    Printing to a Kodak printer wirelessly

    I understand Kodak has an app in the app store for this, the hubby has used it. But I want to print Pages documents and to our new shiny wireless kodak 5210. I know it doesn't support AirPrint.

    Printcentral has failed me so I'm assuming, there isn't another app that would help me. The print apps aren't cheap so I don't want to carry on buying more failed apps.

    Hubby says 'you can just send them via email to laptop' but this defeats the main purpose of buying my wireless printer last week. :/

    I have a Kodak too but sadly the only way to print from it is when a computer connected to it is on. And then you just can't print every type of documents.

    Why has print central failed you? I don't have a kodak but I have a wireless hp on my home wireless network and I can't print fine with print central....I even downloaded "we print" on my laptop (main computer for my network) and I can be on any page in any program, any Internet site and click print and it will say "via print central" in the spot where u select printer....then as soon as u open print central app it pops up the print screen and lets u print that document u sent to it while u were in whatever other program, app, Internet page etc....tad a!

    PrintCentral works fine for me too - for my Samsung Color Laser Printer. As other members have suggested, you may need to download and install the PrintCentral app 'We Print' on your PC, if PrintCentral can't print *directly* to your printer. We Print makes your PC 'look' like an AirPrint-type printer. One 'issue' I've had is that, in iOS 4.2, PrintCentral must be running as a background task.

    Other Forum members have suggested that the iPad OS only *actually* keeps a couple of the apps active that appear in the multi-task menu - I'm not sure if this is correct, but I've found that you sometimes need to 're-activate' PrintCentral (i.e. by re-opening it) before trying to print.

    Good Luck

    yea i emailed them about it having to be running in the back to get the "via print central" to come up when you hit print. They said they were aware and it would be in the next update, which i jus got days ago but it didnt fix it, still have to open app central and keep it running in the back ground.

    I have a wireless kodak printer not sure of the model but I can print direct from the iPad to the printer but the computer has to be on for some reason.
