    Better than nothing

    I've been hoping for an app that would allow me to print to my wireless print, this one does, sort of... I successfull sent pictures to my printer and was able to print a web page. You start the PrintShare, then go to the web page. Not convenient, but OK. Unfortunately I could not print a PDF. Tech support said it works for some Color Nooks and not for others. It does not work for mine. It also did not print a document I created with Quick Office, tech support said that was a known limitation. It did not print a document I create with Word on a laptop and copied to the Nook. Tech support said that should work, but it did not. Different error message though. Finially, it does not work with the Nooks e-mail. So it does some things, but not much. I'm hoping for a better print utility in the future, or for these shortcomings to be addressed.

    Finally I can print.

    The app just works. It found my Brother HL 2170W printer, and I was able to print in less than a minute. I figured out that I don't need to install any software on my computer, or register with their system. Please read description, it's long but helpful.

    more from this reviewer

    Not happy(still)

    **10/30/11**UPDATE: I did receive a response from Support as they had a few questions for me. I see they have announced there will be an update to the app. I'm crossing my fingers as I really would love to give a better rating!

    **10/29/11**UPDATE: I got my printer working using the PrinterShare software that I had to download and install on my desktop computer. BUT....I'm limited to HOW MANY pages I can print (20)!! It appears a person has to pay a MONTHLY fee to be able to have unlimited printing to their own printer only for the fact that the print job is going thru their servers then being pushed to the printer thru the internet. AGAIN FULL DISCLOSURE would have been nice.. Honesty and integrity is an important factor in purchasing apps. I have yet to hear back from support.

    ***10/28/11**I just purchased this app (thinking yay we can print!) but after installing it in my NC I find out that there is no drivers for my Lexmark (very open source) wireless S300-S400 series printer. Also, I tried a different driver just to see if it might work and after selecting a simple document to print a pop up for a print test came up with the option to PURCHASE a PREMIUM KEY to make it work!!?? None of this is disclosed on the app page before purchasing it. I have contacted the app maker and I am waiting a response. I will not change my review until I hear something from them.

    Not what it claims

    This app is a waste of money. Claimsit works with wifi enabled printers but doesnt guarantee it. Detects my printer but will not print to it, also keeps telling me to update drivers but stalls at 57% every time. Stalls at 54% during print job. Dont waste your money, i did and regret it!

    Great app

    I use this on my HTC Sensation 4G and my NOOKcolor. Works great on both. No problems. Could print email. I think it neees the Gmail app to print emails to use Google Cloud Print service along with the app. On my HTC it only prints Gmail emails. Good app, though. Hardly any complaints!

    Think twice before buying

    Full disclosure on extra charges should be mandatory on this product. Also, if you can not get it working or do not agree with the per sheet printed charges disclosed after app purchase you won't get your 4.99 back. In fact I did not even get a reply back when I emailed B&N. Sorry to complain but it is what it is........works for some......not for others....costs are important to some......others have more $ and do not have to worry about an undisclosed 9.00 or so per month.

    Love it on my Nook Tablet!

    This app found my printer without me having to install anything onto my computer. I found that if you use the Dolphin Browser app (which is free and I like better than the browser that comes as a default on the nook tablet) with this printer app, it makes it much more easy to print without going directly into the printer app itself and typing the url.

    While surfing the Internet on Dolphin, you can tap on Share where you will then have the option to print or email a link. Tap print and you get your print screen. Super easy.

    If you have a gmail account, you can print from your gmail as well... only you have to use gmail in your browser (it will work in either the default browser or Dolphin) but it will not work with the default email link on the nook.

    Horrible

    This does not work, this made a connection to my printer, but what came out was a page you couldn't read, my printer had plenty of ink so that was not the issue. Dont bother with this.

    Work sometimes

    This app works (sometimes). The app finds my printer right away and will send my photos to the printer just fine BUT the printer will only print half the photo. The tech support said he couldn't figure out what the problem is.

    Loaded this today and started using with my HP Photosmart All-In

    Loaded this today and started using with my HP Photosmart All-In-One without a problem. I am only interested in the "Near Print" Wi-Fi function so that is all I will comment on here. Installation was simple and fast. Because PrinterShare Mobile Print does not use the regular printer profiles nor page rendering you will want to answer "Yes" to down loading both drivers during setup or when prompted during printing the first time. I have selected web pages from the Dolphin browser and printed them and selected MS Word documents from my SD card for printing. Very easy. Start PrinterShare, select the type of item you want to print and complete the prompts. One suggestion for printing a web-page. Open the page with your browser then select "More" and "Share" PrinterShare will likely show as an option, select it and off you go. (I say likely because I am using Dolphin as a browser and it shows in it) If you select the page this way you do not have to type in the URL. There are no additional costs associated with this App when used in the "Near Print" Wi-Fi mode. Anyway, this App has solved my last issue with the Nook family. I am more than happy.

    AWESOME! I CAN PRINT FROM MY NOOK TABLET! YEA!

    Works well printing from my Nook Tablet to my wireless Brothers HL-2170W document printer. App found the printer through my wireless network. Didn't have the specific drivers for it but recommended using the generic driver setting which worked. Had success printing documents for web, although I haven't tried printing from any other apps/programs yet. After printing, I did have to reset my default printer on my laptop to the Brothers again. Don't know whats up with that. But serves my purpose without a problem for now.

    I'm impressed

    It took me quite a while to figure out exactly how to work with this app. I must admit I got quite frustrated at first. But once I figured it out, it worked perfectly. I've printed PDF, word and excel files to my wireless printer without any problems. It even duplexed (printed on both sides of the page). Money well spent as far as I'm concerned.

    Seems liKe a good idea.........however.....

    Well, I read the reviews and still i bought it. Its not that its a bad app, in fact, itruly like the idea. Problem is the print quality sucks. I printed a .doc from my laptop, then the same one from my nook. The one from the nookwith this app, was not nearlyas good quality, in fact it wa sbarely ledgeable. If they can workout the issues, it will be great. Till then, only ifnu REALLY NEED a way to print.
