    Hello,

    I have iPhone 3GS with IOS 4.2.1. I have also a printer HP Photosmart C4680 which is wireless via Airport Express. I have no problem printing wirelessly from my MacBook Pro. I was very dissapointed when I found out that I can not print wirelessly from my iPhone to my wireless printer. I tried Printopia sw and it works but my MBP had to be on in order to get a print out from my iPhone. It is not convenient. I want to print wirelessly from my iPhone directly to my printer. I know it is not possible right now. Do you think that Apple will find a solution to this problem ? I just bought my printer few months ago. And I don't want to buy an AirPrint enabled printer again.

    Thanks,
    Tolga

    I've been using an app called e-print for more than 6 months and it works quite well. It found wireless printers as well as printers connected directly to my home network.
    Reviews in the App store are not very good but i think most of them had unrealistic expectations. It is $2.99 and there is lite version for free.
