    I have an HP Photosmart C4780. It's wireless. Does anyone if it'll work with Ipad 2? Mine hasn't arrived yet.

    Yes, it can print from your iPad to your wireless printer as long as the wireless printer is being read by your iPad.

    I have a wireless HP printer (C7200 series) and my iPad doesn't seem to see it...? :confused:

    Get the print and share app. Can print to "ANY" wireless printer. Not just airprint capable printers. It's the best around!

    Sent from my Jailbroken IPad on 4.2.1 ;-)

    If you have a Mac try Printopia. I use it with three HP printers on my home network.
    Otherwise, Google iPad print pc and you will see several options.
    Good luck,

    I can vouch for Print-n-Share as an excellent App. It's well worth the price and does a lot more than printing from any WiFi printer.

    Does this app still work? I hear a lot about other apps from the same company not working anymore since their last upgrade

    It works fine - except that you now can't do in app printing - and no app can now after the latest set of upgrades - except from within their own app - i.e. an app can't install itself in the print menu of another app

    Outside my iPad, or was it inside?

    Print'n'Share still supports AirPrint, meaning that the printer shows up in apps such as Pages, but after pressing print, one gets automatically redirected to Print'n'share and then has to press print again. But the app last got updated in January, which may explain why the feature hasn't been removed yet.

    Another interesting feature is, that when Print'n'share is running on one iPad, another iPad without Print'n'Share can still print. Print'nshare integrates itself as a printer into any iOS device on the same network.

    Wow - those are some seriously clever guys - OK, get Print N Share before they remove the in app printing feature. twerppoet has speculated that PrintCentral and Print N Share use an undocumented API in iOS to integrate themselves into the Print menus of apps that support in-app printing and that the 'App Police' have told them to remove this feature.

    Officially, the only HP printers that natively support the iPad (and iPhone) are the newest models that state they have "e-Print" technology built in.

    I have one of these printers, and it works pretty seamlessly. e-Print also lets you set up an email address that the printer checks every so often, and you can email pictures, documents or whatever from *any* device capable of emailing, and the printer will have it ready for you within a few minutes.

    Of course you can still get printer apps from the app store as others have said.

    That's really cool n smart. So as long as iOS on same network as the one with printnshare, printing can be done with other devices. Ingenious!

    Jailbroken...need I say more ;-)
