    Printing To Wireless Printer

    Hello,
    I did a quick search on my DroidX and found there are a bunch of truly free apps that will let you print. I printed from my phone to my HP printer and it looks awesome!

    Does anyone know if any of the apps are capable of printing to a shared printer without a client on the shared PC?

    I might just have to upgrade to a Wifi printer for this (if the above isn't possible).

    I'd appreciate an app which allows printing to a print server as well. My old printer isn't wireless, and is connected to a PC. The PC is hard-wired to the wireless router.

    HP Print works great on my wireless printer. A breeze to install and it instantly found my printer and connected to it.

    The free version of the PrinterShare app only works with wireless printers.

    Any feed back would be welcome.

    Very nice forum you have here!

    Thanks!

    Bill

    The paid version of PrinterShare allows you to install a bit of software on the pc your printer is connected to and connect to it. You have to create an account with them, but you simply supply a name and email address and they send you login info.

    Haven't actually tried it because my printer is wifi, but the wifi feature works quick as heck!

    Thanks, Jonny.
    <<The paid version of PrinterShare allows you to install a bit of software on the pc your printer is connected to and connect to it.>>

    Yes, but, correct me if I'm wrong: apparently from what I've read, this creates a print job on the print server, and you have to go to the PC and print the job out. That's inconvenient. I was hoping for something a little more-- lazy?

    Thanks again.

    Sorry, like I said, I only have a wifi printer. If that IS the case, I wouldn't pay for it. Haha! It's worth it for me with wifi, but I wouldn't want to have to click to print on the pc...

    No, sending a print job prints out immediately without user input needed. I do it frequently when my wife is home and needs something printed, I just pull it up on my phone and use printershare to print it out. First time I did it it gave her a bit of a scare as my printer just started printing....
    I've also printed plenty of stuff and have it waiting on the printer output tray when I get home. Standard USB printer connected to my primary PC....and printershare app on the Droid and printershare server app running on the PC.

    Your PC of course has to be on and obviously your printer as well.

    Printer share lets you print to any installed printer on a pc. I print to a few network printers at work and wi-fi at home.
