    Just got the iPad.:DI'm very please with it and am using it more then I originally thought.:cool: Love the omnifocus app. Now if I could only print.:rolleyes:

    Is there a way to print on the HP 3030?:confused: I've owned this printer since 2004 and has never let me down. It's a true workhorse. It's connected to an Airport extreme base station.

    I wish apple made printing just as easy as on my laptop.:mad: It seems as though I need a paid app? Kinda sucks if I do.

    Cheers!

    Can't you use AirPrint activator? The downside is that you need to have a computer running at all times.

    After I install AirPrint activator, how do I print in safari on the iPad? There is no print icon in safari on the iPad.

    It's a rectangle with an arrow flying outside of it. A drop down menu with print should appear.

    Okay.:cool: Got it working. I would like to see more apps with a printer icon or similar option icon that reveals print like in th email or safari app.

    By the way. Thanks for referring AirPrint activator. That is really awsume in the sence that AirPrint works will all older printers.
