    Yo yo,

    Looking for an app that allows me to print from my iPad, would mostly be printing documents created in pages. Preferably would not require any software on my laptop as my printer is wifi capable. I tried the official Epson app, but it is hot garbage.


    Thanks in advance y'all

    If you have the printer attached to a Mac or PC, you should try Fingerprint. Works super with my Samsung ML-2525W

    I tried it and it is very bad. Not good to print documents on, which is what I'm mainly trying to do.

    I have a wifi Epson printer and I've had good luck with printjinni.

    That's OK. If you have a PC or Mac on the same network that can print to the Epson it's worth giving Fingerprint a try. There is a free trial period. My Samsung ML-2525W is networked and not connected by USB and Fingerprint works great.

    do you use Dropbox? if so you can set up an Automator folder action to automatically print files received in dropbox on your Mac to connected printer. see this article

    don't know if it will work with Pages documents, but it does work for things like PDFs and images. Not exactly what you're looking for, and I don't use Pages so don't know if there's an easy path on the iPad from Pages to Dropbox, but it might do the job for you?

    The app to bridge Pages, Numbers, and Keynote to Dropbox is iSMEStorage. It's a one time App fee of $5 and well worth it.

    Fingerprint also provides a virtual printer that dumps the document straight in to a Dropbox account. Pretty cool if you ask me.
