    I'm not really familiar with the app, but i started using google's new print feature amd it works great.
    I know you spent a few bucks on that app, but I would recommed you check it out.
    You can send the doc that you want to print out to your gmail account, and from there you can print it out.
    It works great.

    Accordlayingkit, I also have a HP wireless printer,its a D100a photosmart all in one,the printer is working fine from within my own network,I can send a print to the printer from my bedroom or basement,before I loaded the Print Central App I could send emails from my iPad but its stopped working. Its weird because when I use the test pages from the Print Central it prints the test page in print and also a second page of a picture of a rainbow,(matter of fact I have about 20 page of test runs). The HP print center has a server problem as its had a yellow banner up for most of the day so that procedure is also down for me for sending emails,which has no bearing on the print central app. Any ideas please let me know.

    So when your in the print central app and in your email section what does it do when u try to print a email? I haven't had any problems with mine so I don't know a whole lot about trouble shooting it but I can always give suggestions. I also downloaded the "we print" software from them also to my desktop and know I can print from anywhere and don't even have to be in the print central app...well actually when im anywhere online, or in pages app or anywhere else on ipad I jus select print and it sends it to print central and as soon as I open print central app, my print document pops up and I just select print and it prints. Without "we print" I could only print email within print central or if I was on a webpage I would have to put the letter "z" infront of the http I believe it was letter z and it would redirct me to print central app browser section so I could print. I actually synced my dropbox account to my print central app also...

    I downloaded We-Print the same day I purchased Print Central and its on all of my three computers. My wifes iPad works fine but not mine,only the test page prints,no web page or emails. Another thing,on the web page of web print its says..to print a web page Open Print Central, then Open Safari and print the page from Safari,how does one open another Program (Safari) without the other one closing,it says you must have Print Central running. I will remove the program from my iPad today and then re-load it and see what happens.

    Do you have iOS 4.2 - the multi-tasking iPad OS? You need this version of the OS for PrintCentral to work with the iPad's in-app printing. If you do, then you can hit the 'Home' button twice to open the multi-tasking bar at the bottom of the screen. You need to be able to see PrintCentral there in the list of running tasks.

    If you don't have iOS 4.2 then you'll have to print the documents from PrintCentral itself or use its in-built web browser.

    You probably know all this - so please accept my apologies if you do.

    Thanks for the info Tim,you are correct I have all the up to date software installed,I never gave the multi-tasking a thought,and thats the only way it can be done. I will put the Print Central back on today and give it another test drive.

    Thanks again,

    Well I installed Print Central again and did a Sync on the iPad, I clicked on the print Icon while reading the post from Tim and a new Icon popped up which I had never seen before and it said Printing your documents to your printer,I clicked on it and it said 6 pages in the queue and it started printing all 6 pages,I didn't have the heart to stop the printing as I wanted it to go through the whole cycle to make sure things were working correctly. Lets hope it works for emails and other documents.

    Print central and weprint work well through my iMac, only problem is if iMac goes to sleep, you have to wake it up to print.
