This app is give me the freedom of not having to plug my phone, tablets ect. Into my printer to share photos of special moments with visiting family and friends that have came by to visit, I run to my printer, set up copies, quality ect.. All on my phone and in min I can send my leaving company with a special lil memory to take! This HP app has been my do-all, of course there's many, but this one has so many features for me that are so simply understandable, easy to use, and I have no other printer app! Thanks HP! You always make give your customers the best products and services! Full Review

Every HP printer I've ever owned has always been a great product! My two HP printers (envy 5530, photosmart 6520) work great with my Galaxy S4, S5, Note4, Tab2 Pro and Windows 10 PC! Their apps and others make them a lot faster and easier to use. This helps me to be more productive by doing more in less time! With this and the HP Smart app I can do just about anything and everything I need from my phone. So there's no more waiting for Windows to load and that in itself is just AWESOME! Kudos to you HP and keep up the great work!!! Full Review

Will not print duplex at all and "Landscape" prints in portrait. Am concerned about photo vs document settings as there's no way to select one or the other, ie no mechanism to identify a print job as a photo or document. Settings dont hold and the default is color which repeatedly needs to be reset. Something has changed re the apps effectiveness. stil doesnt work at all with Samsung print. Kindle prints in duplex and landscape. Full Review

There is some issue with my printer where it freezes. This is not an issue from the app, as it happens randomly with or without going through the app. The app has been great whenever the printer is working though. OK, for the last month July/Aug 2017 my printer has not been freezing up as it did above. (Not sure if the fix came in a printer driver update or this app update, but it is working reliably again now). Thanks, I am now very happy with how this works. Full Review

#4 Review.The app makes printing effortless.....seriously, it's one of the most important tools I use with my cell, both professionally & personally. But lately, it's been telling me it can't find the printer or that the printer is unavailable, even though the printer is fully visible to me on the app although it's shaded. After playing around with it's features it suddenly finds the printer and prints. So frustrating. I'm not even sure what it is that I've tried to make it work properly when it used to work flawlessly from the get go. Maybe the latest update?? Full Review

I love the efficiency and convenience of having my ink shipped straight to us without having to worry about a thing!! The only complaint I have is that the printer has had reprinted pages and pages that end up costing me $$ or has been unreachable - these may be printer issues, not sure?? Again, I really love the convenience of being able to change the page # plan & receiving the ink in the mail without having to shop!! Full Review

It seems to 'block' sent prints if I don't go to the notification and watch as the print goes through. Imagine doing this with each print! Also printing from drive gives and error and then if I keep on trying it will eventually go through. This all worked fine with my old samsung phone. My new galaxy seems to be too fast for the software. I see an update in your future.... Full Review

Usually works very well, save the occasional network problem. I LOVE being able to print wirelessly! Only real complaint is there should be option to SAVE DEFAULT PRINT SETTING like "draft quality." Going into additional settings to choose it EVERY time I print is a time waster for what should be a one click job. I assume that's HP's way to generate more ink purchases. Will rate 5 stars when that changes. Otherwise dependable & good! Full Review

UPDATE:I now have the galaxy s8 and this app works AMAZING. So many times I use this instead of my computer because it's much snappier and simple to use. Now if only my HP printer were as quick as the app.... I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 5, and though I don't have any problems actually printing it, when I try to print (I have only attempted printing from Word) the font is changed. I often use Times New Roman as is required in my courses, however when it prints from the phone it is in some obscure condensed font. If this was fixed I would have no problems with this app. Full Review

Great tool to have as smartphone photography has replaced cameras for those everyday moments . Once becoming familiar with settings, it is very easy to use. A suggestion I have is to make program turn "Android Print" on by default to reduce wasted ink when first using app. Another suggestion would be if HP would include optional ,very basic editing software in future versions. This would make it the perfect app. Full Review

Generally speaking it is pretty straightforward and does what it is advertised as but there are some issues that need to be addressed. 1. Each time I need to print a document I have to confirm with my printer before it will continue. That is a painstaking process. 2. There are certain files that it will not print correctly. 3. You cannot resize within the app and if your printer does not have that feature you have to take the picture or document somewhere that can... again a painstaking process. If not for these issues it would be a 5 star rating Full Review

Useful app. Getting better on each update. Works well on galaxy tab s2 and on galaxy s4. After lats update printer now only shows up for 1 to 2 sec then says unavailable. Will print if you can catch the print button in that time. Please fix this as it was great before. App much better now, my only complaint is that sometimes it takes a few mins for it to print. This could be the printer though as it is a early wifi unit. Full Review

Pretty good. Easy to use pretty much. I think the reason for my troubles with it is due to the bad internet at my school. Tech support when you call is really helpful. I wish though that they did have an online chat with the app and that the printers were compatible with Chrome but it states on the box that it is not. Other than that the actual app is great and I use it for school a lot. Would recommend it to friends and family if they have good internet connection. Full Review

The app is perfect. The only complaint which I felt to share is that while I printed my data there suddenly comes a print saying that printer update completed. I am not saying that HP should stop updating their printers rather they should update it in background and let the printer be at a halt for certain period of time till the update of the printer gets installed and then continue with the printing session ahead. Rest everything is fine and you are doing good, HP keep it up. Thanks & Regards Full Review

Pretty good. Sometimes it's not as easy to print as you'd think it would be, and you have to jump through a couple of hoops to get it to work. All devices new and up to date, Samsung Galaxy S7 on Verizon, and brand new HP OfficeJet 4650. Don't print a whole bunch so really don't know why it isn't more simple. HP, please work on your print screen and user interface, then 5 stars Update: 4 stars previously because it worked well when it could find my printer, and I have all new up to date equipment. But with the last couple of updates it seems like HP has been listening, and improved their plugin tremendously. Also especially fond of the HP Smart app, 5 stars to it as well. Thanks guys!

First the plug in recognized my printer but wouldn't print. Then plug in didn't recognize my printer at all. So I spent some time figuring out how to get it to recognize my phone- maybe 20 min. I determined that I needed to input the correct up address for my printer into the plug in. Once that was corrected, I was able to print without problem. It does take longer for the printer to print from my phone than from PC, but I am happy that I could print all my print jobs from my phone. Full Review

Works for me, everytime. And so convenient to print from the cell phone ....hp c8180 printer.. I seldom use any other print app. It's great for me... the updates continue to make it even better and more viable . You're the best of 2 good ones. Hammermill has a problem with 4 by 6 paper selection, Won't select portrait/ landscape.. Thank you. Your the very BEST.... Full Review

I loved how easy it was to set up, but I wish there were more setting options. I wish I could print in mirror image, for one. Also, a lot of my images come out blurry. I tried switching the setting that is supposed to improve that, but it didn't do anything. I'm still grateful to be able to print from my Android phone since my computer is currently out of order and this app makes that possible. Yay! Full Review

I absolutely love this app and my printer! The only thing is that you can't choose how big your pictures are. I was printing some for a photo album and had to put them in a Google doc then save it as a PDF. Also, Id like to be able to print more than one picture at a time in the app. But other than those things, the app is awesome! Full Review

After getting a new HP 5660 printer, this app has worked quite well for nearly everything. The only thing I can't get it to do is print emails from my cell phone email app. But other than that, it prints everything else quickly and easily. The only thing I would like to see added would be a way to scale a print to fit on one page or be able to pull the corners to make the print smaller or larger within the page. Full Review

I'm 47. I figured this setup out quickly using my 7 year old printer. Hint: make sure your Bluetooth setting is switched on. This is what took the longest is remembering to switch the Bluetooth on. The actual printing time is much slower. Keep in mind, your document travels through multiple servers before reaching its printer destination. Ten pages took eight minutes to print instead of about three minutes. Super excited to have found this app, my life just became easier. Full Review

New user here, but seems to work great! Pairing was simple and functions really well so far. Only thing I can think of for a possible upgrade, would be a more printer friendly option. Fit & fill options print documents quite a bit larger than expected for some reason? Or an I missing something?! Thanks for a great app! Full Review

Love this app. I use it frequently and it has always worked for me. The user interface is ok, could be improved. But app functions very well. Edit: Seems like this app doesn't work with my Note 8. App says printer isn't available, at same time printer says it has made a successful connection with my mobile phone. Worked well with Galaxy S7 Edge. Full Review

Until the last two days, I haven't had an issue. Now twice in the last two days I've printed two items and the third shows unavailable. 9/8/17 - App says "print spooler not working". Go to my printer and it is printing just fine. Also, at other times, print a doc and do not get any errors, but nothing prints. Then some time in the future, could be hours or days, the doc will print. App is quirky to say the least. Full Review

Two years since my last review, and I can still say the same exact thing.... It works at least; e-print always crashes my printer. But...it would be nice to be able to set defaults since I don't always remember to change print quality. And what's with the "Auto" setting defaulting to high quality when my printer default is draft? Also would be nice - since it's preinstalled - if it could print via internet so we don't have to install third party printing apps anyway. Full Review

Half of the time I print from my Note 5, the app tells me "printer not available." I should not have updated the app...edited 2/6/17- a few new updates and it seems to be printing more consistently now.....don't mess with it now! 5/17/17- printing well from all devices now. Thank you! FYI- it would be really helpful to have one app that printed Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, wired, nearfield, etc. Thanks!....11/15/17- still printing consistently from my Note 5. Great app!

So cool! It lets me know when cartridges are low and when they need replacing! No more running out of ink when you have that document that just has to be printed! I reordered with one touch and the new cartridges were here the next day. This is the best app on my phone. Full Review

Its actually incredibly easy to use. I didn't like it at first because it kept trying to pressure me into buying ink. So I tweaked the settings. Easy to navigate. Easy to use. So simple I can use it. Idk about all the extra stuff it does because I really just use my printer for recipes and coupons. Maybe one day I'll get bored enough to mess around with it more. I'd like to set it to default to black and white but its whatever Full Review

This app is what I use to use my HP printer. And the app is very easy to use and I Love My printer. It does so many awesome things and the print comes out very good. The only thing I would change on the app is once you selected the photo you want to print and print it, instead of how it kicks you out and makes you start over I wish it would stay on the photos you are looking thru so you don't have to search back thru all your photos again. That would be nice, other then that couldn't be happier. Unless the printer had a place to look and see how many prints you had left of your plan instead having to go to the website, that would be nice too. Overall I love this printer and app. Full Review

So far ok. But be prepared to reprint the job a few times. Sometimes the printer does not communicate well with device or vice versa. I often repeat print procedure a few times to go through specially ebay. My best solution was to send whatever I'm printing to my email then print from my email which works great. Full Review

This app is pretty good when it works. since the last two updates, it seems to have added a doppelganger printer which it says is unavailable, so i have to pick the real one from a drop down menu. It works absolutely fine after that. Better on my tablet than my phone, which is unfortunate as occasionally i like to get stuff printed whilst out to collect when i get home. more often than not it won't print anything so i leave the mobile alone. other than that its a good app. Full Review

Easy to use app. Never have a problem. Only recommendation I would make is to add a option to print multiple pictures in the app on (1) 8x11 piece of photo paper (ex. Print (2) 4x6 pictures). That would make it easier so I don't have to keep measuring and cutting the paper to suit the printer since I have more 8x11 paper than I would ever need. I think this would keep us from using other apps that seem too difficult to use and everything can be done just from HP print app Full Review

It does what I need, except the options are a bit limited. I don't like that some options are available in this app. Other options are available in another HP app. It's all spread out. And while some apps register, others don't show up. All the "direct this" & "Wi-Fi that". Have to this, and download that. I wish it was more cohesive & user friendly, the way HP used to be. But if you don't mind an extra step, this is (your only) your way to go. Full Review

Fantastic app, loved it from the get go! Saves me having to plug in my laptop into the printer to print! I have one suggestion for improvement, I noticed that when I was entering a specific range of pages, I forgot the page numbers and left the range feild blank. Then i went to close the drop down menu for printing options, but the blank feild prevented me from, so I had to put the range option back to full page range, only the could I close the menu to check the page numbers, I suggest reworking the code to allow app users to close the menu even though the page range feild is blank Full Review

A fine app that allows basic printing from your smartphone. Something I've never had before, but what works really well. But can HP confirm if the app has a double sided printing functionality that can be applied to all documents and apps? This would be very useful for helping to save paper while printing from the smartphone. Full Review

Well at first it worked really great. But now for some reason its givibg me problems like it will print successfull, and in reality the print wasnt even completed.

It's a good plug-in and I'm sure with a little more time and development it will be a great one. The ability to print rite from my phone is awesome however as of yet it does not always recognize when my printer is plugged in so not everything is easy to print. But I'm sure it will be and if I had a wireless printer the problem may not exist at all. Full Review
