    Hello: I bought a Brother printer that does not support Airprint. Is there a third-party app that would allow my Air to print wirelessly that printer? I've found some for iPads and iPhones but not for Air. Thanks.

    I use an app called HandyPrint or at least it used to be called that. It's free with an encouraged donation and has worked flawlessly with my Epson Artisan 810.

    I have used Printopia and it worked well for me.

    I've used HandyPrint (formerly AirPrint Activator), but I don't know if it has been updated to be compatible with Mavericks or iOS 7. Even if it hasn't been updated, it still may work.

    Thanks

    Thanks all. I didn't expect so many options. I'm going to try the AirPort option, since I have a couple units I'm not using.

    If your printer has wifi can't you just connect it to the same network and find it in printers under system preferences?
