    Is there an app that will allow me to choose black only to print from iPad Air to canon Pixma mg5520? Can only find the Pixma one that doesn't give a choice of using colour or not
    Thanks,
    M

    I have a Pixma printer and I went to the computer and under the print properties you can chose your ink selection. I haven't used color In almost a year. Don't seem to have that selection on the Canon ipad ap.

    There's this app, which will let you print b/w, and it works with Canon printers:
    Prime Print Lite

    This is the free version, there's a paid one as well.

    I tried it with my Canon printer, and it worked. I needed two attempts to print in black. Hopefully you'll get it working as well.

    I print black only from the iPad. Cant figure out why it wont work for you as you are changing the printer properties it should print black from any source then.
