    Me like a dummy didn't transfer my purchased apps over before the software update because I had never done his before so I had to reinstall all my apps....im pretty much done downloading all my apps beside my flagship "print central" I guess since they did away with it there's noway to get it back huh?! Print n share is the newer one by them right? Is it pretty easy to set up and do I use we print for that also?

    Thanks for the update - there a lot of PrintCentral users out there who have been wondering what had happened to it. Good to know.

    What does a printing app do exactly? Mine just prints stuff without me having to use an app.

    OK - then you must have an AirPrint compatible printer. The trouble is that the iPad will only *directly* print to AirPrint printers. Non-AirPrint printers require a printing app that 'converts' the AirPrint printing protocol to a form that non-AirPrint printers 'understand'. PrintCentral is one of the most popular printing apps because it 'pretends' to be an AirPrint printer and inserts itself into the print menu of iPad apps that support in-app printing.

    Now - I couldn't have that less clear, even if I'd tried......

    Hopefully, over the coming months and years, more and more printers will support the AirPrint standard.

    No, that was very clear. I bought a printer that said it worked with the iPad so I understand now that's why I don't need an app. I was thinking maybe it gave some more elaborate options than just printing (B&W vs. color, for example).

    Thanks for the clarification.

    Ok now the App sucks! Before last weeks update I could print from my email app on the iPad, or from any webpage I wanted to without putting a "z" in front of the http in order for it to open in the print central app browser section to print it. So when I emailed them this morning asking what was up with this, I got this....

    So can you still print via the AirPrint option?

    I can't with Print'n'Share, even though it was last updated in January. So I think Apple broke the AirPrint for third party apps with the iOS 4.3 release.

    I printed on Sunday using Print'nShare under version 4.3. I loaded the new software update last night and have not tried to print yet. I will give it a try when I get home tonight.

    Sure hope it works because my daughter and I use it alot.

    Well the recent comments look good for print n share, so your probably good as print central comments clearly left a lot of people pissed.

    No, they don't. The latest iPF update didn't mention that it adds admob ads.
