    Anything out there to allow printing to a network printer? Seems like it would be a useful thing to have.

    my printers are on a wi-fi network ( printserver) that would be cool to print from phone on wi-fi.
    this way I can put all the printers in the closet and get them out of the way-no wires

    I use Printer Share and it works great. I've printed things at home and also at a friends house with no problems. I like it!

    Are you using a wifi (direct) printer, or one slaved to a PC/Mac?

    Another vote for PrinterShare, works great over WiFi or 3G to my Office network.

    Cool beans man! I couldn't get it to work, so I sent feedback from the app, and within seconds someone sends me an email asking what help I need. we exchanged a couple emails, I did some things (I was supposed to do in the first place), and everything is hunky dory!

    Nice app and thanks for the lead OP.

    For some reason, I can't get Printshare to work. My phone cannot find my wireless printer. The printer is on wifi (blue light on). My wifi laptop can print to the wireless printer. Any ideas? Thanks

    Will either of these Apps allow you to connect to a printer connected via USB to a PC on a WiFi network? IOW, the printer itself is NOT wireless, but the PC it's connected to is acting as a print server on the network.

    Yes you can print through a network with PrintShare, I have not done this personally.
