seems stupid to make those good 'older' solutions STOP or BAR them from working to push pple to newer 'solutions' which often dont work
ie , if your net conenctions go down = you cannot PRINT !!!!

so so weird ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, that some crazy person decided to BAR / STOP users from using their HARDWARE

((( so anyone who has the Older version of iprint for HP ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,dont UPDATE IT ( dont install updates from gplay store - it will work as before)))


>> just thought to post this tip here >... sorry to be a bit off topic !!

Whoa, I feel like I just read a Telegram

I've printed and scanned using Epson iPrint with my Epson NX330 several times. Works very well.

No support for MS-office files
They send your file to their server (for conversion) and then back for printing.

Is there an app to print to PDF file?

Hey guys,
I've been a member here for a few years without posting but thought I would chime in on this one.
I have been using PrintHand (on my tf700) with no problems to print to a wifi epson workforce 60. Its not a free app but it prints pdf, web pages, ms office, photos, etc. And it has a plethora of drivers for all the major brands.

can't post the link as a newb but its easy to find on the market

I would just like to say that PrintHand is 1/3 the price ($4.95 vs $12.95) of PrinterShare, does everything PrinterShare can do (wifi, bt, cloud) AND offers the option to connect to printers via USB for those that do not have a wireless or LAN printer available.

BTW, I am not affiliated with PrintHand in any way, I just researched/tried several printing options and while PrinterShare is totally functional it is overpriced.

If there are reasons to avoid PrintHand (i.e. privacy issues) please say so as this is a deal breaker for me.

Are you trying to provoke me? I'm not sure I understand the purpose of your post other than increasing your post count.

From what I've read of your posts, you offer little more than wild speculation and random banter. Not all of us find it necessary to run our mouths inexplicably. Like most other people on this forum, I'll contribute when I actually have something to say.

If you are looking for a free solution, I have been using "Let's Print Droid" to print to my CUPS based linux print server and it works great for me. I still need to work up a filter on the CUPS side for office documents, but everything else I have wanted to print worked well. This solution relies on the server side to do the format conversion which makes sense to me but wouldn't work if you want to print directly to a wireless printer.
