need an app for it.

The HP app I feel needs to much information from the user and I do not wish to give any information to HP are the their any other apps you guys are using to print to a wireless printer?

PrinterShare at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.dynamixsoftware.printershare.premium is excellent, but the price tag is not that easy to accept. I got it as the free app of the day on Amazon last year.

Set it up as a cloud printer, and use Easyprint on your N7.

It sounds like what I'm looking for but that app needs a lot of permissions too. I wish their was an app that would just print document files and PDFs. I don't need my SMS messages printed.

Now on easy print it sounds like its actually printing sending the document to my computer then my printer, so does that mean I would have to leave my laptop on all the time? Cause that wouldn't work either.

Yes, your host computer has to be running for cloud printing to a classic printer (if your HP isn't a cloud capable printer), but you can let it sleep and waken it remotely with your tablet running Unified Remote, or something similar.

Try CHROME cloud printing on PC, with the CLOUD PRINT application from Google Play.

That's how I do it.

This reply won't help the original poster ( sorry  :(  ) but im hoping it may help someone in this situation with a brother printer.  If this applies to you then you might want to check out their web site as they offer a free app.  it has been working well so far.

I also use Printer Share to mprint form my phone and tablets.  Although it does require a significant amount of permissions, it has performed for me flawlessly since I got the free download from Amazon, last year.  Another app that I have heard good things about is Cloud Print (sorry for not attaching it to the word, the computer I am on doesn't allow it)
