Printing for dummies?

    New to Android from Apple and I don't get why printing is so complicated! I have an Acer Iconia and an HTC Vivid. I have an HP Photosmart with ePrint but the ePrint isn't set up yet.

    I used the app OfficeSuite Pro (trial) to type a simple word doc. I tried HP ePrint Home and Business but it gives me an error as soon as I hit the print button. I then set up Google Cloud printing and used the Cloud Print app. Once I actually found my document (in the download file??) I was able to finally print it.

    Is there not an easier way to send something from my tablet (or phone) to my printer through the wireless network without the need for it to go to Google or HP or through my PC?

    I found an old thread about PrinterShare being a good one but it's $12.95 now - ouch! And I still don't know if it would omit all the middle activity.

    Help? And thanks :).

    For my wireless HP ePrinter in my home network I've run 'HP ePrint Home&Biz' run on three HTC phones without problems.
