    Is there a printing app that is like printershare, but doesn't cost thirteen dollars ? What I need is one that will recognize any printer that is WiFi enabled, or connected to a WiFi network, like printershare ? But cheaper.

    I have printer share and it isn't that great for me either. It won't print to my WiFi Kodak printer witch is new. They don't update with enough printers. So i want something else too. Post back if you find anything.

    I've had it for awhile. To Mr it is kinda pointless if you have to turn on your PC to get it to work. You could just email it to yourself or look it up on there and print it.

    I am able to print to any nearby wifi printer, or any printer connected to a wifi network. Or at least i could before the trial ran out. That was the functionality i want. To print to ANY wifi enabled printer. It works(ed) for me, just expensive.

    Either of you every try cloud print? It works through a setting in chrome (google cloud print) but chrome doesn't have to be running for it to work. I can print from ANYWHERE!! LOVE its functionality (still in beta)

    YEs, i use it also. Yes, you can print from ANYWHERE, but not TO anywhere.

    Printershare lets me do that.

    I haven't tried it yet but I'm going to. Some reason printershare won't send to my WiFi Kodak printer without my pc being on. Will cloud do that?

    HP has an app that works, but of course that only works for HP printers. A quick search found an app for Kodak called Kodak Pic Flip which was released today and should work for Kodak printers.

    I tried Printbot, but it will not recognize my printer. I might just have to pony up and pay for Printershare.
