    Printing from iPad 2

    I still have not received my new iPad, so am learning from what I can read. I haven't seen much on how to print from an iPad. I have a Brother network printer and would like to be able to print to it. Any feedback on how I can do that?

    Thanks!

    I am no expert on this but I think that if your printer isn't wifi then you can't print direct but you can use dropbox app so that you can use your computer to print whatever you need from your iPad. It will be easier to explain once you have your iPad in front of you although there are a number of threads on here which cover the subject.

    I use PrintBureau on my IPad 1. Works fine for me.

    Well, it is wireless, so I suppose that is a good start

    I wish I could help further but that's the end of my knowledge on this subject, d'oh......there are a number of print apps on the app store, I would have a look through them, alternatively google iPad+"your printer model" which may come up with some wireless magic advise.

    Good luck.

    Print n Share is currently the most popular app for printing. It works by inserting itself into the iPad's native AirPrint capability. I will support most wireless printers. For the rest, and printers that are not wireless it can go through a computer on the same network to print, when you install a client program on that computer.

    It is not a perfect solution, but it's pretty good (so I hear). The app has to be working in the background before you can print. The only better solution is to buy one of the few HP AirPrint compatible printers.

    Awesome answer! I was just poking around and saw were prin -n- share was integrated with Airprint in Pages. I thought that was cool.

    I've been using print-n-share for about a week and so far I love it. It recognizes all of the printers I have on my home network without any problems and prints to them perfectly from within an app and even when I want to print a web page. And for small additional fee ($0.99) you can print anything to a PDF. I give 4.5 stars out of 5!

    It's pretty much the same answer you'll get from most forum members, at least if they've been here for a while. I just happened by first. I don't even use the app, though I'd pick it up quickly enough it I decided I needed to print from my iPad.
