    Printer apps on GS3

    I was wondering what printing apps people are using on the GS3.
    I have a network attached HP printer I was hoping to print too from my phone.
    Anyone have any suggestions?

    Check to see if your printer supports the official HP app(s). If it does then you can just use that. It's what I used on my TF300 for printing (well the EPSON app), and it's great. If that doesn't work give Printer Share a try.

    PrinterShare Mobile Print is by far the best printing app out there that I've come across. The full version is a little pricey ($12.95), but if you do a lot of printing, it could be worth it. I got the app a year or so ago when the Amazon Appstore had it has their free app of the day (it's definitely one of the best ones they've had). It's worked with every networked printer I've tried it with, even my parents' 15-year-old HP.

    I'm sure there are other, less expensive options out there, but I haven't tried any of them since I have PrinterShare for free. I'm sure some other members might be able to point some of those out. Also, I know that several printer companies have their own mobile printing apps that are supposed to work with their printers. Here's HP's printer app, which may or may not work with your printer.
    Current lineup: Galaxy S5, iPhone 5S, Note 10.1 (2014)

    I just tested with Printer Share and it finds my printer and tested fine as well. I will also check out HP's site to see if my printer is supported but I bet its not as its a few years old officejet.
    Thanks for the info.

    I cannot use the hp app as it does not support my printer the old iprint app from hp used to work on my motorola droid it's no longer available. Ah well the HP current app only supports printers that are web enabled. The software does not even search the local network.
    Have to get printer share mobile it just works. Worth the money.

    If you still have your OG Droid you cold just copy the apk file and move it over.
