    Hi, I'm new to the app store and I'm now sure that I know how to find the apps I want. I have a bunch of document on my Ipad that needs to be printed. Is there a way to print directly from my iPad without using the desktop (laptop)?

    You can purchase Print N Share from the app store, $10 USD, will print to any wireless printer. Works great.

    I have read the iPad 2 manual and followed the printing instructions, but my iPad doesn't find my printer (which is plugged into the TimeCapsule via USB cable, is "shared" in my MacBook system preferences, and i can print on via the network from two other machines). So why can't my iPad see it?
    Any help gratefully received.

    To print from an iPad you need to have an AirPrint compatible printer, if you want to print through your computer to the printer buy the Mac application pritopia (I have it and it works flawlesy but your computer must me switched on).

    I use Print Bureau for this and has always worked great, I have a Laser printer from HP which is not wireless and I can print without any issues.

    If you do not want to buy a new printer then you can just send your documents via email to a computer and then print or put on a external hard drive and take it to a special store to get them printed.
