    I`m looking for an app to do printing with the OTG cable, I use a wireless aircard and can`t get my wireless printer to connect. I tried Print Hand but it will only work from my Note II, but not my N7. Anyone know of any other apps for printing with the OTG cable?

    You'd need to see if the printer manufacturer has created an app to enable printing from your N7 via the OTG cable.

    I have a Brother printer and they have an app I downloaded from the Play store that allows me to print, scan, fax, etc... from my tablet. However, it works over wifi, not OTG.

    There is a generic way of printing from your tablet that is kinda hokey but it works. Look into Google "Cloud Print" which is a server that your print job is sent to which then downloads the print job to your PC so the PC can send it to the printer. http://www.google.com/cloudprint/learn/
