    Ipad2-Canon PIXMA

    I'm new to the forum and want to say Hi to everyone!
    Does anyone know if I can use wirelessly Canon PIXMA MX 870 printer with iPad 2 ?
    We have one stationary Dell and iPad 2 , so I was wandering if I can connect printer to computer by wire and
    also can use this printer from IPad over WiFi. Any suggestion ?
    Thank you,
    Alex

    I have a Canon PIXMA, though a different model (MG5220). It's a wireless printer but not an AirPrint compatible one (those appear to be HP printers for the most part). So I can't use AirPrint to do the job but as the saying goes, there's an app for that. The app I bought is Print n Share. With Print n Share I can send whatever I want to print from my iPad wirelessly, via my home network. Setup was a snap. Bottom line, it works like AirPrint would work, without buying an AirPrint printer.

    Before getting the Canon I was using an Epson printer attached to an iMac's USB port. Print n Share worked on that configuration too, though the iMac had to be on and awake when I wanted to print. That was a satisfactory arrangement; I'd still be using it if the Epson hadn't begun to fail after many thousands of pages.

    The app costs about $5 US but I thought it was worth it. Others here will chime in too...

    I just read that there's a free app from Canon that lets you print pictures WIFI from iPad to PIXMA. Canon Easy-Photo Print. Look in the App Store. It doesn't look like it will print documents. Good luck and welcome to the iPad Forum.

    Hi. I have the same model printer and just purchased the Print n Share app. The app doesn't recognize my printer, at least it doesn't "find" it when searching. Could you tell me how you set it up?
    TIA!

    I have both the Cannon MG 5220 and the Cannon Iepp app. I can't seem to get my iPad to print. Can you help? Much appreciated.
