Is Air Sharing HD the best printing app?

    I heard that Air Sharing HD is the only app that supports true print to a wireless printer. Is that true? Also I heard it has to be a Mac shared printer. What does that mean? I have an HP wireless printer that I can print from my Dell laptop and Macbook Pro, does that mean its Mac shared? The main thing I want to print is Pages/Numbers docs, emails and Webpages.

    I just tried printing a PDF file from air sharing. It did not see any of my 4 network printers. Three are brother and one is hp. Goodreader sees all 3 using bonjour, but it thinks they are file servers.

    that sucks, I heard it was the easiest printing app. I'm debating whether to buy it now.

    Goodreader sees everything bonjour sees and it tries to treat everything as if it was either WebDAV or FTP. It does NOT claim to print. Sorry I didn't make that more clear.
