    Allows you to print photos to your wireless HP Printer from your iPhone. Now they need to come out with one to allow you to print pdf files and other documents from your iPhone.

    Thats a pretty nice App. If I had an HP printer I'd defiantly have it.

    I have a Canon printer with WiFi. I'm hoping someone releases this to work with those printers. I HATE HP, but all of a sudden, I'm a little bit jealous. :eek:

    Print in the app store just came out tonight. I always thought that it was odd that there were no apps like this in the store, but perhaps this is an actual good side effect of Apple loosening up on which apps are accepted. I'm getting tired of new farting apps. These are actually useful.

    I haven't tried it yet. Waiting for a few more reviews. Seems restricted and requires software that must first be installed on the computer.

    Being able to print word documents would be great. It would be nice to be able to print to whatever printer was closest to me while on my university's campus. Many times I will email myself documents and print them off at school. This would save a little time and be just plain cool. Apple needs to add this to the email and safari apps with some sort of universal driver. Also, a common file repository would be great.

    I also have a Canon printer...and Canon everything else. When reading about this, I kept trying to think of someone I know who has an HP, and all I could come up with was Canon, Lexmark, Kodak, and Epson. I had HP back in the day, but they were crap. Ink heads were always getting clogged and the ink was too pricey.

    I've just got this haven't had a chance to test it yet cos i cannot connect to my work machine from cell network and I can't get on the work wireless from my phone.

    it requires a windows or mac to act as a print server and have the software running on it.

    I will have a play at home tonight and if it's any good get my other half to open up the home network a little to let me print from anywhere.

    Within the first minute of installing both apps, this works for me. I have a Canon MP620 printer, set up on my wifi network. I have the print server software running on a mac mini, printing contacts, photos... It all works, and works well.

    My only complaint, is there's no option to print email, and seeing as the SDK doesn't allow apps to access that, I doubt we'll see that addition, unless the developer figures out some way to forward the email to the print server.

    All in all, worth the $1.99 for sure!
