Default printing

Probably old hat to most A 500 users, but is there an app to allow me to print through a WiFi link to an HP printer?
Thanks!

As said above, If your HP printer is Internet ready, you can use the HP ePrint application. Free. Works very well.

Your HP printer does not have to be internet ready. I have my C5180 ethernet connected to my wireless router and I am able to print to it from my A500,RAZR MAXX,NEXUS7,and Daughters REZOUND using the HP eprint app.

I just downloaded the HP ePrint Home app for android and I don't see how to connect to a local LAN printer (HP Officejet Pro L7680).

Can you elaborate on how you connected it?

Thanks!

Open up HP eprint (does not need to be registered)
Click on Settings
Click on Manage ePrinters (it should find it) if not no big deal)
Back out to main screen
Click on Documents , Select files, locate document you want to print, click on document
At the bottom of the page it should show your Printer, the down arrow button allows you to change some printer settings.
At the very bottom of the screen (where it shows document and printer)
is a white bar that says print in it, tap that bar and it should print.

Thanks, Don!

That worked great for my documents, however, is there a way to print from any application like email or web browser?

Currently when I try is says it is only going to try the Samsung printer. Is there a way to set the hp printer
as default?

Thanks again!
Joe
