    I've used PrintCentral for a few weeks now. It support most - but not all - WiFi printers. I've not yet discovered a list of 'supported' printers. As you're probably aware, if your printer is not supported, then you can print via the free app on your PC or Mac. Using this method enables you to use non-wireless printers too though, of course, your PC must be wireless enabled.

    Sorry I can't be much more help

    Unfortunately not. Bluetooth on the iPad only supports keyboards and headsets/audio. There is no support for printers or mice (for obvious reasons) or any other Bluetooth peripheral classes.

    For example, my iPad can 'see' my Sony Vaio PC, which has Bluetooth, but cannot 'connect' to it.
