    Hi everyone I am deni121 (Denis), and I am a new member.
    I have been struggling for weeks to set up the printer to my iPad.
    Everything takes longer than usual because I am disabled.
    But this is now becoming annoying.
    So if someone could help I would much appreciate it.
    I have a google cloud ready printer (a Kodak wifi office jet 2170).
    I have an account with google and have tried numerous apps but with no luck.
    Please I would be most greatful. Thanks

    Welcome to the iPad Forum. Hope you enjoy your stay.

    To print from the iPad you need a printer with AirPrint capability

    You can find a complete list here: iOS: AirPrint 101

    Hi Denis - also a warm welcome to the forum! :)

    As already stated an 'Air Print' compatible printer or a computer attached to the printer running a program that mimics 'Air Print' is needed - your printer does not seem to be on the list so the second option suggested may be one solution?

    Please check my post in THIS THREAD - good luck and please post back if still having problems; there are plenty of people here that have solved printing from the iPad - good luck!
