    I just bought my ipad and really have not yet turned it on. I want to be able to print from it. The people at the apple store sold me a printer. I really do not need more printers! :) Is there an app or some way to print from the ipad to my network printer without going through another computer on the network. There are usually no computers on and I would hate to turn one on just to print. Kind of defeats the purpose of the ipad. I looked at printcentral but I think it needs a computer. Fax print and share pro looks like it may work.

    Has anyone done this? What are you using for it.

    Thanks,

    You are correct, it needs a powered-up pc. The only way I have found uo to now is to use a wifi printer such as Epson Workforce. Disappointing, but there you are.

    BTW if you hear of a way to use a network printer, I would be pleased to hear about it.

    Good luck with your iPad...love mine!
