    I've searched and searched and cannot find this. Is there a free App that allows you to print from in another App? So I'm browsing the web and want to print a page, or I'm in Notes and want a button added to the corner of the App that allows the option to send to printer? I don't have an AirPrint compatible printer, so I'm looking for something that work universally... I have an Epson workforce 610 that is wifi compatible on it's own. Thanks!!

    No. No app, unless you JB, can add a button to Safari or Notes in order to run its own printing service.

    Well, there are apps like ePrint which makes itself available for file sharing for certain files - so rather than 'Print', you choose 'Open With...', and ePrint will be there.

    Why not every app allows you to 'Open With...' its documents, I don't know. Why poxy 'AirPrint' isn't built-in app that works this way, so it could be replaced by other apps, eg a manufacturer's own app, thus allowing you to actually print wirelessly to a wireless printer as it was supposed to, I do not know.

    Perhaps I'm not understanding, but I can run my own printer off my iPhone and iPad without JB.

    In the middle of several books.
    I am able to print over wifi without having to use any third party app. Both my iPad and my iPhone see my printer natively. The printer I use from both products is a new Samsung lazer. The products can't see my HP deskjet without using the printer pro app.
