Have you tried Cloud Print by Paulo Fernandes? It's free, compared with about 3.50 for Print.

thats what I use now, cloud print. I am trying out the free version with ads but so far so good. As an added benefit I can now also print from my Droid Bionic too. I think the full on version without ads is 2.99 or so. I think I'll buy it.
I had to download Google Chrome (on the PC) and enable Google Cloud Print.
It works!

Not sure if you printer is supported, but give this a try.

I haven't felt the need to print from a tablet or phone yet, but might install Cloud Print in case.

Lot's of people rave about Cloud Print, but my experience has been that results vary greatly depending on your printer. Although it's the only one of several print apps I trried that could even make my printer respond, the results were totally unacceptable.

I can't help you, but I think it would help others help you if you told us what app you're trying to use. Is it the Cloud Print I mentioned, or something else?

Did you read the instructions? It's kind of funny but you click on "share" from within an app, then you share your document with cloud print. Different apps do things differently so it's not all the same, not very intuitive. Sometimes you have to send it, not share it, without even opening it. Kind of klunky but once you figure it out it works.

well i did the share what happens is i go to share and no matter what way i chose, pdf or direct web page or download it sends it but dont print. The direct only show 3 dots on the screen no page. I dont get why motoprint works wifi so flawlessly and samsung cant get it. I love this tablet just want to print from it.
Are you guys opening the program first?

Heres what I see. While looking at this page I pressed the menu button at the bottom, then share. To print this page I would press cloud print.

Haha well it seems there just might be an argument for that screen cap button that everyone complains about. It is in the way but its pretty handy too.

well my menu is on the top, but same thing. I woulld post a screen cap but i honestly dont know how. It asked for a url and my pic is on the tab.

But when i hit share then cloud it askes what format. Pdf normal pdf newspaper direct print or download and print. None of them work. The direct print opens cloud printer and shows 3 dots. Nothing else. The pdf's fail. And download and print fails as well. I did print a xls sheet. Of course all 47 pages printed due to not being able to highlight and print, thats another story.

Im thinking 3.2 may be the issue. I am at a loss.

Photobucket.

But something's different.
When I press cloud print it asks me if I want to print the web page or just text.
Maybe you should look at the pc end, make sure chrome is running, in the background, and your printer and eveything is ok.
I wish I could be of more help. I've had my tab since Christmas.

Yes.

I tried it. I saw the three dots. I chose direct print.
Hit the down arrow in the lower left corner of the screen to get rid of the keyboard then you can see the buttons at the bottom. Hit print. Then print again. I swear you have to press about 5 or 6 buttons to print a page. Its not easy thats for sure.
I'm starting to go through windows withdrawals. Haha

Haha my bad.I finally went and looked at what I was printing.
At first I thought the printer was spitting out blank pages.
Looking closer, guess what it was printing. 3 dots. Haha I typed something in front of the dots and it printed out.
I ended up on the last option, download then print. Make sure you choose the right printer and setup.
I fell for that one already. This is really way harder than it needs to be.

ok i download and nothing. Cant even find it. Also i am using docs to go and quick office. Both wont print. One says it is but then i get an error with xl files. Docs to go does print but 42 pages. You cant do print margines. Downloading from a secure web site does not work. This sucks. I reviewed all settings and there right. Has anyone had success printing from a secure site or web pages. And quick office as well?

Cloud Print is not exactly intuitive!! A lot of nearly blank paper spewed from my printer before I realized how to use the Print Text option. You have to select and copy the text first, then paste it above your keyboard (where you saw the 3 dots). Printing the web page is not always successful using PDFmyURL, but it's probably the easiest choice when it does. I haven't tried the download and then print option. FWIW, I print to my wireless Canon printer.

Default rooted phone - re-added all apps except one - please help

Hi guy's, I rooted my phone yesterday and noticed after switching to the new ROM I had, that I had to re-ad all the apps I had on my previous one I backed up. thing is I'm using printshare to print from my phone and it is the only app. that works for me (sorry it doesn't work for some of you). Yet I can't print from my phone on the new ROM without me buying the premium key again, is there some kind of way for me to get the premium key I paid for transferred to my sd card so I can use it with the new ROM I have? It's saved on the old one, but I don't know how to transfer it to the new one and I don't want to let the developers know my reason for wanting to do this because I don't know what there say or do about my phone being rooted. Does anyone know a way or should I just keep shopping around for a ROM I like and then buy the premium key again with the one I settle with.?

I don't know why the developer would care, but if you want to do it yourself, just search for com.dynamixsoftware.printershare.premium.apk using a file manager. Once you find it, there should be an option for "install" (there is using "My Files" and "Super Manager").

Edit: Octavia, Just noticed that you posted this to someone else's thread. In the future, I think it would be better to ask a question by starting a new thread.

why do I need to use file manager to search for the file, it looks like a file that can be searched on the internet? or is that how the file looks on my phone to find it. Also do I need to be in cwm mode to find this file, if so then how do I copy it, if not then thank you for you're help.

Please disregard that question, upon learning how to add adobe flash player to my phone using root file manager, I came across that file you mentioned though there was nothing to install or copy from it (no premium key). I did find out from another response in a different forum about the premium key that actually surprised me of working. The reply I got was to simply try and print from the phone and when it asks to purchase the premium key again to continue on. I noticed that doing so that I didn't have to pay for it again, all I had to do was install it and was able to print from my phone, I never knew that if you buy a key from google play for whatever particular app. that you don't have to buy it again, that it's recorded somewhere on you're account that you've already purchased it. I wonder if others who purchase from there and have rooted phones know about this also.........anyway thanks for you're help.

Yep, that's how the Google Play store works. Once you buy an app, you can re-download it anytime. If you should do a factory reset on your device,, which deletes everything, you go to the Play Store and all your apps are listed.
I also use Cloud Print. I have an HP printer thats about 7 years old, connected to my computer via USB. Cloud Print works great for me. While the setup instructions state that the printer must be turned on and Chrome up and running, I found it not necessary. When I hit print, my printer turns on and does it's thing.
