    Are there currently any apps in the market where you can send a document, email, gmail chat, etc. from your phone to your printer. I saw something awhile back but cant remember it.

    printershare was worth paying for to me, have couple networked printers here at home and installed the client app on server so I have access to any of them at any time.

    Printershare is the only I could find that worked. It did not work with a Brother printer, but it did work with an HP6500 printer. Works well to print wireless, although you have to print from the Printershare app.
    Other way is to print through a computer in the network. (You do not need a WiFi printer with a recognized driver.) This works well, but only gives you 100 prints and then you must purchase more print authorizations. It may be worth it for some.
    BTW--Printershare has an extensive list of printers that are recognized by Wifi.

    if you buy the droid app you can print to the network pc w/o affecting the 100 limit. that limit is to print from the pc to another networked offsite printer.
    put almost 200 pages through mine so far and my client app still lists 100 available.
    my printers are not wifi so I have to use this method.

    If you use Bonjour to add printers to your PC , you don't need the PC application.

    Anyone running 2.1 with a functioning printershare? I had it working great until I installed the 2.1 ROM. It FC's before even getting going. Thoughts?


    No, I could print to either of my 3 printers and they are all plugged directly in to my switch.

    Nevermind, I guess one of the latest updates fixed it.
    So consider this a +1 for PrinterShare.
