    Anyone else having problems trying to print directly from the iPad? I have a HP Officejet Pro 8500A. The printer works via wireless when connected to the pc, but yet the iPad can't find it.

    EDIT: I just tried sharing the printer on the mac and the iPad still doesn't see it.

    Yea, won't find mine either. Im guessing it has to be a real wifi printer not a networked one?

    Is there a known list of AirPrint compatible printers?

    I've heard Printopia is also a good solution for Mac.
