    I wonder if anyone has tried using Apples (Print n Share) on their Galaxy tablets?

    The Print n Share program is just for the iPad, they do have a program Print but it does not support printing a document. So it's IMHO worthless.

    I have a Galaxy Tab 2 7...I also get the stupid message telling me to buy a crap Samsung printer! (which I refuse to do)..I also use an Ipad2 which I fooled into using Apple airprint using a Netgear download (this works fine for the Ipad but not the Tab).
    There would appear to be no way of printing from a Tab to a network using IP addressing, (eg 192.168.2.12) because you still need a printer driver (according to Printbot) as my inkjet is a Brother DCP340CW there is no driver!

    yes i can confirm that there's no native printing option for android. The only way to print something out from android over wi-fi is to download paid application or use google cloud printing.

    If you happen to have an HP wireless printer the App. HP Print from the Google Play Store will work and it's a free download.;)
