    Hi, what app would you recommend to print from the Ipad using a wi-fi printer without AirPrint

    Printopia works reliably for me on my printer and it also allows sending any printable document to your computer's various apps and folders.
    I use it with a Mac.

    If your printer is a popular brand, look for an app in the App Store that can assist printing to many models in their range. For example, Epson have the iPrint app. Try searching the brand name.

    Good advice - not sure w/ non-AirPrint printers how many manufacturer's offer their own apps for printing from the iPad to their models?

    But for me, FingerPrint from Collobos has been an easy solution for my two printers (inkjet & laser) - follow the link to see if their app (downloaded to your computer only, and NOT the iPad) may suit your needs? Good luck - :)

    Well, recent wireless models that are non AirPrint can often be covered. My Epson NX420 is not AirPrint capable, but works brilliantly with the IPrint app. It means I don't need my computer to be on to print, which is as close to AirPrint you'll get without being AirPrint compatible. The bonus (for me) is that I can also use the app to scan straight to my iPad.

    I cannot speak for every manufacturer, but Epson does a great job. I do know that Canon and HP have their own apps, users just need to check the list of compatible models.

    I use Fingerprint also on my PC, works great with my Ipad. Got the recommendation for it on the forum here. I use it with my Brother all in one laser printer.

    Hi
    Do you have to have you iPad jailbroken to use fingerprint ? I can not find it in the app Store.

    Fingerprint is a PC program, I believe. You will have to google it.

    Print N Share or Printer Pro. Both work. I have a HP non air-print and have no problems.
