    Wow!

    Just lost the ability to print with "Print n Share!"

    Upgraded to ios5 and Bam! I can no longer print.

    Am I late to this party or are others experiencing the same thing or is it just me?

    My o My, please help!

    Thanks,

    Andy

    I also lost tha ability to print from my idevices. I was using AirPrint activator, the hack you run on your computer to make a non AirPrint printer work with AirPrint. It worked fine before the upgrade ios5 and iTunes 10.5. But don't work at all now. I don't want to spend another couple hundred bucks on a new printer.

    You can purchase fingerprint for $10...it works just like the utility you used with 4.0...just sucks it's not free this time.

    No need to buy a new printer. Instead, spend $20 on this software:

    You can print from any iOS device to any printer that your Mac can print to, and you can also print directly to your Mac, Dropbox, or Evernote.

    i got an Epson Airprint compatible printer from best buy for $69.99 with black and color cartridges. Considering I needed ink anyway, it was well worth it for me to stop messing with the hacks and just get a new printer. Depends on your printing needs though. I print out airline tickets and coupons and scan things once in awhile.

    I did the same. Bought a HP D110 for $69 from Amazon and it shipped free. It's an All-In-One. My iPad connects wirelessly with the printer. No computer needed. No USB cable needed

    Still works fine for me with ios5 and my iphone 4. Turn airprint activator off, then on again. If that doesnt work, delete printer, and rediscover it again on your mac, and then set up airprint activator again.
