Hello,
I don't find how to print directly a mail (simply via wifi, not via printing a pdf of the mail and print the pdf, for example) via gmail app or the classic email app.
I've installed the Epson iPrint version 2 for android (I've got an Epson PX730FW) but It's not a solution...
Tks for your help.

You can download cloud print from the Google play store and use that to print from anywhere... only catch is that you have to have chrome on the computer you will be using to print to and the computer and printer must both be on...

Other than that, works great!

In Maine Terms....you can't get there from here....but it can be done.

Try out an app called PrinterShare from the Market. I believe it includes the necessary drivers for your printer. Once you have that installed on your tablet, open it and connect directly to the printer via WiFi.

After that is done, you send things you want to print to the printer via the Share function, it shows up as an option called PrinterShare. You should be able to try it out first before you buy the key, if it works for you.

The Google Cloud print option also works, but requires a PC connected to the Printer on the network, and the PC needs to be on. PrinterShare should let you go direct, and also supports printing from web browser or any other app that you can share from.

Hope this helps.

You can accomplish this with a printer that support CloudPrint. The device is registered with your Google ID and the cloud print app will allow you to print to that printer without needing Chrome on your PC.

I have a Kodak Hero 9.1 that does this flawlessly.

I use Let's Print Droid (free from Play Store) for CUPS-connected printers at work and PrinterShare ($) for my home wifi printer. Let's Play Droid also has options for LPR, Google Cloud Printing, SMB, and FTP but I haven't tried these modes.

Question I bought PrinterShare.....
I bought PrinterShare, and it prints fine to my HP printer, however, it will not print to my Dell Laserjet. It seems that it has something to do with dell and releasing drivers or something like that. So, do you guys think google clould print would work for me?

Am I missing something...the original post asked about printing from the gmail app. There is no share button in the gmail app unless I'm missing it, so I don't think it can be done from the app.
