    Question Printing from TF 201

    I am a newbie to android... My husband got a Prime for me for Christmas to help with the online class I'll be taking starting in a couple of weeks. He got the dock/keyboard for me so I can take the tablet to other classes but still be able to do papers, etc usinng the keyboard.

    Now my question for all you "experts"

    Do you have an app you would suggest for printing from my HP Officejet 4500??? I've tried setting up the Google Cloud print but my OLD Windows machine (it is 8 years old!!) just doesn't work... so HELP!!!

    Thanks in advance!!

    Did you install Chrome on your old PC? It should work if it can run Chrome.

    Regardless, you can grab the app PrintBot. This supports the OfficeJet 4500. I am not familiar with that printer, but if it is not a network or WiFi printer it will most likley have to be shared on your network with windows file and printer sharing to work with any apps.

    I use an app called PrinterShare, it's in the Market. There is a free version and a premium version...about $15 dollars if I remember. Works great with the Prime. The one short coming I've experienced is you have to save your document/picture etc to your Prime's memory before you can print. The printer interface uses the "saved" document on your Prime (whatever folder you saved it to) to print...not the one you may be looking at on your screen...no big deal.

    I'm not certain what you are trying to print or from where, but I have never had to go to that much trouble using Printshare, (paid). If Printshare has a printer selected in advance and the app has the ability to share, then share with Printshare works for me.

    You may want to try this too - if your printer is supported:

    You're probably right. I just haven't been smart enough to try the "share" function. I use the app on my Razr and the Prime...it works great...I guess you can learn something everyday by reading these forums...thanks.
