Default Printing from the Galaxy Note

Has anyone tried printing directly from the Galaxy Note to a Samsung WI-FI printer using the Samsung Mobile Print application for I need to print aircraft boarding passes and emails? If so, which Samsung model printer did you use?

Many Thanks

Thanks for your reply. But I thought you needed to have an Internet connection to use Printer Share. Can you print directly to the HP LaserJet 1200 printer from the Galaxy Note without involving networking?

No need for internet connection, works via wifi, with usb connected and shared on Windows 7 (computer and Note connected in the same router). Should work with all network shared printers.

Thanks for more information. However, I want to print directly from the Note to a printer with no other hardware involved. That is why I am looking at the Samsung solution, but I would like to hear from anyone who has managed it before I buy a Samsung wireless printer.

I have a Wifi printer: EPSON Stylus Office BX30FW.
This weekend a friend tested to print on it under ANDROID (It was not a Note) and It works!

There is a free app from EPSON . It works with Ios and Android. Sorry, I can't remember the name but you can browse it if interested.

Epson Brother and HP all have apps. Check to make sure your printer is supported. HP seems to do the most.

Thanks for that useful information. It is good to know that other printer manufacturers are supporting Android.

Thanks for your useful reply. I've checked the Android Market and there is an Epson Application which supports a wide range of Epson printers and gets good review scores.

There is an app for Samsung as well: https://market.android.com/details?i...xlcHJpbnQiXQ..

"Samsung MobilePrint is a free application which enables to print photos, documents and web pages directly from your smartphone and tablet. The application also enables scanning document to your mobile device directly."

It seems to support a lot of Samsung printers.
